Palmetto State Armory (PSA) recently announced the release of its newest AK-based firearm, the AK-V pistol. Moreover, chambered in 9mm, the AK-V utilizes CZ Scorpion-style magazines.

The PSA AK-V is modeled after a gun designed for Russian Special Forces, according to Palmetto State Armory. The now-disbanded unit sought a compact sub-gun for operational use.

The AK-V is designed to run with a range of ammunition, both suppressed and unsuppressed. Also, the pistol utilizes a blowback operating system and features a last round hold open. Along with CZ Scorpion mags, the pistol also runs with PSA’s own 35-round mag that retails for $19.99.

The controls and pistol frame should be familiar to AK users. However, PSA included upgrades such as rail attachments and an SB Tactical SBA3 Brace.

The SBA3 stock provides five-position adjustability. Also, the unit includes 7075 mil-spec carbine receiver extension, as well as an integral, ambidextrous QD sling socket. Moreover, the SBAE meets all ATF qualifications for a pistol brace.
