Default has anyone gotten their PSA kits yet?

Have the red wood parts kit to finish the build. Waiting on barreled receiver kits to return to in stock.

Anyone have theirs assembled yet? If so howd it go together (well?) and did you fire it yet?

Interested to hear good and bad.

Edit: also, is that frigging handguard sling loop on the retainer or not? Some say yes some say no

Got email today that my blem kit (barreled receiver) is on it's way to the FFL.

Bought the assembly (build) kit separately on another day. Was going to use surplus but decided to keep it all PSA.

PSA will be my *first American made AK. I'm actually excited about it a bit. Just hope they don't disappoint.

*Note: I do have two American made AK's in my possession. The Century c39v1, and ras47. Both are giant pieces of shit and are not counted as AK's in my opinion. At least the two I have.

I don't do BLEM's.
I'm especially not doing anything to leave a questionable area on my 1st impression of my 2nd US Built AK.
The RAS47 I bought when it debuted in hopes it would be truly great American and that crashed and burned back to reality.

Besides, I want to order when BOTH items I need are in stock to ship together.
The ALG kit for $129 I'm waiting for stock to come back.

Unless you are your own FFL, I don't think they'd ship together anyways.

Some shops will not want to be responsible for miscellaneous items as part of your purchase.

I got my shipping notice today will probably have it by Friday. I'll post impressions when I do get it. I was also wondering about the warranty but I assume that it is the same as their full rifles.

Exactly.

When I buy stuff, I have the entire order shipped to my FFL , not just the weapon.
Saves me paying multiple shipping packages. My guy's cool with it.

It *should* be an "other/ receiver* since there is no fire control group, HOWEVER, it isn't a multi caliber since it's pre barreled for 7.62 so if I had to guess id say it will be considered a long gun. Don't have mine yet so I couldn't tell you definitively

I think I'm going to buy one of these too. Have most of the parts to finish. Will be my first American AK. Looking forward to some feedback from guys who already bought. Mel will be good reviewer.

Sucks when you can't afford this price.

Oh, I didn't know that was an option from PSA. When I buy FFL items and non ffl items at the same time, their checkout process has me walk through the steps and it ends up sending them in different orders. I didn't even know their site let you change that. It probably would have saved me a boatload of cash on shipping on past orders.

Unlikely. Their serialized items ship from a different facility so the price is always calculated seperately
