PSA AKV....anyone?

PSA is in the process of doing a +15 extension for their magazine to get it up to 50 rounds.......HOPEFULLY, they will be stackable so you can get 65  :) Of course I already have tons of Scorpion mags and have a few with the TACCOM coupler to get 50+ rounds, so I personally am set (for now).

 

Anyways.......I did take the AKV to the Hornady Zombie match and it worked flawlessly!! Got home and finished up tot he build today: Zhukov-U forearm, K2 grip, Luth-AR stock, TACCOM mid brake barrel extension, ALG trigger, Bushnell Lil Pris and a left hand charge handle......as well as a new yet to be released recoil cushion has made this AKV a formidable choice of weapon for USPSA PCC competition!!!....And yes, it has been drop dead reliable with the Scorpion magazines too. I'll be switching the optics over to a Holosun as well as cutting off the front sight (it's obnoxious). Comes in at just under 8#......would be less if I swapped out the stock for something somewhat lighter. Recoil is light and comes back stupid flat.....Overall, impressed with the performance.

Tim, What size mid-brake extension are you running (5.5", 6")? 

Also, any eta on the recoil cushion? 

 

I'm in the market for a backup PCC, and may run an AKV or a Ruger PC. 

Thanks

I've been checking out the recoil cushion from Taccom and it does work in the pistol.  So far I've ran it without the travel limiter block (original) and zero issue.  Will test it with the limiter block in place next.

Would the CMC AK trigger work in this?

What are the aftermarket options for thumb safeties?

Anymore going on with the AK-V? I keep looking at it, trying to resist. It’s been in and out f my cart several times today.

Same here. Placed my order for the same. I already have the mag release.

Me too.  I accidentally ordered an extra bolt release because I didn't notice it came with the magwell until after I placed order. Maybe I'll just return it, it's only 20 bucks.

Yes I did! Got a black MOE pistol. ATF just emailed me that my Form 1 is approved, so going to get it engraved and pick up a CTR stock. I got the ALG trigger from you, just haven’t put it in yet. I saw all the goodies are available now at PSA. Look great!

Probably not an AKV.....probably the other variant (which is trash). I am impressed with how reliable this is and how soft it shoots. It really needs a trigger though, which is coming.

Buddy has one. The factory trigger is ABYSMAL. But with an ALG and a few other mods...

I actually like the factory trigger on the AK-V, it's not heavy but it does have a longer 'throw' and reset.  No real wall.  It's fun on plates and steel.  But for gaming and really fast double-taps, yeah it probably needs the ALG trigger which I have but haven't replaced yet.
