Add To:

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. This lower is finished with a Magpul Grip, SBA3 Adjustable Brace, and Mil-Spec Buffer Tube. Through extensive testing, we have determined that we can only guarantee the reliability of the KS-47 G2 platform with the PA-10 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 Upper is finished with a PSA 9" 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.

When will the stripped lowers be available?
Daniel W on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They will need to sell it as a stripped upper/lower set since the upper is customized to work with the KS-47 lower. I hope they release these sets soon.
So does the KS47 Gen 2 with the SBA3 pistol brace still have a PA-10 buffer spring and a H1 buffer?
7.62x39 on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, PA-10 carbine buffer spring and heavy H1 buffer. It states this above in the description of the components.

Clayton B on Dec 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, just set screws. I removed and added locktite.
PSA AR-47 compatible?
Casey D on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, as stated in the description. AR-47 meaning an AR-15 lower using 7.62x39 AR magazines in this case. The Gen1 upper was dual compatible due to not having the over insertion tabs, but this creates some operational weakness that the tabs are meant to prevent. Since most anyone buying a KS47 is doing it because they want to use AK mags, adding the tabs on the Gen2 is the right choice in my opinion.
will uppers be available for those who bought ks47 lowers during the first run?
shadowrundas on Dec 5, 2018

Manuel G on Jan 29, 2019

Love it but....
Love fit and finish not a single feed issue or loose gas block...but 130 rounds of wolf and it became a single shot.I had to mortar 2 fired rounds out of battery before I gave up for the day.Got home and cleaned chamber good over all it was not that dirty.I hope this is break in.If it repeats I may send it back for inspection.Not to happy the day I received it I got an email showing I could have got it cheaper by purchasing separate upper from lower.
February 15, 2019
Love it.
First thing I did when I received the pistol was to check the gas block screws. They were a half turn loose IMO. Added some blue loctite fired 100rds and no problems with magpul, surplus steel and circle 10(tight fit) mags. Added an extended latch charging handle since there is no bolt hold open. Getting 2.75 - 3" @100 with Wolf mil-spec ammo (red laquer).

Same problem with the gas block being loose
Much like the 2 Star review above me, my gas block came loose on about round 100. I remember reading the review, popped off the handguard, and both set screws were loose with the block out of place. It was a really easy fix, sort of, but the screws are too long to really stake properly. Yeah, I can file them, sand them, whatever, but getting the right length set screws isn't a big deal.

Thanks to the original poster for letting us know what to look for in case of problems.

OTHER THAN THAT, I love the pistol. It's great fun to shoot. I don't regret the purchase.

P-State, come on guys, you have a publicly listed problem and it's recurring? Love your stuff and love your prices, but this seems like an easy fix.

Solid fun gun
I absolutely love this gun, the stock sits firmly in my shoulder and as I fire it locks in and feels great. Put some accessories on 45 degree site mounts (short arms) and magpul iron sights, I have taken it for a couple of runs and have got might sights the way I want them and it fires flawlessly with accuracy I just love. Love this gun, have waited for it to cycle back into stock, so glad I waited.

Gas block came loose during 3rd mag, bent charging handle.
Gas block came loose after 3 mags and turned the gun into a single shot. Some cases got stuck in the chamber while troubleshooting this issue and I bent the charging handle clearing stuck cases. First time I have bent an AR charging handle despite being an abusive user.

If you buy one of these, tear it down completely and re-torque or loctite everything with a thread on it.

Palmetto, if you are not going to pin the gas block you should dimple the barrel for the setscrews and loctite the set screws. Since the gas block came free and slid forward off the gas port within 3 mags I think the person assembling the gun didn't even tighten the screws. When aligning and re-installing gas block I did not see usual screw marks on the bottom of the barrel.

After fixing the above issues on the firing line I was able to put 400rnds through the gun in a couple hours.

I will be ripping this gun down in the near future and performing the flowing work before trusting this gun:
- Dimple the set screw locations on the barrel.
- Loctite the gas block set screws.
- Re-torque barrel nut.
- Check chamber headspace.
- Replace charging handle.
- Install short barrel flash hider.

A good first outing
Took the PSA Gen 2 Pistol-length ks47 out today for a test. I tried some bakelite mags and some eastern european steel mags. Not a single feeding issue. Put ~360 rounds of wolf through it. Had one round that did not fire but checked and it was not a lite strike. I then loaded round again and it fired. The gun is a lot of fun. It seems very well built. It will get hot so make sure to wear some gloves if you are going to put a lot of rounds through it.

Runs great
Write your review here. It must be at least 20 characters lonOne week from order to receipt.

Cleaned and lubed. Affixed MBUS and Eotech sights, and a sling via detachable swivels and weapon fixture/sockets. I also installed a PSA ambi- safety which was a two minute drop-in process.

During my initial outing I ran 400 plus rounds of assort steel ammo - Wolf, Tula, Red Army, brass surplus - a mix of hollow points and FMJs.

Not a single failure of any kind.
The magazine lockup on surplus and new alike was positive and rock solid. I used Magpul composites, Russian, Croatian, Korean and Bulgarian and Hungarian steel 30's. It also ran Russian 20 round magazines w/o hesitation. I had two Romanian 40 round magazines and they ran without hesitation.
The only issue was with a 75 Round Drum; which was wobbly and did not fit the mag. well.

This "pistol" is a riot to shoot - and runs like a sewing machine. It is accurate and seems to be well-mannered - its loud but not obnoxious, negligible recoil as fired from the shoulder with supplied stock. All my assorted magazines fit well and fed 100% (with the Century Arms drum being the exception). Great purchase - my new truck gun.g. Consider whether you would recommend this product and what you like or dislike about it.
