New Russian AK-74 Replacement Revealed: AK-12

According to our man at, this is it: the new Russian AK-12. “Not so long ago it was announced, but photo was fake,” he writes with a distinctly FPSRussia accent. “Well, there’s new prototype was shown today.” Make the jump to see the gun in the flesh . . .

Our man Leghorn’s contacting our Russian pal to get more deets. Watch this space.

      An unholy union of disparate aesthestic styles. More colloquially: That’s one ugly mofo.

        Ugly but deadly))

  3. avatar Silver says:

    Gotta say…I find it hideous.

    1. avatar Anthony Meruelo says:

      Agreed, it’s ugly as sin.

    Where are the bells and whistles? Can’t have a modern military weapon without at least one whistle and four tiny bells.

    1. avatar Rob J says:

      Looks like it has rails, so we can add bells and whistles.

    find out how much please

    1. avatar Moonshine7102 says:

      Per unit, delivered? Would you like that in dollars or rubles?

  6. avatar Matt G. says:

    My god. Is there some kind of “who can design the ugliest gun” contest that Russia keeps holding to select their rifles?

    Chris, If SKAR doesn’t pan out as a name they can call it the SCAT.

    i think some people are applying western sense of aesthetic here. I’d say its about as pretty as a bottle of unopened, low end potato vodka. sexy as a Siberian grandma. (btw, i would DEFINITELY, buy one.)

  8. avatar Aaron S. says:

    I’ll take one in 7.62 NATO please? Thank you, that is all.

  9. avatar Greg says:

    Well if were talkin aesthetics the AK-47 is the ugliest weapon around but it can be submerged in water, buried in sand and still put 30+1 rounds down range without a hiccup and has for 60+ years, i”ll take that over any pretty little piston operated AR any day

  10. avatar Holdfast says:

    I bet the barrel climb on the 7.62 x 51 model is a real bear.

  11. avatar Deusex25 says:

    Another sweet in AK family!
    Well, it looks ugly, but works well. It is VERY RELIABLE!
    US soldiers were fighting for captured AK-47 in Vietnam… 😛

    No matter beauty or ugly what matter is to do the job,, to kill perfect that is all so if it is reliable and acure so lets take to the playing ground guys

  13. avatar Bufalo says:

  14. avatar Kent Bailey says:

    If the AK-12 is as good as the AK-47 and AK-74 it will be one durable, reliable, and tough weapon.
