AK AK-P AK-V CAI NAK9X pistol PSA

PSA AK-P is on the way!

Today I ordered a red PSA AK-P with an SBA4 brace.  This is an AK pistol chambered in 7.62×39.  This will be the first AK I bought that has actual wood.  I was going to get a Magpul version but was torn on what color of polymer to get.  Then I saw that they had red wood and the red is deep in color.

I wanted to get an AK pistol before they were banned/restricted. (Sorry, I’m not interested in AR pistols at this time, although that may change; at one point, I wasn’t interested in 1911 nor AKs.)

I’m not sure when this will be arriving, as I ordered it the Wednesday (night) before Labor Day.  It may arrive this coming Tuesday or Wednesday.

As well, I tried to order a PSA AK-V (9mm AK pistol), but I spent too long trying to decide between it and the Century Arms NAK9X…I tried to add the AK-V to the shopping cart and found that someone already bought it…it was the last one.  :/  So, either I wait for more to be available or I get the NAK9X.  I wanted the PSA due to it’s warranty, but they are very similar.  I believe the PSA is cleaner.  Neither have been heavily reviewed.  I can actually wait on this purchase.  Maybe I can find something cheaper than these two, like a decent Draco with a tube brace.

UPDATE – 9/2:  Well, it actually shipped today (9/2/19), although UPS says it’s not shipped yet — only the shipping label has been created.  It’ll actually ship tomorrow, probably (9/3/19).  This is so that people have an idea of how fast PSA ships firearms.  I ordered the night of 8/28.  That was a Wednesday night.  It is currently Monday (Labor Day).

UPDATE 2 – 9/3:  And, it really shipped today; so sayeth UPS.  It’ll be here on Thursday (9/5).

UPDATE 3 – 9/7:  It is here (I picked it up yesterday) —

.308 7.62 x 51 CAI Century Arms CETME G3 HK NATO rifle

CETME (G3) Long Gun?

Someone posted on a Facebook group a new acquisition of his:  a CETME .308 made by Century Arms International.  Apparently, it’s essentially an HK G3 (the HK G3 is actually a clone of the original Spanish-made CETME .308 rifle).

This is news to me, as I thought these guns were expensive, yet CAI-made versions can be had for around $600-800.  Original Spanish-made CETME .308s apparently can’t accept full-power NATO .308 rounds, but CAI versions can.

I just might add this rifle to my wish list.  I’d want one with wooden furniture and several mags (although I might be able to get decently priced mags from CAI).  A rail and/or scope might be nice, as well, but I’d be just as happy without either of those.  I’d have to research ammo prices for 7.62 x 51 NATO and research YouTube videos for any potential issues/gotchas.

This is the first long gun I’ve been thoroughly attracted to (minus an M4).

Beautiful wood on this CETME!
Check out the collapsible stock!


UPDATE:

A quick check shows that I can get 240 rounds of 146-grain 7.62 x 51 for $139 from J&G.

20-round mags can also be had for less than $7 (!!)

This example of CETME looks like a good purchase candidate!

CAI Facebook Post on the TP9v2

Look at this!

Now shipping TP9v2’s!

Well, they aren’t telling me anything I haven’t already published in recent postings of this particular gun, but the fact that they’re advertising it is pretty cool (I didn’t see them doing that with the other TP-9s).

Oh, and here’s another video of the gun, this one by Hank Strange (and quite a bit longer than James Yeager’s).
