Default AK 3rd generation

Everybody knows that there is a SOPMOD (Special Operations Peculiar MODification), which includes a lot of stuff that can be used with M4 rifle. Such images can be familiar to you, there you can find different rails, scopes, silencers etc:



That looks impressive. But I've never heard about such modifications for russian AK, and while surfing on the web today I found interesting image in one blog. There we can see new rails, handgrips, lasers, recoil-reducing muzzles, one telescopic buttstock and one holographic scope for AK rifles:



Something tells me that this stuff can be applied not only for special forces, but in the regular army too. Looks like an attempt to upgrade old good AK-74 and construct the third generation of rifles.

P.S. That bullpup version of AK really surprised me
P.P.S. Sorry for my english

sexy ak is sexy

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.

I have just never heard about bullpup version. If it is custom-made then who uses it? Alpha?

P.S. Would be nice to see bullpup AKs in PR (for officers maybe).

Yeah, there is also custom work present in the russian army.

Custom AK-74 assault rifle and APB submachine gun - Video (c) KardeN - YouTube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiPBG...eature=related (even if its not ak)

AK-74M - Video by KardeN - YouTube

The last one is especially nice- shows how stable is AK in hands of a professional.
