The MDC 47 “Pestilence” Rifle is Back On Halloween – But Only 45

Why should kids have all the fun this Halloween? It’s time for the adults to get something in their bag. For this reason, Meridian Defense Corp. brings back the MDC 47 “Pestilence” rifle (details below) on Halloween. However, it is only coming back in a limited release of 45 rifles. So, you will want to get in line at Meridian Defense Corp.’s porch early.

The MDC 47 “Pestilence” Rifle Is Back, But Only on Halloween

The first in the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” series, the Pestilence embodies precision, innovation, and handcrafted artistry. Chambered in 7.62×39, the rifle features AK aesthetics and a modernized profile building on MDC’s 1mm fully heat-treated MDC-47 stamped receiver. Likewise, it is constructed of original Romanian military parts kits, riveted into the receiver for maximum durability.

In addition, the rifles feature beautifully refinished wood furniture with a hand-done battleworn finish. Each rifle also comes equipped with the new MDC-FCG Performance trigger. The drop-in trigger is designed to elevate performance for AK-47 and AK-74 platforms.

Although the limited-edition rifle ran out quickly earlier this year, MDC is bringing it back, but only on Halloween. However, the company will only be releasing 45 rifles, so you will want to act fast. At a price of $2,149.00, they are likely to go quickly.

On February 15, 2023, Tactical Life reported:

MDC (Meridian Defense Corp) sure is keeping things exciting for the AK-47 crowd. We recently reported on the “Trench Art” Classic Limited Edition rifle from the company. And now MDC is keeping the pace with its MDC 47 “Pestilence” rifle as part of its Apocalypse Series. But, just like the last rifle from the company, you’re going to need to stay alert because it is a limited pre-order final run. The limited pre-order will open this Sunday, February 19th, at 8:00 AM PST.

The MDC 47 “Pestilence” Rifle

The “Pestilence” is the first in a four-rifle limited edition “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” Series. The series includes the already sold out “War,” “Famine,” and “Death” rifles. Now, fittingly, the “Pestilence” finishes out the final run of the Apocalypse Series.

Constructed of original Romanian military parts kits, the “Pestilence” builds on MDC’s 1mm fully heat-treated MDC-47 stamped receiver. The parts kit is riveted into the receiver for maximum durability. Likewise, MDC includes its American-made 4150 CMV black nitrided barrel for great accuracy and longevity.

The rifle measures 16.1 inches in overall length and features classic AK-47 styling. Additionally, the front end of the rifle features a precision machined AK (FSB) front sight base with an integrated gas block pinned and welded to the barrel. Likewise, the muzzle includes the muzzle device of your choice (choose between 7 options or your own device). However, if you choose to select your own device, it must have an overall length of 2.5 inches and 1/2×28 thread.

The wood furniture on each rifle is completely stripped down and refinished in MDC’s “Apocalypse” style stain. Correspondingly, MDC completely refinishes the entire rifle prior to it receiving the company’s hand-done battleworn finish.

Although it’s not available in Illinois, the “Pestilence” can ship to CA, NJ, NY, and CT in its states legal configuration. Just select between “Free States” or “(CA, NJ, NY, CT) State Compliant Configuration” at checkout.

Additionally, you have the choice to either pay a deposit of half the cost or the full cost when ordering. If you choose to pay the half-down deposit of $1,074.50, the remaining balance will be due upon completion of the build. According to MDC, estimated lead times are currently 12-24 weeks.


The MDC 47 “Pestilence” AK-47 rifle will be available in limited pre-order availability this Sunday, February 19th, at 8:00 AM PST, with an MSRP of $2,149.00. For more info, please visit MeridianDefenseCorp.com.
