The famous Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifles have been made in frigid Moscow since their inception 69 years ago. Soon, they'll be made in sunny Florida, too.

Kalashnikov USA has been approved by the city of Pompano Beach to assemble guns there.

  2. I've got a Saiga AK variant in 5.56 and an AR15. I think I like the Saiga better except for the weight. Glad to know
    they are making them here now. The Saiga can't be imported anymore (I think) CH

    1. Thanks and I have the Saiga 12. I put on a TAPCO stock on it so it would fit into my gun case and boy, one 10 round mag is about all you want to endure. :)

  3. Guns of the South coming true !
