Home Rifles Coming Soon to an Insurgency Near You (Maybe): Russian AK-12 Rifles Coming Soon to an Insurgency Near You (Maybe): Russian AK-12 By Robert Farago - June 28, 2012 9 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Email [HTML1] So one of the advantages of the new gun over the old gun (AK-47) is that you can hit what you aim at. Now that’s what I call progress! RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Ask Josh: Why Are There So Few Modern Semi-Auto Magnum Hunting Rifles?

That baby didn’t look like it was shooting a pistol caliber to me. Reply They have grenade launchers that attach to a picatinny rail?? Reply Izhmash has gone bankrupt!? Shame. Both my wife and I have side by side shotguns they built and the darned things fire both barrels precisely to point of aim! Most brands won’t do that. Reply Robert, I suggest you do more research before you blabber off so you won’t sound so stupid next time. Take my advice. Izmash is NOT bankrupt anymore. They reformed under a new parent company. Izmash is modernizing their factory. Even before they modernized their factory they always made quality rifles in my experience with owning many of them. The Americans were the ones that supplied the Taliban with weapons, not the Russians. The same weapons the Americans supplied to the Afghans back in the 80’s are being used against them today. Reply The Americans (& Saudi’s) supplied the Mujaheddin with weapons from any nation willing to sell them. China, Czechoslovakia, Russia, Egypt, Pakistan, etc. Russia as a nation didn’t sell weapons but easily persuaded (bribed) military officials did. Reply Point taken. Text amended. Reply I would have been happy with a Normal AK with itty bitty spots of rail on the handguard. It’s good stuff. Quality control is all you need if you want some good accuracy. Also an Ak-107…. balanced action…. yessss! :3 Reply The AK-12, like any firearm is only as accurate as the user. My guess is that outside of SPETNAZ and Airborne units the AK-12 will be in practice no better than the original design. Reply Looks like a great gun. Seems to have little recoil. Looks deadly accurate on full auto. Do we know the caliber? Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!
