(sponsored post) Like AK’s? Of course you! They’re hardy as heck and fire a big boy bullet. While there’s something to said for the imported Kalashnikov versions, there’s a lot more to be said for Canik USA’s 100 percent American AK’s. Words like “accurate” and “excellent trigger” spring to mind. But don’t take our word for it. Click here to buy your tickets to the 2016 Texas Firearms Festival (at Best of the West Shooting Sports in Liberty Hill October 14 – 16 ) and come and shoot it! By “it” we mean the entire RAS47 and C39V2 lineups, all equipped with . . .

– Chrome moly 4150 nitride treated barrel (1:10 twist, concentric LH 14×1 metric thread for a variety of muzzle attachments)
– 1/16″ stamped 4140 steel nitride treated receiver
– RAK-1 Enhanced Trigger Group
– Larger T shaped magazine catch
– Compatibility with AKM furniture
– Retaining plate
– Standard AKM sights
– Bolt hold-open notch on the safety selector
– Heat treated Bolt carrier tail (to ensure maximum performance and life)

Not to mention Canik’s first AK side scope rail mount, offering a return to zero capability, four times clamping improvement over traditional side scope rail mounts and improves sight acquisition for follow-up shots.


And if that’s not enough to scratch the itch, Century Arms will be bringing the TTAG-reviewed C308 rifle. Also available for serious trigger time: Canik’s TP9SF and TP9 SFX pistols.

There’s a little over two weeks before the 2016 Texas Firearms Festival opens its door to thousands of shooters and their families. Tickets are strictly limited to minimize line length. It’s time to click here and buy your tickets to the world’s largest shoot – shop – buy firearms events. Or as we say in Russia, it’s time for tickets to buy you!

  1. Forgot to add:

    – Cast Trunnion!

    (sorry, couldn’t help myself. At least I didn’t use any profanity ColtGuy)

  2. They wouldn’t have heat treated the bolt carrier tail specifically if the things people said about the RAS47 were not true. They honestly should give people the option of sending back their bolt carriers.

  3. Like AK’s? Of course you!

    Eh, no, not really. I mean, I get why they have a fan base. They’re reliable as a rock, the ammo is cheap, and under 300 meters, they pack a punch.

    I could say all the same things about a SKS, and I don’t have one of those either.

    There’s something about the ComBlock arms that, when I pick them up, I have to resist the burning desire to open them up, take some measurements, throw away the original and make them competently.

    When I look at a Mauser K98 made in the closing days of the war, by slave labor even, I see better workmanship than much of the ComBlock stuff, esp. the ChiCom stuff. The early Russian examples of their arms are good workmanship, but as time goes on, the workmanship seems to suffer during this, that or some other Five Year Plan.

    • My matching 1938 Tula Mosin needed a new bolt head out of the box because Ivan cut the face improperly, would not close on a round. My 1944 Russian capture K98k made from mixed up parts bins shoots 2 and 1/2″ groups all day long. Your point on the superiority of western engineering is beyond valid.

    • ” I have to resist the burning desire to open them up, take some measurements, throw away the original and make them competently.”
      Do not resist this, it is the proper thing to do.
