    It's the solution I have always wanted. A polymer handguard that extends fully, has attachment points & that works with the ultimak.

    Is there anything to be said about the news/rumor that Kalashnikov is opening up a US factory?

    Yep. I've got a suppressed 12.5" 5.56 AK that I can't wait to slap this on.

    I heard the same thing. Don't have a link though.

    I don't get these statements:
    Russian guns stay in Russia. Russian tooling stays in Russia. Russian ideas and concepts stay in Russia. So the only possibility is for them to be reverse-engineered here, unless RWC got hold of that information antes de the sanctions declaration.
    In the long term, they might build a better and more sustainable business by taking care to make premium AKs with processes as near to the Russian firm as they can reasonably replicate
    Forgive me if I'm believing too much lore, but I thought one of the reasons for the AK's global ubiquity is how easy the things are to make. While I understand that some are made a lot better than others, I don't understand why anyone in the US would have to reverse-engineer anything... or why there is any limit as to how well the US can "reasonably replicate" the Russian methods of manufacturing.

    Doesn't every country with hand tools know how to make an AK? With more than 60 years of history, what is there to reverse-engineer?
