AK & Variants Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Apparently, and that's from a friend who was deployed in Mali, a lot of accessories mounted on rebels' guns are ACM airsoft parts...

 

Oh there's no doubt.  There's an epic amount of ACM gear (camo, armour carriers etc) floating around Iraq and Syria and the like now, it's super obvious when you look at the pictures.  If they've got modern, western looking scopes and grips in said pictures it's going to be chinese clone stuff meant for the airsoft market.  The SF M900 style light in the first picture for example, not a SureFire and most certainly something I've seen at airsoft shops.

I have problem with my PTS Palm battlegrip when i fit it to my G&G RK74 CQB the saftey is not working.

Didnt work on my Cyma either.

 

Do you guys have any tips on a nice tactical grip for my AK?

I mean, I wonder how many of these guys are really frontline fighters. Or maybe they just don't have time to care.

 

Probably the latter... I mean for us *suitcase* like scopes etc is a hobby... for them, it's not. Here's a vid which is very much the frontline... AK malfunctions but aimpoint (clone?) on a cover mount seems to be ok... 

 

edit: also an acog, again dunno if clone or not

Slightly off topic for AKs, but even Iraqi Special forces are using cloned rails, grips etc to get around import issues of real kit - nice article here:

By tactical grip, you mean, the main pistol grip? Not a front grip, right?

 

If so, I used to have an AMD65 grip on my former AK104. Very nice, very smooth and much more comfortable than the regular AK grip.

Sadly the same regulate mount doesn't work for the SVD. It slides on, although not all the way because of the stopper location and design. That's normal.

 

But it hasn't got enough movement in the add ons to centre it over the rifle. It's useable, but I'll have to get an SVD specific mount for using my vision king

Now you just need Gurlukovich kit for maximum trolling.

 

TBH, I always kinda liked the short mags sold with those models.  Always thought about picking some up.

Hey it's all good, I was just looking at the LCT -74M on WGC so I figured I'd ask.  Sure is a purdy AK either way.
