Default AK-101, K-USA? PSA? Anyone?

What's the story with the AK-101 these days?

Has Palmetto said anything about making a clone? (I know they said they were making a 5.56 AK, and an AK-103 clone, but hadn't heard anything about an AK-101 clone specifically)

What about Kalash USA? Anything on an AK-101 to follow their Vityaz and AK-103 clones?

Anybody else out there making a nice -101 that a 5.56 AK fan can buy?

Just find a fully converted SAIGA IZ-114, or find a sporter IZ-114 and convert yourself.
Not very high demand , so you'll have a better chance of finding them lower priced then other caliber variants.

Blackrebel88 got this one recently off the marketplace listings,

Another option goin right now, needs a lil work but....

Thanks AcesHigh, but if I was going to go that route, I'd just send the 5.56 Saiga I already own somewhere, (who?) to be converted. All I'd really need would be the sidefolder and a 24mm FSB.

I was just kind of hoping that with the Vityaz and AK103s coming out maybe someone would have a new with warranty AK-101 on the horizon.



Obligatory pic of said 5.56 Saiga

Nice rifle DMK. Have you looked at the PufGun .223 mags? They make them for rifles with the bullet guide installed or without. You can get steel lugs on the mags if you have the bullet guide installed. I purchased a few with the steel lug for my Saiga .223 and had to file down a small amount of the front of the mag to give relief underneath the trunnion, but they work great and are probably more reliable than the ProMags.

Thanks!

No, I've never tried anything from Pufgun. I have a bullet guide installed and was lucky enough to buy about 15 Bulgarian Circle 10s when they were cheap, so that's all I use.

I had to make the same mod to my Bulgarians. Just a little bit with a hand file.

If I’m not mistaken, k-USA said at shot show that they are going to be doing a 556. I don’t know that they will be doing an Ak-101 clone but they did say they would be doing a 556 offering.

I heard that too. They also said they would release 5.56 ahead of 5.45, opposite of PSA. I think it was during Rob Ski's quick Q&A.

I was just hoping that since they are so proud of their AK103 and KP9 Vityaz clones, that they would naturally do an AK-101 and hoped someone heard something.

I thought they said they were going to be making all the 100 series aks in that interview, may have been hopeful ears on my part as well.

K-USA hasn't even released the 103 yet, be willing to wait a long time... If ever.

I'm reasonably sure I heard that too, and the SVD

I would be patient and find a nice Saiga 223 to convert. Gather parts now and wait for prices to drop hopefully after Trump is reelected. Haven't seen any for reasonable prices. Everyone thinks unconverted models are worth $1k+ right now which is absurd.
