CSS Unveils Two New AK Rifle Parts

After decades of producing high quality mil-spec components and assemblies for the M-16/AR-15 platform, the company has added two new parts designed for the AK platform: (1) a stranded wire AK hammer spring and (2) a stranded wire AK extractor spring. Both AK springs are made by CSS at its state-of-the-art production facility in Farmington, CT. Stranded wire technology has been in use at CSS for years and its advantages have been recognized by many OEMs.

CSS is ready to support that need and has the experience and capability to supply volumes of these types of precision components and assemblies.” CSS is capable of manufacturing parts to spec and welcomes drawings or CAD files for review and quotation.
