Add To:

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.

Will this work with an AR15 lower and c products mags?
William Hung on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, this upper will not work on a normal AR lower. The tabs on the upper receiver (see photo with arrows) are there to prevent over insertion of an AK magazine. These tabs also will prevent a normal AR magazine from inserting far enough for the magazine catch. It will only work on a normal AR lower as a single shot. Not hearsay, I've attempted it myself.
Will it work with the gen1 lower?

What weight buffer is best with the ks47 upper?
TheAKGuy on Mar 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Use the one that comes with the KS47 lower or you will run into problems.
Will this upper work with a regular PSA AR15 complete lower and the AR 7.62x39 mags or do I need a special lower to run this set-up?
john w on Feb 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you read the description, they answer this with bold text: The KS-47 G2 upper will not work with a standard AR-15 lower.
Is it possible to replace the barrel with a AR 15 barrel chambered in 6.5 grendle or 5.45x39?
Allen T on Feb 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can build a ks74. Get a dpms lo pro upper and have Paladin machine service mill the upper to accept ak style mags. It's simple and easy
Will Palmetto make this compatible with standard AR lower?
VerdinaMan on Jun 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It will fit on a standard AR-15 lower. However, look closely at the photos. There are overinsertion tabs which limit a normal AR magazine to function properly. You would have to grind them off. This upper is made to work with AK type magazines and the KS-47 lower, It is a very reliable system. Using a standard AR lower will make it a single shot.
Will this upper run properly with a suppressor attached?
Brandin S on Apr 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have seen it work. Maybe check the latest video reviews on the interwebs.
Will this work with Tapco mags ?
Trent F on Jun 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have one Tapco mag and it is very tight, it seems to fit ok when empty. I'd still to surplus steel mags or PMAGS.
Hello, will the lower accept a Magpul B.A.D. Level?
Richard M on Jun 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The KS47 is not compatible with the Magpul B.A.D. Lever.
Does this upper cone fully assembled?
Michael on Feb 26, 2019
Can I have upper shipped to my house? Is it just like AR15? Is the serial number on the lower?
DmitriyS D on Apr 9, 2019
Is the bolt carrier the same as any ar15 bolt carrier? Just different bolt?
Colin on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Different. KS-47 bolt
Will this work with Aero Precision M4E1 lower?

Great gun...
Was happy to report fit and finish was very nice and rifle handle brass very well. Didn't like the fact I couldn't use an upgraded bolt I purchased a while ago due to proprietary one.

Perfect alternative to a CMMG Mutant. The kinks have definitely been worked out of the previous generation platform.

Excellent Budget 7.62x39 AR
So to start with, I've shot around 500+ rounds out of it. No misfeeds, failures to eject. Nothing. As soon as I started changing shit, like getting a regular JP AR carbine captured buffer spring, I experienced 1 misfeed in 40 rds being shot off. I'm suspecting it's because I didn't use their heavier tungsten variant. Since then, I've put the the original buffer back in, and swapped out the charging handle to a geiselle. Guys aren't kidding out there when they say it's hard to charge, absolutely doable though. I've swapped out the MOE carbine to a fixed just out of preference. I will say however that the castle nut and buffer tube was not in place properly and had a wobble. Going from 7.62x39 to .223 now has me questioning if the .223 is made for ants.

As far as upper goes, just keep it as is, and add on stuff like a slot for your QD if you need it or a sling attachment. I'm a small person and can easily wrap my hand around the guard, so no worries there. The barrel is fine, as shown in the photo. If I'm bench resting and using good ammo, I can get sub-MOA with the stock trigger on the lower. I'm know I've spent more on accessories for this rifle than the actual rifle itself. Pretty amazing really. Main reason I got this instead of building a .300BLK is solely because I don't own a suppressor, and it takes AK mags, taking out the unreliability issue with all the other variants.

Great Rifle
I bought this upper and a rifle lower on Easter. Very happy with this rifle so far. I have around 500 rounds through mine, zero malfunctions or any other issues to speak of. Absolutely love the light weight hand guard. The whole rifle itself feels really light even with the heavier profile barrel. All of the video reviews I’ve seen have been positive, the only thing I would suggest is to swap out the muzzle device with a muzzle break. I put a strike industry King Comp on mine. The other things that definitely needs replaced is the charging handle. I put a strike industry extended latch charging handle on mine and that made charging the rifle so much better. Overall very happy with this purchase, and I would strongly recommend it!

Good upper for the money.
It’s pretty good for the money, is it cmmg quality no it’s not. It’s also not $1400. It has functioned well with no issues at all. Also be sure to use the correct mags that PSA recommends. Over all I’m happy with it.

grrat gun for a single shot weapon
I was excited to find this ar47 that would take AK mags. Finally got to fire it and sorry to say I shot 6 rounds and the next round jammed into the empty round. FTE on 6 rounds. Am using Korean 20 round mags. They are well made and appear to function properly. I prefer 20 round over the 30. Gun is well made and hoping to get this resolved. Really wanted this one over most others.

Hog killing machine
I bought this to kill hogs with - and it has not let me down yet. And it hammers them. I needed the 7.62x39 round because it’s cheap and very effective on hogs. I zero’d it @100 yards with Tula 154 gr soft points- I was really impressed at size of my first 3 shot group - it shot 1 moa. I made my adjustment and the next 3 shots were just a little tighter than the first group.
I have shot well over 450 rounds through it with out one issue. I have it out in the field almost every day, in the dirt, mud here latley dust (hasn’t rained in almost 2 weeks) - I wiped the bolt carrier off and put a little oil on it, that’s about all the maintenance it has received. I needed a work horse, well I got a mule this thing is tough, I absolutely love it.

Overall a solid upper. Everything is solid and tight. One problem is the finish of the upper is not the same as the handguard. Same with the lower, it is not actually black.
Also would love to have more handguard length options. (Need a 14 inch to fill the gap between the handguard and the blast sheild.) But the handguard is solid, slim and light. Mlok is cool but Keymod option would be great. Those little things is why it gets a 4 star. Function is 5 star so far.
Overall, it's a solid upper. But the finish on the upper and the lower, is not actually black.

Can’t beat this hybrid platform at any price point.
Fantastic firearm. PSA’s commitment to improve their processes shine through with the Gen 2. I paired mine with PA’s 1-6 FFP low power variable. Shooting Hornady SSTs, it’s as accurate as a 7.62x39 can be. Would definitely recommend and will purchase the pistol version soon.
