Palmetto State Armory broadens its KS-47 offerings, launching the Gen 2 series designed to accept MIL-SPEC AR-15 furniture.
Chambered in 7.62x39mm, the KS-47 G2 accepts standard AK-47 magazines.The KS-47 G2 boasts an improved design that offers a single large feed ramp allowing rounds to feed with ease. In addition, the company has upgraded the diameter of the barrel’s gas ports to improve cycling reliability. The KS-47 G2 now also features magazine stops machined into the upper. This change offers a better fit when the magazine is seated.
Rounding out the upgrades are the bolt lugs which underwent a slight adjustment to provide better feeding and prevent wear and tear on the mag’s feed lips. Though the second generation KS47 has been revamped, Palmetto State Armory says the G2 will still work with Gen 1 uppers and lowers.
Offered in 16.5-inch or 10.50-inch models, the modular style rifle brings more options to consumers, according to Palmetto State Armory.
