I don't know of any American made AK-47's. There are many American "modified" Ak's out there. Century Arms probably churns out more than any US supplier but they have a checkered reputation.
There are several American makers of AK's. The first is I.O. Inc., aka Inter Ordinance. They make Ak's based on Polish factory drawings. They have match grade barrels, which they tout will shoot 1 in. with irons. I don't believe that, but the accuracy will be improved. They are made from all new parts, not parts kits. They are 7 pounds.
Century Arms International's Centurion 39 Sporter Rifle is 100% American Made. The sporter is heavier at 8.2 lbs.
According to G&A's Book of the AK-47, Arsenal Inc. makes an AK's, but I wasn't able to find anything on their website. Probably 7 lbs.
I would go I.O. Inc. they have a limited lifetime warranty, parkerized, and a good barrel. Good Luck and happy shooting.
