    How is the SSR-85-C rifle?It was made by Armory .I have been looking for a AK47 and was put in touch with an old friend who is moving and sold it to me for $400.So I know I got a good deal ,but have not been able to find much info on it.I know it has to be better than a Wasr.

    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.


    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.
