Evidently some crazy dudes in Iowa are now shipping the ARK, a true AR-15 AK-47 Hybrid.
My initial take on this is that it is an AK-47 with an updated, milled, aluminum receiver and an M4 fire control group. Basically Creative Arms updated the Kalash design with Stoner stuff while keeping all of the good stuff from General Kalashnikov's rifle. The ARK design includes a dust cover that is made for optics and it takes regular AK mags. Brilliant. I would have liked to see an ambidextrous charging handle, but this is a great start.
Creative Arms's web site says it costs $1450, which is perfectly in line with a solid AK and much cheaper than the other updated AK, the SIG 556R.
What do you think?
