Originally, I started a thread about this thing over there: https://www.carolinafirearmsforum.com/index.php?threads/finally-snagged-one-psa-ak-v.46797/, but then @JRHorne admonished me for posting in the wrong section SO ... I'll start posting here. This may be my umpteenth AK but it is also my first PCC. Say hi to the AK-V from Palmetto State, an American-built homage to the Vityaz subgun: I finally snagged one of these earlier this week after buying mags for one for quite some time. Stopped by the range after work this evening and although I may have sweated right though my shirt, this little thing is cool as hell. I shot a couple hundred rounds of Speer Lawman 147-grain rounds and had zero malfunctions of any kind: Played around with it a bit at first, plinking at steel gongs, rapid firing, etc. and then stapled up a target. I started at 25 yards to zero the red dot and put five rounds into the top left corner, moving clockwise from there and ending with a 10-shot group in the center at 50 yards. I adjusted the Burris FastFire 3 after the four five-round groups (yes, there are indeed five shots in the bottom right of the target - two bullets just decided to share one of the holes). I may need a couple more clicks to the right after looking at the center bullseye: Overall, this little 9mm AK pistol is quite impressive. Stout and overbuilt, and maybe even a bit heavy for its size. Nice trigger reset. Two hundred rounds through four different PSA mags and not a single hiccup. If I have time Saturday or Sunday, I'd like to get back out and try a few more brands of brass- and steel-cased ammo in 124 and 115gr, along with some HP rounds. I left the factory-installed aluminum buffer alone today. I've read that removing it softens the recoil a bit, and PSA has stated that running the gun without the buffer does not void the warranty. However, 9mm ammo + seven pounds of gun = negligible recoil to begin with. At this point I'd certainly recommend one of these to anyone who's interested and has the funds. As I said over in the AK section, it appears PSA supply of these things is finally catching up with demand, as multiple AK-V models remain in stock for a good while every weekday afternoon starting at about 4 p.m. (the pricier folding brace model is in stock as of this post). If you have an Active Junky account you can save an additional 6% on one of these (if you don't have an account, feel free to PM me and I'll send you a referral link - we'll both get an extra $10 in our accounts). Fun gun!
