    Where is the video about the A-545? But somehow it’s not fair ...

      In the failure-free operation, the AEK971 is still inferior to the AK74M. It is a fact. A gear that synchronizes the operation of the bolt and counterweight, working in jerk-shock conditions cannot be as reliable as the AK mechanism.

        The question in this connection is the following: Why is it the AK-12 with unbalanced automation that is participating in the competition, and not for the AK-108, which has this option? And what is the essence of the difference between the AK-12 and the AK-74, except for Picatinny bars?

          It is precisely because of this that it is involved that balanced automation is much more capricious than Kalashnikov’s classic. Plus, a process already established for decades by those for which transferring production to AK12 at a cost is significantly cheaper than organizing mass production of AEKs completely from scratch. By the way, I also sympathized with balanced automation a few years ago, but illusions fade over the years. And the understanding comes that the army is not an experimental workshop and not a civilian market with its requests for exotics.
          What is essentially AEK971 better than AK12? Only accuracy when shooting LONG bursts. And often we use long lines for firing at a distance of over 200m? Rarely. The main fire from machine guns and machine guns is single and deuces-three of short bursts. And then AEK has no practical advantage. But in reliability, he is already losing at the design stage. The gear will not let you lie - how many years has this AEK been licked and polished to achieve the sane resource of this gear itself? And the sand with gryazyuk will hit and that's it - the balanced automation is over.

          And now about AK12. It differs significantly from AK74 for the better. He has a thicker and more accurate barrel. He has another DTK - which dampens returns much better. It has a shutter lag, which the AK74 lacked. It has a convenient switch of fire modes and a safety lock for the thumb. He has reinforced the mount of the receiver cover, for the possibility of installing collimator sights and optics without the danger that the sights will be lost from the adjustments.

          AK12 is the dream of all the Hanzophiles of the mid-1990s. This is the perfect AK74M. What he was supposed to be in the army of 2000, ideally. Better late than never.

          And AEK971 is a specific weapon. Let the special services use it. They need him. But for the mass army, it is not needed both in terms of its economic component, and in reliability and reliability in the hands of a rookie.

      2000 shots, this is essentially about nothing, pichal.

    Both machines are good in their own way. But this is what bothers me: in the courtyard of the 21st century, and in the video new serial machines only from the factory (even the fly did not sit), with bent, uneven details, some notches. Well, you can probably do something neatly somehow? It seems that Kalashnikov’s concern was also refitted - the machines are new, but the result is the same ...

      And you vote further for the capitalists - the notches will be better, more efficient and more beautiful, and most importantly, there will be more of them over the years))) This property of capitalism in Russia is such that it makes everything worse than under the communists.

    I'm already confused about the AK-12 versions. Will this Hell ever end?

      Yes. Now they’re showing off. They will fasten the strips and a new butt to the AK-74 (and not all military branches need it, a new one). And it’s all over. They will leave the AK-74 the main one. reliability standard. AK-74 is a whole philosophy of war. Many methods of hand-to-hand combat based on its non-killability and durability are built.

      Back in 2001, all wet-eyed Hanzophiles dreamed of at least one Picatinny rail on an army machine))))) And now there are so many different versions with different designs! ))))

        Throw out all the versions in the mud and let the "designers" hand over to the foreman in the arms at speed laughing If it’s for me and AKM 7.62 * 39, a scratched fit laughing

    Yes, probably the money is slowly being allocated, now they are experimenting. And all this will end, that the upgraded AK-74 will remain with us! Almost everyone served with it, the automatic is good. Maybe experts will point out the unsuccessful ammunition, but this is a serious matter, to replace the ammunition no one will go.
    It is to rebuild the cartridge industry, to create mobilization reserves of cartridges, and to make a couple of million assault rifles is expensive!
    Maybe they will release a small batch of new machine guns (under the existing cartridge) -for specialists, this is all over! hi

      Here, it’s more likely not the bad ammunition, but the quality. To set tolerances half as small in the manufacture of cartridges, and it would be all gut.

    The device is a worker, confiscated from African (I don’t remember the country) poachers, they shot rhinos to them.
