Palmetto State Armory AK-47 Build Kits

    A few months ago Palmetto State Armory released their own AK-47 rifles that they debuted at the 2015 SHOT Show. They’ve just released a few AK-47 build kits that help you build your own AK on a budget. To put together one of their AKs you’ll have to buy two separate kits, a barreled receiver kit and a Intro Build Kit that includes everything else needed to complete the rifle. Their barreled receivers start at $259 and their Intro Build Kits start at $199.


    Their barreled receiver kits include a 1mm stamped receiver and an already headspaced bolt that’s serialized to the receiver. They’re available with or without a side rail mount or lower handguard cap in case you wanted to add a Magpul Zhukov handguard.
