The Rifle that Changed the World. The AK-47 rifle was invented by legendary Soviet weapons designer Mikhail Kalashnikov. Completed in 1947 and adopted into Soviet military service in 1949 as the "7.62mm Kalashnikov assault rifle" (or "AK"), the design was neither pioneering nor altogether new technology.

Rather, the AK-47 was a hybrid rifle based on several other successful designs. It utilized the trigger mechanism, double locking lugs and unlocking raceway of the U.S. M1 Garand, the safety of the John Browning designed Remington Model 8 with the gas system and intermediate size cartridge of the German Sturmgewehr 44.

Century International Arms introduced the RAS47 and is a 100% American made AK-47 rifle. It has no imported parts and is equipped with a thick 1.6mm stamped steel receiver. It also has a much thicker, which will require filing with a dremel tool when adding custom accessories such as a quad rail forend. Suffice it to say, however, the rifle is very durable and easily passed the 15,000 round mil-spec qualifications test.

Enhancements include an oversized T shaped magazine catch, compatibility with AKM furniture, a bolt hold open safety, an enhanced dust cover and standard AK-47 sights. The Century Arms RAS-47 is coated with a durable corrosion resistant black nitride finish and uses an enhanced trigger group. It is equipped with a high quality 4150 steel 16.1- inch barrel by ESS with a concentric left hand 14x1 metric thread and a standard AKM slant break for taming recoil.

While not guaranteed, Century Arms maintains that the RAS47 rifle is capable of 1.5" M.O.A. accuracy. The trigger is the newly redesigned "Red Army Standard" by Century Arms and is single stage with a smooth, crisp pull. A dehorned magazine well has no sharp edges that are common on many stamped rifles and magazines fit tight-- without the wobble common to other AK-47's on the market.

At the heart of the design is its Kalashnikov long stroke gas piston system. A gas port in the barrel, located at the 45-degree-angled gas block roughly 2 inches forward of the handguard, taps gas off the bore when a cartridge is fired.

This gas impacts against the forward face of a large gas piston, which is affixed directly to the bolt carrier assembly. As a result, the force of the gas pushes back this large, heavy chunk of steel to rotate and unlock the dual-lugged bolt from its locking recesses to cycle the action.

The bolt carrier is a one-piece unit with lightning cuts to reduce weight. A fixed cam on the bolt rides in a kidney-shaped groove in the underside of the carrier that rotates the bolt in and out of battery. Two horizontally opposed lugs on the bolt body lock up in corresponding locking recesses in a barrel block that is housed in the stamped steel receiver.

The bolt has Melonited for extreme durability and features a deeply recessed face and a massive claw extractor, and a fixed-blade ejector is welded to the left-hand wall of the receiver. The recoil spring is conventionally located behind the bolt carrier. Horizontal guide rails welded to the receiver guide the travel of the bolt assembly.

Along with its generous clearance between moving parts and tapered cartridge case, the gun has been engineered to endure large amounts of fouling and brutal punishment while continuing to cycling consistently and reliably. All this comes at a price as the AK-47 is not renown for it's precision.

All springs are high grade Wolff throughout the rifle. The standard AKM hooded post front sight is paired with a notched rear tangent sight graduated from 100 to 1,000 meters. For repair, the rifle is backed by a 1- year warranty. Overall, the Century Arms RAS-47 is an affordable, well built AK-47 style rifle designed for year of reliable service.
