Century Arms announced the addition of two new AK-47 pistol models to the company's lineup: the C39V2 and the RAS47. Both models contain many of the same features found in the rifle variants, while the overall length has been trimmed down.

"This great addition to our AK line is the result of considerable development that has gone into our government-focused product line," said Jason Karvois, Century Arms' director of sales. "As we were developing our full-auto and short-barreled models for various contracts, the pistol variants were a logical offshoot for the commercial market. Plus, these things are just plain fun to shoot."

Both guns feature a receiver side rail, which are compatible with the company's AK Micro Dot Side Mount. The guns also feature 4150 nitride-treated barrel, RAK-1 enhanced trigger group and multiple quick-detach attachment points for sling mounting. The guns also sport Magpul MOE AK furniture, including a grip and a handguard.

The difference between the two guns is found in the design and construction of the receiver. The C39V2 AK pistol features a milled receiver made from 4140 ordnance-grade steel. The RAS47 AK pistol features a stamped-steel receiver.

The two AK pistols are completely made in the USA. The C39V2 retails at a suggested price of $909.99, while the RAS47 model retails at a suggested price of $749.99.
