If anybody runs into an AR with a strange chrome lined SKS barrel on it let me know.
I was building x39 ARs in the late 80's. using virgin SKS barrels fitted to AR barrel extensions.
They were on E.A. lowers which was not the later Eagle Arms stuff.
I used Colt 223 bolts I opened up on lathe, heavy buffers I made and .100" gas ports.
Mags were steel ARs cut and welded to cutoff AK mags.
Only made 8 - Barrels are marked
Guys at Olympic Arms I was conferencing with, during the development came out with a kit
and seriously undercut me so I dropped the project and moved on.
Sold them all and would kind of like to find one of them to put back into my collection.

Does anyone have any experience in using the PSA KS-47? I know that the uppers and lowers are proprietary, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about their reliability with any steel or brass cased ammo. Much lighter than the CMMG mutant and, maybe their top selling point, they take AK mags.
