Re: Centurion 39 AK-47
The B-West AK-47 was made in Tuscon, Az. They were shut down by the BATF some 20 years ago. The BATF did not want the AK-47 produced in the U.S. The BATF charged B-West with making sheet metal parts in a plant not connected to the main factory. The BATF claimed sub-standard heat treating of the ejectors. Like they would care. There has never been a reported failure of a B-West AK-47. I own 2 of the B-West rifles and they have fired 1,000s of rounds no problems. So yes AK-47 were made in America a long time ago.
