Century Arms Red Army Standard 7.62x39 Ammunition

Delray Beach, Fla. –– Century Arms, North America’s premier AK manufacturer, has announced the anticipated return of Red Army Standard premium, boat tail 7.62x39mm ammunition. The new version, featuring a boat tail bullet and sealed neck and primer, was introduced to the market last year and is being imported again in very limited quantities.


“We’ve spent a great amount of effort to develop what we feel is the best 7.62x39 ammo currently imported into the country,” said William Sucher, the company’s Director of Business Development. “As the leader in the AK market, we wanted to ensure that our customers have access to the best ammo possible to run through their rifles and pistols. We have been thrilled by the reception of this sku and are working diligently on increasing capacity to meet the demand.”


The Red Army Standard 7.62x39mm FMJBT (Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail) ammunition is tested with all Century Arms AK rifles and pistols such as the 100% American made C39v2 and the highly sought-after Draco pistol series. The rare, limited quantity ammunition is manufactured in Russia in a facility that specializes in cartridges for military and sporting/hunting small arms using high quality components and powders. This ammunition features a 124 grain FMJBT bullet with a bimetal jacket and lead core, non-corrosive primers, a lacquered steel case for smooth feeding and extraction. A military-grade sealant is applied around the bullet and primer to keep moisture out and ensure performance even after long-term storage. All of these features make the Red Army Premium 7.62x39mm ammunition a great option for target shooting, practice,  or a backup storage plan.


Red Army Standard 7.62x39mm FMJBT ammunition offers a more affordable, high quality option for the AK enthusiast. Now available to consumers through their local distributor or dealer, the ammunition ships perfectly packed in 20 round boxes and also 1,000 round cases with an MSRP of $5.00 per box and $250.00 per case.
