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.
What is the weight with empty magazine?
Neal M on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 5lbs 14oz - no mag, 6lbs 5oz with pmag.
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.
Anyone have experience shooting this with a suppressor, how does it work with sub and supersonic?
Chris B on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I dought it would function with subs unless you open the gas port to .125. Then you will want an adjustable gas block, or piston so it's not over gashed with supers.
Is the gas block pinned in place?
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.
Is the inside of the barrel nitride treated as well, or just the outside?
Whoacolt45 on Jan 23, 2019

Bob J on Mar 21, 2019

Michael I on Jan 30, 2019
Will the KS47 lower work with other brand name AR type AK uppers?
Manuel G on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, probably not. These uppers and lowers are "proprietary", meaning they differ just enough from each manufacturer so as to be incompatible with each other. The only other companies that make these style are CMMG and Rock River Arms.

Matthew S on Jan 21, 2019

Great Pistol
Purchased my KS47 pistol about 2 weeks ago. Got to the range last weekend. Very happy with the performance. Had no issues with Pmag and Chinese mags. 50 yard range 3/4 inch to 1 1/4 inch the norm with wolf and some old norinco FMJ and HP steel case. Eat everything with no failures. Home run from PSA!

Great pistol for the money
Bought pistol couple months ago shoots three round group of hornady black at 100 yds cover with quarter easy reground hammer that sits on sear and got to a three lb pull, put hard charger side charge and pulsar thermal, changed the flash hider and put a four piece hider. Took hog hunting and dropped four hogs with it worked great

Overall good weapon but the mags...
I took this weapon out and put it through my normal tests which include a variety of ammo and mags. All ammo functioned very well with no problems. This weapon has great accuracy for a shorter barrel length. The only issue that I encountered was with the mags. The Pmags work extremely well but all others watch out. I have fired just about every make of AK from when I was in the military to civilian life and have encountered a few picky AK's here and there...this one gave me the most seating problems. I used Hungarian, East German, Croatian, Polish, South Korean, and Bulgarian...none of these would properly seat into the receiver...Love the weapon but hate the limitation due to it's picky eating habit. Lucky I have a good number of Pmags for this one.

It's bad ass! Put a 2 chamber break on it , and one piece gas rings, ran 150 rounds with some issues that we're my fault. I put reduce hammer spring in and was getting a lot of light strikes. Bent spring for more power, had less. Got home switched back, and no issue! runs awesome! The ar10 buffer spring works great! Ejection was 3oclock! Almost no recoil with break on. Break off was kicking like a mule! Lol
Doesn't like tapco mags, they just won't fit!
Steel, and Magpul mags work great.

This is the perfect do everything pistol!!!
The KS47 10.5” pistol is the perfect package. This pistol was delivered ready to rock and that’s exactly what it did!!! Here is what I’ve added to mine: Holosun 515CU red, Strike Industries charging handle, BCM Kac foregrip, Gemtech HVT suppressor and brake, and a Holosun L221G IR/visual green laser.
My palmetto KS47 and 8.5” 300 blackout.

Way Cool
200 rounds fired. Excellent fit/finish. Everything is tight. Functions perfectly with a variety of mags. Very happy.

Lightweight, reliable AR pistol for AK mags
I shot about 200 rounds today of a bunch of different kinds of steel cases ammo. Not a single malfunction. Very fun to shoot. Lightweight and surprisingly low recoil. Less than my AK.
I took it apart, cleaned & oiled it right out of the box. I also Locktited & retorqued the gas block screws from reading other reviews.
I used the supplied Magpul mag and an old steel surplus (unknown make) mag. Both worked perfectly. The steel mag snapped in great. The Magpul mag fits very snug. I added a Strike Ind. extended charging handle, Utg hand stop and mounted a Sig Romeo 5 red dot. Now I just need a weaponlight. The trigger is good for a mil spec type. Scaled at 5.5lbs and has gotten smoother with use. Glad I bought this.

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.
