Less charitably, manufacturers would offer consumers options packages under a new model name. Enter the ATI AK-47 Strikeforce Elite Ultimate Professional Stock Package with Scorpion Recoil System. [Press release after the jump.] No doubt ATI’s bits and pieces help create a wonderful gun, addressing some of the “modern” AK’s inherent flaws. Wait, are they flaws? I consider the AK’s simple not to say simplistic unburstability the gun’s biggest selling point. This looks a bit . . . delicate. OK, ugly. Does that matter? For those who eschew tacticool tchotchkes, yes. For [unofficial] members of ATI’s elite ultra-mega-professional strike force, well, the free market has spoken.
