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.

So those of us with the unreliable feeding of the gen1 version are sol??
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.
Will there be an option for mid-length gas tube?
JONATHAN T on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a mid-length carbine setup. So your wish is granted.
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: Yes steel case rounds work wonderful in this gun. I personally own 2 of them and all I have shot out of both are steel cases. I had one issue with my 2nd gun feeding but it was brand new and after a few rounds and a good cleaning it cleared up and has been running fine
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.

No weight is listed. How does the felt recoil compare to a conventional AK (e.g. WASR)?

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.
What is the definition of "KS" ?
Ed P on Feb 2, 2019
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 the KS-47 carbines come back in stock?

On my comment below, the bolt appears to not go back far enough to get the next round.?

Donald E on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can.
Does it use a standard AR charging handle?
Jalal S on Dec 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yep. I put a raptor in mine.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Are the barrels interchangeable can we change it with other 7.62x39 barrels on the market? Are the barrles mil-spec
Inlovewithpsa on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes any barrel for the M-4 platform will work, as long as you have a BCG to match.
Is there LRBHO? Or does it require something like the Weaponstech follower to activate a bolt catch?

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.

PSA KS-47... Perfection
Took one look at my new KS-47 Gen 2 at my FFL and fell in love. Fit and finish of the rifle is absolutely superb! The rifle is a monument to PSA manufacturing.

At the range, had no malfunctions and accuracy was superb. Shot Wolf MC (my standard) and even some cheap Tulammo. Even Tulammo accuracy was great. This is just an outstanding firearm. I am such a fan now, I will probably be buying the pistol version in the very near future.

Keep up the great work PSA!!!

Nice, very nice, but the stock triggers suck
I have both a Gen1 and a Gen2. The guns are both fantastic, but I put a HIPERFIRE Enhanced Duty Trigger, bought from PSA in both. The trigger come with a choice of springs(4.5 lb and 5.5 lb).I chose the 4.5 for both. You CAN NOT put a drop-in trigger in these lowers, so be prepared to buy another set up.
In my humble opinion, the Gen1 runs a little better than the Gen2, but right now they are both in the first stages if being broken in. I only use the Magpul plastic AK mags, and my ammo choice is Yugoslavian milsurp brass cased.THe ammo is listed as corrosive, but to me it ain;t that dirty. I run it in my PSA AK and in both the KS-47s I have. Enjoy! these are great guns!

Way to go PSA!!!
I picked this gun up on sale when it first went on sale. Couldn’t be happier with this gun! I have ran steel and brass ammo without any problems, 300 rds. Accuracy is good on this gun, better than a AK. Buy one if you are thinking about it. My only advice is to get a ambi charging handle like, a Radian Raptor and put it in.
First time at PSA. Circled are actually 25 yard groups.
At 50 yard outside range. Good strikes on primers shown in second photo.

Happy buyer
I was shopping for an AR platform that ran 7.62x39 as I have a ton of it for my AK, and a bunch of AK mags. Mostly due to the fact attaching red dot or optics on a standard AK with standard tolerances does always works so well from my experience. Palmetto made the mark with the KS47 to get my money.

Finish was good, not marks, dings and such but I’ll likely add my own with time.

Fit is very tight between the lower and upper. Take down pins were tight, needing a punch to pop them. The charging handle was basic which I immediately replaced with a Raptor style CH as the buffer spring is increased power which I expected. I would say overall the machining was clean and appears to be tight tolerances, sorry engineers not popping out the micrometers.

Magazines: Magpul mag came with it and no rattling or even wobble (big change from AK) and was the same for all my Magpul mags. However, it did not even seat any of my Tapco mags (x10). I would guess this has to do with PSA’s machining. I do have a few dozen steel mags but not planning to use them since I’m not sure how they wear and tear on aluminum lower.

First trip to the range, 250 rounds a Wolf steel 123 FMJ. Vortex 1x4. No issues to report, clean chambering and cycling. Accuracy was better than AK groups since you can attach optics. I was not able to “feel” last round like you can with an AK. Or AR for that matter since AK’s and their mags aren’t designed to do so.

Awesome piece of work
Just picked mine up from PSA in Summerville. Put 200 rounds through it with no issues. Put a primary arms 1x cyclops ACSS red dot with UTG magnifier.
December 23, 2018
Got it last week. Added CMMG CV .30 cal Brake, Raptor charging handle and Armaspec AR-10 recoil spring. Liberally lubed with machine gun oil as mentioned it was bone dry.
Range report: Wolf steel case ammo, magpul and Russian Bakelite mags with BHO followers. HK 416 sights with diopter rear. 300 rounds no issues whatsoever and accuracy was quite impressive I was indoors with iron sights and groupings were tight. I have several other PSA rifles and I have never had an issue with any of them! The recoil was like .223 with the Armaspec installed! Now waiting for the AK-V to come back in stock!!
December 19, 2018
great looking gun and shoots great but....
looks great, shoots well, with pmag ak mags. my only complaint is a non blem rifle should haven't big marks all over it. there is one about 3 inches long on the rail. maybe need to check things over better when you get yours.

Decent rifle 0 malfunctions at 240 rounds but....
My rifle arrived at my ffl on 12/12/18 very good fit no wobble between upper and lower and magazines fit awesome in it no wobble there either however it was bone dry! Not a huge problem....I lubed it up at home before firing it. The main issue was when you pulled the charging handle to the rear the bolt got stuck and I had to smack it, it went forward. It did this numerous times until about 50 rounds were through it. But my main issue is that the bolt carrier is beating and chunking out the face of my buffer wich it is a heavy buffer from the factory and it was test fired at the factory because it chunked it out there before it got to me you could barely make out the H on the buffer before I even fired the weapon. It is very accurate! It doesn't jam, or act up with any ammo....5 different types of steel case not a issue not even a light primer strike so far my only concern is the buffer face and my rifle was not a blemish it did have some light scratches on receivers nothing too crazy but the bolt sticking freaked me out until I started shooting it all is well except buffer face that's why 4 out of 5 stars I do love this rifle! Palmetto I will need more buffers please
