Century Arms VSKA Features

The Century Arms VSKA is an American-made AKM pattern rifle that operates on a long-stroke gas piston with a 2-lug rotating bolt action…it’s basically an M1 Garand but upside down and designed by a communist.  This rifle is semi-automatic only and has parts compatibility with an overwhelming majority of aftermarket AK parts.  It even has a notch cut into the safety lever so you can manually lock the bolt back for storage.

Century Arms VSKA Capacity

The VSKA is chambered in 7.62x39mm (M44) and feeds from all standard AKM pattern magazines aside from the Saiga-pattern units.  This gives the rifle a standard magazine capacity of 30 rounds, however the shorter 10 and 20 round box magazines will work without issue, as will the 60 and 75 round drum magazines.

The VSKA measures 37.25 inches long and has an unloaded weight of 7.5 pounds giving it an identical overall length to other AKs on the market and a slightly lighter weight.  Typically, users will add a red dot, an aluminum handguard and other attachments that increase the weight to exceed 10 pounds, but the rifle alone has a mobility score slightly under the AR15.

Century Arms VSKA Ergonomics

The VSKA has the same control layout as any other AK47 and is built with the standard undersized pistol grip, however there are some slight changes that really differentiate the rifle from other AKs.  The magazine release lever is enlarged for the user’s benefit, and the stock is raised to reduce muzzle climb at the expense of higher felt recoil.

Century Arms VSKA Fit & Finish

The VSKA is built with a stamped receiver and has parts compatibility with many aftermarket manufacturers, though this rifle is superior over other AKM variants due to its machined barrel trunnion.  Although a forged barrel trunnion is superior regarding durability, the machined ones are often more accurate and they don’t crack as early as the cast trunnions tend to do.
