    long-term review

    Published by Matt Moore on 07/01/2022 05:07:52

    I received my Pestilence back in January 2020, and in the 1.5 years that I have owned the rifle I’ve shot roughly 4k rounds. The shooting I do is mostly indoor & outdoor ranges, but I also took it to an AK fundamentals training event where the rifle was put through some hard use over 3 days. In short, my Pestilence has exceeded all of my expectations and then some. I own 5 other AKs and 2 ARs, and this is by far my favorite to shoot. The folks at Meridian Defense tuned the gas just right. It’s soft shooting but has no reliability issues in a variety of weather conditions. The dong grip just makes a lot of sense with the ultimak rail (which gets really hot quickly). With 123 grain Barnaul ammo and just a red dot (Trijicon MRO) I can consistently get 2.5” groups at 100 yards, which is damn good for a stamped receiver AK. The Pestilence looks gorgeous and I get compliments everywhere I take her. If you are wondering if the rifle is worth the cost and/or wait, it’s a fair question to ask. They are not cheap & lead times are long. All I can say is for me the price I paid & the time I waited while she was being built instantly became a faint distant memory the very first time I shot her. In these uncertain times we live in, I sleep better at night knowing my apocalypse rifle is secured & ready for any situation.

    Meridian Defense Pestilence

    Published by Juan Luis Chavez on 06/23/2022 03:06:40

    First impressions of this rifle are it’s better looking in person than what I expected. There’s a lot of attention to detail and the craftsmanship is great. Yeah it was a long wait but man was it worth it! The team over at Meridian definitely have great communication skills all emails and calls where answered same day. I spent a pretty penny on my pestilence rifle but damn right I got my money’s worth! All I need now is an Adidas jump suit this thing (the pestilence rifle)is a beast! Dnt wait too long fellas get your hands on one while you can

    When first receiving the product I was skeptical, but after picking it up I knew it was worth the wait. Amazing craftsmanship and parts. The trigger isn't like anything I've ever used on an AK and the fit is just amazing. Sat in my gun room racking the charging handle with a freedom boner for hours just hearing that metal do its thing. The first range trip was equally orgasmic. Making the ears of fudds ring with a dead air brake on an AK has been well worth it. 10/10 would recommend

    Ordered the Pestilence AK-47 on 19MAY21 and picked up from my FFL on 07JUN22. This is my second MDC rifle I have purchased. The Pestilence is a work of art. The quality of the fit and finish is exceptional. The rifle shoots and functions outstanding without any issues. I cannot recommend MDC enough.

    GNARLIEST AK I OWN

    Published by Danny Jacobo on 06/08/2022 04:06:36

    I bought this AK mainly because of the looks but when I got it in my hands, it was as if it had been created by God. Perfect weight and balance. Easy to shoot and extremely ergonomic! It's my most favorite AK. Highly recommended to all my AK operators out there!

    Pestilence

    Published by RJ on 06/05/2022 06:06:35

    Yep, worth the wait. Out back to zero today, shot 100m groups that would have made any rifle proud, but truly impressive from an AK (1.2 inch 5 shot group, cold barrel, 2 inch 10 shot group, hot, both with iron sights off of a sandbag lying in the driveway). The adjustable gas system is a must have--once tuned, it put all the brass (uh, steel, wolf basic ammo--makes the accuracy all that more impressive) in about a 2 foot area 5 feet away. 10 more clicks and it's ready for, um, increased back pressure? Nice barrel, and bonus, concentric threads are obviously present beneath the pinned and welded hider. Fit and finish is excellent. Sights are almost too tight for zeroing. Well done, Meridian, this is a champ of a rifle. I recommend the upgraded trigger and gas system, if you are pulling the trigger on one of these (heh, see what I did there?).

    The beautiful pestilence rifle

    Published by Jason Crowell on 05/24/2022 03:05:53

    I have waited to submit a review about this rifle until I've had a thorough amount of time with it. I've put 500 or so rounds through it and can still say that I'm unbelievably impressed with the quality put into the rifle. I've seen other people have home built and WASR ak's at the range and the quality alone puts those to shame. Not to shame those people. The rifle is just that nice. On top of looks the pestilence is a great shooting rifle. At 100 yards the rifle holds an impressive zero. I only shoot off hand and still held under 1 inch groups. TLDR: the rifle is worth the money and the wait.
