Kalashnikov AK-74M 5.45x39 assault rifle (AK-74M)

The AK-74M (Avtomat Kalashnikova 74 Modernizirovanny - "Kalashnikov's Automatic rifle 74 Modernized") 5.45x39mm assault rifle is a full-scale produced modernized version of the AK-74 that offers more versatility compared with its predecessor. Apart from several minor improvements, such as a lightened bolt and carrier assembly to reduce the impulse of the gas piston and bolt carrier during firing, the rifle features a new glass-filled polyamide stock that retains the shape of the original AK-74 fixed laminated wood stock, but side-folds to the left like the skeletonised AKS-74 buttstock, and also a dovetail side mount for installing various scopes. The AK-74M is a main service rifle of the Russian Federation.
