Soviet AKM Assault Rifle by ToxicGas Soviet AKM Assault Rifle by ToxicGas
The AKM assault rifle is an upgraded and modernized model of the AK-47, and is the most widespread of all it's variants. It was designed to be lighter and more reliable than the original and was brought into service with the Red Army in 1959. This example was made in Russia.

*Deactivated, as with all weapons in my gallery*

Let me know what you think, comments and criticism are appreciated. Thanks for looking!

Can I see this on the left side? I like to use real examples for art, and I can't find a left side for an akm like this.

I seriously wish you could have the luxury of owning a functioning rifle. I have a Tula AKM that shoots really nice, and it looks a lot like this. The mag doesn't realy match it though, is it Yugo origin by any chance? I don't think the chinese ones have the spine in the back.

We used to be able to have self-loading rifles until the late 80s, when some dickhead decided to go and shoot up some town in Wales. Then they were banned :( but you can still get a legal AK-type rifle that fires, it's just you would have to disable the gas spring, which effectively makes it a straight-pull bolt-action rifle, and where's the fun in that? Oh well, that's the price of living in a civilized society, I suppose...

Until another reason is made to ban that too. Yeah, I remember seeing about that on a documentary. Sorry for the folks that lost their lives. At least you still have access to firearms. Keep on shooting brother from the other side of the Atlantic! :)

Well I'm not sure about that sort of ban. I mean functionally it's no different from your average hunting rifle, and the legislation in this country tends to be quite sensible insofar as guns are regulated based on functionality rather than cosmetics like some US states. Apparently the guy's last words were something like "I should have stayed in bed today!" No shit mate.

Ah, what do you have? And I imagine it shouldn't take you long to find an AK... if there's one thing you'll always find, it's Kalashnikovs!
