    Kalashnikov 12

    The Kalashnikov Concern has reported that its 5.45 mm AK-12 assault rifle has passed all military field tests.

    The military field trials confirm that the weapon meets all the design and operational requirements of the Russian Armed Forces, according to the company.

    This paves the way for the acceptance of the AK-12 as a standard individual weapon in the Russian Ratnik (Warrior) future soldier system.

    With a 5.45x39 mm chamber, the new assault rifle is one of nine new firearms developed for the Ratnik programme, which also include a 7.62x39 mm assault rifle and dozens of pieces of combat equipment.

    Development of the AK-12 began in 2011 as a private venture by the Kalashnikov Concern (formerly Izhmash).

    Based on the AK-200, the AK-12 prototypes were presented in January 2012. While first generation AK-12s with improved ergonomics passed the trials, the Russian Armed Forces required design changes and expected the weapon to be less expensive to manufacture. As a result, the second generation 5.45 mm AK-12 rifle was introduced, based on the AK-400, with a simplified design.

    It was teamed with the AK-15 assault rifle with a 7.62x39 mm chamber and 5.45 mm RPK-16 light support weapon.

    In parallel with the development of the AK-12 and AK-15 for soldiers equipped with Ratnik, the Kalashnikov Concern also developed the AK-74 rifle upgrade package. This includes a folding and telescoping stock; a receiver cover, handguard and forearm with Picatinny rails; and a more ergonomic fire selector and hand grip.

    Mr.Trudeau,you imported thousands of unvetted m “refugees”and paid $10M to a terrorist. We are struggling to make ends meet yet we are obligated to pay for this privileged class so that they can eat this country alive from the inside.

    The first 2 initials alone will get this prohib status in Canada. There was no reason to ban the ones they did in 1995. The Mossburg Blaze 47 comes to mind when I think of how trivial they can be. That's my 2 cents anyway,I always hope to be wrong in these situations

    It's going to be interesting to see if the AK 12 (200) or the A-545 becomes the standard weapon, they're both in field testing
