The New PSA AK-47 Side Folder Makes Us Moist

The PSA AK-47 side folder should turn a lot of heads, especially since the rifle is priced at a mere $699.99. Like the rest of the GF3 PSAK-47 rifles, the new side folder will sport the same forged trunions that have made the bargain-priced rifles gain some popularity quickly.

Looking at the specs on the PSA AK-47 side folder, it looks like it is pretty comparable to the Arsenal SLR 107 FR I used in the Xtech Tactical MAG47 review a while back.

  • Gas Nitride 4150 steel treated barrel
  • Stamped steel receiver
  • Hammer Forged Front Trunnion
  • Hammer Forged Bolt
  • Hammer Forged Carrier
  • Side Scope Mount
  • 7.62x39 Caliber
  • 1 in 9.5" Twist

 **Cleaning Rod Not Included

I really hope PSA offers the side folder in the pistol variant with the super cool arm brace they showed me last year during a visit to their facility.

Like I mentioned earlier, the PSA AK-47 side folder will carry an MSRP of $699.99, the same price as the non-folding PSAK-47 Classic rifles. Find more information on the Palmetto State Armory website or on the PSAK-47 side folder product page.
