Florida-based Kalashnikov USA announced this week they are bringing several new products to SHOT Show including the KR-103.
While not a lot of details were pushed out at first, saving the full release for next week, we can confirm the 7.62x39mm KR-103 is 100 percent U.S.-made and will have 5.5mm forged trunnions. Further, it will be compatible with most AKM and AK74 parts and accessories. Initial pictures hint at a 16-inch barrel and black synthetic furniture. KUSA will also be introducing a number of new U.S.-made parts for AKM builds, sure to be a plus for those with 922 on their mind.

The news came on the heels of KUSA Vice President Bill Gentry posting images of the new gun, then under wraps, on his social media feed three weeks ago. “You all have no idea how much work went into this moment happening!!!” wrote Gentry, “A new gun baby has been born.”
