MAKE THE RANGE YOUR PLAYGROUND
The Kalashnikov USA™ KP-9 is our civilian legal, 9mm semi-auto only AK style pistol based upon the Russian Vityaz submachine gun. Proudly made in the U.S.A., the KP-9 offers a variety of options for the Vityaz enthusiast. With its hinge block and quick detach mount at the rear of the receiver, the KP-9 comes ready for conversion into a short-barreled rifle (SBR) under the provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934.*
The KP-9 pistol features a closed bolt blowback design that incorporates an out-of-battery safety mechanism so the gun cannot fire unless the bolt is fully closed.
The KP-9 also features feed ramps that are specially designed to reliably chamber jacketed hollow point bullets.
This semi-auto pistol accepts 30-round and 10-round Kalashnikov USA™ magazines. The steel-lined polymer magazines feature a double-column, double-feed design inspired by the battle-proven magazines used in the PPS-43 submachine gun.
The KP-9’s hinged top cover has an attached Picatinny rail. The muzzle features 1/2 inch x 28 suppressor-ready muzzle threads (and a shoulder) making it compatible with most US muzzle devices and suppressors. It comes from the factory with a flash suppressor installed.
*You can enjoy shooting your KP-9 in pistol configuration while awaiting approval from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to convert it into a short-barreled rifle (SBR). The KP-9 can also be fitted with a pistol brace but such stabilizing devices are currently under regulatory review by ATF. Before installing any buttstock, stabilizing device, vertical foregrip or other control accessory, please consult with a competent authority in your jurisdiction to ensure compliance with all current firearms laws and regulations. Mere possession of these parts–before proper regulatory approval—can be a violation of law.
THE 9MM AK PLATFORM PISTOL
Chambered in the low recoiling and widely popular 9mm pistol caliber, the Kalashnikov USA™ KP-9 is inexpensive to shoot and very controllable. With a wide variety of accessories–and parts compatibility with many AKs–it can be customized to your own specifications.
