Garand Thumb goes over this VITYAZ. Russia's MP5. Pretty bad ass.

If someone could figure out which of this >>>>v=rHN5KSLcS2M&t=1025s to put between the YT brackets, that would be swell. I tried deciphering all combinations but couldn't get it. Sometimes there's extra bits and pieces in it and this seems to have them.

Meanwhile, here's the full link.

I thought all things manufactured from Russia are banned for import entirely. It would be almost impossible to get one of those although they are awesome!

This is actually a KALASHNIKOV USA KP-9. From what I have read, it is a USA made, pretty close copy of the Russian Vityaz.

Interesting and the same price of the PSA no less. I doubt it's on Maryland's approved list though....

Oh wait I see it is on the roster! It's approved.
Now the question is can you actually find and buy one?

KP-9 KP-9 (SKU #), N/A 9 mm

It's funny to see this thread come back up. I never got the AK-V and got the KP-9 instead, I had to submit it to the roster way back with the help of my FFL. I ended up getting the first one in MD at least. I highly recommend the KP-9 over the AK-V.

For the reasons being:
It's a 1:1 clone of the Russian Vityaz based on the actual TDPs
It has an out of battery safety
It has a 5.5mm folding rear trunnion which adds a bit of value, especially if you decide to add Zenitco parts or other mods.
Softer recoiling than the AK-V and Scorpion



Here it is running with a tri-lugged Form 1 suppressor with 5 rounds of supers and subs

I keep going back and forth on the PSA AK-V and the KP-9.

The KP-9 has had better all around reviews and is the closer Russian Vityaz clone.

But, the KP-9 uses proprietary magazines and the AK-V uses Scorpion mags.

That is hard to overlook. There are multiple mag manufactures plus drums etc. for the scorpion style. I can't see running out of those. Scorpion magazines have had issues from some manufactures but the magazine quality will improve with aftermarket companies.

My point is that Scorpion magazines will likely be easy to get for a long time, especially due to many firearms are using them.

I don't know. Just thinking out loud. I am leaning toward the KP-9 right now. It's not super high on my priorities at this point. Lot's of them are still available on GB for list price.

I built this little 9mm a few years back for just in case I got into a firefight in a phone booth.

It's a PAK-9 with a few upgrades. It takes Glock magazines.
