Meet the New C39v2 Blade AK Pistol from Century Arms

Sometimes success in the firearms business is just simple arithmetic. Take, for example, the Century Arms C39v2 AK pistol, add to it a Shockwave Blade, and you have what is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

That may be the impetus behind Century Arms new C39v2 Blade Pistol. The company took one of its best-selling platforms and ameliorated its shoot-ability with the addition of a stabilizing brace.

(Which means users will get all the novelty of an AK-pattern SBR with none of the NFA hassle. Caution! Read this before you contemplate “shouldering” the brace…)

As Jason Karvois, Century’s Director of Sales, said in the press release, “The addition of the Shockwave Blade offers a very handy and accurate pistol with the reliability and durability you would expect from an AK.”

The C39v2 Blade Pistol is 100 percent American made. The brace is attached directly to the rear of the receiver using a proprietary buffer tube mounting adapter. Century said it will make this adapter available as a separate accessory in the coming months.

“Compatible with the Century Arms AK Micro Dot Side Mount for rugged mounting of optics, the C39v2 Blade Pistol features a 4150 nitride-treated barrel and milled receiver, RAK-1 Enhanced Trigger Group, and quick-detach attachment points for easy mounting of a tactical sling,” said Century.

The C39v2 Blade Pistol is now shipping to distributors and dealers everywhere. In addition to the Shockwave Blade, the package comes with one 30-round magazine. Though it will accept all standard AK mags. For more information, make sure to visit

As for the price? MSRP is $949.99. I’ve already seen a few pop up on GunsAmerica, listed for around $900. Happy Hunting!

    You are not very well informed and your position not very well thought out. It makes me wonder if you even own firearms.

    Bump stocks are evil are they? Ever seen anyone bumpfire a weapon by using the belt loop of their pants? Ever seen anyone bumpfire a weapon just by using a little technique to do so?

    The few new gun rules you speak of directly attack the second amendment, and our Constitution. The fact that school shootings have drastically declined over the last 25 years means nothing to you. The fact that these new laws attack our Constitution mean nothing. The fact that much of this bill was in symbolism over substance also means nothing to you.
    Should we raise the age limit on teens driving cars to the age of 21? How many accidents could be avoided? How much less traffic?

    Vehicles have now been used as terror weapons in this country, would you support the ban of all privately owned vehicles? How about putting governors in everyone’s cars to regulate the speed? How about everyone turn in their cars and only government sanctioned busses can be used for legal transportation for the masses?

    I see that you never mentioned the failure of law enforcement and that they had 6 months to address this mentally damaged young adult? The fact that Police were called out 39 times to this person’s home in a year? What a profound idea it would be to actually address the problem?

    I think you are an ignorant liberal pretending to be something else.

    Why wait, I made 2 of these along with a bunch of MAC types with Blades, but I never ever shoulder them. Now speaking on that, Bump Stock should never have been allowed and u all know it. FL may pass a few new gun rules, so what I lived when they did that the last time, and it did not hurt me.
