Video: Definitive Arms AKX-9 Finally Unveiled, Now Available Online


Earlier this week I posted about the upcoming reveal of the Definitive Arms AKX-9. Today, AK Operators Union uploaded a seven-minute video showing off the new blowback 9x19mm in-depth, and announced its availability online. The gun is quite the sight to behold (note that Rob has installed a couple of aftermarket furniture accessories on his personal test gun).

The first run of AKX-9s are available now through Copper Custom and Atlantic Firearms. Several variants are listed on Copper Custom and Atlantic, including a fixed-stock model with wood furniture, a pistol variant, and a side-folder with a triangular skeletonized stock. Prices run from $1,499 to $1,779. All of the AKX-9 models use Colt-pattern 9x19mm magazines. The product description for the triangle side-folder (priced the highest at $1,779) is as follows:

  • AKX-9 Features
