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 15" 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.

The accuracy hype is real.
Highly recommend if you're looking at a 7.62x39 cartridge in an AR platform. I mounted a leupold 3-9x40 on a warne 1piece mount, took it to the range, and just wow. Sighted it in within 20rds at 35yds, and even then the groups were ontop of each other. Pushed it out to 100yd, easily, I can get under 2 inch groups using Tulammo. Takes just about all AK magazines so no problem. My only complaint is that the charging handle can get really stiff after firing it for a few. 0 misfeeds, 0 failures to eject, 0 failure to feed, flawless. I've already purchased a geiselle charging handle to remediate that. Just overall this has been my best purchase in a long while.

Pretty awesome gun already ran 500 rounds of golden tiger and mil-spec sealed primer wolf. At 100y get about 2.5-3.5 moa not bad also no problems with mags feeding or extraction ran 100. Just wish it had last shot hold open.
Top circles are at 50y  bottom from that 100y

Everything that the AK will never be.
I recently purchased this rifle as a separate upper and lower on a daily deal. I don’t have a reason to use my Zastava AK anymore. The KS47 out performs my AK in every way. Awesome rifle from PSA.

You need some of this halfbreed action.
It’s more AR than AK, but a quick paint job can add some Russian flare.

Excellent craftsmanship!!!!
The upper and lower are very tight with no movement at all. Ran 200 rounds of wolf and tul ammo through it without any malfunctions. I kept thinking I had a fail to fire but there is no bolt open on last round will have to get used to it. If you are going to buy anti- rotation pins, do not buy the KNS style as the little bar between the two pins will not fit correctly. The rifle is very accurate and has little recoil. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Best birthday ever 🎂
I got this as a birthday present and it is amazing. I have had no problems with the gun. It is very accurate even for the 7.62x39 round. I am left handed and absolutely love the magazine release. The only thing I would recommend when buying this is getting a new charging handle since it is a heavy buffer spring and lots and lots of ammo l. You'll burn through it having so much fun. Also if you would like to shoot this but can't shoot most 7.62x39 brands of ammo at your local range. I recommend the ppu brand it's cheap, reloadable, and accurate.

Great Rifle worth every dollar!!!
This is the 1st "Hybrid" rifle i have owned, being an AR platform and shooting 7.62X39 while taking standard AK47 mags. I was at 1st skeptical about this firearm especially after some of the video i saw mainly with the 1st gen KS47. However after pushing aside these reservation and buying this firearm i must say that i am beyond pleased with it. Everything about it screams quality and i can not/ have not found anything cheap or spotty about its quality. I took it straight out the box and put 60 rounds out of it with no issues to report with the exception of the use of a X-Tech Tactical Mag47 magazine. These mags are not on the list of functioning mag with this platform, however these are higher end mags for the AK platform. As such i was interested in seeing how they would preform in this platform. While it did feed the rounds perfectly the design of this particular mag is just a little to big in almost all dimensions. especially the locking lug, which cause the mag to rock out due to the inability to properly lock in place with the KS47's mag release lever. the constant shock and vibration of the gun being fired was to much for this mag to stay in, however i do not fault the KS47 for this but rather the fatter design of the X-Tactical Mag47 magazine. when using a variety of Pmags, size capacities and generations, i had zero issues with the performance of this firearm. It is an excellent rifle worth every dollar. If i had to give it a ding it would be that at least in my experience, it not having any lube on the BCG or bolt, however this did not impact the performance of the rifle it shot flawlessly. in short i would say if you are on the fence about this rifle do yourself a favor and get it, especially while it is in stock, you will not be disappointed.

It's a shooter
Received my PSA KS 47 with 15" hand guard last week. It looked great and appeared to be very well built. I inspected it, cleaned it up and then mounted a vortex scope on it and took it out shooting.

When I got to about the 90th round through the gun it malfunctioned and did not fire. Upon closer inspection I noticed the trigger group pin had walked out of one side of the receiver allowing the trigger group to cant to one side not allowing the hammer to fall when the trigger was pulled. I lined everything back up and used a spent shell casing and pushed the pin back into the trigger group and receiver. (I was out in the woods and didn't have any tools with me)

I'm not sure if the trigger group pin is supposed to be staked but it is not on my gun. I fired another 75 rounds through it after the field expedient repair without any more problems.

I shot Wolf Poly performance FMJ, Golden Tiger FMJ and some Berdan Hollow points for a total of 165 rounds fired without any issues cycling or firing that ammunition. I shot the gun at 110 yards at my steel targets and it was an absolute pleasure to shoot.

I've cleaned it up after shooting and everything looks good inside. Not sure what I'm going to do about the trigger pin for now other then keep and eye on it to make sure it doesn't walk out again and keep putting rounds through it. I shoot a lot so only time will tell. Over all I'm pleased with my first purchase from PSA.
First 165 rounds down range. It's a shooter!

Love it
This one has the Pic rail over the top of the entire handguard, unlike the other 16" barrel version, but didn't realize it until I received it. It's really just cosmetic, other than a minuscule weight reduction, so I can't complain.

I attached a Burris 3x and zeroed in about 3 or 4 shots, and then it was off to the races. 250 rounds in, with no malfunctions to speak of. I was just going for volume more than accuracy, but it was doing solid groups at 50 yards.

The only thing that could be viewed as a negative is that there is no bold hold open feature with the bone stock gun, so if your range wants to see an open bolt, you'll need to put an empty case perpendicular to the ejection port to demonstrate that. That's what my range told me to do, in any case. I know they have AK mags that will create a last round bold hold open effect, but don't know if they'll work with this KS-47, if you really wanted to look into that.
