Russian Heritage — American Innovation
We are very excited to debut the new Kalashnikov USA products. Since the imposition of sanctions against Concern Kalashnikov in Russia on July 16, 2014, we are working to transform our company and staff from an importer and 922(r) compliant conversion specialist, to a full-fledged manufacturer. We are very proud of the results shown in the following pages and we hope you will appreciate our efforts.
We started with the proven AK-47 design, utilizing the Russian Heritage of the long stroke, gas piston, rotating bolt design. Starting with a firearm that is simple to operate, easy to maintain and built to last for years, this reliable and durable firearm has all the stopping power of a .30 caliber round. To this legendary firearm, we added the American Innovation. First, thru the use of CNC design and manufacturing, all of the parts that were formerly cast, are now CNC manufactured, meaning the tolerances of the parts can be tighter, resulting in an improved fit and finish. Less space and play between the moving parts results in smoother operation, a crisper trigger and more accurate shot placement. Depending on the material, all parts are now finished in phosphate or black oxide, for longer and better anti-corrosion resistance. The barrels and chambers are nitrocarburized case hardened for a long life with superior corrosion resistance. Nitrocarburization is a more environmentally friendly process than chrome lining a barrel.
The superiority of the autoloader. Shotguns based on the AK design have reached a level of such popularity in the USA because of the same Russian Heritage as the AK rifles, the same design, the same operation and the same reliability as the AK rifles. We are using the same American Innovation on the shotguns, including CNC production, and improved coatings. We are also applying our experience doing 922(r) shotgun conversions to improving the shotgun cycling.
For the AK purists, we offer models with the AK-47 type wood furniture and AK-74 type polymer furniture.
For users who appreciate the modularity afforded by the addition of Picatinny rails we offer the Modern AK models, including side folding stock models.
We are proud to present an affordable autoloader with pistol grip and AK type stock. Two tactical shotgun models, one with a folding steel stock and aluminum quad rail for home defense or Law Enforcement use, and a three gun competition shotgun.
