 The MDC-UCR 47s is a lightweight military variation rifle with a unique combination of the Classic AK 47 design with modern day attributes. The UCR 47s front section uses our American made black nitride barrel and FSB (front sight block). With the addition of the Ultimak Picatinny style gas tube, it gives the end user the ability to mount the optic in a forward position for faster, easier and more natural targeting while maintaining your full field of view. Multiple targets or moving target engagements, with both eyes open, become second nature. The MDC-47s is built on our own receivers and high quality original military grade AK47 parts. We use our American made 4150 CMV black nitrided barrels which provide great accuracy and longevity. The gun is finished in Cerakote which provides excellent corrosion resistance and increased service life

Each receiver is hand built with attention to detail using CNC machines to ensure accuracy. The receiver is fully heat treated in a salt bath to a hardness of 40 HRC. Our receivers have the proper Safe & Fire markings as well as the Selector Notches. All Receivers are tumbled for smooth carrier cycling and function.

    UCR 47

    Published by AK guy (former AR guy) on 04/12/2022 12:04:57

    1000% worth the wait. Absolutely in love with my UCR from Meridian Defense. Thing is absolutely sick. Never owned an AK, always been into AR platforms, but this rifle has got me hooked. Quality, color, fit, and finish had all the local gun shop/gunsmith guys completely nerding out! I will definitely be a return customer in the future. As soon as I opened the case and picked up the rifle I was amazed. Upon further examination I recognized the overall care/time/all around badassery that went into my build! Superb. I got some rounds coming in.. but my supply won’t last long because I’m gonna put it through its paces! Definitely worth the time because of the effort. Thanks for converting me to the DARKSIDE.

    Rifle is beautifully crafted and built like a tank. Lighter weight than I was expecting and very ergonomic. Shoulders easy and sights are quick to acquire. Cerakote finish really ties the build together. Very happy with my 2nd build from these guys. You won’t be disappointed.

    From the moment I picked it up I could tell it was just made better. Everything fits together perfectly. I’ve had my share of AK’s but this is without question the pinnacle of my collection.

    I ordered one in February, received it in early November and I am in love. Yes, the wait is long and the price tag is steep, but this rifle is damn near perfect when it comes to fit, finish, quality, and attention to detail. After paying 2 grand for an AKM, you'd best believe I broke out the calipers and the magnifying glass. There isn't a single imperfection. They even timed the muzzle device (a flash hider with no timining reqs) within a thou before pinning and welding. The handguard is mounted solid with no play. The gas block/FS combo is pinned to the barrel (unlike some gucci builders) and perfectly straight. Rivets are round and trunnions are flush. The cerakote is done correctly. The safety resistance is ideal out the box. I can't wait to start running this thing hard. Suffice it to say that I purchased from these guys to get perfection and I'm thoroughly pleased with the result. Some rifles are more fine than others. Rifle is VERY fine. Also, worth mentioning their customer service is awesome, and they sent me a surprise that I was not expecting. Thanks, guys!

    Believe the hype

    Published by Tim E. on 09/28/2021 04:09:47

    It took awhile, but the wait was absolutely worth it. Wanted a lighter, more traditional ak so I chose the ucr over the volk. Fit and finish is amazing. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.
