Can we pre-order
Josiah

At this time we do not have any plans for a pre-order.

I just bought two of the CA complaint versions that Atlantic sells. While they are the nitrided barrels, I Love them. I will also buy these if Atlantic gets tthem so they can add that shark fin grip to them for us ca boys being enemy lines. Can’t F’king wait! Buying for myself and then my 4 kids is expensive, but worth it because I don’t know if these guns will be available when my kids are old enough.
Drew

Any plans to make one chambered in 5.45?
Josiah
8 months ago at 6:05 PM
We will see the AK74 come to fruition in Q2, just beyond the 103's.
Ak fan
8 months ago at 6:37 PM
Impressive to see PSA stepping up their game considerably. I'll definitely be getting a Klone
Johnny Mcgreavey
8 months ago at 7:03 PM
What about the PSAK-74 from last shot show any updates yet?
Josiah
8 months ago at 8:58 PM
The AK74 will be coming out just after the AK 103 Klones, in Q2!
A Vick
8 months ago at 4:02 AM
Will they be “Klone” versions or standard?
8 months ago at 8:08 PM
will these also come with tri angle stocks?
Josiah
8 months ago at 9:01 PM
We will mostly likely offer it in the long-term future, but do not have any immediate plans, until all current models are in full production.
Tom G
8 months ago at 8:18 PM
Is there going to be an AK-E as well or will the Ak-103 be replacing that line?
Josiah
8 months ago at 8:59 PM
We sill have the AK-E coming out! It will be lauching the week of Shot!
The Expert
8 months ago at 3:20 AM
Wait. Palmetto makes their own CHF barrels now?
Josiah
8 months ago at 12:25 AM
That is correct! We do make our own now.
Omar
8 months ago at 6:34 AM
Please sell to cal! Ill send my own fin grip.
Josiah
8 months ago at 12:29 AM
In the distant future, we will probably come out with California Compliant models.
John Doa

Slap a triangle folder on it and I’m in.
Bradley
8 months ago at 11:26 PM
When can I buy the GF4?
Josiah
8 months ago at 12:35 AM
The GF4 is slated to be released in 60-90 days.
Chad jones
8 months ago at 12:20 AM
Any date set for when they will be in stock
Josiah
8 months ago at 12:36 AM
We are looking at about 90 days for release!
Levi Hudson
8 months ago at 3:58 PM
Will the folding stock mount/mechanism be compatible with most pre-existing stocks, like the typical poly-folder it aims to clone and the triangle stock, or is it a proprietary system?
Josiah
8 months ago at 10:21 PM
The side-folder on the AK103 will be the same side-folder used on our current PSA AK models with side-folding stocks. Our PSA classic poly and metal triangle side-folders are interchangeable.
Rick McFeeters
8 months ago at 1:12 AM
What kind of a bolt with the 103 Klone have? An AKM bolt or the thin stem Ak103 style bolt? Thanks!
Josiah
8 months ago at 10:23 PM
Our AK103 Klone will have the same bolt that is in our GF3, which is an AKM bolt.
Jordan
8 months ago at 3:21 AM
Does anyone know if this is on a 4.5 or a 5.5mm trunnion for the folder?
Josiah
8 months ago at 5:44 PM
It is 4.5 for the folders.
Eric
8 months ago at 6:53 PM
Do you have any plans to release these with a wood furniture option? Alternatively, will your standard AK furniture fit?
Bradley Collins
8 months ago at 1:49 AM
Omg this is so cool. I just emailed them to see when I can get my hands on one. I will definitely be getting the premium version. And, now that I have been doing some research I think ill be getting one of their AR's soon as well. Didn't realize they make almost everything in house and have a good reputation. Will be waiting anxiously for the new AK's!
Bil Stevens

Any chance for Zhukov folder?
Baidelrat
8 months ago at 6:55 PM
Excuse my potentially incredible ignorance, but short of the muzzle break, what's the difference between this 103 and this? https://palmettostatearmory.com/psak-47-gf3-forged-classic-side-folder-polymer-rifle-black-no-cleaning-rod-5165450217.html
Josiah
8 months ago at 3:59 PM
We are looking at approximately 90-120 days for the 103's!
Josiah
8 months ago at 6:35 PM
We will have different configurations over time, but will start out with our standard polymer stock and standard polymer side-folder to start out.

Dennis Kalnoky

Gonna make room in the safe for one of these.. too cool to pass up
8 months ago at 4:02 PM
Will any of these accept wood furniture?
Josiah
8 months ago at 4:13 PM
Our AK variants will accept most other types of furniture, although typical fitment may be needed.
AH
8 months ago at 10:33 PM
Are the dimensions of the muzzle brake exactly the same as an arsenal?
Josiah
8 months ago at 4:24 PM
The threads for our 103 will be M24 x 1.5RH.
Johnathan Buck
8 months ago at 7:56 PM
Threaded barrel? Bayonet lug? Also, any idea if this will go down in price after it's been out for awhile? Is it going to be a permanent run or a one-time deal for this particular series?
Josiah
8 months ago at 4:22 PM
The 103 will have a bayonet lug, and will have M24x1.5RH threads. This will be a permanent member of our line-up.
Johnathan Buck
8 months ago at 5:24 PM
Thanks. Any storage compartment in the stock? Would be an utterly amazing deal, if so. Perfect camping rifle, when used with the folding stock.
Lenard
8 months ago at 4:34 PM
So why don't you offer the hammer forged Nickel Boron Carrier, hammer forged Nickel Boron bolt and the ALG AKT trigger in the AK-103 clone? IMO it would have made a better premium package than the AK-E
Josiah
8 months ago at 11:42 PM
That configuration would not go over as well as it is further away from what a \"klone\" should be.
Delta3two
8 months ago at 8:53 PM
I love the Kalashnikov 5.45x39 cartridge. Sure would be nice if PSA would clone AK-12 magazines.
Jesse
8 months ago at 2:13 PM
Will you ever make an an 104 and 105?
Josiah
8 months ago at 3:43 PM
In the distant future yes, but nothing immediate or in 2020.
Kevin
7 months ago at 6:24 AM
I second the request for a 105 in the future, would pick that up in a heartbeat
Jeff
8 months ago at 6:55 AM
Can someone please give me a time table for these to drop? Was thinking Wasr but I rather have PSA
Josiah
8 months ago at 4:47 PM
The AK103's are about 90-120 days out.
John
7 months ago at 3:32 AM
Is there any hope to sooner? This is an election year I really wanna get one ASAP
psakplz
7 months ago at 6:48 PM
Will you be offering these with plum furniture?
Josiah
7 months ago at 1:38 AM
We will be initially releasing them in black, but other colors may come with time.
Johnathan Buck
7 months ago at 5:06 PM
Storage compartment in the stock?
Aaron Deese
7 months ago at 7:12 AM
Have been monitoring your AKs for a while and can safely say I am impressed! My personal preference would by the 103 in a MOEKov configuration in OD Green. Are there plans for such a setup or are you going to be strictly adhering to the 'Klone' monikor? Any possibility of an M4 stock? (Can't help it, I am short and I ask because I need a shorter length of pull!)
Johnny
7 months ago at 10:57 PM
I cant wait to see these hit the market and for Rob Ski, MrGnG and the rest to churn out content. I haven't bought a blaster in awhile but I'd consider a 103!
Robert Gollberg
7 months ago at 10:39 PM
I would sure like to see an AK 74 in5.45x39 with an UNDERFOLDER.
Josiah
7 months ago at 5:56 PM
In time I am sure we will have an underfolder model!
TW
7 months ago at 7:55 PM
Is there an update on the release date?
Josiah
7 months ago at 8:15 PM
We are still on track! They will be released in about 60-90 days.
Navdeep Bains
6 months ago at 12:16 AM
Will they have ALG triggers as well?
Josiah
6 months ago at 3:32 PM
We are trying to stick very close to the original 103, so they will not have ALG triggers.
TW
6 months ago at 9:18 PM
With all that is going on, is the AK 103 going to be delayed?
Josiah
6 months ago at 9:25 PM
The AK103 project is still underway in full. No information has been given to me that current events have delayed it.
Connor Burns
6 months ago at 2:50 AM
What makes the fn barrel better than yours?
Chad Freytag
6 months ago at 6:06 PM
Did the target date get pushed back do to covid19
Josiah
6 months ago at 6:19 PM
I have not been informed that the AK103 project has been pushed back.
Ty Parrish
6 months ago at 3:21 AM
What's the ETA on the AKK?
Josiah
6 months ago at 8:52 PM
The Krink will most likely see a Q4 release.
Charles Mobley
6 months ago at 1:13 AM
Arsenal too with their overpriced parts kit guns.
Ducky
5 months ago at 7:37 AM
Any klone update???
Josiah
5 months ago at 4:01 PM
We are still aiming for a Q2 release.
Matt Travis
5 months ago at 2:40 PM
Any new update on the status of these? I’m trying to hold outb for this instead of AK-E.
Jason Wilson
5 months ago at 2:25 AM
Get both! I love my AKE
Josiah
5 months ago at 3:09 PM
As of right now it has not been pushed back and we are still looking at Q2.
Trey Hunter
5 months ago at 6:42 PM
When can you take my money
Josiah
5 months ago at 3:10 PM
As of right now it has not been pushed back and we are still looking at Q2.
Lucky Mataele

Available to ship to California Patriots?
Josiah
5 months ago at 2:44 PM
Not during the initial launch, but we will in the long-term future.
Braden
5 months ago at 7:21 PM
Will there be any announcements or way to be notified prior to the drop or will it just be uploaded to the website unannounced?
Josiah
5 months ago at 9:05 PM
We most likely will upload it to the website and announce it on social media simultaneously.
James
5 months ago at 10:34 AM
Is PSA developing a \"Klone\" or knockoff AK 103 magazine? Something similar or identical to the ones Izhmash or Kalashnikov Concern makes? Thanks again Josiah on the updates I'm looking forward to the 103,74 and all other variants!
Josiah
5 months ago at 8:13 PM
https://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=406596 Yes we do! Here is a link to one of our announcements about them.
Mark Thomas
5 months ago at 5:56 AM
Will your picatinny stock adapter fit the fixed stock model 103?
Josiah
5 months ago at 4:39 PM
Yes, the picatinny stock adapter will work on the fixed stock AK103.
Franklin M Ebersole
5 months ago at 6:32 PM
I'm planning on running my sandman on this once get my hands on this instead of the ak-e, as such I'm going to need to get a thread adapter to fit my flash hider, is there any concern about the barrel, adapter, flash hider and whisper pickle not being concentric?
Josiah
5 months ago at 4:26 PM
We pride ourselves in making and supplying great barrels. With ANY manufacturer, you ALWAYS want to check concentricity before shooting it with a suppressor.
MJ
5 months ago at 12:36 AM
Is the release still looking like Quarter 2?
Josiah
5 months ago at 3:37 PM
We are still looking at Q2. The lead AK engineer said that it is looking like towards the end of Q2.
MJ
5 months ago at 8:38 PM
Is that for all four models? Is it also looking like the same time frame for the knockoff AK 103 magazines that you announced as well? Thank again or the updates!
Josiah
5 months ago at 9:10 PM
As far as all 4 models, we will know more as we get closer to release. The mags are still in the works and are slated for a Q3 release.
Jack
4 months ago at 7:05 PM
Do the premium models still come with forged bolts and carrier?
Josiah
4 months ago at 4:56 PM
All models of our AK variants come with a forged bolt and carrier.
Jack
4 months ago at 7:49 PM
Any updates on the release date or pre orders?
Josiah
4 months ago at 5:01 PM
For more info on AK release dates and other good info, please watch up to the 15 minute mark of this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYafKaH4QLU&t=124s We do not have any pre-orders planned at this moment.
Elliott L Penner

Awesome. I would love to see an ak 101 klone, and better yet an ak102 klone maybe a 102 pistol.
Nash Jaramillo
4 months ago at 11:42 PM
This might be a dumb question but will the 103 Klone be comparable with the same type of furniture you'd find on your AK-E? ie MOEkov setup or ALG trigger?
Josiah
4 months ago at 6:49 PM
They both take standard AK furniture. Due to variations in furniture, some fitment may be required.
Jake
4 months ago at 3:45 PM
Any update on these 103s?
Josiah
4 months ago at 4:19 PM
This is the latest info that I have at the moment. Please listen up to about the 15 minute mark for info regarding all of our latest AK releases. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYafKaH4QLU&t=228s
Nathan

When will they become available for sale? Is the virus delaying their release?
Josiah
4 months ago at 2:11 PM
Here is a good resource to watch regarding the 103 and all of our AK projects. If you listen up to the 15 minute mark, our lead AK engineer Colton gives a lot of info regarding our current AK projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYafKaH4QLU&t=870s
MJ
3 months ago at 9:53 PM
Is it looking like the 103 will be bumped to Q3?
Josiah
3 months ago at 2:34 PM
Yes, it looks like the 103's will be Q3.
MJ
3 months ago at 2:34 PM
Thanks for the update. Does it look like the beginning, middle, or end of Q3? I also assume it depends a lot on the AK74?
Josiah
3 months ago at 9:31 AM
The AK74 should be early Q3. The 103 will follow soon behind it, but I do not have a date.
James
3 months ago at 1:53 AM
Will there be California complaint version for AK103 and AK74? Thanks
Josiah
3 months ago at 9:17 AM
No date has been set yet for CA compliant versions. Once we have both products fully underway and are able to, we will release CA compliant versions as we have done with the GF3.
Tommy
3 months ago at 2:01 PM
Any guesstimate on what month of Q3 the AK103 is set for release? I have the money sitting in an envelope ready to go.
Jack
2 months ago at 6:49 PM
Any dates?

No exact date yet!

Are the 2 models currently listed as "out of stock" the only 2 that will be available for now?
Josiah
2 months ago at 4:26 PM
Those are the only two right now. More configurations to come in the near future!

Francisco

Unfortunately I missed the first batch of the Ak103. As they are currently out of stock they do not show the prices. What are they? Also when do you think they might come back in stock? Lastly, just out of curiosity, I was wondering how many were made for the first batch. It would just be neat to know when I get one, more or less what number it could be. Thanks, and God bless.
Josiah
2 months ago at 9:30 AM
We released a couple batches last week. Late this week, keep an eye out as I believe more are coming then!
Dennis

Put me down for a side-folder w/ FN bbl. This reminds me of when I ordered my AKV. Refreshed the PSA website all day for weeks until I finally got one.
