These look great, lots of hard work into designing them . I'll wait until the price drops though or when something like the VEPR 9 materializes some day. Uses a Colt-9mm AR mag. Looks like they are running between $1589 and $1779:


AKX-9 Series of semi automatic 9mm firearms was developed by Definitive Arms to fill the niche in the market for a AK 9 millimeter rifle or pistol. Unlike other attempts to build a 9mm AK, the AKX-9 is a blue print designed gun from the ground up as a dedicated 9mm firearm. All major components are US made meaning the AKX-9 is not cobbled together using surplus parts kits. The AKX-9 series has been extensively tested over the course of 8 months to insure the highest quality & reliability of the weapon utilizing a wide variety of 9mm ammunition. The Firearms are packed full of shooter friendly features like a last round bolt hold open, left side bolt release, drop-free magazines and AR15 type magazine release. The firearm utilizes the Colt style stick mags that are affordable and readily available for less than $20.00. The The AKX-9 barrel is 11.125 inches long with a 1:10 twist and sports a 1/2 x 28 threaded for ease of adding a suppressor or mounting other common 1/2x28 accessories such as flash suppressors. All models of the AKX-9 are easily convertible to being an SBR once a Form 1 is obtained.

The Custom AKX-9 barrel has a full auto tapered chamber, so it will distort brass slightly, but improves reliability, So in true AK fashion it's designed around functioning.The Dedicated AKX Bolt is hardened to optimum hardness per similar specs on Russian AK bolts to insure extreme durability. The buffer weight, pivot/hinge point, and bolt travel distance were carefully tuned for the best balance of optimum reliability and management of recoil for faster follow up shots. The design of the gun was fine tuned to minimize recoil , increase accuracy and work with a wide variety of ammunition on the market. The AKX provides shooters a great combination of features, accuracy and reliability for Home Defense, Tactical or Sporting applications.

Definitive Arms is well known for their high quality builds and is regarded as one of the Top 3 Custom AK Builders in the US. Prior to the AKX-9 they pioneered Mag Well conversions for the Russian VEPR and Saiga series of rifles in .223 & .308 . Based out of Florida the Definitive Arms team focuses on Innovative Enhancements to the AK platform of firearms. They do not crank out mass produced guns. Each gun is hand built one at a time to insure a straight & smooth weapon and they stand behind the products they build.

I wonder why they kept the full length handguard on the pistol version.
The only thing I can think of is the sights and not wanting to make a "Krink" version. I dont know.

Im just not into these for some reason though.

All of the weight and none of the stopping power. Just how I like to roll. :wink:

Not AK enough for me. Its just a blow back 9mm that looks like an ak. I would like it alot more if they cut of the front of the reciever instead of just setting the barrel so far back. Still its a cool idea, im sure someone will buy it.

Other than the cool AK factor and it really doesn't push my buttons that much, I think I'll just stick with me Hi-Point 9 and 40 S&W rifles. At sub $400, and closer to $300, they are as functional as anything I've fired. They remind me of the rifles carried in the "Planet of the Apes" series, the original, but shoot just fine. With a scope on one, they are actually pretty accurate at even 100 yds. Might not dent a pie plate at that distance, ;);), but not bad IMHO.
