AK – Series

AK-74

Built by Mikhail Kalashnikov during the 1970’s as a direct replacement for the AKM and AK47 assault rifles, the AK-74 is one of the most well recognized small arms in recent history.  Primarily focusing on converting the USSR’s main combat rifle to the intermediate 5.45x39mm cartridge, the AK-74 brought significant improvements to the field including an extended effective range, accuracy, and reliability over its older counterparts. The AK-74 first saw combat use during the Afghanistan conflict against the Sunni Mujahideen during the Cold War and has seen extensive service and upgrades throughout several European and Middle East conflicts, as well as adoption by other combat forces throughout the world. 

Variants:

AK-74M
Beginning production in 1991, the AK-74M is a direct upgrade of the AK-74 (M for Modernized). With a slew of minor internal improvements to the butt-stock, bolt and carrier assembly, the most notable improvements came with the ability to mount Russian optics via a side-rail bracket and easier mounting of the GP-series of under-slung grenade launchers.
