    PSA AK-E officially announced and up for sale

    After a long time it finally made it to the public and to the PSA website.

    Don't rush to buy it. It's temporarily out os stock.

    Specs look good, especially on that FN barrel.

    Apparently they will use the FN made barrels in a few other models too as an option.

    The FSB/GB combo is one of the DDI pattern ones right? Ugly as fuck. Hopefully these fellas can do a more traditional SVD.

    It seems to have a 45 degree gas tube inside. Maybe that's the reason for being "ugly".

    Yeah, the SVD will happen, via FEG.

    Not convinced on the FN barrel. They do make at least two different lines of rifles. Their TDP spec'd ARs and their civilian spec'd ARs. As well as Palmetto having at least 3 tiers of rifles. While I'm sure the barrel isn't going to be trash, being FN doesn't automatically mean anything to me. I'll let others be the beta testers for a while

    Arik: I’ve been meaning to ask, and you’d probably know (or someone here) does KUSA have the TDP from Kalashnikov Concern?
    If someone buys an AK from the US, which of these weird firms is closest?
    I have to be honest with you, I have a few 74’s built from kits and a single 47 that I waited to send to Troy until I left California, so I am in the market for a second 47. Obviously not this monstrosity, but something good.

    no one knows. They haven't said and anything that has been spoken about is pure conjecture or rumor

    I'd bet the OOS status means it isn't available yet. They probably put together the page and just put its status as OOS until then. Many online retailers do that.

    On a purely speculative note, I would take the FN barrel over a Romanian barrel knowing the quality history of products they put out.

    The romanian products are rough, but generally work extremely well. Maybe more research is needed my friend.

    As far as I know no! In fact from what I remember about KUSA was that they were WRC out of Pa. Importing and converting Saigas. Once Saigas ran out they started building and eventually moved to FL and changed names.

    I think they tried to get something going but the Obama administration sanctions would allow it.

    Of course this was all like a decade ago and I could be getting my companies mixed up
