5000 rounds stress tests, set the new standard for rifles testing. These tests are simply “golden mine” of unbiased information about rifles performance and wear of those rifles internal components.
We want to continue to go this path, to give AKOU members the best feedback possible on tested rifles.
So, it is time to give Power To The People again – 5000 Rounds Test – Next “Victim” Selection Vote (3rd Edition) starts now!
Voting IS CLOSED NOW!
We want to start this process early, so it will give us a time to collect money to purchase rifle and ammunition for it. Unfortunately, we are not millionaires…
THOSE WHO WILL DONATE OR MAKE A PURCHASE AT AKOU STORE DURING THE VOTING PERIOD (AND ONLY THOSE), WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY ENROLLED INTO THE GIVEAWAY*!
*If rifle will survive testing and it will be still operational and safe to use!
Choices are as follow (in random order – pictures and prices below were shamelessly taken from Atlantic Firearms and Palmetto State Armory websites):
We can do this only because of your support for AK Operators Union Store and your donations (to donate just click “Donate” button- it is serviced by secure server).
I voted PSA because now that we got our laughs from the I.O., it’s time to see whether or not PSA’S long awaited AK can live up to the standards set by the other rifles tested.
I hope it does well; I’m tired of seeing American made AKS being sub par.
I voted PSAK 47. Lets see American manufacturers do it right.
Voted and Donated. Keep up the good work
Ruger Mini 30! lol
Always is so close it didnt get a fair run last time car right over center receiver after that was downhill
I am really looking forward to seeing how well the PSA AK holds up! I really want mine myself. Between PSA and DDI for my next AK.
I love my DDI!!
I vote for Npap since I just ordered one yesterday.
I voted PSAK 47 I am interested in getting another ak and would like to see if it can endure the test,, Thanks Greatly to the local 47-74
PSA is a great company. I really want them to have the best U.S.-made AK.
Just do the NPAP already! its come a close second both times now
PSAK, ’cause both Arsenal and Npap had their chance already. Also PSAK is new to the scene, lets see what happens.
I also voted PSA. Let’s see if it has what it takes. And I know you did the ras47. But I say the c39v2 deserves a chance.
It’s time for some 5.45 action
Did people not see the npap fail miserably already? Npap and Aresnal had their chance, I say PSA!
I think the NPAP would be the most informative. Imo. That’s my vote.
I voted for the N-Pap. I like the rifle and would like to see AKOU put one of my favorite rifles to the test.
PSAK. I love my DDI rifle and want to see if Palm State’s offering will hold a candle to it.
pls do a WASR
PSA their comming for u
I bought a NPAP a few months ago, but have only fired about 100 rounds through it. No issues so far, but I’d like to know what I might be in for..
It should work. Failures i have seen with NPAP were related to poor metal treatment.
I vote PSA , I have a Gen ! assembled from their kit, the only concern is the cast trunnion. hope that PSA can do better than I. O,. At least I have an WASR 10 if the PSA fails. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the AK owning community
NPAP! Import market is dominant with these it would be good to see what issues if any may be coming. I have an Opap with about 250 through it, I dont have the time or cash flow to run it like AKOU does. Thanks Rob Ski and Paul-inator for doing this stuff. The AK market standards are elevating because of this. IO get your shit together!
Lets go arsenal!!! Lets put the best to the test!
Let’s see a Draco test!
PSA, we are only one or two more bans away from no more imports. I want to see if the “American” AK’s can compete. I was bummed about I.O junk. Atlantic Fire Arms talked them up saying the wasr was surplus “old parts” and I.O would be better (shame, shame) I’d also like to see century do a V2 with scope mount go through the 5k Gauntlet.
My PSA AR has yet to fail and lost track of rounds down the pipe. Go Palmetto State!
Voted PSA. BTW Rob, you need some more horny whore stickers. Real slutty ones too. piss my wife off real good. lol
Voted and donated, let’s see what that PSA can do!
PSA, would like to see Serb rifle get anuthr chance tho.
Out of the eligible Aks for testing this time I’d like the PSA. It’s good to know at that price point and USA made ak will be a contender or a flop like RAS47. But in the future I wouldn’t mine seeing Petronov arms AK which are selling for close to $1000. Noone seems to heard of them but at that price point it’s on with Arsenal. I also wouldnt mind seeing either the Draco or M92 pap pistol with “arm brace” due to people using them as a “truck gun”
I voted for the NPAP. I bought one last year ( before Rob Ski’s test) and so far it’s been a good rifle. I really hope that the bad heat treatment on the receiver was an isolated incident. Rob Ski keep up the hard work testing these rifles. You’re doing things us ordinary people can’t afford to do.
I’d like to see the Zaztava npap Rob!!!! Keep that good work u guys are doing!!
PSA Gen2. We need to see if the American AK maunfacturers are taking the results of the piss-poor IO and RAS to heart and learning from their failures. Manufacturers should be trembling in fear when AKOU decides to test their product.
Hey Rob, love the testing of different rifles. Voted for PSAK47 but will be just as satisfied to see NPAP get second chance. Also donated to the cause.
Thank you! It looks like Palmetto is the winner!
