The Palmetto State Armory KS-47 G2 is based on the AR-15 and combines the modular construction, accuracy, and precision of the AR platform with the stopping power and the magazine options of the AK.  The KS-47 G2 lets the AK shooter capitalize on their inventory of AK magazines and AK ammo with an AR-style platform. Unlike the AK, where the barrel is permanently pressed into the receiver, the KS-47 G2 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.

Lower: The 7075-T6 forged lower receiver is hard coat anodized, and accepts standard AR-15 fire control groups. The extended magazine release is outside of the trigger guard for safety, which allows for an AK-style release movement but also features oversize side paddles for fingertip release by the trigger finger. The KS-47 G2 receiver also accepts standard AR buffer tubes. The KS-47 G2 lower has steel reinforcements to accept AK style surplus magazines including drum-style.  This Gen2 design features a PA-10 carbine buffer spring and heavy H1 buffer to ensure reliable operation with a wide variety of aftermarket and surplus magazines. Through extensive testing, we have determined that we can only guarantee the reliability of the KS47 G2 platform with the PA10 carbine buffer spring and heavy H1 buffer.  The KS-47 G2 Lower will accept most aftermarket fire control groups (Geissele, etc.). However, due to the magazine catch geometry, one-piece drop in triggers such as CMC style triggers will not function in KS-47 G2.

Upper: The KS-47 G2 upper receiver is precision machined out of forged 7075 T6 aluminum, and then hard coat anodized for durability. While retaining the look of a standard M4 upper, the KS-47 G2 upper is designed to work with the new Gen2 KS-47 lower.  The upper features integrated over-insertion tabs to prevent the bolt from dragging on the magazine. This CMV 4150 barrel is chambered in 7.62x39 with a 1 in 10 twist and has a single, large feed ramp to accommodate the larger case diameter of the 7.62x39 round. The barrel is nitride treated for accuracy and durability and is finished off with a 5/8-24 thread A2-style compensator. The forward assist, dust cover, charging handle, and safety are all standard AR-15.  This KS-47 G2 upper is finished off with a PSA 13.5" Lightweight M-Lok Free Float Rail. The KS-47 G2 upper will not work with a standard AR-15 lower.

BCG: The KS-47 Bolt carrier group is designed to work with AK-47 magazines, and features an extended firing pin. The carrier is made of nitride treated 8620 steel, and the gas key is attached with grade 8 bolts and properly staked. The bolt has been redesigned to function properly with most AK-47 magazines. The bolt is nitride treated 9130 steel. 

Magazine: The KS-47 G2 comes with one Magpul 30 round AK-47 magazine (where allowed by law).  The new Gen2 KS-47 has been tested and is guaranteed to work with the following AK-47 magazines:

  • Magpul AK-47 Pmag
  • Romanian Stick Magazine
  • Romanian Drum Magazine
  • Chinese Drum Magazine
  • Chinese Stick Magazine
  • Korean Drum Magazine
  • Korean Stick Magazine
  • Yugoslavian Stick Magazine
  • Bulgarian Stick Magazine
  • Circle10 Stick Magazine
  • Hungarian Stick Magazine
  • Russian Stick Magazine

** Due to the unique geometry required for the KS-47 G2 BCG to function, ALL other magazines will not be guaranteed to work.  If you are using a magazine not listed above, no warranty claims will be accepted for magazine functioning issues.

KS-47 Gen1 & Gen2 Compatibility:

The KS-47 G2 uppers and lowers will function with the KS-47 G1 uppers and lowers. However, if any KS-47 G1 parts are used, all of the improvements of the KS-47 G2 may not be optimized.  We recommend using Magpul AK-47 Magazines on any KS-47 that is a combination of Gen 1 and Gen 2 parts.

What's the difference between this model and the sold out 5 1 6 5 4 5 0 1 6 3?
Scott M on Feb 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Literally just talked to a customer service rep and asked this exact question. If you look closely in a side by side pic the one ending in 0695 it has a full length 1913 rail the one ending in 0163 does not, this is the main difference. Also the one ending in 0695 has a different more aggressive MOE + pistol grip while 0163 has a standard MOE (non+) pistol grip. hope this helps
What is the major bore diameter? Is this designed for foriegn ammo (.311) or domestic brass ammo (.308)?
Matthew G on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Read the review on Pew Pew Tactical, they love it, I love it
can you attach rails on the bottom of the key mod hand guard, so as to add a grip etc?
Jacob B on Feb 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can, you can buy individual key-mod rail sections. There should also be grips with key mod on it already
Can you change the barrel out with different brands?
Ace7.62 on Feb 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It appears the barrel attaches to the upper receiver with a barrel nut and the handguard attaches to the barrel nut so there should be no issue with changing the barrel on this upper.

Is there a 10rd mag option for this rifle?
Eric D on Apr 17, 2019

Does this have last round hold open?
Ronny L on May 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't, AK mags do not offer this. if you use AK mags with bolt hold open runners then it will stay open. You can install them into most AK mags.

Very impressed by the quality, even moreso with the price!
This rifle is very nice, very well put together, and performs amazingly. I put my first ~350 rounds through this rifle yesterday, and here are my thoughts:

The rifle is deceivingly lightweight. The shipping box legitimately did not feel like it had a rifle inside of it when I received it. Even after installing a red dot, grip, etc., the rifle maintains a nice, low weight.

I experienced no malfunctions at all during the range visit, firing Tula FMJ via the supplied Magpul PMAG. I tried both rapid firing (to see if I could force an FTE or FTF), and single/precise shots at 50/100 yards. The accuracy is very impressive, and the felt recoil is not bad at all.

The stock trigger is excellent, so much so that I have no intention to replace it.

The magazine catch and release are very smooth and pleasant to use. I only wish there was more of an affirmative response when the magazine becomes seated - AK's typically have an audible "click" when a mag seats, as do AR's, but it is virtually silent on this rifle. While this isn't really a negative, it will have you questioning your mag seating the first few times.

*Some slight negatives*

This rifle does not appear to accept TAPCO AK PMAGs. I tried three different mags and could not seat a single one. I didn't have time to fully inspect and see where the tolerance issue was, however, but this was a non-issue with the Magpul mags.

There is no bolt hold-open. Not a huge deal, but it would be nice to have.

While firing, the MLOK handguard drifted away from the receiver by about 1.5 inches. It appears as though this is common - maybe they aren't tightened down all the way in the factory. This was easily remedied by reseating everything and applying locktite.

The charging handle is somewhat difficult to pull back - most likely because of the beefy buffer spring for the 7.62 round. I will definitely need a more heavy duty, wider charging handle for this to be comfortable going forward.

Other than that, I don't think I have ever been this excited to own another rifle! Go get one and see what I mean!!!

wow
Buy it before PSA figures out they can sell it for more.
This thing shoots great. Red dot at 50 yards has a 4" group with steel ammo. No jams with magpul mags. S Korean mags did ok.

You will be impressed.
Topped with a 3-9X40 Nikon P-223, it will deliver steel case 122gr FMJ TulAmmo @ 2487 fps on an 8x8 steel plate @ 400 yards ALL DAY LONG. Engineering like this deserves a gold star. This rifle shoots better than the PTR-32 without the extra 2 pounds.
Every other firearm manufacturer should be green with envy. Consumers on the fence should not hesitate. This is the pinnacle of my collection.

Home Run Palmetto
I ordered my upper and lower separate for this rifle ordering the lower first. Yesterday I got the upper and today I put on some backup iron sights and zeroed those in. In just a few shots I was nailing my bulls eye. This gun was a real pleasure to shoot. I tried a pmag and also a steel com block mag with no issues. I plan to add an optic and make a deer hunting rig out of this thing for this fall.
A couple of things I want to throw out there that would be nice though are: machine a pop in qd sling point into the muzzle end of the hand guard, Maybe a thin rubber over mold on the lower portion of the hand guard for comfort and also a bolt catch like is standard on most AR platform rifles. Those are just some thoughts. As of right now I couldn't be more pleased however and should Palmetto come out with a gen3 adding the things I mention i'd gladly buy it also as long as they kept a good price point.

I plan to buy another complete BCG just to have in case mine should ever fail for some reason so i'll have no down time and can just pop it and go. If anyone is flirting with the idea of buying one i'd say go for it and don't hesitate! Very happy though Palmetto, thanks and keep up the good work!

Excellence in Affordable Innovation.
I've wanted a hybrid since the ol' MGI "Hydra" but never could put it at the top of my list. This rifle is phenomenal considering the price difference in comparison to CMMG's Mutants. Lightweight and highly maneuverable compared to Aks in general. Price to play is significantly reduced as well when adding the cost of optic mounts on AKs. RSVP Refulate with attachment is just shy of $200, so the AR rail system is an obvious plus. After a half case of Golden Tiger (500 rds) and several 40 round boxes of WalmartTulammo I can say without hesitation that this is an innovative and extremely fun range gun. Threaded Heavy barrel is a definite advantage in accuracy when compared to Aks pinned and almost always "pencil" barrels. You will notice more fouling but not detrimental. It's the nature of the operating system. The heavy buffer does well absorbing some recoil as well

Be mindful with Steel Magazines, even though we all know steel on aluminum is not preferable, the mag catch and front tab is steel. I say be careful because as my pictures will demonstrate, the "over-insertion tabs" are aluminum and seem to be taking damage from the steel mags. I wonder how PSA will stand behind this war seeing they have listed many steel mags as compatible.

I am happy with my purchase though and for those who like "shortys" like I do and are considering the pistol, keep in mind practical functionality with this caliber as well as muzzle blast and flash. This is what ultimately led me to decide on the rifle....

Great rifle, incredible value for money.
PSA is knocking it out of the park these days with rifles that are damn good and at great prices too. I can't wait for the new ak-47 enhanced coming out soon and the ak-74. Two more I'll be buying from soon.

A Great rifle.
I have had ak style rifles for about 20 years, this the first ar style that I have owned, but it will out shoot any ak that I have shot before. With a trs 25, I can ring a 10 inch steel plate(not free handed) at 200 yards. I have put about 300 rounds through it with any problems. Wolf and Tulammo. Planning on buying the 10.5 version.

Just love it...
I did shot my first 100 rounds trough it and I'm impress. I did used chip Wolff bulk ammo with chip Polish magazines and the rifle spited it all with not hesitation. I do also owned a PA47 upper that I did finally made it work flawless, using a couple of magazines that I did found after several attempts with different brands, but the KS47 works a lot better, hands down. I did group 5 shots in a 4" targets at 100 YDS several times, as well as ringing a 5" steel target all morning long. I'm Super Happy.
