Ranisdeguery's AK300 by cityofthesouth Ranisdeguery's AK300 by cityofthesouth

So I took some liberties with the design after a conversation with the designer. It also occurred to me while drawing that a crazy modular gun would be able to change to longer OAL cartridges so I made the trigger group separate just to indicate that it is a full on Lego gun. I gave it a heavier barrel and a fictional magazine just to make it even a little bit more modern. I wanted more real estate on the hand guard for user-mounted rails as well as grip surface. I concluded that the dust cover - which is not rigid enough on an AK to mount optics - would slide onto the weapon via internal rails and then be secured with the rear pin. The hand guard could then be polymer and also removable or aluminum and rigid. I also used this as an opportunity to keep designing a different selector style. I wanted to make it so that the user could rest his/her thumb on it while shooting and move it back to safe without changing grip - which tends to happen on AR-style selector switches.

oh, and did I mention that you should check my journal?

The departures from AK convention are pretty significant, but a necessary step for modernity.

I do like the front-left charging handle, overcoming one of the AK's parimary ergonomic deficiencies.
Now if only there was a bolt hold-open...
...possibly manipulated using the charging handle, a la G3.

The design sensibility is simple and beautiful.

There is a company that makes an AK with a bolt catch, I forgot the name of it, mostly because some ranges in the US required that the bolt be held open when not in use

Wish I had thought of that. I actually think the AK would be pretty simple to modernize in a lot of the same ways they did monolithic rails and pistons for the AR. I would find a way to attach a rail system to the receiver and simply pin the dust cover. I've wanted to work on an AK for awhile but ..... you know how that goes. And thanks!

Rock on! Actually it does look pretty bad ass - it was a solid design before I got a hold of it which made my work pretty easy.

Might make a hand-drawn 3D version of an AR-17, but I really don't plan to.

Better than I imagined :D The front shape of the mag is awesome. Especially, if someone (like me) likes to maghold a weapon. Although I'm concerned about the lack of cheekrest... But that's just me. The fire selector lever has some interesting shape. Kind of 1911 like. I like that. The changed look of the handguard gives me this "russian" look, which is good for me :> The separation of pistol grip from the lower receiver is also a good idea. Improves the weapon's customization potential. Overall - you're the one that made this concept look aggressive and authentic.

I'm happy you like it and it sounds like you understand why I made the changes I made. I did go back and forth on the cheek rest but didn't get far as you can see.

Nice, my only issue is lack of Irons but of course they would be customed by the user lmao, aside, beautiful drawing.

laziness at its best. I kinda wanted to draw the base rifle though and I might post a hooked up version. I'm not sure yet - got a few too many things going on. Thanks!
