    Isn't that the company that has no ties at all to the real Kalashnikov?

    Different logo, how many Kalashnikov USAs are there?
    OK...same company, different logos...and formerly an importer of AK style weapons.

    We are very excited to debut the new Kalashnikov USA products. Since the imposition of sanctions against Concern Kalashnikov in Russia on July 16, 2014, we are working to transform our company and staff from an importer and 922(r) compliant conversion specialist, to a full-fledged manufacturer. We are very proud of the results shown in the following pages and we hope you will appreciate our efforts.

    We started with the proven AK-47 design, utilizing the Russian Heritage of the long stroke, gas piston, rotating bolt design. Starting with a firearm that is simple to operate, easy to maintain and built to last for years, this reliable and durable firearm has all the stopping power of a .30 caliber round. To this legendary firearm, we added the American Innovation. First, thru the use of CNC design and manufacturing, all of the parts that were formerly cast, are now CNC manufactured, meaning the tolerances of the parts can be tighter, resulting in an improved fit and finish. Less space and play between the moving parts results in smoother operation, a crisper trigger and more accurate shot placement. Depending on the material, all parts are now finished in phosphate or black oxide, for longer and better anti-corrosion resistance. The barrels and chambers are nitrocarburized case hardened for a long life with superior corrosion resistance. Nitrocarburization is a more environmentally friendly process than chrome lining a barrel.

    The superiority of the autoloader. Shotguns based on the AK design have reached a level of such popularity in the USA because of the same Russian Heritage as the AK rifles, the same design, the same operation and the same reliability as the AK rifles. We are using the same American Innovation on the shotguns, including CNC production, and improved coatings. We are also applying our experience doing 922(r) shotgun conversions to improving the shotgun cycling.

    Hmmm, ...."meaning the tolerances of the parts can be tighter, resulting in an improved fit and finish. Less space and play between the moving parts results in smoother operation, a crisper trigger and more accurate shot placement."......isn't one of the claims to fame of the Kalashnikov, that you could fire it dirty, covered in sand, dirty water, full of mud (rinsed)? Will not tighter tolerances wipe out that advantage?

    Naah, just means that Russian Peons have to have a college education and know how to clean the rifle.

    It's all about the Math.

    And in about 100 years, folks will be whinning that you have to "break them in" with 500 rounds before they're reliable. Just like the 1911.

    Thought so.

    Anyway what I posted sometime back is a AK with the charging handle on the left and other improvements. Can't find it now so maybe later.

    I have been drooling over one of the C39v2 in the link I posted. I don't really care which one. They tossed them at Ja,es Yeager on Youtube to do a 1000 round dump though two different models. Good times!

    If I could say something with out starting a war here, but the AK "has all the stopping power of a .30 caliber round". OK, WHAT ".30 cal. round"? Why NOT say what ".30 caliber round"? I can think of 28 off the top of my head right now. Give me a little time and I can come up with quite a few more. I am not picking on you, just about every magazine and quite a few books use the useless term ".30 caliber" that can mean anything from pistol to rifle cartridges instead of "cartridges" or "a" .30 caliber cartridge. Pretty much from .30 Luger to .300/378 Weatherby is covered by ".30 caliber". "Caliber" is just the hole in the barrel and has little to do with the size of the cartridge other than bullet size. "Caliber" and "cartridge" are NOT the same thing! So why is it so hard to say WHAT .30 cal. round?!

    Things like (actual examples) ".30 caliber ideal for elk" (Really? My .30 M1 Carbine is an ideal elk rifle? WOW!). "The .30 caliber ideal for world wide use" (I love my .30 Luger P-08, but really don't think of it as a world wide cartridge). If they mean the .30-06 is ideal for elk, why not SAY ".30-06 ideal for elk"? If they mean .308/.30-06/.300 Win Mag are ideal for worldwide use, why not say "308/.30-06/.300 Win Mag are ideal for worldwide use"?

    If the AK is a .300 Whisper or whatever, why not say .300 Whisper instead of getting cute with the ".30 cal" stuff? JUST SAY WHAT YOU MEAN DARN IT!

    End of rant.

    This has been a test.

    You may now resume usual incoherent internet babbling and attacks.

    This has only been a test.

    7.62X39. Says so right in the catalog for those that dig a little deeper than the first paragraph in the sales fluff. Did I pass the test?

    .30x39mm? The Ak round? Haha. Yeah, that stuff irritates me too. You run into the same thing if you like .45LC...

    Yeah the "Long" Colt used to bug me too, but I finally just got used to it. At least there was a reason for it, there was the .45 S&W Schofield and .45 Colt being used by the Gov't (they are not interchangeable in the S&W, but both work in the Colt SAA. Just think .44 Special and .44 Mag). Walk into a gun store and ask for some ".45 gov't pistol shells" and they say which ones? "The Long ones!" That also weeded out at least three other .45 cartridges. What? You were expecting me to say "at least three other 45 calibers"?

    Like I said, cartridge and caliber are two different things. It just bugs me to no end that people use them interchangeably and in such stupid ways. If you mean a .30 cartridge, say a .30 cartridge, or better yet, TELL us what cartridge! I mean serious, how hard is it? Besides the 7.62x39 is actually .310"-.311" depending on what country, factory, year, etc. Most Soviet stuff was all over as far as who used what when. But hey, why say "7.62x39" when you can leave it open ended and call it a ".30 caliber" instead of telling people what you actually mean?

    Let this be a lesson to you. If you grew up in a time when English was an actual language and not some mishmash of what ever some idiot feels like babbling at any given time (listen to any politico, especially Hillary or Kerry to see what I mean) and it does NOT depend on what the meaning of is is at that time, then you will get cranky too. Or most readers will get cranky about something else that just bugs the snot out of them when some idiot does it wrong or stupidly.

    Yes Ghrit, you did well. However that was not what he posted. If I wanted to read Chinese into English weirdness's, which I do entirely too often, I just expect a Chinese on the other end. As in the message I got the other day: "I ship now package I get you soon now package." I THINK what he said was "I shipped your package and you should get it soon.". Of course my Cantonese is no better either, "I love talk listen you Cantonese!" (I love listening to your Cantonese). I just expect better from people if it is their native language. To/too/two, there/their (OK, I will type there and mean their too), red/read, etc. But sometimes You just gotta say what has gotta be said.
