AKM-63: were the Hungarians able to beat the original Kalash?

The media resource of the Russian concern "Kalashnikov" has launched an interesting project dedicated to various foreign modifications of the most popular machine gun. The transmission cycle will tell about all the AK variants that have been produced in the world in the last 60 years.

In the first series, the author decided to dwell on the "Kalash", produced in Hungary. It will be about AKM-63 and AK-55 machines. Their история, advantages and disadvantages, as well as comparison with other modifications and operating experience will interest the true connoisseur weapons.

The AK-55 is a fairly exact copy of the 7,62-mm Kalashnikov assault rifle and was produced in Hungary from 1959 to 1962 year. AKM-63 has become an upgrade of AK-55 and already has significant differences from the "original". Subsequently, designers from Budapest decided to replace AKM-63 with AK-63F, which is a copy of the Soviet AKM.

    In geometry, they completely added a pen ... only no one could surpass the resource ... They overheat and wedge copies with continuous shooting ... At seventy-seventh four horns I released in a row ... and nothing ... but here I look on the Internet ... they start to spit ...

      I don’t know, but one familiar “Afghan” was telling the opposite. According to him, our "Kalash" withstood ten stores, then the "spitting" began. The "Chinese" version, seized from the "spirits" who came from Pakistan, did not suffer such "suffering" ... For what I bought it, as they say. Do not judge, ate infa is not true.

        Looks like years ago, one of you has beguiled. Any of our Kalash far superior to foreigners. And here, over the past years, I forgot which of our Kalash kept for longer, Izhevsk (with an arrow in a triangle) or Tula (with an asterisk). I am excusable, I'm a tankman (in every sense laughing ).

          When the sanctions were imposed, in Alaska, the Yankees bought all Kalashnikovs of Russian origin in gun stores, only Chinese remained on sale. Info was shown on the news of the first channel!

        Do not confuse overheating with barrel life.

    Hungarians, if anyone can surpass, so only Romanians and gypsies. Had cases to make sure. Here they make sausages - you lick your fingers, but the rest - like * not yourself *.

      And you look wider. "Ikarus" remember. About ten years ago I had a Hungarian drill - apparently - the complete identity of the Bosch. Only the sticker is different. Climbed on the Internet - it turns out produces one plant. Guarantees are the same.

        Ikarus collected our soldiers for the USSR. So the Hungarian quality is in question.

      I completely agree! Makita chainsaws are produced in Hungary, the quality of some models is horrible, despite the brand!
