Born overseas and perfected in the USA, the Red Army Standard 47 is a 100% American made stamped AK. Every RAS47 features include a chrome-moly 4150 nitride treated barrel, a 1/16" stamped 4140 steel nitride-treated receiver, a T-shaped magazine catch, a slant muzzle brake, and standard AK sights. The updated version adds the first AK side scope rail mount to offer a return to zero capability. With four times clamping improvement over traditional side scope rail mounts, it provides improved sight acquisition for follow-up shots. The 16.5" barrel has a 1 in 10" twist and a concentric LH 14x1 metric thread for a variety of muzzle attachments. The bolt carrier tail is heat treated to ensure maximum performance and life. Bolt hold-open notch on the safety selector. RAK-1 enhanced trigger group. Accepts all standard AK mags and AKM furniture.
