The Kalashnikov USA™ KR-9 is an American made 9mm semi-automatic rifle based on the Russian Vityaz submachine gun which has proven very popular with Russian law enforcement and specialized military units. The KR-9 has a 16.25” barrel and accepts 30-round and 10-round Kalashnikov USA™ magazines. The steel lined polymer magazines feature a double-column, double-feed design inspired by the battle proven magazines used in the PPS-43 submachine gun.
The KR-9 comes with a skeletonized Vityaz triangle style side folding stock and a hinged top cover with attached Picatinny rail. The muzzle features 1/2 inch x 28 suppressor-ready muzzle threads (and a shoulder) making it compatible with most US muzzle devices and suppressors. It comes from the factory with a flash suppressor installed.
The KR-9 features a closed bolt blowback design that incorporates an out-of-battery safety mechanism so the gun cannot fire unless the bolt is fully closed. The KR-9 also features feed ramps that are specially designed to reliably chamber jacketed hollow point bullets.
The operating mechanism for the low recoiling 9mm pistol cartridge dispenses with the gas system required for the 7.62 and 5.45 millimeter cartridges used in the AK-47, AKM and AK-74 rifles. However, it still maintains the high degree of reliability that have made the Kalashnikov series of firearms the most prolific, longest lasting guns the world has ever seen. Every KR-9 is proof tested in our indoor range to ensure adequate safety and functioning before leaving the factory.
Massachusetts residents will receive two pinned 10rd magazines and a pinned stock.
