Rock River Arms’ New LAR47 Alternative to the AK47—SHOT Show 2014

Guns America

Rock River Arms

There’s been growing interest in shooting the AK 47 due to cheap, plentiful ammunition in 7.62×39 and the availability of millions of cheap mags. The only problem has been that it’s difficult to know what you’re getting with an AK. There are a lot of bad guns out there. If you scour the forums, you’ll learn which are the best, but you’ll still be buying a used gun with questionable accuracy. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a decent gun. If you’re not, you’ll get a headache.

rock river04Rock River Arms has taken two years perfecting its gun built around the AK magazines. You can buy a new, dependable 7.62×39 rifle, built in America on the more accurate AR platform, from a trusted company. The LAR47 weighs 6.4 pounds and has an MSRP of $1,270. It comes with a six-position tactical CAR stock, A2 pistol grip, CAR handguards and 16” chrome lined barrel. Both the lower and upper are forged not stamped like most AKs. There’s even a two-stage trigger. Rock River Arms expects to be shipping the first guns within two weeks, so if you’re interested, get your order in early to reserve your gun.rock river01rock river02

  1. one of my ARs has a Rock River Upper with a Chrome Bolt. It is a really well built system. I like it a lot. That is the one that I chose to leave with only Iron sites. They are a good company.
    I am still looking for a well built upper for 9mm or .45 if anyone knows anything let me know.

  2. Plenty of folks offer a 7.62 AR platform,many had/have feed ramp issues,if solved with rock would be nice yet many still assembling their own to save money/registration with feds ect.That said nice to see hopefully improvements on any tool.
