New from Kalashnikov USA – The Kommander Rifle -The Firearm Blog


Kalashnikov USA has just announced and made available their new Kommander rifle, a sporterized version of their already popular KR-103 rifle. Evoking the formerly cheap and easy-to-find unconverted Saiga rifle, it’s obviously targeted at states like California where pistol grips and standard capacity magazines are a no-no.

According to the Kalashnikov USA Kommander rifle listing:

Kalashnikov USA is proud to announce our KOMMANDER  7.62x39mm rifle. This is based on our tried and true KR-103 platform but this rifle was inspired by the God father of California himself. This sporter inspired rifle is for those that desire more of a rifle stock opposed to a pistol grip firearm. This firearm  comes with a threaded muzzle nut and 2 -30 round magazines.

The authenticity and design of the Russian AK103 comes in KR-103 with the reliability of K-USA. 100% made in the US, the KR-103 is a gas-operated semi-automatic rifle with a 16.33″ black  barrel and a forged 5.5mm trunnion. It is chambered in 7.62×39mm and feeds on a 30 round magazine. The KR-103 comes with a cleaning rod, side optic rail, and a forged carrier.

The KOMMANDER is athletically designed to satisfy all American AK enthusiasts. It is one of the most dependable rifles on the market for any occasion:

  • The innovative and reliable technology of Kalashnikov USA™ makes it much lighter, robust, and advanced than the earlier AKs. Proudly designed and made in the USA.
  • The KOMMANDER uses the renowned 7.62×39mm cartridges that contribute to the reliability of the AK rifles.
  • The KOMMANDER is compatible with a wide range of AKM and AK-74 rifle accessories and is highly customizable.
