Do you have a PSA AK-V and looking to modify it beyond a simple drop-in handguard? Rifle Dynamics is offering an AK-V Quickhatch conversion service on their website. When I was out with Rifle Dynamics helping to film some of their guns in slow motion, they brought out their post-sample PSA AK-V Quickhatch so we could film some of it and I got to pull the trigger on it a bit.

Last year Rifle Dynamics came out with their short buffer for use in the KP9 PCC. Well, they put one in their AK-V Quickhatch and wanted to compare it to the factory PSA buffer. We swapped their short buffer for my factory AK-V buffer and I filmed them with the dust cover off so we could see the bolt cycle.
