Rez's Kalashnikov by cityofthesouth Rez's Kalashnikov by cityofthesouth
Keep an eye out for an alternate version on my facebook page [link] coming soon. This gun will be found in the second book in the series called Residue. I am hoping to publish it in 2012, but it looks like early 2013 is more realistic.

My mode of thought goes something like this: AK side rail = traditional optic. Red dot = modern optic. Modern optic = modern AK. Modern AK = side mount obsolete. Modern fighting guns allow for modern fighting techniques like grip, weapon light, modern optics. I would much rather have a modular rail system over a quad rail, but this is what is available today.

Awesome. Very well thought-out "tactical" AK configuration. I'll echo the comments about the US Palm mags though, but they are a mag that looks good in a drawing at least.
Regarding something worth considering as an addition to the drawing, personally I'm also a fan of the modified selector levers with tabs that allow you to use your trigger finger to operate the lever. Most of those levers also come with bolt-hold open notches too, which admittedly is a feature I personally don't care for, but the usefulness of the finger tabs are enough for me to overlook that.

Thanks! I had considered the selector mod as well (plus the fact that it would be dead simple to draw). It sounds like version two is going to get some upgrades ...

I'd also suggest using some other type of magazine rather than US PALM. AK-100 series magazines, metal surplus, or Bulgarian Circle-10 waffle magazines are probably the best you'll be able to get.

That's what I hear .... luckily in drawings all magazines feed 100% reliably and are basically indestructible.

Quite true, but at the same time, you'll always have those people who will say, "If that were real, it would be so..."

Unfortunately, when it comes to firearms in entertainment, I am one of those guys. My girlfriend... I think she tolerates it. She hasn't hit me yet, anyway.

haha, yeah I agree really. But in these situations when virtually everyone hates on a product the company will probably step it up with the next generation. Some companies suck and are perfectly content selling crap because that's what they do, but as the AK grows in popularity it seems to me that a company who cares about surviving will make improvements. Apparently their magazines aren't any cheaper than anything else which makes me think they'll have to do something since there is no good reason to buy their product.

So what you are seeing in this image is the next gen US Palm magazine with reinforced feed lips and vastly improved floor plate, made from polymer discovered on mars which is harder than kryptonite allowing the magazine to be used as a striking tool in emergencies.

Quite true, but you've also got to remember that military-used magazines have already addressed any problem already experienced with past models, as well. ;)

yeah but these magazines actually make the gun more powerful! :shh: AND they hold 357 rounds ..... :matteo: without any added weight. BOOM! That just happened.

I wonder where I came up with 357. It makes it sound like I meant .357 ammunition. But yes ... I win .... this time .... But I'm convinced to use a different magazine for the alternate version, so you win too, but only a little. So there.

yes it sure is. I have an MOE handguard on my AR because A: I don't need to hang a bunch of shit on it and B: I want the gun as light as possible. But most of the companies making rails have got with the program and make their rails modular, AND they weight about the same or only slightly more than the MOE. Rails only where you need them instead of the quad rail crap, totally customizable and light weight - that's what I'm talking about. Now I'm tempted to get one strictly for the cool factor. I don't need a free float and don't want the hassle of installing one, so the unit from Midwest Industries - the modular drop in - looks pretty damn nice.

Which brings me to: isn't Magpul a wonderful company? :P I'm defiantly going MOE, and the best part is that both AFG (Gen2) and VGs fit onto it with no rails. And if you get something like a MARS or one of the more advanced Aimpoints with the laser built in, you don't need any rails at all on the forend. Now if only they made a piston version...

My MBRs have a similar system, with screw-on rails (or the far superior PCAP, which was awesome and never should have been abandoned).

For cool factor I honestly dont think you can beat Magpul.

they are a great company. They are the only company I know of who found the correct balance between very good quality and price. They have high end stuff that I would never pay for, but the handguard rocks and their grip is one of two or three that are actually comfortable. And of course their magazines are the go-to product right now. I suspect they will be for some time.

I don't believe the AFG fits without rails. In fact I wish so much that it did that I e-mailed them and asked about plans for one. The person I talked to didn't seem to think something like that was in the works. That was like 9 months ago though, so something could have changed.

Now, if only they can make some parts for AKs...

I thought the AFG Gen. 2 worked with MOE handguard slots...

I've kinda had an eye on them since I saw a review over the original awhile back when it came out. Since this is a CQB machine, I figured why add the weight. The Parabellum Armament AKARS is a pretty cool option as well. I might have to include it with the AKs in my Gunfighter project.

Absolutely, but it sucks balls to carry it around all day. My brother put together a light weight AR and it weights something like 7 or 7.5 pounds with a 3-9x optic. It sure feels nice to carry a light gun that you can really move with.

It's probably not going to end up on any best seller lists but I wrote it and with ebook publishing being as easy and open as it is, I had absolutely nothing to loose from publishing it. Of course you might read it and hen come back here to make fun of me ... But I can live with that.

With nothing to lose why not then? It must have fun writing it anyway.

When I get a chance I will read it. Don't worry, if it is bad I will be sure to tell you what a terrible person you are.

I'm just joking, I'm sure it's good.
