The Armory USA SSR85C-2 is unique among the AK family as it combines characteristics of both the AK-47 and the AKM rifle.

AK characteristics :
Wide front sight base
Gas block
8 port/side venting gas tube
Lower handguard retainer
800 meter rear sight
Rear sight base
Non-ribbed receiver cover
Telescoping recoil spring guide rod

AKM characteristics :
Slant brake
Reinforced safety lever
Flat firing pin
Stamped receiver
Polymer stock and pistol grip

Made in Bulgaria, the SSR85C-2 receiver is a modified AKM type, 1.6mm thick compared to 1mm receiver on a “standard” AKM. Made to Armory USA specifications, the SSR85C-2’s thicker receiver allows for greater durability and accuracy, and were designed for the use of double hook triggers. This allows the rifles a smoother trigger pull without the “trigger slap“ found on many AK‘s that use single-hook trigger systems.

US made components -
Slant brake
Milled steel double hook 3 piece trigger group (hammer, trigger and disconnector)
Stainless steel gas piston
Polymer pistol grip

I bought one of them a few years ago. I made it my Tactical AK project.

The Kalashnikov Klub

ACE Skeleton folding stock, Ultimak handguard (w/ rail covers) and gas tube, Phantom 5C2 FH, PROMAG VFG, SAW pistol grip, Vickers Blue Force 2-pt. sling, MI sling swivels, inexpensive Aimpoint red-dot clone, and Bulgarian waffle mags.

Hey TR, As you can see, I still have my Armory USA SSR-85C-2. It stills works like a charm. Thanks again for all the help you gave.
