Doubt that the scope part is true. More and more pictures surface of Russian forces with aks that have sopme sort of red dots, holos, even their own standart scope like the acog.

Even our dirt poor, underbudget army get holos on pretty much every G36...

And 90-99% of that are not "simple" units Add that quite often all that fancy gear is bought by officers themselves, not supplied or payed by army.

Truth is that there simply isn't any genuine reason for the Russians (or any country, for that matter) to spend a few billion dollars trading AK-74Ms in for the negligible improvements offered by AEKs or AK-12s, especially when they have a few hundred other things that need doing first (like working on infrastructure, for one).

Military spending on a new rifle does not share the same budget pool as public transportation, healthcare or really anything else.

And where does the budget come from?

The question's rhetorical. It comes from taxpayers, who probably wouldn't be all that happy if Putin were to go and spend his petrodollars on rifles of dubious value instead of new roads.

Am I the first the look up the cost of the upgrades?

Rifle Dynamics 07 FFL/SOT - Las Vegas | AK Rifles

I'd have to spend $550 for a basic or $700 for the premium. Screw that, I love my AK as is.

you know its like ive seen that somewhere before

Modern Firearms - AK-102/104/105

There is only one unforgivable lie That is the lie that says, This is the end, you are the conqueror, you have achieved it and now all that remains is to build walls higher and shelter behind them. Now, the lie says, the world is safe.? The Great Khan.

40k is deep like that.
