We removed the gas components of the AK and replaced them with a bolt carrier that carries extra weight in place of the AK’s standard gas piston. The added mass forward of the bolt is reminiscent of the telescoping design used in the Uzi and helps keep the pistol compact. - The KP-9 pistol brings the authenticity of Kalashnikov USA and the reliability of innovative technology that never fails.
