Century Arms has revealed it is bringing a limited run of WASR Underfolder AK, or WASR UF, 7.62x39mm rifles into the country for U.S. citizens.

Originally built by state-owned defense company Romarm out of its Cugir factory in Romania, these new Century Arms WASR UF models resemble the Romanian Model 63 and 65 underfolders, but without the front vertical grip. The rifle sports a folding stock that, when collapsed, results in an overall length of just 25.5 inches, making this a good compact option for situations where that need should arise. With the stock extended, the OAL jumps to 35 1/4 inches.

The WASR UF also features a 16.5-inch hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel; forged barrel trunion; 14×1 threaded LH barrel; overall weight of 7.15 pounds; and ships with one 30-round magazine.

“The WASR has always been a popular model for Century. We are constantly receiving requests for additional configurations and the underfolder allows us to provide a fun, compact option for AK and WASR enthusiasts,” Jason Karvois, Century’s sales director, said in a presser.

Atlantic Firearms is currently offering the first batch of Century’s WASR Underfolder rifles. It is listed on their site at $739.
