Kolarms was established in 2008 refurbishing weapons for the Film making industry and civilian collectors. Their business focused on upgrading weapons from the USSR, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria or former Yugoslavia. As the demand for their work grew they are now producing several lines of new firearms including the AK47 / AKM patterns rifles.
Kolarms is now offering a high quality AK47/ AKM kit with all new parts so you can build your favorite rifle at home. This kit provides you with most of the parts needed to build your new rifle with all NEW parts. You will need the following to finish the project: Gas piston rivet, 7mm barrel pin, AK47 Stamped receiver, Barrel & Magazine.
These kits are great for your next home build or store these for back up parts for your existing collection of AK based firearms. The KAM -17 parts a grey phosphate finished & very neatly packaged, great for long term storage. Stock up now for a Rainy Day as the new administration may shut down AK47 Kit imports in the near future and surplus kits are drying up.
Haven't had time to put it together and I still need to buy a barrel, but this looks like a great kit for anyone wanting to build a modern/tactical AK. Everything looks to be good quality. Shipping and processing order was quick. Would be glad to do business or buy another one.
Heard people say that the parts are cast, too my eye and a few others I have asked. I can say it is forged! To clear that up ASAP. Will say some parts are weak and are CAST, not all. As well I’m kinda upset I got the GEN 1 kit instead of the 2 as stated. Overall tho I am very satisfied for what it is and the price! Maybe $30-$40 cheaper.
This kit is fun and easy to build. The only extra tool that I needed to purchase was a 25/64 reamer to install the front sight barrel. Beautiful and fun to shoot kit when done.
I have built one of these kits before without the modifications that AoA makes and many of the critical parts are so inexplicably off of AKM specs that it's basically impossible to assemble this kit with an AKM receiver and barrel without extensive modifications. AoA has not only addressed the problems in their description, such as reaming out the trunnion and drilling the gas block, they also give you extra, standard AKM parts of their own for all of the other weird out of spec parts such as the selector stop plate. The have clearly actually built these kits and know what it takes to make them work, and I would under no means have purchased one again if it wasn't for the extra work they put into them.
Great looking parts kit. Very complete for a brand new kit. Only criticism is that some of the new components don't have dimples to locate holes for drilling.
No complaints about the shipping or customer service you guys are spot on and doing a great job my only complaint is with the kit itself some of the parts are poor quality and damaged I'll definitely have to replace some of them but other than those few parts it's a great overall kit and I'm excited to start building.
Very nice kit and all the parts seem well made. I haven't checked tolerances, but good manufacturing and tooling.
Brand new kit. Quality parts. One of the better ones out there. To bad there all sold out.
Gun looks new, but I wouldn't buy another one, nothing wrong, just not for me
