The Chiappa AK-9 (or PAK-9) 9mm AK-based pistol is not a new announcement, but at $425 MSRP on the market, it certainly deserves a look at.
One of the AK-9’s biggest selling points, besides the price, is the optional magazine well adapter that allows the use of Glock 17/19/26 mags. The adapter is sold through online retailers for about $30.
Although the pistol itself is being imported into the U.S, by Chiappa, the gun itself is reported to be made by the Cugir Arms Factory in Romania. Cugir, who also manufactures the popular semiautomatic AKM WASR rifle, falls under the state-owned ROMARMS defense company headquartered in Bucharest, Romania.
