The first American-made Kalashnikovs are now for sale

The first American-made Kalashnikovs are now for sale


I'm not sure if this has been posted yet. If it has...., then delete, move or lock accordingly. The U.S. made Kalashnikov AK-47 is now for sale. No price has been mentioned. They will be available at a number of retail outlets.

http://money.cnn.com/2015/06/30/news...lashnikov-usa/



" Kalashnikov USA announced on Tuesday that it is now selling AK-47 assault rifles and shotguns that have been manufactured at a U.S. factory.

The Kalashnikov USA web site provides a menu of two rifles and two shotguns, all semiautomatics. One of the rifles features a curved, banana-style high-capacity magazine with 30 rounds. "

That excerpt was clearly not written by somebody who is familiar with these guys.aside from that, I'm happy to see it happen hopefully they are well made.

I hope the quality is good, I've been saying I was going to buy another AK for a while. Hopefully they'll be quality guns.

They were the importer for Kalashnikov Concern and I suppose by that have the right to use the name, but are they building these to the exact standards of the Izhmash made rifles? Do they have hammer forging machinery?

'For sale' and 'no price' are kinda mutually exclusive.

what I see on Slickguns points to Classic Firearms. Classic Firearms page uses the model number US132Z and it uses the model number IZ132Z on the same page.

There is no mention of being US made, and it says manufacturer is Izhmash...so I am not even sure we can be certain that is the US made version.

I double checked, and it looks like you're correct. Sorry about the misinformation. I've been looking, and don't see it for sale yet, but will keep looking. It's definitely on my list.

A US made AK? Now that's just un-American...

Poorly written article with links to misleading, poorly written anti-2nd amendment articles.

Hasn't Century been claiming to sell 100% American made AK's for a couple of years now?

They have, and Palmetto State Armory has sold a 100% US made AK for a couple of months.

I think the thread title is saying, first American made guns with the name Kalashinkov on them.

Several different AK's have been made in the US for a long time. This 'Kalashnikov USA' has no connections with the actual Kalashnikov concern. Their rifles may be OK, but it's not hard to screw up an AK. I thought a lot of their rifles were still Saiga builds too.

Is a "Kalashinkov" better than a "Kalashnikov"?

Honestly, once you've given away, sold or provided the tooling to make @ 100,000,000 of something, it's a little late to go all "copyright infringement" on other companies for using the design and tooling that YOU provided to them.
