We are proud to introduce the Circle 10 AK/Manticore Arms ALFAv2 AK!
For nearly a year we have been in discussion with industry professional Larry Vickers about what could be used to modernize a nearly 70 year old rifle design and keep it's reliability in simplicity. With his input we went to the drawing board and came up with a prototype that was used in an AK training class in July of 2015. After receiving praise from Larry and some feedback, here's what we came up with:
Base Rifle - Arsenal SLR-107 (7.62x39mm):
The Arsenal SLR-107
is without a doubt one of the best production AKs available. Built in Bulgaria at the famous Circle 10 (Arsenal) factory, it is chambered in 7.62x39mm, it sports a cold hammer forged barrel, 24mm threaded front sight block, a side folding stock mechanism and a side rail for optics attachments. The rifle is stripped down, dehorned and polished where needed to allow for a nice smooth action.
Manticore Arms Extended Alfa Rail:
Gives the look and feel of a more traditional AK forend while giving the ability to mount Keymod accessories and other optional components. Weighing only 10.3 ounces, it is only a few ounces heavier than polymer and wood forends while allowing for twice the mounting surface and handgrip area. Made from 6061 T6 aluminum, anodized black then cerakoted.
Circle 10 AK/Manticore Arms Flush Fit Side Fold AR15 Adapter:
Developed in conjunction with Manticore Arms, this side adapter fits side folding trunnions with 4.5mm pins, commonly found on side folding Bulgarian AK74s. The tube features a cut out which will allow adjustable AR15 stocks to be folded flat against the side of the receiver, OVER your side mount optics rail. Tube is MILSPEC diameter, and comes with a storage compartment which is sealed by a screw in cap.
Circle 10 AK Extended Charging Handle:
Circle 10 AK Extended Charging Handle for AKs. Allows for easier manipulation of the AK charging handle. Made with 1018 steel, these charging handles are 35 mm in length and weighs 53 grams.
Circle 10 AK SOMAK Rail with Integrated U Notch Peep Sight:
The SOMAK (Scout Optic Mount- AK) bolts into the rear-sight tower, allowing for a stable mount for red dots and optics at the rifle's center of balance. Having 4" of usable rail, the SOMAK accepts most full sized red dots, and is made from 6061 Aluminum with a 4140 Steel nut. A channel is cut for usage as an iron sight. When installed and used as an iron sight, elevation is equivalent to 100m.
Bravo Company Gunfighter Stock (FDE):
Durable polymer snag free design with no sharp edges to get caught or tangled up on the shooter's gear. 2 different ambidextrous sling mounting options including QD swivel sockets. Modular design for future stock options and configurations.
Bravo Company Gunfighter Keymod Vertical Grip SHORT (FDE):
High strength polymer for durability and an aggressive texture for a positive grip. Low profile for increased mobility and decreased snag factor. Can be mounted reversed for user preference. Has storage inside the grip. Tool-less design with spring-loaded clamps for easy installation and removal.
ALG AKT Trigger:
The ALG AK Trigger (AKT) is a single stage trigger designed for the AK47 and AK74 variant platforms. The AKT features a smoother and shorter trigger pull than the stock trigger and is ideal for combat and home defense use. It is machined from triple alloy steel and has a corrosion resistant Manganese Phosphate finish. The AKT features the Lightning Bow, which produces a very comfortable feel to the user over the stock trigger, while enhancing trigger control.
Krebs Custom Enhanced Safety:
Allows for faster and more efficient AK safety manipulation as the shooter's hand never needs to leave his grip. Also has a bolt hold open cut out.
Krebs Custom Trigger Pin Retaining Plate:
Be gone with the shepherd's crook wire! This plate allows for easier disassembly for cleaning and increased durability during high volumes of fire.
Bulgarian 4 Piece Flash Suppressor:
This Bulgarian 4 Piece Flash Suppressor not only does a great job suppressing flash, but it also directs the concussion from firing the rifle towards the front of the shooter so your range buddy or team members don't get hit with the side blast.
US Palm AK Battlegrip (FDE):
The AK Battle Grip is a full sized rifle grip featuring a design that actually drives the users hand up and into the receiver/grip junction. Larger than the standard AK pistol grip for those with medium to larger hands.
The rifle is professionally Cerakoted Flat Dark Earth and comes with a Bulgarian Circle 10 magazine and ships in a hard case. No magazine will be supplied if shipping to a ban state. We will NOT install a bullet button. Does NOT come with Magpul PMAG pictured above. Currently only available in 7.62x39mm, but will open to 5.45x39mm and 5.56x45mm in the future depending on availability.
