"Kalashnikov" offered elite special forces new machines

Concern "Kalashnikov" offered the special units of the Presidential Security Service (SPB) and the FSB new "adaptive" AK-400 assault rifles, the newspaper reported News with reference to a source in the DIC.


"Kalashnikov" offered elite special forces new machines


“AK-400 machines were presented at the end of last year at a meeting organized by the Presidential Security Service. Products are interested customers, but as long as they study them. There are several options for both the "Soviet" 7,62-mm cartridges, which AK-47 and AKM fired, and for more modern 5,45-mm ammunition, "said the source.

On the machines, thanks to the Picatinny rail, you can install any sight, laser designator or flashlight. In size, they are smaller than the AK-12, but not inferior to him in accuracy and accuracy of fire.

"AK-12 is weapon infantry, paratroopers, scouts. And the special forces soldiers need a more compact machine, which, on the one hand, is not inferior to the “twelfth” in accuracy and accuracy, and on the other, is small enough so that it can be used to storm houses, airplanes, trains and buses, jump with a parachute and walk in the forest, ”said the source.

The newspaper notes that little is known about the new weapon, “in particular, the length of the machine guns is approximately 940 mm, the weight is slightly more than 3 kg”.

It is also reported that "the" four-hundred "has a new fire mode -" Trim ", when for one press of the trigger the barrel releases only three bullets on the target."

It is also known that they are equipped with “a telescopic butt, which the shooter can shorten in seconds, or lengthen, or even fold to one side, making the machine so compact that it can be easily handled in a car or even hidden under clothes”.

        ------------------
        The article claims a length of 940 mm, which somehow spoils the whole impression. Maybe messed up or what? I thought that the machine for special forces should be more compact. And with cartridges like that I have doubts. Usually they use less powerful cartridges (with a lower bullet speed), such as pistol rounds, when it comes to storming rooms. And then the usual ricochet cartridges and everything, the bullet should stop in the body, and from such a short distance, five to ten meters will pass right through. In general, something in the article is wrong or I did not understand anything.

          There is a folding butt, telescopic. And the ability to use cartridges of caliber 7,62. In the body, of course, it is guaranteed not to get stuck, but it will not give a critical rebound in the room. But 5,45 can.

      It is good that there is movement in this direction. This is a plus.
      But it is perplexing to try to give out restyling of the good old AKs for some breakthrough ideas request
      We made a body kit, which they have been flaunting at exhibitions for the last 10 - 12 years, which guys on business trips have long been buying for their own and "modernize" AK in the field hi

      TTX of the AK-400

      Caliber: 7,62 × 39 (5,45x39)
      Barrel length, mm: 942
      Weapon weight, g: 3,1

    It seems to me that the AK-400 appeared as opposed to the A-545 ... the question of which machine will be equipped with the Ratnik has not yet been resolved. And therefore, different versions of the AK will be offered. equip AK-12-mi.
    And then this story with contests and disputes has already dragged on, and the soldiers continue to run with the AK-74.

    In my opinion, this is really an AK-74, but modified in terms of ergonomics and the possibility of "priblud" mounting. The mechanism is the same, but a modified compensator, which, according to experts, reduces recoil by 15% and improved accuracy when firing in long bursts. Its resource is also 10 shots.
    The meaning of its appearance is an alternative to AEK 971 or it is the new A 545.
    In AK 400 there is no balancer like AEK 971 and A 545.
    The main drawback of AEK 971 and A 545 is the wedge after 2 shots due to loosening of the hairpin connecting the balancers, which move in the opposite direction, and remove 000 of the 3 recoil factors (which you will read).
    In addition, it is more expensive to manufacture and more difficult to maintain. Consequently, this machine is not for long-term databases in isolation from the artillery workshops (you cannot sell it to "lumps" - they will break and dispel anti-advertising) and not for conscripts.
    The creators of AEK 971 and A 545 move them into the SP, saying that 2 shots are enough for the SP.
    And AK wants to get the whole order for machines.
    In my opinion, a monopoly is harmful and there should be an alternative. But the wedge of this stud must be dealt with.

    Oh, these stamps! A spetsnaz soldier cannot be elite and non-elite. He is simply either a fighter of a special service, or a motorized rifleman, or a specialist in a specific VUS. And "elite" assumes machines with rhinestones "from Swarovski". It seems that the article is from some non-traditional "glamor". "More modern 5,45mm cartridges" - half of Russia was born later than the 5,45x39 cartridge appeared. “The newspaper notes that little is known about the new weapon,“ in particular, the length of the assault rifles is about 940 mm, the weight is a little more than 3 kg. ”I hesitate to ask, how long is the AK-12?
    When will this end, scribble from cretins on, in general, a special resource? Where do VO editors look? After all, the article, frankly, for Murzilka.

    Instead of a sector sight, the AK-400 assault rifle is equipped with an entire aperture located at the rear of the receiver cover. As with samples AK-102, AK-104 and AK-105, the front sight was transferred to the gas block. In this regard, the developers of the AK-400 borrowed the decisions of Finnish gunsmiths, introduced in Valmet Rk.62, which was adopted by Finland back in 1962.

    ... and asks: "for mushrooms - for berries" ...

    That is, special forces - they "go" into the woods, and they need an AK-400; but motorized riflemen, scouts and others "don't go there", and the AK-12 is enough for them.

    I wrote about this news yesterday.
    And now in fact. The photo and video show a new version of the AK-103-3-M, which can be called either AK-15 chambered for 7,62x39, or AK-400. And you can AK-1000. That’s not the point.
    The receiver is longer in length than the AK-12. The barrel may be slightly smaller or the same, that is 415 mm.
    Sights carried over and so really better. The vent pipe is adjacent to the barrel at a right angle, and not like the AKM. This is all visual data, it is easy to distinguish the remake from the old model. I don’t know what is inside. Judging by the fire translator / fuse, there are no major changes in the giblets.
    Now about something else. All together this is called PR! Why is he and why - HZ. What the AK-12 doesn’t like with the siloviki is not clear. There is an AK-12 carbine, Putin holds one in the photo. Just under the cartridge 7,62. He seems to be suitable for anyone.
    What a shitty thing. If the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Security Service, the Federal Security Service and the Defense Ministry order different trunks ... yes, yes, it’s about favorite unification and economy. It is clear that the army will not get rid of 5,45 for cartridges and barrels under them until kuya and more. And 7,62 are loved by specialists and their colleagues from other structures.
    In light of the fact that the Ministry of Internal Affairs has announced the development of a new Kord-5,45 light machine gun, the situation is becoming completely anecdotal. Behind all this, there may be a banal cut of the dough, or maybe something else. Information is zero.

    As a result - a bunch of chatter, a sea of ​​comments, hundreds of photos and videos and a choral bleating of amateurs on the topic "ah-ah! .." And things are still there!
    Amen!

        laughing There’s another feature that works - to offer as many options as possible, a competitor with one proposal will stupidly be lost, one of several will work (increase the chance - for example, from two machines there’s a 50 to 50 chance, from three already 33%, etc.) and the rule gold toilet - one of the machines should be sky-high, then stopudovo will choose those that are cheaper.

      There is something. In the AK-400, a gas regulator was inserted. Most likely this is due to the relief of the bolt frame, due to which they slightly improved accuracy. But reliability has fallen.

    I have a civilian version of the AK-104 in my safe, a long time ago I installed an adjustable stock, an ergonomic control handle, hung it with piccatini bars, in the presence of a knit optical and collimator sights, an effective DTK, quick-reset magazine, twenty-charge magazines, increased reload handle, shock -the trigger mechanism is upgraded, etc., etc. - In general, I did not know that I have had AK-400 for many years what belay
    Speaking of the "three rounds" cut-off - don't they read foreign specialized press there !? For example, the Merikans a few years ago found out the technical harm to weapons and the psychological harm to its operator of these very cutoffs, and for a long time they have been spending a lot of budget money to remove this function of assault rifles in the troops.
