AK “pistols” of any kind have no practical advantages over a similar AK model with a stock with the possible exception of being smaller and easier to hide.

AK pistols exist only because of a quirk of US law. In the US, a rifle with a stock must have minimum barrel length of 16 inches. If it is shorter than that, it is classified as a Short Barrel Rifle and is very heavily regulated. You have to pay a $200 tax and undergo a long bureaucratic process with lots of paperwork. The law also prohibits attaching stocks to pistols.

There are some AK models, like AK74SU, which have a much shorter barrel.

In order to sell them without restrictions on the US civilian market they are re-made on receivers that exclude the fully-automatic function and have no provision for the stock attachment. Having a short barrel and no stock allows them to be legally classified as pistols.

Obviously, they are too large and heavy to be used like normal pistol for more than a couple of shots, and the absence of a stock makes them unusable in the fashion of a rifle. As a result, the shooter winds up holding it by the grip and forend with no real support. This can be mitigated to a degree with a sling, but it’s still not ideal. Hands with no other support are a poor shooting platform for a rifle-weight gun.

Meanwhile, any AK-style rifle with a stock can be used in normal rifle fashion, allowing for greater accuracy and comfort.

    I have had mine about 2 years. When I first got it, I notice that there were some issues with reliability, with the first 200-400 rounds. After that it has been a flawless rifle, and I’m well into the thousands of rounds through it. Somewhere between 4000-5000. I think the reliability issues came from the sharp angles on the hammer-face. Once I shot it more it smoothed it out a bit, and it stopped catching. I will be buying more from PSA. They made me love the AK design. I have used ak’s before but never owned one until this rifle. I admit I buy a lot of Gucci guns, so I’m really happy PSA has delivered a product that encourages me to give the cheaper brands a chance

    Best American made AK ever. I’ve shot and owned many AK’s over the years, 3 of which were PSA. The PSA 103 is easily the highest quality, nicest shooting, and most accurate American AK I’ve ever shot, and I am glad that I own one. That being said, having failures due to a $10 firing pin, which is an issue with ALL PSA AK’s (i’ve had 2/3 have firing pin issues within 1000 rounds) is unacceptable on a $1000 rifle. This has been a problem for PSA for a few years, and at this point, I’m unsure as to why they haven’t simply decided to outsource the part. On top of this, fixing the problem yourself (which is what I would recommend, given that sending it to PSA just gives you a “new” faulty firing pin, and will take weeks due to shipping) will void your warranty (as I was told by PSA customer support), so either fix this very small issue, or adjust your warranty policy to allow me to fix it for you. Very sad I can’t give what is my second favorite AK I’ve ever owned a 5 star review, but if a beat up wasr doesn’t have firing pin issues, my $1000 basically new rifle shouldn’t either.

    Fantastic but difficult to find side rail scope mount
    Haven’t shot it yet but it feels so solid. Although the side rail mount that I bought didn’t fit. I wish they were more descriptive on what can attach to the side rail because it’s not standard Ak47 …

    Reliable
    I’ve put over 500 rounds of Tula through it and it runs like a champ.

    Just picked mine up and it’s not FN marked. I confirmed what I ordered says it’s a FN barrel. ?????

    This is my first AK47/7.62×39 chambered rifle and so far I’m liking it (I’ve only put 50 rounds thru it). I liked the idea of the FN barrel and compensator and that was a major part of purchasing this rifle over other AK’s. Build quality is good and no complaints there. The grip and stock are very basic and I have upgraded them with Magpul items. The trigger has a lot of gritty slack before firing and DEFINITELY needs upgraded to help with accuracy. To me the trigger is the biggest disappointment compared to price paid. Again, I’ve only put 50 rounds thru it at 45 meters but it put them all in a 12” circle and I think that’s pretty good right out of the box with iron sights. I believe with a better trigger, getting it sighted in at 100 meters and more range time it will be a good, dependable service rifle. Plus, it spits out steel cased ammo without breaking extractors and that may be crucial come 2030.

    Rifle looks and runs great with no malfunctions. My only gripe is that the gas tube lever was very loose.

    Just what I was looking for
    Well made, reliable, fun to shoot! I later mounted a Zhukov stock and Bushnell TRS-25 red dot optic. Very satisfied.
