The Kalashnikov USA™ Komrad™ is a non-NFA item – you can purchase it from your local Federal Firearms Dealer after completing the standard Form 4473.* This compact, 12 gauge semi-automatic, smoothbore firearm is based on the Russian Saiga series. However, it is made here in the United States by American workers using US manufactured components and raw materials.
The Komrad™ has a barrel length of 12.5”. The overall length (OAL) of the Kalashnikov Komrad is 31.5” with the pistol brace fully extended and 29.25” when collapsed. It weighs 7.85 lbs.
The Komrad™ accepts standard 12 gauge 2 3/4” and 3” magnum shells. The gun’s abbreviated barrel works best with loads exceeding 1340 fps. It utilizes the long-stroke gas system of Mikhail Kalashnikov’s famous AK-47 rifle but with an innovative and adjustable gas system that allows custom tuning based on the ammunition being used. The result is a reliable and smooth shooting firearm with a short length and excellent handling characteristics.
The Komrad™ comes with an SB Tactical pistol brace, adjustable pistol grip, tri-rail forend, vertical forward grip, standard side-mounted optics rail and a threaded muzzle for use with external choke tubes, muzzle brakes or flash suppressors. The Komrad has a front bead sight coupled with a rear notch.
The Komrad™ is shipped standard with two 5 round magazines. It also accepts our 10 round magazines as well as most Saiga accessories.
