The party of the modernized Kalashnikov AK-74M "body kit" entered the ZVO

A batch of modernized Kalashnikov AK-74M assault rifles with the universal kit “Bodykit” came into service with the Vistula motorized infantry division of the combined arms army deployed in the Belgorod Region. This was reported by the press service of the district.


According to the report, the machines were delivered as part of the state defense order; in total, more than 1,5 thousand AK-74M 5,45-mm caliber in the latest universal kit “Body kit” arrived in the division. Military personnel have already fired from the new weapons, including at distances from 80 to 250 meters.

The kit “Bodykit” includes an upper bracket with a Picatinny rail, a telescopic butt with an adjustable cheek, an anatomical pistol grip, a removable tactical front grip, a flame arrester, an arm for attaching a flashlight, a laser target designator and other auxiliary equipment. At the same time, it remains possible to mount a bayonet-knife and a barrel grenade launcher.


An assault rifle with a kit of modernization “Body kit” is included in the combat equipment of a military man “Ratnik” as an element of a promising equipment complex.

It is noted that this modernization of the AK-74M with the use of the kit “Bodykit” allows to increase the effectiveness of the machine according to the criterion of “frequency of damage” by one and a half times at a distance of up to 300 meters. Upgraded weapons can be used at any time of day and in various climatic conditions.

    It looks amusing. Interestingly, the bar on the cabinet is folding or removable? Well, how is it with the additional equipment (flashlights, laser sight, sights): what are they giving out to the soldiers now?

      And this depends on where you climb with the machine gun on which the flashlight is standing) besides there is such a concentrated beam that it greatly facilitates shooting at a vskid at the chest target)

    So what is the point of the AK-12 (in the form in which it is purchased)?

      Posted forearm and short piston stroke. As well as the receiver lid folds back and doesn’t take off. They look similar. In fact, the new machine is different. Yes and the fire switch is made so that the shooter can do one finger without removing his hand from the handle. There is another mode cut-off for three shots. here is the difference to you. and you say PR.

        This, plus a telescopic butt, plus a quick-detachable DTK. In general - nothing revolutionary, just "combing" in terms of ergonomics.

      - And we do not know how.
      - No one can. The point is not in skill, not in desire, and in general in nothing.
      The thing is sewing on the collar itself.

      For the most part, representatives of the CC shouted, and they can be understood, because you need to somehow sell the products. Moscow region’s AK-12 is much calmer, and the great thousands of AK-74s available in warehouses also need to be put somewhere; modernization looks like a reasonable option, moreover that the tuned AK-74 is not much inferior to the AK-12.

        Well, in your opinion everything needs to be modernized, the question is why then throw money into the development, according to the latest AK (AK-12) developments. When the AK-12 will be on the stream, where to put everything old and now modernized, or wait until they become morally and technically obsolete, so that they would upgrade again and so on ad infinitum ... And the body kit with tuning is not a modernization. I talked with the guys who shot with the AK-12 and they said the Ak-74 is inferior in accuracy, convenience and efficiency.

          this is called a scheduled replacement with new designs. but at the same time it is possible and necessary to upgrade the old ones and continue to use them. it has always been and will be so. millions to buy new trunks to replace this is the top of the schizo. gradually re-equipping compound after compound. from year to year increasing the amount of new.

            It only turns out that they changed the "awl for soap", there is no coordinating difference between the body kit and the AK-12 (the first AK-12 samples were very different from what went into the series).

              any mechanisms have their own service life. replacement 74 sooner or later was due to begin. MO are satisfied with new samples. 74 will be upgraded. 12 and AEK will gradually replace them. without jerking and straining.

          No, in my opinion - you need to spend money wisely. Where it is possible to do with modernization - to modernize, where it is impossible - to replace with new models.

          Quote: Alexey-74
          the question is why then throw money into the development, as claimed by the latest developments of AK (AK-12)

          As I see it: the MO has not been buying new AK-74s for a long time (because there are a lot of them in warehouses), therefore, KK started on an initiative basis the development of a conditionally new machine to supply it already.

          Quote: Alexey-74
          When the AK-12 becomes on the stream, where to put all the old and now modernized

          If they meet the requirements and objectives, why put them somewhere? If they do not match, then this is another conversation.

          Quote: Alexey-74
          A body kit with tuning is not a modernization

          If you look, the AK-12 is a well-tuned AK-74. Of the significant differences there is perhaps a trigger with a cut-off and a suspended barrel; the rest is a fashionable body kit.

          Quote: Alexey-74
          I talked with the guys who shot with the AK-12 and they said the Ak-74 is inferior in accuracy, convenience and efficiency.

          Convenience and performance in this case are determined by the body kit - i.e. the set discussed in the article, the difference in these parameters can almost level. As for accuracy: well, here we need to compare the modernized AK-74 with the AK-12 and see how big the difference is, then make a conclusion whether the game is worth the candle.

      They released how many thousands and that's enough. It costs money, but does not have big advantages over old automatic machines. Sighting range is the same, penetration is the same, in general all the main characteristics are practically unchanged. It looks cooler.

    Who can tell me why the Kalashnikov group has not yet made a FULLY transparent store?



    Why even in military agencies do they already exist, but not in the army ?!

    What could be simpler and more convenient? I glanced - it’s instantly clear how much is left and whether it is necessary to change the store.

    No, they will sculpt some windows the size of a match head, through which anyway it will not be clear how much is 5 or 10, 10 or 15.

      Perhaps it is problematic to make plastic both durable and transparent? Or is it, in principle, not as valuable as it seems? In any case, in the photographs of the military of different countries transparent stores were met only by the Germans (they went to the G36 regularly).

      In 85 or 86, Kalashnikov came to our school, we asked him the same question (how many years have we been ahead of you? laughing ), he said - so far there is no such transparent material that would guarantee the same reliability as the current store, but we are working on this issue, like. So many years have passed, and a private trader has already come to the plant, but the question is still there. It’s sad.

    Something is not clear: why was it “inventing” the AK-12 (15), taking it into service, but then putting it into the troops, on state defense orders (!!!) the AK-74M with the kit “Bodykit” ?! fool

      Here I am about the same .... I agree that constant modernization is necessary, the whole question is why spend a lot of money to create an AK-12/15 and not supply it to the troops, but to modernize the AK-74.

    It was in my body kit, heavier than the AK 74M per kilogram, it was also a bandura (mastered budget money), I didn’t receive any front handles from the warehouse (I wonder where they went). Now we’re moving to AK 12, ten have already received what you liked; very much ergonomic and sleek, a good sight but you need to get used to it, the recoil is softer. What you didn’t like; from the warehouse we got it naked, we don’t take collimators or night nozzles, where is it all !? AK 12 is a complex, and it can be called a complex if it has additional equipment that increases the fighter’s potential on the battlefield. And for couch experts who don’t like picatinis (they tear their shape)), picatini serves not only for different I’ll quickly attach the barrel, personally for me, plus picatinny in the fact that if you work with a collimator during the day, when night falls you don’t need to remove it and put the initial scope with a plug (dovetail) and scratch your turnip, as if to bring this night light to a normal battle! (because users working with sights know IF YOU REMOVED ANY OPERATED OPTICAL OR COLLIMATOR SIGHT FROM THE AUTOMATIC MACHINE, I HAVE TO LIVE IT TO ANYTHING BACK TO NORMAL BATTLE! checked more than once ☝️ and it doesn’t matter which mount, picatini or the collimator led him to a normal battle, the night fell, added a night nozzle to the collimator and voila. Only night nozzles are not in stock and there are no collimators either.) Although everything seems to go on in the STAR channel

    Yeah. And if I stick a spoiler and fashionable bumpers on the Oka, then I will win the Formula 1 race.
    HOW do the “grip, bar and flashlight" affect weapon characteristics? The main factors of influence here are the cartridge-barrel complex and the shooter himself. And the “body kit” is a well-developed direction among the Indians. Look at their tanks in parades.
