I could be wrong but I think they said late summer. So expect end of the year or 2020

better question is when will these companies figure out that people want trunnion folders and MODERN ak-100/aks-74/ak-74M patterns... FOLDERS, RPK's and shit like that, we have an unlimited supply of AKM, milled ak's and fixed stock ak74's already and your not going to beat imports that have been doing that shit for 70 years.

I'll believe it when I see it. If it does come back, it'll have at least a $100 price increase. Most likely more than that though and very limited quantity plus a few quality control issues.

Already have one.

Hopefully the PSA 74 & 74-P will be considerably less expensive than an Arsenal.

I'm guessing that like a smart company would do that they are focusing on fixing any current issues and streaming production before dumping more products on the market. At least if they want to maintain a reputation and sell a product over the long run

They should get close to the Arsenal first in rifles parts quality, Bulgarian is with chrome lined/cold hammer forged barrels. Only minus there is painting.

PSA said they plan to use an FN CHF/CL barrel down the road for the 74s, like they plan to do with their AKMs.

*desire to know intensifies*

If Kazanlak was going to make more 104 then Rob or Mishaco would have said something.
