Izhmash prototype of the updated AK

Izhmash prototype of the updated AK
"Last year I reported that Izhmash would launch a new line of AK-style rifles this year. While this new line has not yet materialized, a prototype has been unveiled. It modernizes the AK-74M / AK-100 series by adding rails for optics and other accessories, as well as a few other minor improvements."




Plenty of pics in the link....

I'm not familiar with the inherent flaws of an AK as I've never owned one, and only casually fired one.

What improvements are you hoping to see?

Better question is do YOU know what an assault rifle is? Did you get a shotgun yet?

The only thing scary is you. with a FOID, and your 3 handguns

You know, the allure of the AK is gone. With ammo prices now higher than ever and rifle prices no longre in the sub$300 catagory what real purpose does an AK hold?

No question it is one of the most rugged battle proven rifles out there but for the cost of an AK now a days you have many other more accurate options. And in addition, not many actualy buy an AK cause it can be bent, shit on and run over and still work.

All I'm saying is thatthe hay day of the budget banging AK is over! I remember whne 1K rounds couldnt be given away at $125 and guns, NICE guns, were in the $250 -$350 price range.

At the $750+ price range for a nice AK, you now have to many options. And in my opinion the AK fals short.

Now if yo have everything else and still want an AK have at it!
