For 2019 Century Arms introduces its newest heavy duty AK rifle, the VSKA (vis-kuh). Re-engineered with critical components using machined S7 tool steel, a material so highly regarded for it's ability to withstand heavy duty action that it's used in excavator teeth and jackhammer tips!
The VSKA rifle features an all new bolt carrier, front trunnion, and feed ramp machined from S7 tool steel and specially heat treated for maximum durability. S7, often referred to as a “Shock-Resisting Tool Steel,” is commonly used for tools like chisels and jackhammer tips as it has maximum shock resistance and high compression strength, while retaining toughness. The front trunnion and bolt are machined from billet and exceeded the durability goals for the project. Additionally, the VSKA features a carburized 4140 steel bolt, a chrome-moly 4150 barrel, and sports the RAK-1 Enhanced Trigger Group for an impressive trigger pull. Along with a manganese-phosphate finish, Century adds a little style to the heavy-duty brute with an American Maple wood buttstock and forend.
I have read mixed reviews, but have found this is a quality AK.....far superior than IO. I'm still a huge fan of PSA, but for $533 G4G guns you can not go wrong here!
Beautiful carbine. Great upgrades, action was tight and quality abounds. Maple looks great on the black finish. Carbine built from Military Rifle program exceeded all tests. Great rifle to add to armory.
I’ve heard and read every bad comment there is about Century Arms and it’s horrible front trunnions.
I however took a chance with much research on the VSKA. So far I have put over 1,300 rounds through the VSKA, all Tula Ammo. I clean it after each range use and constantly maintain it. It’s a very nice firearm and I would definitely buy it again if I had the chance. SOSS is selling theirs at a price which I wish I would have participated in. I paid $750 after taxes at my local gun shop.
Two complaints I would say about this firearm is one, the magnesium phosphate finish isn’t my cup of Russian vodka. Two, the Maple fore grip does smoke after 2-3 mag dumps also the stock does get lose. Mine has a slight wobble after 700 rounds. A quick tighten from a Phillips wrench fixed it up. The VSKA is a step above their previous AK variants. I would dare say it is better than a WASR, being it completely constructed in USA down to the barrel. I would highly recommend buying this AK over an Inter Ordinance brand. I give this rifle a 5 out of 5 Russian stars.
