They stay true to the original design with steel reinforced front tab, feed lips and locking lug.

Kalashnikov USA KR9 Part II ( Fixed)

You may recall last week the Kalashnikov 9MM AK had some ..issues.

After my friend emailed them and told them what happened. Then they saw my post about it, they were quick to ship out a replacement part.

The gun worked fine today.

I was able to get prone and fire a 15 round group at the target 50 yards away. Ammo was simple Speer Lawmen 147 gr Ball ammo.

So far so good as the guy kept saying as he fell from the 50 story building. I will keep updates going while we ring this gun out over the spring and summer.

Kalashnikov USA KR-9 “Quality”

Kalashnikov USA has this little pistol that should be a nice little pistol caliber carbine. A 9mm AK that scratches a certain itch a lot of people have .

The target above was shot at 25 yards at the head and 50 for the body using ball 9mm and red dot. Off hand and not from a bench.

SLR even makes a nifty hand guard for it.

Problem is…

Less than a 100 rounds and it broke. Looking around various places online tells me this kind of thing is a common occurrence with Kalashnikov USA .

Yes the company did send out a replacement as soon as they were told. But it shouldn’t have happened in the first place.

I guess the lesson here is .buy Russian..?

Will continue the review when gun is functional again. Hopefully that will correct the problem because otherwise this little AK is pretty nifty.
