There are a lot of versions, as this automaton “surfaced” for the first time, and from the photographs of these weapons it is possible to say with confidence that the sample is clearly made in different places, the only thing that unites this weapon is that it was created on the basis of the Kalashnikov machine gun in the bullpup layout. The name of the machine was assigned to one of the samples, which was seized, according to the worldwide network, somewhere in the “hot” nations, and where it is not specified. On the withdrawn sample there was a rather neat inscription on the butt plate of the “Grad” butt, and there were also serial numbers. A little later, it was reported that people who were engaged in relatively mass production of these weapons in the territory of Vladikavkaz were detained. Also, a fairly popular version is that this weapon was made on the territory of Ukraine, in general, neither the end nor the edge of the new "facts" and versions are visible to this day, in fact, because this weapon was called the "ghost machine" like he is, and no one produces it.
It is noteworthy that, already on the basis of a neatly made inscription on the back of the gun butt of the weapon and the applied serial number, they immediately rushed to conclude that the weapon was clearly factory-made. Here I would like to immediately note that if you look closely, you can see an obvious reworking of the original Kalashnikov assault rifle into a bull-pap, and reworking with minimal changes to the design. So, you can pay attention to the fact that the usual AK is taken, the handle is taken out in place of the forearm, but what remains is hidden by a rather ill-conceived detail that does not even stand for the shoulder on the trunk line, which could have a positive effect on the accuracy of fire. Naturally, they did just that, because otherwise they would have to make a stand for sighting devices so that they could be used without arching the neck in unnatural corners. Nor should we forget that very often the artisanal weapons, the production of which was single, also had serial numbers stuffed simply from the head. And even more often on such weapons it was possible to find inscriptions indicating that the sample belonged to the products of a well-known company, and the quality of such weapons very often indicated the opposite.
There are even several versions of which cartridge was standard for the weapon. This is the list of 5,45x39, 7,62x39 and 9x39 ammunition, and, apparently, the information about the 6x49 machine gun appeared from the Internet community’s submission; For some reason, the “legendary” knives filled with mercury are remembered. In my opinion, with the calibres of this “ghost machine” it is easy enough to figure out what kind of AK or even some details could be obtained for those cartridges and vargani sample, although even in the version under 9х39 it is difficult to believe, but what can they not good tool ...
Some options generally cause a smile, since in them, apparently, holding the second hand is planned for a rather low-volume PBS, after what shot with intense fire you can smell the kebab can be argued in the comments under the article. In general, it seems to me that this sample can be counted as a very big stretch, and generally how a sample can be considered a serial one, if it is not made by a separate enterprise or a group of enterprises, but even in well-equipped underground workshops. Let even the automata be with serial numbers, which may even be needed not for beauty, but for some kind of accounting and not at all the fact that they did not come from an AK donor, although it is unlikely that people involved in this will leave their “native” number .
In general, we are collecting any information on this sample. Perhaps, I made wrong conclusions somewhere or missed something. Nevertheless, the fact that even underground manufacturers of weapons, and domestic ones, paid attention to the bullpup, says that for many compact dimensions more important are the flaws that even such a simple remake of the weapon gives.
