Ukrainian modernizers "killed" 4 thousands of AK-74
Now it turns out that low-quality Kalashnikov assault rifles (AK-74) are also entering the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Ukrainian "specialists" for a considerable amount of money "modernized" about 4 of thousands of Soviet-made machine guns, deciding to equip them with "modern body kits". However, after the implementation of the work, it turned out that the weapon was transformed from a highly reliable one into one that simply could not be operated normally.
Commentary on the "new" machines leads Ukrainian volunteer Roman Donik, who raised funds for the needs of the so-called "ATO". From his message in Facebook (spelling, punctuation and style of the source saved):
We meet 4 000 trunks hopelessly spoiled for our money with you. Four thousand new AK-74 machines disfigured as an upgrade. For mad grandmas. On the stolen and Krivorukov copied Israeli dodger technology. This is really a lot of money, which was paid not only for the work (hack), but also for the work of the design bureau that hand-made the finished product.
I am very short so that everyone can understand, even housewives.
There was a machine gun with a wooden butt. Instead, the butt was broken off and on three cogs they screwed up the tube with a device that should make the butt fold. They called it AKM-TK and AK-TK. Three screws that secure the new butt, after the 40-50 shots are unwound. Cogs are not easy. 2 screws M4 with a pitch 0,5 flat head slot and 1 screw M6 pitch 0,75 cross head. If you lose the screw you can not unscrew it from somewhere. rare type. But that's not all. The very loop that should fold the butt and fix rigidly in the unfolded position with backlash. Just hanging out. But that's not all.
The design of aluminum forearm with a collimator. Vent tube - part of the forearm. Heat is given by the tube forearm and warms the collimator. There are cases of breakage. But that's not all. After cleaning the gas outlet, the collimator must be shot again. Or do not clean the gas tube. But that's not all. It is impossible to roll it back, because the plant that received this order for hundreds of thousands of dollars milled the butt plate (the back of the receiver). And now even to return the paddle will not work. These machines look like Tipo cool. But in the operation of complete shit. We specifically waited and collected information on three divisions. Everywhere diseases are the same. Butts hang out after two shot stores. Fight for one full BC, cogs fall out and these machines can be used as samopalyami. Well, with batons. All who have automatic machines, butts dangle.
but they b ..., dudes are harsh, landing, special forces, complaining and writing a report to write zapadlo. Suffer, collective farm. Volunteers again come, repair, put on elbow or superglue. But now there is no fighting. But the kneading will start, and during it, the butts will begin to fly off en masse, and the 200-s in the jambs.
Who will we blame? Or, again, "Heroes do not die" and home? And these bitches cut down the money and spoiled 4000 machines, laugh, and go on vacation at sea. For earned on suckers.
And the question is only one - what sample was tested and who conducted these tests? Is he already sitting?
From the comment of the Ukrainian serviceman:
In general, thanks to the modernizers for the fact that these weapons are extremely difficult to use in the Donbass, which means there is a chance of saving hundreds of lives ...
