How much does the Century Arms ras47 cost?
The Century Arms RAS47 is a rugged, reliable entry-level AK that’s ready to go to work right out of the box at a price that won’t break the bank. With a list price of $699.99, it’s not hard to find this gun with actual prices closer to $600.
Is the ras47 the most accurate AK ever fired?
I ran the RAS47 with iron sights and my eyes have half a century’s worth of mileage on them. AK sights are yesterday’s news but I was still pleasantly surprised with the accuracy potential of the rifle. I’ve launched more than my share of 7.62x39mm rounds downrange, and the RAS47 was the most accurate AK I’ve ever fired.
How do you adjust the sight on a century ras47?
The front sight is protected by heavy steel ears and is adjustable for windage and elevation via a dedicated tool. The sight ears, like everything else on the gun, are essentially indestructible. The RAS47 we received from Century was nicely zeroed and did not require any sight adjustments.
What does the ras47 run like?
In short, it runs like a Kalashnikov. The Energizer Bunny wishes he were this reliable. The RAS47 is monotonously consistent and packs a heavy downrange punch. There are more accurate rifles, as are there guns that better fit the human form. However, there is nothing-repeat, nothing-which runs more reliably than a well-made AK.
