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.

Zach M on Dec 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Buy the Gen2 bolt carrier.
what is length and weight?
Blaze on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Heavier than an AK. Same as a standard AR15 for weight/length.

I’m waiting for the complete upper and big for the last-47. When will that be available??
Zachary K on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I could check my Magic 8 Ball but you would probably have a better chance of getting an answer by emailing PSA.
Will steel cased ammo work reliably? Like tula or wolf? I'd like a answer explaining why or why not from someone that actually tried it in the gun. Not just a stick to brass vague answer. Thanks
JED36 on Dec 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Steel case works fine, the "enhanced firing pin" which is a little longer than a standard ar firing pin resolves the issue with the hard primers on steel cased ammo. Feeds and cycles fine
When will these be back in stock?

Rick W on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The gen 2 came out today. I had a gen 1 previously and it had a few issues. All of the issues I had have been addressed and solved with the updates of the gen 2. I ordered the pistol version today and can’t wait to get it.
The ks-47 upper will not work with a standard ar-15 lower but the lower will accept other ar lowers?
Arman on Jan 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Dude, please re-read your question. However here is the answer: The KS lowers and uppers WILL NOT work with other brands of uppers/lowers. These "Hybrid M-4" platforms are "PROPRIETARY" in design meaning you CANNOT mix and match with other brands. The KS upper won't run with an AR magazine and an AR upper won't accept an AK magazine. No matter how you ask the question, the answer is the same!
when will this be back in stock 1/14 has come and gone.....?

Since I live in CA, I would love to buy this rifle, but can this rifle install a kit called FREEDOM BUTTON KIT? which will release the upper & the lower receiver to release the magazine.
digiaoh on Jan 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Dude, you need to leave Kommiefornica.
Does the Gen 2 KS-47 bolt use an extractor made specifically for the 7.62x39? Can those extractors be purchased separately to have on hand for spares for the KS-47?
Kerry O on Feb 5, 2019
Will military surplus ammo work fine or do I need to stick with cleaner brass-cased ammo?
J C on Dec 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Any will work, but I prefer the Yugoslavian brass cased milsurp.
2 questions 1 I always go with after market charging handle mostly radian raptor can I use a standard 5.56 charging handle or do i have to get a ar10 charging handle and 2, do I have to put an after market ak trigger or would a normal 5.56 trigger group work?
QthaDude ! on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is an M-4 platform so 1) YES and 2) YES . This platform takes AR-15 associated parts for the upper and lower. The ONLY difference in this UPPER is that it is milled for and will accept the AK magazine. There is a wealth of info contained in the reviews and in the questions and answers.
Most of my AK mags have the bolt hold open followers installed in them... Does anyone know if these will function with this rifle?
J A on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They should, there is NO bolt hold open feature on the KS-47 lower.
Would a binary trigger work in this?
Blackguy on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any trigger will work as long as it is NOT a "drop in" trigger.
When will the KS-47 carbines come back in stock?
Matteo 6 on Jan 10, 2019

Jwenste on Dec 30, 2018
Can I convert this into a piston gun?
Donald E on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can.
Any chance of being able to swap the barrel to a 5.45x39 and use 5.45 bolt and 5.45 magazines? Cause that would be awesome
Everardo A on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As long as the barrel and BCG are for the M-4 platform, it should work. However you might need to match a different buffer spring to the AK-74 cartridge.
Do y'all consider this gun as reliable as an AK?
Heath E on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: So far no hiccups and very accurate. I have only 100 rounds through it so a little early to say but no FTF or FTE. Shooting only Wolf ammo through it and using Magpul mags
when will this gun be back in stock?
Timothy on Feb 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Now, 3-16-19
So you can use standard ar trigger groups in this?
Kyle S on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: From the description: 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.

So good I had to order the KS47 pistol upper and lower!
Currently my favorite PSA system. Has been nothing but reliable with even Romanian drum mag. Korean, magpul, East German, all working flawless.

AR15 accuracy with AK47 power makes the KS47 the gun of the year in my opinion with a working mans price!
The gen 2 has addressed the issues from the previous. I’ve run 400 rounds with zero malfunctions. Shoots with good accuracy out of the box. I’ve run wolf military classic and it’s been smooth. Really is a great gun and will not have the issues from gen 1. I am very happy with this gun purchase. AR15 accuracy with AK47 knock down power. It will not have issues like the mutant and it’s almost half the price. Nuff said. This is one of palmettos finest releases!

Great KS-47 rifle!
Got this rifle after years of looking for a better way to scope my two awesome shooting Norinco Mak90’s. I think this rifle beats the Ak hands down unless you plan on throwing handfuls of sand in the action or never cleaning your rifle. Fit and finish are awesome, well build rifle and just a hundred dollars more than an AK. I am no expert shot but it’s easy to one hole a target with 20rds. I was surprised to see the rifle shipped with a Magpul upgraded M3 mag, not a MOE mag. The only issue in 125rds I have had is the handguard came loose, not sure locktight was used on this part and think I have read somewhere that this has happened. No failures of any kind at this point and yes this would be a great GTW weapon. Thanks for a great review by Nutnfancy which led me to make the purchase and to PSA for a great rifle. My friends are thinking of purchasing now.
25yds first shots
50yds with a few bad trigger pulls.

PSA gives you .30cal firepower in a sturdy lightweight package impossible to not love.
I bought this firearm (my first PSA) due to some excellent word of mouth going around the Internet. Originally I had planned on getting the pistol variant but found my state doesn’t allow pistol shipments (sure whatever). I had to speak to PSA Customer Service and they were a delight to work with, getting me a code so I may buy the carbine length rifle in barely a day.

This is a truly brilliant design. 7.62x39 is perhaps my favorite caliber and having it in a sub 6lbs rifle with all the AR15 ease of use has me giddy. The firearm is balanced, and sturdy (only wiggle I could find was in the stock and even that was minimal). The mag release lever is a real treat, just big enough that you can use an extended trigger finger release a mag quickly. The Magpul furniture is of course good quality, and worth the price. The barrel is heavy, which excites me greatly, as many manufacturers will skimp on barrel thickness for weight and cost. Perhaps the only minor gripe is the charging handle was in no way greased on arrival and was incredibly stiff until lubed and used several times.

All and all I am incredibly impressed and it has made me a lifelong PSA customer.
March 10, 2019
I haven’t had the opportunity to shoot it yet due to the weather. But my friends are all buying one now too after I pulled it out of the box.

Quality control on bolt charging handle
I purchased the PSA ks47 last month when I receive the fire on is beautiful for what it is fit and finish was good and then I grabbed a hold of the bolt charging handle and clocked it back and it felt like I was pulling a Mack truck and then at the top side of the bolt charging handle after I took it out of the upper receiver I noticed that there was a another nipple of aluminum that I had to grind down in order to get it slide freely and it also chewed up my upper receiver that's the only issue I've had with the gun other than that it fires great I've already thought about 500 rounds through it. 1 misfire not one failure to eject not one issue the gun has been absolutely great

Very happy PSA KS-47 owner!!!
I purchased the basic gen 2 lower and the MOE gen 2 uppers separately. The fitment between the upper and lower is perfect. After 200 +/- rounds, no malfunctions of any kind, ammo was a mix of everything, steel and brass. Accuracy is very impressive!!!
I really like my Mini 30, but this rifle will out shoot it by a large margin with all ammo, not even in the same league. Most impressive is the Monarch ammo from Academy Sports, about 2" (some under, some over) at 100 yards, $5.99 a box. BTW, Hornady Black will shoot around 1" at 100 yards but is expensive for plinking.
Magpul 10 round magazines (the only mags I have) are a little hard to lock in and I have to pull the mag release lever to the rear for them to lock properly. They are tight but are getting better with use and I don't have a problem with it but thought I should mention it. Long term reliability will still have to be tested, but right now, I think this is an incredible rifle. Not an incredible rifle "for the money" just an incredible rifle!

Fantastic Rifle
I didn't know much about PSA but Nut N Fancy gave this rifle a glowing review! I usually only buy great quality firearms Sig, HK, Walther, and Dan Wesson. This was like jumping into the unknown for me but I'm glad I did. So far it has been flawless and very very accurate. My only criticism was that there were some tooling marks on the lower which should have been caught by QC.

Check Your Quality Control
I just picked up my KS47 from local FFL - I've yet to fire it. The rifle looks good with one exception - the pistol grip was so loose I almost pulled it off the rifle. There was at least a 3/16" gap between the grip and the lower receiver - so much that I was concerned about damage to the safety detent spring. My FFL and I both tried to tighten the grip without success. After completely removing the grip, a bunch of aluminum shavings came out of the lower reciever. Now the grip fits fine.

For the life of me, I cannot see how this could have passed any form of quality control before leaving assembly. Anyone who simply held the rifle should have felt the loose grip. Now I will have to completely disassemble and examine the rifle before I trust it to function properly.

Last - Claiming that the rifle ships with a Magpul magazine "where allowed by law" is disingenuous. You removed the magazine from my rifle before shipping to a state that allows 30 round rifle magazines (Hawaii). I understand your desire to avoid costly litigation with liberal gun laws, but you are imposing restrictions on your customers over those already restrictive laws.
