AK47 Poly Technologies Legend Manual Printed Copy Black-White 000-088. This AK47 Poly Technologies Re-Print Legend AK47 Rifle Manual 25th Anniversary Edition helps change this fact. The AK47 Poly Technologies Legend AK47 Rifle 25th Anniversary Edition Owner’s Manual makes the perfect replacement for gun enthusiasts who have been looking for the original manual that was included with every Chinese PolyTech Legend Rifle.
This rifle is in excellent condition. Notice the beautiful dark furniture that is in nearly perfect condition except for a minor ding on the wood buttstock (I have included a picture for your review). Speaking of buttstock, you will find the standard cleaning kit in the buttstock trapdoor. This rifle has been fired very little and is well maintained. The wood and metal finish is excellent for a Chinese military purpose rifle. All numbers match and for the collector, you will notice all the correct markings are there Poly Tech AK-47S made in BEIJING, CHINA 386 P47 and the Milled Receiver. This rifle was Imported by KFS Atlanta, GA. Very, Very Clean. The overall condition of this gun has been set at 98%. This is hands down the best AK I have owned. Fit and finish is better than seen on most other AK’s.
*** – What makes Poly Tech Legend AK-47’s so good? Here are some attributes that differentiate Polytechs from the competition:
Milled receivers are said to offer better accuracy and longer life spans that stamped receivers. This Polytech Legend up for auction has the premium milled receiver.
Polytech Legends were imported for a relatively short period of time by KFS in Atlanta, GA (approximately a two year window running from 1988 to 1989) and are not the run of the mill commoditized AK47s one so often sees on a daily basis.
Another example of the Polytech advantage can be found when one looks at the bolt carrier and bolt which are parkerized for improved corrosion resistance. Many companies simply use a blue finish or sometimes, no finish at all! Bid with confidence – this one is the cream of the crop and includes the parkerized bolt carier & bolt.
The Legends are built with other superior features as well. The Polytech’s gas block is machined from a solid forging for superior strength (not a casting that some other manufacturers use to save money).
You will find the breech block is also machined from a solid forging for superior strength. Again, many non-Polytech manufacturers have decided to save costs or cut corners by using two separate pieces fastened together. Not Poly Technologies, Inc. the company that has over thirty years experience manufacturing weapons systems for the Chinese military.
What else makes this rifle better? All Poly Tech AK hammers feature a special heat-treating process utilized on all mil-spec AKs to insure against component failure. Extensive torture tests conducted by the Chinese military (in full auto-mode) revealed a 125% improvement in durability versus components left untreated.
And there’s more good news – The Poly Tech AK hammer retaining spring is coiled around the safety lever shaft to guard against potential dislodgement of the hammer. In other AKs, the hammer retaining spring rests alongside the left hand side of the receiver; it is not secured.
Safety is paramount and that’s why all Poly Tech AKs are equipped with spring-loaded firing pins to eliminate any chance for the occurrence of a “slam fire”. Other AK manufacturers still use floating firing pins – use commercial 7.62x39mm loads in their rifles at your own risk!
Please do not bid on this rifle if you live in a place that does not allow you to own it or legally take possession. For example, places like California & NY City (Check with your local FFL Contact to see what is legal where you live). Thank you for looking.
