In the AK-103-3 version, it is equipped with a Picatinny rail on the receiver and the lower part of the forearm to install additional equipment, and also has an additional fuse button.
The rest of the machine is comparable with its characteristics with the basic version of the AK-74M - full length 943 mm, weight without cartridges - 3,6 kg, sighting range with an open sight - 1 kilometer, reports "RG-Power"
