The Palmetto State Armory KS47 is based on the AR15, and combines the modular construction, accuracy and precision of the AR platform with the stopping power and the magazine options of the AK. While the current AR47 fires the 7.62x39 AK round, it uses modified AR-style magazines that are not nearly as plentiful as AK-style magazines, that were optimized for reliable feeding of the 7.62x39 round. The KS47 lets the AK shooter capitalize on his inventory of magazines and ammo with an AR-style platform.
Unlike the AK, where the barrel is permanently pressed into the receiver, the KS47 features an AR-style modular configuration which consists of a barreled upper receiver, and a lower receiver that houses the fire control group and magazine. The modular configuration allows customers to have several different barrel configurations with one lower receiver, just by releasing two pins.
Upper: The KS47 hybrid upper receiver is precision machined out of billet 7075 T6 aluminum, and then hardcoat anodized for durability. While retaining the look of a standard M4 upper, the KS47 hybrid upper is designed to work with either the KS47 lower, or the standard AR47 lower. The 10.5" 4150V chrome moly vanadium barrel is chambered in 7.62x39 with a 1 in 10 twist, has M4-style feedramps, is nitride treated for accuracy and durability, and is finished off with a 5/8-24 thread A2-style compensator, classic carbine length hand-guards and F-marked front sight base. The forward, assist, dust cover, charging handle, and safety are all standard AR15, as is the classic hand-guards, front sight base, barrel nut and delta ring assembly.
Bolt Carrier Group: Carpenter 158 Phosphate coated 7.62x39 bolt, Full auto profile 8620 steel carrier, chrome-lined and phosphate coated. Phosphate coated chrome-lined gas key staked per mil-spec. AR47 extended length firing pin.
