The received AK-12s have already been zeroed in at military training grounds.

The new weapon comes as part of the state defense order to replace the AK-74M Kalashnikov assault rifles in service with the troops. It is emphasized that the new AK-12 assault rifles have increased barrel wear resistance due to new technologies used by the manufacturer. In the machine, the shortcomings identified in the framework of the experimental military operation have been corrected.

AK-12 has an increased accuracy of fire and improved ergonomics. The buttstock is foldable, adjustable in length, there is a Picatinny rail on the receiver. A 40-mm grenade launcher is installed on the machine.

Deliveries of AK-12s to the Russian army began in December 2018, when the Ministry of Defense received 2,5 new assault rifles. On the adoption of the AK-12 (5,45 mm caliber) and AK-15 (7,62 mm) assault rifles, as well as the AEK-971 (5,45 mm) and AEK-973 (7,62 mm) assault rifles, the War Department officially announced in March 2019.

      What do you mean? I noticed a little different.
      In total, within the framework of a three-year contract, more than 150 thousand AK-12 and AK-15 assault rifles are to be supplied to the Russian Armed Forces.

      It will not be enough. Our army is about 10 times larger. Plus, something needs to be placed in the NZ too.
      But I think there will be more contracts ...

          Do you need it? After five thousand shots, the mechanic begins to seize, after five hundred, it is necessary to wipe off the soot and the lag when firing, after 10000 it is necessary to change the mechanics ...

            Have you ever wondered why this is so? Maybe because it is much more complicated than an ordinary Kalash? Well, yes, accurate and heaped weapons always have serious flaws in the reliability of the automation, but the special forces receive a decent apparatus, the FSIN and the MTR appreciated

          AEK-971 and AEK-973 have long been gone, deeply modernized KORD 6P67 (5.45) and KORD 6P68 (7.62) assault rifles are being delivered to the special army units

            Long time ago, this is when? Some strange story with the "overfitting" of one machine gun, for which the Ministry of Defense fought for a long time, but switched to something completely different, unknown. Don’t you?

              Since 2014, the modernized AEK-971 was called A-545, and since 2019 KORD 6P67 (as it was renamed on the ZiD itself). The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation buys small quantities of Kovrov automatic machines due to the fact that 1 - it is expensive and 2 - it is only for special forces.

            Has anyone heard a kind word about them? Not from the "interested persons", but from the servicemen and specialists who actually took part in their tests and approbations?

          In December 2017, the board of the Ministry of Defense recommended for adoption both the "Warrior" systems that passed the competition, Kovrov (5,45mm A545 assault rifle and 7,62mm A762 assault rifle) and Izhevsk (Kalashnikov AK-12 and AK-15 assault rifles). At the same time, it was recommended that the Kovrov automatic KORD-5,45 be adopted only for arming special-purpose units and subunits, and the AK-12 and AK-15 for arming all the main branches of the armed forces.

          And why suddenly they shouldn't have gotten away? Or just in spite of ak?
          Maybe everyone abroad changes their assault rifles and rifles regularly?

        Specialists and maybe even simple mottle shooters will have enough. And the rest can do with simple ak74 :)

        because this is a standard contract - it makes no sense to do it for a longer period - we have already worked out on claims and, for example, offer to take it with a new butt and a new mechanical sight

        Duc is the first order. They will put them on a new contract. In our 80s, all sorts of warehouses in the depths of the USSR were guarded with sks

      Quite rightly noticed !!! After all, everyone has long known that the First Separate Buryat Submarine Armored-Hoofed Division is moving to the border with the extreme first.
      The new AK-12 Kalashnikov assault rifle was rearmed by scouts from the combined arms army of the Air Defense Forces, stationed in Buryatia.

    Much more important is the delivery set of the machine. Namely, the presence of thermal and night sighting systems. How many are supplied? How competitive are they to the sighting systems of a potential enemy, who polls provided and trained not only special forces, but also infantry units to use them? In general, silence on this important issue.
