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 PSA A2 Classic Grip and KAK Industries Shockwave Blade and 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, as are the PSA Classic Polymer Handguards. 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.

Is it safe and ok to use steel cased ammo like in an AK would, with worrying about damage to the bolt?
EMT404 on Dec 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The bolt is a harder steel than the mild steel used for the casing. The myth of steel case damaging the bolt was debunked a while ago.
I live in Colorado, I was wondering if you'd be able to ship this with a lower capacity magazine or no magazine at all?
Marissa F on Feb 8, 2019
Do you have this in California legal model ?
Miguel A. H on Dec 1, 2018
If I want to SBR this, will the buffer spring and buffer fit a standard AR15 buffer tube?
Jay Saunders on Dec 2, 2018
Will this pistol accept regular Magpul AK magazines?
Vinny on Feb 6, 2019
Which part do I need to convert this to the m-lok handguard?
Jonathan T on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Depends on handguard. The MagPul drop in MLOK handguards, carbine length, would directly replace the plastic handguards here. No tools required.
Does this model have a triangular handguard end cap or a circular one?
Armando H on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just got it the other day and it is a round end cap. Rule of thumb is carbines have the round, mid-length have the triangular end cap.
can I change out the buffer tube and the brace 2 another?
Bullet on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I changed mine to a KAK Shockwave 2. But be sure to sure the original spring and buffer to assure proper cycling.
Does this come with any mags?
Anish B on Jan 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes One (1) 30 round Pmag
Will it accept a drop in auto sear?
julian g on Jan 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Perhaps, but it WILL NOT accept a "drop-in trigger".
Will an ar15 upper chambered in 7.62x39 fit on the ks47 lower??
RussA on Jan 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: NO! NO! NO! You cannot mix and match. the AR-15 uppers are NOT milled to accept the AK mags, and the KS lowers will NOT accept the AR mags.
Will a regular ar-15 style low profile gas block fit this?
Gregory S on Dec 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You may already be aware of this but you will also need to remove the classic hand guard, the FSB, and install a free float hand guard.
Is this considered a rifle?
Teetee on Dec 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it is considered an AR-15 Variant Pistol.
Will ar15 float tube fit it ?
Mark G on Dec 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there should be no issue converting the hand guard to a free float hand guard with the right tools, a low profile gas tube, the free float hand guard of your choosing, and compatible barrel nut.
Does this use the same bolt carrier and bolt as the models built on an AR type upper/lower? Curious if they've changed these parts for this variant, especially the bolt. Machining a standard AR bolt face to take the larger 762x39 thins the bolt steel out quite a bit. Thanks!

I live in Colorado would I be able to get this the 10-round magazine?

Well bought the Gen 2 10.5" pistol back in December and just had a chance to take it out for the first time today in February. Fires the first shot and short strokes loading the next round. Either just a click and an empty chamber or it rides the round home causing a jam. Man I was really hyped about this thing. Waiting on customer service now so I can ship it back...hope they get everything worked out.

So much FUN
I have ran 250 rounds of Wolf and Tula. Flawless! The heavy buffer tames the recoil and makes cycling perfect. I am shooting sub MOA groups with open sights. 1st AR 7.62x39 I have owned that has no issues. PSA has done their research. Look out piggies, its going to be a fun spring.

Most Badass AK Hybrid pistol out there!!! Too much fun to shoot!
This is now my new favorite gun!!! Has ran terrific so far with a couple hundred rds through it after a easy quality control issue that was missed 😑 First range test I had numberous failure to fire light primer strikes so I checked the firing pin which looked correct & fine. When I got home I figured the only other thing it could be is maybe a weak hammer spring which I was going to replace reguardless with my wolf hammer spring. Upon installing my wolf hammer spring I found the hammer spring wasn't all the way through the receiver, not even into the other side so it wasn't secured & only one side of support which explained the failure to fires. Installed some anti-rotate pins but hammer pin wouldn't go all the way through like the stock ones due to the hole having a burr. Knocked the burr out installed new hammer spring, pins & has not had any issues since, runs great!!!
Added Strike industries handguard & foward assist, angled foregrip, anti-walk pins, ATI grip.
Also Strike industries dust cover, UTG rear low profile pop up rear sight & extended takedown pins.
