UPDATE: KR-103 rifles are now shipping to your local dealers.



Our new KR-103 Rifle is the semi-automatic civilian version of the 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.

Great care has been taken to design and build the KR-103 according to the original Russian specifications. As a result, the KR-103 duplicates the incredible ruggedness and reliability that have made the AK-47 and AKM platforms the most prolific firearm in the world with over 100 million having been manufactured.
