American tuning "Kalashnikov"

The Kalashnikov assault rifle in the United States is very popular, so the local gunsmiths release many accessories for it. There are also special whale kits that can turn an old Kalash into something futuristic.

American tuning "Kalashnikov"

Of all the diversity, AKX1S, produced by Center Balanced Systems, can be distinguished. This weapon - alteration of the Romanian AK-47.

AKX1S is made according to the bullpup scheme. Instead of heavy metal and wooden parts, structures made of composite materials and aluminum were used.

According to the developers, the best that they could "offer for the AK-47 design is a stylish appearance, an improved trigger mechanism and better cooling of the barrel when firing."

AKX1S, like the rest of the civilian weapons, was converted to single-person firing. Its price is $ 310.

      So they can't even decently alter it. It looks as if the tinsmith with a mallet "roof iron" leveled. I can imagine how they improved the shutter and the trigger, judging by the elastic band on the trigger to return the trigger to its original position.

      That this glamorous little thing has to do with the AK-47

      With this tuning, the machine became even more Romanian, but Moldovans would also paint it in cheerful colors. And so, some kind of hunchbacked horse. Well, there is our OTs- "Thunderstorm". At least it works, according to experts, normally.

    This is creativity, fun. And I am very envious of the Americans in this matter that they can have so much fun (buy a machine gun and have fun having fun over it). Buy a Romanian Kalash to be converted into a bulpap, it’s so beautiful to beat the handle on the fore-end of a Romanian Kalash. Young people.

    Just a couple of photos of projects for converting Kalash into a bulpap. How it looks, brutal or not, is the tenth thing. Because how to fight with him, and not to seduce girls with brutality, it is much more interesting to ask how he became with the accuracy of shooting?

      What is this alteration of Kalash?
      This is Korobov TKB-022 assault rifle
      In my opinion, it is no more a rework of the Kalash than the Kalash itself is a rework of the assault gun.

      So, with the "brutal" half of the world they fought! They depicted on the coats of arms of the countries ... And, the girls, they were not seduced, they did not bother with the accuracy of their shooting, and they married the fighters in the photo with "Kalash" (in my time 1980-1982). Right now, the time is different ... Try to offer this "cuttlefish" for use as a component of the national emblem ... Even for Africa. Bruising ...

        I pretend to be shooting from this weapon. I am a retrained early childhood lefty. I mainly operate with my right hand. But when shooting, as he instinctively began to do this from the left shoulder, he could not retrain himself. I suspect that if I hadn’t got a sleeve in my eye when firing from this instance, then everything was alright with the level of adrenaline in the blood. :-)

    In the article, we are talking about the so-called Romanian WASR, a clone of our AKMich.

    In our States, they literally overwhelmed with arms fairs and some arms stores.

    Personally, at the sight of WASRa, a steady gag reflex awakens ... You should have seen how clumsy and careless these WASRs are made, or rather, slabby ... The receiver, barrel and other parts are made of the most disgusting quality steel. Waste quality. Eerie - even by Chinese standards (I compare with AKM clones from the Chinese company NORINCO) - the quality of the surface treatment and the "baked-on" coating applied to them, the disgusting quality of the hardware - with the fibers sticking out of the wood, and finally, " amazing "accuracy of shooting. A friend of mine, a gunsmith, once tested such a WASR in practice - and then spat for a long, long time. At a distance of 50 meters, the dispersion of bullets on the target is 15 cm.
