You can kick an AK around the place, and it will work... wont hit ****, but it will work... your Finn version looks interesting though, better accuracy with durability... nice....

Welcome back Lycurgus, you dissapeared when I joined up to the forum.. hope all is well with ya... yea, Tacky is deployed but he has posted recently in between Ops.. Interesting job fairbanks has signed up for... thats the difference between the two?... you guys get badges for everything.... does fairbanks get assigned to Regular units as a the combat air controller or does SF units draw aswell from this pool of target painters??.... Your structures are not fully familiar to me, so apologies if I get lost in the names and stuff....

well the deal with any weapon is that you can kick it around.. the difference is that will
it work at all. its totally different thing with Professional army.
you can arm pro's almost with the gear you like.. but we still have conscription
army here.. and as you all know.. everywhere you go.. there are thease guys who
hardly can tie their own sholaces. here we go trough the basics.. and then
teach em to shoot a the enemy with the gun..
as Tacky earlier pointed out.. no im not professional.. and it shows..
how ever.. i never made that remark aither. the far most of us here
are conscripts. and the RK is functional weapon for conscript army..
it lasts. you cant brake it that easy.. its quite accurate when compared to
many other kalashnikovs out there.. (RK-95 ranking the "best Kalashnikov based rifle there
is in Jane's magazine" few years back)

its far more than the "pro" aspect in our army.. we cant really fund that kind of army..
so it would be so small it doesn't quarentee our sovereignty.

in the end its about the man and the gun.. and fine quality conscript army does it better
for us.

thus the RK.

Yes, its the majician and not the wond thats at fault when things go wrong, but with the upmost of respect to the conscripted soldiers of the Finnish army, theres no substitute for a volunteer Soldier.... They train harder, fight better and are better motivated in the Military.... thats my opinion anyways...

Default АН-94 Abakan and АЕК-971

АН-94 Abakan and АЕК-971
I sow them both on armor vest testing on my ex-occupation. That was awesome! Every(!) bullet of burst(!) hit to the bullseye.
But AEK-971 in my opinion is beter. It's lighter and looking good.
I sow M-16 too. It looks like toy.

Its a bit outdated, but not a bad assault rifle.... however, theres better in the AK range, and AUG and AR15 would have better accuracy specs...

Can you say Comrade Commissar's propaganda:

"designed to destroy live forces and the defeat of assaults against the enemy."

A bit much, but anything to drive back the Facist Pigs from the Motherland!

accuracy is the problem when it comes to the AK series your right the ARs you mentioned have got much better accuracy..... they havent really made an AK upgrade that holds its own against most ARs now...........maybe they should scrape the atempted upgrades a design a new weapon
