Here is what's going on. The AK is being developed by Jim Weishuhn who owns Erie Ordnance Depot out of Oak Harbor, Ohio. Eagle106 is helping him with developing the proprietary parts for the AK.
http://shop.erieordnancedepot.com/

The AK that you see in the pictures is a concept design made from a modified AK74 bolt and a PPSH barrel. The thing runs well and is a blast to shoot. It however does have a few issues. The thing runs hard. It has beaten up a rear trunnion already from the bolt slamming so hard and it is wearing out the holes in the trigger pins. They have added a buffer and are hoping that a heavier bolt and maybe a heavier spring will help with this. All in all these are minor issues which should be solved soon.

Now about the purchasing the gun. They pretty much have the design down pat but are having trouble finding people willing to make the parts. Other than that the rifle should be on the market very soon.

If, however you are very desperate for an AK in the inexpensive and powerful 7.62x25 cartridge Jim is willing to make some rifles with modified AK74 bolts for you. Doing so will really help with getting some money to get the project off the ground. The upside to being the "guinea pig" per-se is that the rifle can be pretty much customized to whatever you want. Folding stock, vertical grip, fake can, Duracote, you name it he can do it for you and make your rifle to order. If you are interested please give Jim a call at 567-262-3601.

Also, in June Jim will get his SOT so you NFA boys can order your AK ala SBR if you want.

That thing is a sexy bitch.

BTW, is that a gas driven system or a blowback?

this should have been done years ago.

I'd prefer it all in black and without that fore thumb thing, but nonetheless, I'm interested.

We are tossing around a gas operated version. The blowback prototypes throw brass over 30 feet.

Any word on what kind of price this will run?
Does it use the PPSH stick mags?

That was the first time it had been fired that weekend, we think it was excess WD40 burning off. Who knows.

What mag does it use? PPs-43?
I don't care if 5.45x39 is corrosive, that is why they invented water. I am not paying $350.00 for 5.56!

It uses PPSH mags. We don't know of a price yet but ballpark it around $700 to $800 dollars.

The magazines upon closer examination appear to be from the PPs-43, NOT the PPsH-41. Big difference. They are not interchangeable.

Woah woah woah woah... Is the 700 - 800 to buy one outright or is that to convert an already existing rifle?

Sounds too good to be true!

Really nice looking build.

You could eliminate the problems from battering the action if you went gas operated (I'm assuming it's blowback operated now).

I was going to ask if it was blow-back.


I see your 7.62 TOK AK and raise you a 7.62 Tok AR.

From the looks of it, that is the price of the whole rifle.

Do you have one? I had to add a 9mm ejection port cover and deflector to mine to make it south paw friendly. After tweaking the magazines a bit it seems to run fine.

Hell you can't get a AKS-74u kit right now for that price.... Thats not including compliance parts, finish, building, rivets and Receiver. I'm very curious about the gas operating system as well


I love this rifle, but damn now i know how Traditionalist feel

grats on your success!!!

What he said.

Do very want.

41 or 43 mags? The locking tab in the video looks like a 43.
