Default AK in 5.56mm?

I saw something posted about y'all making one soon? Can you elaborate on that or is that something we have to wait till Shot Show for? If you were to make it what mag do you think it would use?

Later

We will be releasing more on it at Shot Show!! Right now, we are just saying that we are making it, and it will take AR mags.

Thanks,

C'mon man.

PSA told us they'd be releasing more info at Shot show. Said info will make it to the interwebs almost instantly.

Patience is a virtue.

Just FYI, polish & Bulgarian 223 mags go for over $40ea regularly... there’s a market for a us made decently priced mag

While the AR mag adapter thing is out there, and everybody would love to use thier existing mags. That doesn’t bode well for your prospective future mag sales... does it? Competing with everybody to sell a super cheap, low profit mag?

Opportunity... to make a mag that fits all the hard to find 223’s. Vepr, saiga, bulgy, polish, etc. volume would be pretty good, and who else is doing it?

I think it would sell great at a certain price point. If its $800-1200, it would probably be a no go. What price do you guys think would be reasonable?

I like the way you think. It would still look right and mags could still be had for a decent price (for now).

I'm gonna guess and say 599-699 when they run a sale. Which should be ok. Anything near 1000 will be to much.

Is like to see Rob Ski test one.

Josiah, you suck. LOL (no one likes waiting for Pete's sake)

You telling me PSA can keep secrets better than the White House. Come on man,

You killing me, Smalls.

I'm just saying, if the price is right, I'm getting one as long as the trunnions and bolts are forged. I will also be shooting the snot out of it and will let the guys know an honest report. I hope it's going to be a great rifle. Then, I'm going to get another one for the safe.



Heck, my office is 5 mins from your store in Irmo.



How about at least some insiders news when 1 will be able to get it from the store. I want to get 1 early as possible please.

Then there goes all the $10-$20 Galil Mags. lol

I get the sentiment, I like rock in mags, but...

In terms of a never ending mag supply in North America, the STANAG mag reins supreme.

Yeah bud, you've completely missed out in SHOT 2017.


Luckily for you, SHOT 2018 kicks off in a week.
