Tuning "Kalash": additional gadgets to the famous machine

101



Gunsmith tuning should not be confused with car tuning: the focus here is not on spectacularity, but efficiency. And the gunsmiths understand the word “tuning” quite literally: in translation from English, tuning means tuning, adjustment. In the army, such improvements will be deemed unnecessary, but athletic shooters and special forces personnel appreciate them for the opportunity to tailor weapons to their anatomical features and special tasks, to merge with it as a whole.

Russian and foreign manufacturers offer a variety of accessories for the most popular machine in the world. Conventionally, they can be divided into three categories (indicated by different colors on the diagram): the first includes those that make the weapon more convenient, the second - changing characteristics of the shot, the third - helping the shooter to hit the target exactly.



1. Anatomical fire control grip makes grip more comfortable. In addition to recesses for fingers and non-slip coating, some handles have interchangeable linings of different thickness, which help shooters with different palm sizes to make weapons comfortable for themselves.

2. The front tactical grip offers a more comfortable grip than the usual “for the shank” or “under the shop”, each of which has disadvantages. In the first case, the hand can slide along the forearm, so the shooter has to squeeze it tightly, which can cause muscle strain and weapon shaking. The “under the shop” grip reduces the frontal projection of the shooter, making it an inconvenient target for the enemy. But in this case, the weapon can only be held with a bent arm, which makes the grip less rigid. The tactical grip solves these problems: by placing it at an optimal distance from the shoulder, the shooter can securely hold the weapon without any extra effort.

3. The reloading handle in the normal version is thin and smooth; when working in a glove, the hand can jump off it. The so-called “barrel” - a snug cylinder with non-skid cuts will help to correct the situation.
4. The fuse / translator of the fire on the Kalashnikov machine does not allow all operations with one hand to hold the weapon without taking it from the fire control handle. The improved translator / fuse has an additional protrusion, resting on which with the index finger you can switch fire modes or remove the weapon from the fuse with one hand.

5.Telescopic butt with adjustable length and height will provide the right "tab" arrows with different lengths of arms and neck. Some butts are equipped with a height-adjustable "cheek", which is very important when shooting long distances. "Cheek" can be plastic or rubber. In addition to improving comfort in general, good material helps to avoid burns in the heat or freezing in frost.

6. The modular brake-compensator (DTK) is a small cylindrical nozzle that has holes or slots in the body. Powder gases escaping through these holes create a reactive force that compensates for recoil and toss the barrel when fired. The arrow less “shakes” and “pushes”, and the shooting becomes more accurate. DTC can be equipped with a "crown", useful in the hard arrest of a criminal.

Cons DTK in that with him the machine rumbles like a natural gun! If people do not use special shooting headphones, they risk a decent contusion. In addition, the powder gases come up and sideways with a powerful jet stream, and if the shooter is working in a group, his neighbor can get a noticeable push from the side or even a burn. Another nuance is the prone shooting: the author of the article personally observed how the shooter with the DTC received a powerful portion of sand right in the face. That is why DTK for the most part is used only in sports.

7. The flame arrester, which is also an afterburner, death tester, and masquerator, unlike the DCT, does not have any openings on the side, but only a large socket in front. The device eliminates the muzzle flash, helping to hide the location of the shooter from the enemy and eliminate the illumination of its own night vision device. Also, a flame arrester partially masks the sound of a shot, making it fuzzy: it will be much more difficult for an adversary to determine by ear exactly where the shot was fired, although the sound itself will be heard. The minus of the flame arrester is that it does not suppress the return and toss of the weapon, and may even slightly increase it. The device is of little use in sports, but it is common in special forces.

8. The silent shooting device, also a silencer, is a type of flame arrester that is used to eliminate the sound of a shot and a muzzle flash. It is much larger than the flame arrester and has only one hole in the front, the same caliber as the ammunition used. A muzzle flash extinguishes completely, the sound reduces to a click level that is indistinguishable from a distance already in 20 m. However, you should not forget that this result will only be obtained by using special subsonic cartridges.

9. Picatinny rail (or more rare analogue - Weaver) is a special system of rail fasteners for installing additional equipment and adjusting its position on the weapon. Most sighting devices have standard mounts of this type. The slats can be obtained as part of a removable side bracket that attaches to dovetail guides on the left side of the Kalashnikov, or simply equip the weapon with parts with integrated Picatinny slats. As a rule, we are talking about the forearm, the receiver lining or the cover of the receiver.

10. The telescopic sight increases the target image, therefore it is good for shooting over long distances, more than 200 − 300. It has an aiming grid with a scale of corrections vertically (at a distance, temperature and air density) and horizontals (at wind, target movement). Amendments can be entered using tactical drums, pre-combining the center of the aiming grid with the point of impact. The minus of the "optics" is that before aiming the shooter must build an absolutely straight line between the eye, the monocular of the sight and the aiming grid, otherwise it simply will not see the picture.

11. The collimator sight does not increase the target, but it does not project a glass mark that indicates the place of a bullet hit. The beauty of the collimator is that you don’t need to build a line of aiming with it: even if the shooter’s eye is not directly opposite the sight, he will still see a mark that indicates the point of impact. Sights can be both day and day / night. The brightness of the label is adjusted to different lighting conditions. The collimator sight is good for distances up to 100 − 200 m. For shooting at longer distances, you can use a special magnifying cap, usually threefold. In addition to magnifying, you can also install night vision or thermal imaging.

12. A tactical flashlight usually has a high light power and, if directed directly into the eyes, can blind the enemy for a long time. Typically, lights are made shockproof and waterproof to withstand vibration from firing and not turn off if the investigator has to work in difficult climatic conditions. They may have several brightness modes, including the stroboscope mode, which is relevant when an employee storms a room and needs to disorient the criminal. Lights are both visible and working in the infrared spectrum and are detectable only in a night vision device.

13. The laser target designator (LCC) produces a laser beam that indicates the place where the bullet hits the target. Distances that a laser pointer can “beat” are huge. LCC, like lights, are visible and infrared. The latter give a mark that is invisible to an observer who is not armed with a night vision device. A spetsnaz group can absolutely invisibly approach the enemy and destroy it with aimed fire using night vision devices and infrared laser sightings. In this case, the enemy does not know that he has long been on the sights. LCC can be combined with conventional and infrared lamps, built into the collimator sights.

        The saddest thing is that all these stray people are for athletes, because it is impossible to use weapons with Picatini straps fastened in the field (they constantly cling to everything, scratch their hands, tear clothes and ammunition). it’s generally better not to leave the shooting range: at night, at the training grounds, you tear off and lose all this crap, you will still not be crippled well. But nothing, it looks beautiful

          With such a canopy it’s very good to go to the base. For authority. And in the trenches, if there’s a lazy shootout. But if there’s an active battle, with all kinds of shooting and from above and from behind various shelters. sights need to be shot after a dozen shots, otherwise there is no guarantee that you will hit. The collimator can be useful at night, but you need to make sure that the mark matches the hit. Any emitters are not welcome at night. It is not known how the enemy is equipped, it will be more abruptly. dit and otreagiruet.Teplovizor fit, but the longer 2 seconds loom stoit.Vo not all need a reasonable approach.

      In the 80s we went on business trips to outposts. At the end of the work, they took a machine gun and went to the seashore to take their souls and shoot. In Atlasovo, all coastal stones were shot as far as was visible. In Vladimirovo, I uncorked a bottle from 30 meters, and my partner demolished a bottle of penicillin. I'm talking about the fact that the machine itself, without any body kit and gadgets, is very intact, even in not very skilled hands. That is the glory of Kalashnikov.

    Laser target designator (LCC) gives a laser beam, which indicates the place where the bullet hit directly on the target. The distances a laser pointer can “hit” are huge.
    That sounds nice, BUT. There is such a thing as ballistics. And according to her, the bullet does not fly straight on the continuation of the path, so the sights and are adjustable in distance.

      The same bullshit is in the army. And this is with the usual AKM in the "basic" version. When you are taken to the shooting range once a week in a comfortable SLOT, you shoot your 10 or 15 rounds there, it's great. And when they started tactical exercises, where this machine gun must be carried all day and not part with it, then, frankly speaking, such "unity" begins to weigh on. And when you take up the guard for three months, too, when the security and security company is training drivers and other things, and for this it is removed from its assigned activities.

    "Another nuance is prone shooting: the author of the article personally observed how a shooter with a DTK received a powerful portion of sand right in the face. That is why DTK is mostly used only in sports."
    That's exactly what I saw. I would have shot myself, and even from AKM, I would have realized that the sand in the eyes and the DTK are not connected in any way. Here, the underlying surface and wind direction have more influence. And the holes in the DTK are just directed not at the ground, but up and to the side. The outlet of gases behind the bullet will inevitably form turbulence with any nozzle on the muzzle and will lift something from the ground. "Mostly only in sports ..." - "not only everything" sounds cooler. About the shell shock - he’s still a pearl. The review is interesting, but the author is clearly not a fighter.

    Installing picatini on the roof of the receiver is still a joke. In the first case, the lid will have any play (even on Ksenia), so that the sight mounted on it will have accuracy plus minus a tram stop. Secondly, if someone really used it, constantly run with you can’t get tired of the overall sight. You can detach the sight from the bar only with a tool and with an obligatory sighting. So that all the show-offs from the picatini on the AK cover go sideways, there is nothing to replace the swallow so far, and it’s not worth it.

      Stupidity in the article - no one uses these teeth as "shock" teeth, poking an opponent in the face of this garbage is not serious, a specialist for "close contacts of the third kind" has a knife and a pistol. In reality, the teeth of the DTK are applicable for breaking tempered glass, but also garbage - one shot will solve all glass problems faster and more efficiently. In general, the show-off is toothy.

    There is a feeling that all these gadgets, or rather most of them, are made for the consumer who buys on "show-off". Made for five-minute campaigns, but not for many months of field operation in the autumn-spring period with rains, mud, tents without a warm pot.

    Often occurs when the collimator is installed in place of an open sight. In addition to the dovetail on the receiver, this is the only place on the Kalash where you can firmly set the scope. Only the picattini collimator does not have a dovetail bracket and is therefore lighter, more compact and more versatile.

    I have the most stable barotrauma of my left ear from my favorite Kalash,
    more precisely - from the notorious DTK.
    It’s very difficult to shoot indoors.
    Short-barrel models have to be used only with
    active Sordin headphones.
    The butt, unregulated on the "cheek" and the absence of
    staffing plate on the cover of the receiver under
    holographic collimator.
    Only tuning saves ...

                The spectrum can be wide (I saw two jeweler users), but the GP is doing irreparable harm to AK. How much is the standard for shooting from a grenade launcher to replace a machine gun now? I thought I could be mistaken from Bonfire 800, after which Kalash was written off (showed how then a training film with a slow-motion shot of a GP shot, so the barrel of the AK vibrated like a rag) And still, well, heavy laughing

    Okay, the presented tuning from the "evil one"
    Star-shaped butt, a little bit to do, as closer to the people. Something like the folding butt of the Italian, Beretta ARX-160, already in use. smile
    The rest, sights on the moving parts of the AK, idiocy. The only thing on the forearm is some wisdom. And what exactly is the GP, and that's all. Sights on the receiver are idiocy .. The main, convenient butt for infantry weapons.
    For "specialists" there special weapons exist, such as VALs, in normal countries in the premises of the MP-5, a kurts with a glushak is used.

    The AK platform, in principle, is not suitable for tuning according to the M4 scheme, so this whole body kit and the functionality is poor I'm talking about rails, etc. and looks like China.
    M4 this Platform with a capital letter. This is a paradise for the gunsmith, build what you want from a thousand options for components.
    I assembled an automatic M4 CQBR with accessories
    Colt / Daniel Defense / Noveske / AAC.
    And my army AK-74M in terms of quality of parts, convenience, accuracy, accuracy, weight, was not near my M4.

    I didn’t read all the comments very carefully, but from my own experience I can say the following about the body kit: 1) The receiver cover with a picatinny rail (from Zenith) is a cool thing, but the collimator on it gets off instantly and loses its meaning, and given that it closes the mechanical sight, begins to interfere. 2) Butt from a normal manufacturer is good. We are mostly given oars here in the Donbass, and you have to move around often in cars, so your personal folding butt + telescope will not even hurt. The rest of the stray from this article is very specific and I personally do not need. Oh, one more thing! Dulniki are interested in contingencies. Did someone use real experience? How do they behave? Interesting.
