where can i buy an authentic AK used in a foreign battle?
c s on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'd start by checking with your neighborhood warlord. Typically they get first dibs on any equipment left behind when one of their employees join the martyr of the month club.
Why are you not hammer forging the barrel as well? Until you do this AK will not be comparable to a combloc AK.
Mitch H on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Give it a rest. What other American company is doing so much to make a good American AK? You can see their continually improving. How about "way to go Palmetto! Keep it up, an FN barrel would be awesome" by then Palmetto AK's will be better than most foreign. Good job Palmetto!!

Is the rear trunnion forged also? Will there be a model with a CHF or chrome lined barrel ?
David I on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Rear trunnion is cast. But this is common in all combloc AKs, my Russian built Vepr has a cast rear trunnion. There are also rumors of FN sourced CHF barrels, but we'll have to wait and see

What a buy!!!
Customer service was great. This beauty arrived oiled up and ready to go. Everything looks sturdy and well made.

Who says Americans can’t make a high quality AK at a more than affordable price point? This is proof.

Great gun mechanically, aesthetically could have done a little better.
I wanted to give this gun 5 stars so bad..haven't shot it yet but trigger feels great. Im just upset about the finish. I think with tax and everything I paid $760 for the gun, I wouldnt really consider that a budget ak anymore l but just about every corner of the gun there is bare metal where the finish has already rubbed off. Makes me second question going out and shooting the thing in fear of it forming rust.

THIS IS A FIVE STAR AK
As soon as I opened the box I knew I had purchased the real deal. When I took the weapon apart, I was impressed by the forged parts, and the fine workmanship. The range showed me the performance was impressive. Thanks guys, nice job.

Great rifle.
I have not had a chance to shoot the rifle yet, but the fit and finish is superb. The only issue I had was that the stock was a bit loose, but a shim fixed that. Headspace was good out of the box... I can't say that for the previous AK I owned.

I'm looking forward to getting it to the range.

PSA -- Great job on the rifle.

Great rifle lower handguard loose (fixed)
No cant on the sights. Super straight shooter. Nice wood. Lower hand guard was loose. I fixed it by installing a polish ak lower hand guard tension spring.
February 6, 2019
Not perfect but a solid rifle and great value.
First of all the rifle is beautiful. Rivets are good, finish uniform, stock and grips are clean. Front sight is straight, everything is square. Sighting in I only had to make a slight windage adjustment, the vertical was right on the money.

Accuracy seems good, but I haven't mounted a scope or done much bench shooting beyond sighting in. I was able to show up my buddies shooting ARs at a 8" plate dueling tree @ 70 yrds offhand. No malfunctions of and kind, about 120 rounds so far, wolf, tula, mostly fmj, some hp.

Two issues. First, the lower fore grip is a little loose. Not enough that it feels unsteady, but just enough that it makes some noise every time I grab it. Not a huge deal. Second, not all my mags fit. The older magpul mags and my Polish steel magazines are good to go, but I can't seat my magpul gen 3's with the steel reinforced tabs and some of my plastic waffle mags won't seat either.

Bottom line, I'm glad I bought it, I wish I could give it 5 stars but it did have the two issues mentioned. Overall if looks and feels great, and wants to be shot.

Best AK you can buy for $600
I ordered mine the day they were released, it took 12 days to get shipped and arrive at my FFL. Initial inspection, The rifle was packed well for shipping, had lots of metal shavings inside the receiver, was well oiled, finish is good. I always clean a new gun before shooting it.
With it sighted in the front post is pushed almost all the way to the left. I installed a AGL trigger even tho the stock trigger felt ok.
I have put 500 rounds thru it so far. No problems no FTF no FTE, runs like a cream puff. Every time I squeeze the trigger it goes Bang.
I am using Pmags gen2 and 3 along with croatian surplus mags, no problems. I love it. It's not perfect but pretty darn close, Especially for $600.

Great rifle
I'm very happy with my rifle. It arrived in perfect condition. All rivets were set well, the fit and finish is great. The sights were very close to dead on, as I only had to adjust the elevation a little. I am 330 rounds into it and it has been running flawlessly so far.

The trigger is smooth and suprisingly crisp. I was pleased to find a pin retaining plate installed - a nice touch.

I'm impressed.
My daughter trying it out.  It's her new favorite.

Mine Has A Few Issues
I would like to mention that I also own a GB2 Blem and the only issue with that one is the wooden bottom handguard is loose and had a piece of wood wedged in there. I fixed that issue by putting on Magpul furniture, and now everything is nice and tight.

The GF3 that I received, I have noticed a few things.

1. The muzzle break has a minor gap (like a half turn loose before fully tight/closed)

2. The magazine well seems tighter than my GB2 and I have to slam a few magazines in there to hear them click/lock in.

3. The charging handle sometimes stops about 1/2" or 1/4" before fully closing and locking in to the chamber. (I must mention that I have not fired these weapons yet, so I do not know if this will cause any malfunctions)

I am hoping that replacing the recoil spring with an ALG spring will fix the charging handle/bolt closing issue and or just wearing in after time. I am not ready to send this back to Palmetto State Armory just yet, but I am glad it has a lifetime warranty. I wish I could have given this a 5 star rating but I have to give an honest review.

Rifle has a loose lower hand grip
Picked up this g3 red ak today. Rifle is ok except for 1 issue. The front lower hand grip was not fitted to the rifle correctly. It is loose with front to back movement. I have contacted PSA via email and will see about getting this resolved.
