The Palmetto State Armory AK-V brought its A Game for the Big 3 East Media event in Daytona, FL this week.
LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MEDIA INSIDERS RAN MORE THAN 3,000 ROUNDS THROUGH THE AK-V WITH ZERO MALFUNCTIONS.
A handful of media insiders, industry experts, and law enforcement officers joined in on the fun as we pumped more than 3,000 flawless rounds through an AK-V taken straight off the production line down to Daytona. The new production has implemented several AK-V upgrades to address initial issues in the AK-V. We are highly confident that the latest run of AK-V pistols will exceed your expectations. Neither the Palmetto State Armory staff nor anyone attending the Big 3 East Media Event experienced a failure to feed, extraction issues, or light strikes. What we all did experience was the ease of use in a 9MM blowback operating system combined with the classic functionality of the AK-47 rifle design.
WHAT IS THE AK-V?
The Palmetto State Armory AK-V is a blowback-operated 9MM AK pistol based on the Vityaz designed sub-gun. The idea is to give the user a compact 9MM firearm that combines form and function into a CQB powerhouse that's also a ton of fun at the range. It's also a head-turner that's certain to be the envy of the range when you show up with it.
The PSA AK-V utilizes our U9 magazine which holds 35 rounds of 9MM ammunition, has steel feed lips, and runs less than $20 on our website. All AK-Vs will ship with the U9 magazine.
The AK-V will work with most Scorpion magazines and our U9 mag will run in the CZ Scorpion as well.
An SB Tactical SBA3 Brace is standard.
Check out the AK-V as shown here with an SBA3 brace, and a 35 round magazine.
BIG 3 EAST IS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR PRODUCT TESTING
Big 3 East is a fantastic training ground (or playground, if you will) with a variety of shooting ranges and targets that provided the perfect backdrop for showing off the latest production model of the AK-V.
The AK-V's blowback operation, AK styling, and the U9 magazine's 35 round capacity quickly became the big-ticket draw at Big 3 East.
NO RED DOT NEEDED
While the initial impulse was to mount a red dot optic and let the brass fly, we wanted to make highlight and prove the reliability and accuracy of the AK-V. It won't roll off the line with a SIG Sauer Romeo5 attached. So why add one here?
What could be so wrong with showing it off exactly how it comes off the production line in our Columbia, SC facility?
Turns out, nothing.
With minimal input from the PSA staff and a couple of sight acquisition dry-runs, shooters were casually ringing steel from 100 yards using the AK-V's iron sights. No red dot needed.
Red dot sight suggested? Sure.
Red dot needed? No way.
MORE THAN 3,000 ROUNDS. MORE TO GO.
The AK-V that went to Daytona is now set to follow us around for a bit. We want to stretch its legs and see how far we can make it run. Watch this blog for updates on when and where you can get up close and personal with the Palmetto State Armory AK-V.
