A visit to Kalashnikov USA is always a great time and Dave was a fantastic host. For 2022 the company introduced the KR104, the initial offering is an SBR version, but Kalashnikov USA will be releasing a pistol version, and both should be available in the February-March period at an MSRP of about $1,300. Kalashnikov USA builds all its firearms to original Russian specifications in the United States, they adhere to the original Russian designs. Kalashnikov USA will also be adding accessories to their product lines so you can expect to see new rails and MLOK compliant handguards, etc.
As exciting as the KR104 is, my personal tastes lean more towards the KR103 and the company’s KR9 9mm SBR. Regardless of how you roll, Kalashnikov USA has you covered with one of the highest quality AK rifles available today.

The KR-103 Rifle is the semi-automatic civilian version of the military AK-103, a 21st century version of Russia’s famous AKM (Avtomat Kalasnikova modernizirovanny) Rifle, chambered in the Soviet 7.62x39mm caliber. The AK-103 was one of the last designs overseen directly by Mikhail Kalashnikov, the father of the original AK-47. The KR-103 will accept all AKM or AK-74 furniture and accessories. It utilizes a US- made 7.62mm steel reinforced polymer magazine that is every bit as reliable as the Russian mags produced at the famous Izhmash or Tula arsenals in Russia. It can also accept a drum magazine. The KR-103 is also fitted with a highly effective muzzle brake similar to that first introduced in the AK-74 and which continues to be used in the latest generation of Russian military rifles, the AK-12 and the AK- 15.
