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.

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!

This was a Russian military service weapon, which may have seen combat, so it's not suprising it has some wear and tear. It looks like a possible shrapnel dent, though I could be wrong, it could just have been dropped. It all adds to it though, I think. I prefer this to a pristine example generally.

oh...I see, but drop sounds impossible cos' AK's so tough it can survive a Humvee's run over
