Oh Yeah Baby…Let’s ‘Rock n Roll’ W/The Russian AK-107

I’m going to dedicate this article to all of you die-hard “AK” guys out there, you should believe me when I tell you- that THIS is the AK rifle that you’ve been dreaming about. The recoil is almost virtually NON-EXISTENT and even on full auto, this assault rifle purrs like a kitten and is just as easy to handle, but with the power of a amazon jaguar ! My recommendation is, as soon as you can…get one of these rifles, it will be money well spent.

Below, I’ll include some history and other pertinent info about the AK-107 for your edification courtesy of Wikipedia. And whatever you do…don’t forget to watch the video…it’s positively awesome!!

The AK-107 is a Russian 5.45×39mm assault rifle developed from the AK-100-series. It features a “balanced” operating system, similar to that used in the AEK-971. In this case, the designation AK does not indicate Avtomat Kalashnikova but Alexandrov/Kalashnikov. The revised designation indicates the incorporation of a new gas system, designed by Youriy Alexandrov, for Kalashnikov-pattern rifles.
These new rifles were derived from the AL-7 experimental rifle of the early 1970s. The AL-7 utilized an innovative balanced gas operating system known as the Balanced Automatics Recoil System (BARS) developed by Peter Andreevich Tkachev of TsNIITochMash that was first used earlier on the AO-38 assault rifle of 1965 that essentially eliminated felt recoil and muzzle rise. The system was modified by Alexandrov, then a junior engineer at Izhmash, and prototypes were produced under the designation AL-7.
The AL-7 was considered too expensive for production at the time and the Soviet Army selected the AK-74 instead as the new service rifle. No further development occurred until the mid-1990s when Alexandrov, by then a senior engineer, was directed to update his design for production as a less expensive alternative to the AN-94. The new rifle differs only slightly from the original AL-7. The AK-107 receiver is not fluted and a three-round burst feature has been added.
