Experts Test New Kalashnikov, AK-12

by rianews • 1,101,847 views

A team of Russian Technologies' marksmen has tested a prototype Kalashnikov assault rifle, the AK-12. Watch RIA Novosti video to see the weapon in action....

My question is how well can that thing retain a zero if the sights are mounted on a removable dust cover?

+Sergei Ivanovich Mosin There are old style sights mounted closer to the front. Other than that, I guess maybe the dust cover is better locked down.

+michael burke Yeah, standard assault rifle ammo, carabine as you would say. I assume AK12 will be produced in few variations for export however, in 7,62x39, 5,56x45 NATO, 6,8 SPC maybe even... 5,45x39 is basically USSR/Russian analogue to 5,56x45 NATO.

It's not a sub machine gun! the Russians are really trying hard to catch up to the modern m-16 platform.

An AK47 is better then anything the U.S can produce.
Report spam or abuse
Hmm, is it as reliable/tough as the 47? If so, I might consider one when they're imported here (If they ever).
Report spam or abuse
Should be. The AK platforms normally go through rigorous reliability testing so it could be said that the AK-12 is as reliable as the AK 47, especially with the modern technology we have today
Report spam or abuse
All AK's rifle must do the rigorous reliability test before exports, through sandstorms, Tropical muddy rain, underwater submerging, -50°C snowstorms and get drop on solid concrete 11 feet high, if it do pass all of them, it is ready to exports

+Максим Кузнецов к слову, доработанная версия АЕК-971 все же принята на вооружения для спецподразделений. А АК-12 для армии.

+Dmitry Tanuykhin Это поддержка предприятию. Не автомат замечательный.  Но там есть шестерня и есть планка (грузило) с насечками. Очень прихотливое оружие думаю. Все должно быть в идеальной чистоте. АК сблансирован темпом работы автоматики. И небольшими изменениями автоматики. Детали там все те же. Просто выполнены по другому немного. Себестоимость крупносерийного производства такая же практически. Зачем производить ак 74 если есть лучше. А старые пушки можно почистить и загнать ирану,сирии, египту,индии. Они с радостью купят. Ковровци хорошие оружейники глупо потерять кого то в кризис. Оружие нам теперь очень нужно.

Nothing new about this rifle. It's an AK-74 with a muzzle brake. BFD.

Rofl still prefer the Bushmaster AcR, which will soon replace the M16 and M4 in the US Army. Great weapon though, gotta love Russian guns anyway. Go Russia !
Report spam or abuse
No it will never replace the M16 or the M4 the ACR is a PoS. The SCAR on the other hand....
Report spam or abuse
The ACR won't be adopted. It's too expensive and doesn't have enough advantages over a standard M4 for the military to consider it worth the expense.

I noticed the charging handling sticks out from the right side. One can only sling the rifle vertically on one side then without poking the handler

You can actually switch it's orientation, so lefties can use it.

Great ;D It took 20 years for Russian engineers to admit that the Picantiny is better than a side mounting rail :D As a bonus after 50 years of repeating "M16 stock is made of plastick and will break in hand combat" they change wood stock in AK-74 to plastick! Good job :D

So the rear sight has been moved further back to increase sight radius, and a picatinny (sp) rail has been added.  Wow.  The Russkies are finally catching up to U.S. custom gunsmiths and after-market companies :)

It's good to see that the sight radius has increased!

WRONG, the M41A rifle has hardly any recoil with a rate of 15 rounds a second, and can punch through an inch of steel with no problem. It also comes with explosive tip rounds.

Not at all. Look up the wounding characteristics of the 5.45x39mm cartridge. It punches well above it's weight and what you'd expect.

what's the difference between carbine and smg? does it have to be smaller caliber to be smg or 9mm+ = carbine? what's difference between assault rifle and a assault carbine?
Report spam or abuse
Report spam or abuse
A carbine is just a shorter variant of a longer rifle. For example you have an M16 rifle and an M4 carbine, or a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 (Full Length) and M44 Carbine. They are just shorter variants, originally designed for behind the lines roles like artillery crews, vehicle drivers (Or cavalry if you go way back). Nowadays carbine length weapons are pretty standard except for designated marksmen's rifles. In Western terminology a sub-machine gun is any weapon that fires a pistol cartridge like 9mm or .45ACP and is capable of fully automatic fire.

Wait, did I just hear the narrator say that the AK12 was a submachinegun?
