A pistol form of this, with the folding Brace, at a good price point, would be a winner. Any thing coming?

Does this take steel mags as well?
Jesse O on Dec 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am currently 0/1 on steel magazines fitting it. P-Mags have a more pronounced ridge that locks it into the magazine well; and the steel magazine I tried did not have a large enough ridge to actually lock in place. You can either try to find steel magazines with wider and larger ridges, stick to P-Mags, or machine out your magazine well.

Eric R on Feb 12, 2020

Had some issues with mine.
Picked mine up a month or so ago from my FFL holder. Wish I could give it 5 stars but had a few minor problems with it. The front sight post was not a tight fit and the safety lever was sloppy. Called PSA customer service who wanted me to send the rifle back. As easy as it is to fix said problems and to avoid the pain of boxing it up and sending it back I took 5 minutes of my time to fix the issues. The most troubling problem I had was a quite a few failures to feed. After trying several types of magazines and ammo and still having way to many FTF I used some polishing compound on the chamber. That seems to have taken care of that issue. The rifle now runs 100%. The rifle does have a nice fit and finish to it. The Magpul furniture makes it a nice handling rifle. Accuracy is better then what I have seen in other AKs. To be fair I called customer service twice about the shortcomings and they urged me to return the rifle for repair.

I really like this gun!
although I have many firearms, I did not have an AK, so this review is not a comparison between AK variants, but is specific to the PSA model only. Shipping to my FFL was fairly quick, and the gun came well packaged. I cleaned and lubed it, and off to the range, where I couldn't get on paper at 100 yds... undeterred a checked out to youtube videos and bought a front sight adjustment tool and was quickly able to get it dialed in. We mostly just shoot steel plates at 100 yds an so I haven't shot it really for groups, but I would guess even with the cheapest of steel cased stuff I am hitting the 8" gong every time, 6" gong most of the time, and 4" gong maybe 1 out of 4, but to be fair, my eyesight isn't that good, and a 4" gong at 100 yards is pretty dang small..

the only mags I use are P-mags because they are the cheapest and because they work. Havent tried any others.

only failure I had was the shoulder stock thru bold was never screwed into the slant block nut, and the nut eventually worked its way forward and under the trigger preventing the trigger from tripping the sear. reassembled it, and used a bit of lock tite and it should be good to go now. also, the trigger pull was horrible.. long, heavy and gritty.. got after it with a Dremel and some polishing compound. now it is just long.. but hey, I didn't by this thing to be my bench rest rifle!

all in all, I think it is a great bargain, and my kids love to shoot the thing, as do I! it does spew brass every direction know to man, and with much force, so a brass shield is a must if shooting at a range with folks to your right! Ha!

I also modified the safety to add a bolt hold open feature.

will likely buy another one.. or two!

Great rifle
This has been a great rifle. Out of the box it looked and felt great. PMAGS seated and fit really well, using mostly magpul gen 2 mags. Rifle has run fine so far with mostly cheaper ammunition. Wolf steel, tula hp and fmj as well as their copper jacket target rounds.

Everything functioned great, sighted it in at 300 meters with the iron sights and really happy with how it shot. Butt stock has a bit of rubber as well which certainly softens the kick.

Really excited to make use of the optics mount to put something on that will make it a little more comfortable to shoot at range. Pretty easy to hit consistently out at 200 yards, but myself as a shooter I do find myself hitting at about a minute of man at 200, but it seems like it could do better with a keener eyesight.

An impressive rifle, especially for the price.
I've been extremely impressed by the quality of this AK. Fit and finish is excellent. The rivets are all well done. The only magazines I had issues with were the Magpul AK/AKM GEN M3 (with the metal tabs). I had to file the back tab a bit on all three of them to get it to lock into place, but I'd rather do that then have them be loose as a goose.

I just bought this gun and Im anxiously waiting to hear back from customer service on how my problem can be resolved...I'll write another review accordingly. BUT HERE'S WHAT YOU HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT THIS GUN...#1 IT DOES NOT ACCEPT VARIETY OF MAGS. in fact, the one I bought only accepted the single mag that came in the box. Thats it. It wouldnt even accept other Magpul mags of same model/generation. It wouldnt accept Tapco mags, Euro mags, new or surplus metal mags. Nothing! Few guns accept any/all mags but I know that a 1-mag rifle is NOT what PSA is trying to produce. #2 If you still order this gun then TAKE VARIETY OF MAGS WITH YOU AND TEST THEM WHEN YOU PICK IT UP AT YOUR FFL. #3 DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT SIGN THE TRANSFER PAPERWORK UNTIL YOU INSPECT THE GUN! This actually applies to all internet-bought firearms. All sales are final with guns, so you cant get your money back if theres anything wrong with it or you dont like it. Had i done this with my PSA i wouldve promptly sent the gun back for either a refund or exchange once I found out something was wrong with it. #4 INSPECT EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT THE GUN BEFORE SIGNING. As for mine, I do love the trigger, was excited to see that it had a pin retention plate vs spring. Rivets were...very good. Not perfect but looked pretty solid for budget gun. Same for sight post and gas block pins. Great finish. Wasnt a fan of Magpul furniture but I am now because of this gun. #5 NOBODY IS PERFECT. Every company makes at least some lemons during production, even manufacturers like PSA who have nothing but glowing reviews online. So im not mad that my gun is no good. I just got caught up in the hype around the PSAK G3 and assumed my brand new, American-made gun would be perfect upon arrival. Heck, it even came with the signed inspection card of the person who checked my gunn I was impressed! But at end of the day a gun is a gun, you gotta check examine each one especially budget ones like PSA. Im optimistic that they'll let me send the gun back for repairs and that they'll get me a rifle that lives up to their reputation. And at this point I still want to try their other guns in future. It just sucks cause i saved money to buy this gun and will have wait for who knows how long before this gets resolved. But thats how it goes sometimes. I just want others to learn from MY mistake.

Bolt carrier VERY poorly machined
After every shot the chamber stay stuck open, and not able to push forward to close. After inspecting it realized the bolt is catching on the bolt carrier due to machining that looks like a child dremmeled out the slot. It's back in for "repairs" now. Wasn't able to shoot more than 8 rounds.

Great Rifle for the $!
Got this rifle for $610 shipped to my local FFL. Well worth the money especially with Magpul furniture and how clean the rifle is. Riveting is super clean. Super tight construction with a great feel. My first AK but after looking at other s and doing research, glad I picked up this USA made AK.
Changed out the flash hider, but PSA makes a great rifle!

Very nice AKM.
My first AK platform rifle and am highly impressed. The price was excellent. Fit and finish were outstanding. That slant muzzle brake had to go, and was replaced with an AK 74 style device. The MOE furniture was a very nice touch. I haven't taken it to the range yet but am looking forward to it. Really haven't messed with an AK since RVN in '72 and am totally happy with PSA's version.

Sweet Rifle
Bought this rifle in black last June, Installed the Zhukov folding stock (The YUGO does not fit) and ak operators union $39 fighter muzzle brake and the primary arms 1x cyclops sight. All that was left was to give my rifle a girls name. "Nadia" has operated flawlessly 3500 rounds down range and wear marks in the usual places are minimal. Nadia gets a good cleaning and greasing after every range day. (Not necessary. But it is just me) .Love this weapon and would recommend the GF3 to anyone wanting a quality reliable USA made AK at a unbelievable price! Great job PSA!

Great rifle, great price, but...
I just picked up my PSAK-47 rifle today (2/5/20) and stripped it down to clean it. Everything looked good, felt good, but when I went to reassemble, the take down for the gas tube wouldn't engage and lock down. It appeared to be a clearance issue between the roller and the gas tube. Using the method described in PSA' video about using the bolt to lock the gas tube down, the roller bent. After a little filing down the roller, it finally engaged and locked the gas tube down. I know it supposed to be tight, but not that tight. Anyway, it was a minor inconvenience and functions properly now. I would recommend this rifle to anyone who is in the market for one. just be aware of the gas tube roller issue.
