The Palmetto State Armory KS-47 is based on the AR-15, and combines the modular construction, accuracy and precision of the AR platform with the stopping power and magazine options of the AK-47. While the current AR-47 fires the 7.62x39 round, it uses modified AR-style magazines that are not nearly as plentiful as AK-style magazines, which are optimized for reliable feeding of the 7.62x39 round. The KS-47 lets the AK shooter capitalize on his inventory of magazines and ammo with an AR-style platform.
Unlike the AK-47, 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 KS-47 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 KS-47 hybrid upper is designed to work with either the KS-47 lower, or the standard AR-47 lower. The 18" 4150V chrome moly vanadium barrel is chambered in 7.62x39 with a 1 in 10" twist, has M4-style feedramps, midlength gas system, is nitride treated for accuracy and durability, and is finished off with a 5/8-24 thread A2-style compensator, low profile gas block and 15" PSA Lightweight Keymod free float rail. The forward assist, dust cover, charging handle, and safety selector are all standard AR-15 parts.
