The Kalashnikov concern announced the development of mass production of AK-15 and AK-19 assault rifles

Concern "Kalashnikov" has mastered the mass production of two more models of Kalashnikov assault rifles. This was reported by the press service of the Russian company.


According to the publication on the official website of the concern, AK-15 assault rifles chambered for 7,62x39 mm, as well as AK-19 chambered for NATO 5,56x45 mm cartridge, have been put into mass production. Both models are a further development of the AK-12 assault rifle, which is currently the main weapons Russian army.

JSC Concern "Kalashnikov" has completed the development of serial production of AK-15 and AK-19 assault rifles chambered for 7,62x39 and 5,56x45, respectively, based on the 5,45-mm AK-12 assault rifle

- said in a statement.

As explained in "Kalashnikov", AK-15 enters service with special forces units of the Russian army, as well as other law enforcement agencies. This assault rifle was developed for the Russian Armed Forces and is included in the Ratnik equipment along with the AK-12. The AK-19, in turn, is designed for export, a new version of the Kalashnikov for foreign buyers who prefer NATO standards.

Both models are the pinnacle of the development of the AK system and differ from previous generations in well-thought-out ergonomics, adaptation to all-day use and increased accuracy and accuracy of fire.

- stressed in the concern.

By the way, the AK-12 Kalashnikov assault rifle currently being supplied to the troops differs significantly from the first model adopted for service. The machine has been upgraded to meet the requirements of the military and trial operation in the army.

        Yes, at least 47. A barrel is a barrel, the main thing is to shoot. Now communication is much more important and drones are preferably with a heatpack.

          This is where I disagree with you. AK-47 is a weapon for a soldier. Everything else is money laundering and the rise in price of the product. hi

              In nature, there was an AK 46 (did not go into production), in 1959 it was adopted by the AKM. And between them was AK.

              I can talk about the weapon with which I fought, and it was AKMS. He also fired from AKM, but not in combat conditions. In Chechnya, at the first opportunity, I changed the AK 74 (oar) to AKMS and have no regrets. But the AK-15 raises many questions for me - the receiver cover (subjected to shock) with the Picatinny rail, the intricate butt, and the cleaning time of this product. hi

            “Now I seem to be single. More recently, the Stargorod registry office sent me a notice that my marriage to citizen Gritsatsuyeva was annulled at the request of her and that I was given the premarital surname O. Bender.

      What about warehouses? Produce and gradually re-equip. They re-equip with units or in general with / units. And there are enough weapons in the SVO, starting with AK74SU, AK74, AK74M .. and AK12, even the hundredth series comes across. The mobilized are armed with AK74M and AK12.

    In principle, the differences between AK12, AK-15, AK-19 are only in caliber. But it’s very very interesting why for special forces it’s 7.62, and for the rest it’s 5.45. Is it not a recognition that the transition to 5.45 was erroneous.

      In Afghanistan, special forces used 7,62 mm because PBS was coming to it, but it was not for the AK-74. Probably not much has changed since then.

          A larger and heavier bullet in caliber 7,62 mm, at the same subsonic speed, will be more effective than 5,45 mm. For the same reason, an even larger 9 mm caliber was chosen for the VSS Vintorez.

            And I'm talking about the same! Let them return the "soldier's machine gun" AK-47 and AKMS. And I will say to fans of shooting range from the Kalashnikov concern - you are talents! so to disfigure an impeccable AK talent is needed. On the women of their economy, and not on the fighters. Oh yes, the more lotions, the more expensive! wassat Therefore, you will never create a weapon that a soldier needs, and not a pontarez in headphones. hi

      From 5,45, the recruit will learn to hit the target faster, + more wearable ammunition
      7,62 has a lot of advantages, but learning to accurately hit targets (especially moving ones) from it takes longer

      according to the results of the SVO, the Kalash concern (well, there is no Kalashnikov anymore, so IT’S not even close to Kalashnikov, but oh well) they released the AK-12M MOD (and even the AK-12MSpn, that is, SPECIAL FORCE) .. there was a video on YouTube .. in a nutshell, a diopter they kept it (and everyone who used AK was AGAINST it), but it seems that they eliminated the backlash of the receiver (that is, you don’t need to shoot again after each cleaning). .backlash on the forearm remained and a plug instead of a gas regulator (as, for example, on an old woman SVT-40) ... and yes, to just put a can on the barrel instead of a TDK, you need to pervert with an adapter .. who are interested in looking in detail on YouTube for AK-12M

ON THE LID OF THE RECEIVER !!!! this is a moving part and the sight is constantly knocked off + the butt breaks when using a GPU with an emphasis on the ground + reliability in trench mud is complete shit, you can write a separate weapon kama sutra about cleaning.

    Why doesn't it? Why do you say so? Three upgrades of the AK-12 have already been made, and three more have been developed based on it. Each differs approximately like the T-55 from the T-55M. But reports, diplomas, awards .... By the way, KK has been a private office for some time now. Pure business
