“The addition of the Shockwave Blade offers a very handy and accurate pistol with the reliability and durability you would expect from an AK,” Century Arms Director of Sales Jason Karvois said.
The Shockwave Blade pistol-stabilizing brace used in the unique package is constructed from glass-reinforced polymer for added durability and attaches to the Century Arms C39v2 through the use of Century's innovative buffer-tube mounting adapter. This adapter attaches directly to the rear of the AK pistol's receiver, differentiating it from other designs in the market. For consumers looking to modify their already-owned AK pistols, the mounting adapter can be purchased from Century Arms as a separate component later in 2018.
The Century Arms C39v2 is built on a solid receiver milled from 4140 steel, which is then mated to a 10.6-inch barrel machined from 4150 chrome-moly steel and given a 1:10-inch rate of twist. The barrel is then treated with a nitride finish to enhance lubricity and corrosion resistance. Other features include a threaded muzzle with 14x1 mm standard metric threads compatible with aftermarket muzzle accessories and sound suppressors.
One of the stand-out features on the C39v2 is the company's improved side-scope rail. Century Arms claims that this is the first AK scope-rail mount to offer a reliable return to zero and provides more than four times the security and clamping power versus traditional AK side-rail mounts. The pistol is also equipped with an improved RAK-1 trigger group and features a T-shaped magazine catch, bolt-hold open notch and ambidextrous quick-detach sling-mounting points.
Each Century Arms C39v2 Blade AK pistol is equipped with a Magpul MOE AK pistol grip and handguard, and the gun is compatible with all aftermarket AKM furniture. Each pistol ships with a single 30-round magazine, and the suggested retail price on the gun is $949.99.
