That’s a good online deal but it’s +$200 locally. PSA seems to be desperate but the thing is, the AK is to outfit an entire army, like 1 army, which is 4-8-12,000 and up to 40-80,000 soldiers. I just don’t see PSA succeeding long term, having lowered their prices. They can sustain production but not soldiers for PSA operators, by heritage. There are holes in PSA & VSKA’s marketing sales story. I don’t believe it & not falling for it. I would trade 5 U.S made AKs & a Mossberg shotgun, for 1 Russian Kalashnikova or AK shotgun. For AK shotgun, 15 Mossbergs for an AK shoty. Good video.
One reason of interest for a quality manufactured US AK is because rifles currently made overseas are then mated with select US parts. Due to the resulting variance in metallurgy, parts can take a real beating and deform. As example, a rifle could have an overseas made BCG, and due to the different hardness of a US made fire control group, the rifle’s hammer may start to deform the BCG tail. Thus, if we can get a quality AK that has all of its parts 100% US manufactured, the rifle should see benefit from a homogeneous metallurgy (in-sync hardness of the parts). Let’s cheer on PSA for their drive to continuously improve and deliver a quality AK at an affordable price point.
I just received my psak 47 g3 and front sight had to be moved all the way to the right to zero. After about 5 rounds to zero the rifle did double taps on it’s own. The range official asked me to not shoot it any more as it could go full auto. I am trying to get palmetto but phone is always busy and did not answer email. Just thougt you would like to know.
