I’ve heard the previous model had issues with part interchangeability like using a different carrier or bolt. Does this generation have that same thing going on or would you be able to swap in parts from other AK’s and parts kits if needed?
Wyatt B on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Any bolt swap will generally require fitting. AK's require the bolt to be fitted and spaced specifically to the rifle, it's part of the build process.
What length cleaning rod will fit on here? I saw someone said a 15.75" was too long for it to properly fit at the trunion. Couldn't find an actual length for what would fit. Thanks.
Ali A on Dec 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Buy a cleaning rod for an AKM.

Steve K. from Arizona
Steve K on Mar 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This Rifle is meant to be a Clone. However their new AK that is chambered in 5.56x45 NATO that accepts STANAG magazines was showcased at ShotShow 2020 and will come with a Bolt hold open Feature. Other than that, I hope they continue producing pure AK Clones.

Who makes the receiver for the PSAK-47 GF3? Where do they come from.
Jason C on Jan 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I think it's in-house. PSA either bought or merged with DDI who used to make their own AKs.
What bi pod would be best for this rifle?
Scott H on Dec 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You are better off purchasing the MOE version of this rifle as it will have M-Lok slots that allow for easy mounting of a bi-pod. With this rifle, you would need to change out the hand guard, or buy a screw in swivel stud and screw it into the hand guard. The other option would be to purchase a bi-pod that attaches to the barrel.

Beautiful, Accurate, and reliable
Lucked out and got one with non-canted iron sights. So far haven't had a jam and I'm shooting some impressive groups after a minor elevation adjustment. A muzzle brake and cleaning rod really complete the gun. Went for the AK-103 look of course right after I order it they announce the 103 Klone :(

Oh well, very impressed with this rifle. Palmetto hasn't let me down yet!
Aftermarket cleaning rod and Tapco mag, AK74 style muzzle brake that I fire blued in used motor oil.

Amazing
After a long string of bad aks I was ready to give up hope I from expensive to cheap I couldn’t get a reliable one until I found palmettos psak47, I was skeptical since the price seemed too good to be true but all the reviews spoke very highly of the rifle and they all turned out to be true, nothing short of badass, I got the rifle it was oiled nicely, all rivets were perfect fit and finish were tight and clean, and they send a card with the name of who inspected it for accountability, thank you Joli or Jodi hard to read your signature but my rifle is top tier absolutely amazing. If anyone is thinking of buying one and has doubts because it’s US made, you won’t be disappointed. Stop trying to chase the overpriced unobtainable Arsenal’s and such, PSAK47 for the win, thanks a million guys I will definitely be buying another in the future

Quality AK
I am very impressed by this rifle. It arrived in immaculate condition. The finish and engraving work is very nicely done. All the furniture was tight and the fitting lines up perfectly. All the internals are quality. There's no need to look any further if you are searching for an AK. I read several reviews from several sources prior to purchasing this rifle. Many people are claiming that these gen 3 AKs from PSA are one of the best (if not the best) American made AKs available today. As far as I'm concerned this is one of the best Aks available today period, American or otherwise.

I think they sent me a Blem
I ordered, and paid for, a new non-blem PSA AK but by the looks of it, what I was sent was not what I ordered. The bottom front hand guard looks like it was spray painted with black paint and was flaking off. The receiver looks like it was re-finished or painted over. You can tell by looking at the selector scratch. You can see where the new paint has filled in the old mark. I sent a message to PSA using their website but haven't heard anything from them. I'm very disappointed in the quality control they showed on this one. If I had ordered and payed for a blemished one that would be one thing but to pay for a new gun and get this.....not so much.

... more of an edit to previous review
Decided to take the gf3 to the range and shoot 600 rounds of Wolf 124g fmj to see how it functioned and test the new 8” steel target. Set up at 50 yard with the steel and an 8” reactive target. At 50 yards the grouping was around 4 moa, after more rapid fire, and a little high and left. Hitting the 8” steel plate was easy, about 30 of 30 so I decided to move to the 100 yard. With a six o’clock hold it was still a little high and left and opened up a little so I tried the steel. Hitting the steel was pretty consistent at about 28 of 30 hits and the misses were probably more me then the gun. After a few mags at 100 I decided to try the scope. I should have bore sighted but didn’t. And here I want to point out that the RS regulate does needs to be adjusted way down. I found this out struggling for a half hour and getting frustrated before searching and finding that out on AR15.com. Anyway sighting the scope in at 50 got the better of me so I went back to the steel at 100 with irons.. Again hits were consistent but down to about 25 of 30, then 20, then 15 etc. until about 5 of 30. This could be from the gun heating up because after around 300 rounds fired I noticed the decrease in accuracy. Could also have been entirely me, or a combo of heat and poor shooting. After 400 rounds and 10 jogs back and forth down range I was feeling it and the last 200 rounds I just wanted to burn up.
Anyway, the guns only hiccup was a failure to charge on a fully loaded mag. Stripped a round, charged, fired, put stripped round back in mag and finished no problem. This was with a surplus mag which didn’t repeat that issue the second go around. There were four failures for trigger to reset. Which again was probably more me then the gun since this didn’t happen again after I paid more attention to my trigger use after that.
The last issue was around round 360 when the pistol grip loosened. I just snugged it back up and moved on.
Cleaning didn’t reveal anything abnormal other then some rear deformation on the bolt carrier, which hasn’t progressed since the first 160 rounds. The bolt has some shiny spots but looks good and the firing pin retainer looks good so far also. Yes the cleaning rod has to find it’s sweet spot before it goes in and I did install an MOE stock getting rid of the cleaning kit removal problem from the standard polymer stock.
Still pretty impressive for a “cheap” AK.

Pretty Nice for the $
Got one of the first when these were first released, probably should have waited because a few people reported sight issues. Had to push front all the way to the right to get close on paper. Called PSA, they emailed a RMA and return shipping label. Can't remember the turn around time but wasn't a long wait. Got it back and after sighting in again the front is better (within COMBLOC spec) and was able to zero at 100 yds.

If not for this resolved issue I would have given it 5 stars. The internals are machined nicely, the fit is excellent, the finish is excellent, all the rivets are pressed flush and tight. I only have a few hundred through it so far but haven't had any malfunctions with either fmj or hp. I cannot complain now.

I own Bulgarian, Russian, Romanian AKs and this PSA is the nicest of them all. Will see how well it holds up over time.

Pretty impressive for a “cheap” AK
For the price I think it’s hard to beat the price for what you get. I only fired about 160 rounds threw it to see how it ran and if it was on target. Rifle ran flawlessly and was centered but about 5 inches high shooting about 19 yards on the battle setting while standing. The cleaning kit fits but is a bitch to get in but just goes in when it finds it’s “spot”. And the AK cleaning kit goes in but doesn’t come out(which searching seems to be an American made stock problem). Those are the only complaints I have which seem minor compared to the positives. Is it perfect, no, although they do use the pin retaining plate and the trigger, comparable to my Para Ordnance P13 with the Les Bear trigger job is smooth to the take up then a slight bump and it fires. Pretty impressive for a “cheap” AK. Glad I took my friends advice and purchased when I did!

Finally a good American AK
I am a huge fan of AK’s, This is my 5th. I am actually down to 4, having relieved myself of a different American AK that was quickly developing large gouges on the bolt lugs. Most are awaiting the end of AKOU test, but they have passed before and I really like their stuff. So I went ahead.

I had opportunity to run 300 rounds through this rifle today.
Here’s my initial observations:
Zeroing required drifting the front post to the left and the elevation was spot on using 124gr Tula. The front sight might be slightly canted, but there is still plenty of room for adjustment. Groups around 2 moa with this questionable ammo. I am running a Midwest Industries ACOG mount and PA 3X ACSS reticle. The scope mount is centered over the bore and is flush on the rail and tight, but also makes contact with the rear rivet holding the rail. PSA might consider grinding those rivets flat as I am not sure if it will cause problems for other mounts. There’s no wear on the carrier or bolt, just polishing and smooth like my combloc rifles. Rivets are all flush and not over crushed. Hand guard retainer is loose, appears the cut in the barrel may be too deep. I found a way to shim the hand guard to tighten it up. Finish on the rifle is nice, but they might consider coating the sights with something else, they are highly reflective in the sun and difficult to see at times. I like the furniture, buttstock it has a place for the cleaning kit which is nice if you find the kit with the sight adjustment tool and punch for the bolt pins. The trigger is probably one of the best factory AK triggers I have shot. They use the retaining plate, and braided wire springs on the trigger. The extractor also uses a braided spring. Overall I am very pleased with this rifle and am likely to buy another one. Thanks PSA for stepping up and listening to your customers about forged parts. If wear remains consistent, this will be the best American made AK. I would strongly suggest you buy one of these instead of buying or being a “Tool” if you know what I mean.

Good products.
I have a Gen2 psak and I love it. Would highly recommend buying either a Gen2 or Gen3 ak from them. However, I am reviewing the gen 3 because in my gen 2 the feed ramp cracked in half and I am having to have it repaired through palmetto states great warranty (unlimited lifetime) however if you have to deal with their customer service, be prepared to be patient. It took about 4 days to respond to each individual email I have been dealing with the process to return my ak for about a month, and then it will take another 10- 15 days for them to fix my rifle and then ship it back. And on top of that it has to be sent back to my FFL and I will have to go through another background check for a firearm I already purchased (PSA rule, not a national or state rule from what I am told by my local FFL) so bottom line PSA makes great products and I highly recommend them. However, customer service is sub par at best. If you are buying an AR however, those are much easier to work on so you could fix it yourself pretty easy vs going through the warranty. Would recommend PSA!

Canted Sights PSAK-47 GF3
Received my rifle and took it out to zero. The front sight base (FSB) was badly canted. I was unable to zero at 25 yds. Also, the grip was barely screwed in, and the handgaurd retainer was not locked. By the time I got done at the range the grip was barely hanging on.

I went home and tightened the grip and locked the retainer for the front hanguard. I unloaded the weapon and checked the alignment of the FSB. There was no visible canting of the FSB, but as mentioned above I was unable to get the rifled zeroed before the FSB sight drum bottomed out to the left.

I called PSA and got an RMA. It took over 7 days after the call to receive my shipping label to send the rifle in. After several days of the rifle being back as PSA, I requested a repair update. I was told that the FSB had been boresighted, and it would be easier to zero.

I took the rifle to the range yesterday, and while the rifle did zero I still had to drift the rifle substantially to the left. The right side of the drum is flush now.

Also, on the right side of the FSB is several marks most likely caused by a hammer and only one of the FSB pins in unpainted. I am concerned that the FSB was not removed and repinned after adjustment as it should be. I am concerned that the FSB was just given several smacks to bend it left. That is unacceptable.

It is unacceptable that PSA is having problems with the sights. There is no way that my rifle was test fired on a paper target prior to being shipped the first time becasue PSA would have know how far off the sights were. Secondly, it appears that the rifle was not test fired after it went in for repair because the sights still required significant drifting.
