Description:

The AK-103 is a modern Russian-built version of the famous AKM assault rifle, chambered for the 7.62x39mm M43 round. It combines the developments made in the AK-74 and AK-74M with a use of plastics to replace metal or wooden components wherever possible to reduce overall weight. The AK-103 can be fitted with a tactical light, laser sight, telescopic sight, night vision sight, suppressor, and the GP-30 grenade launcher. The AK-103 is most likely in limited service with selected units in the Russian army Spetsnaz, due to the good armor and cover penetration of the 7.62x39mm, and is already being exported to other countries such as Venezuela. During the recent Red Mosque siege in Islamabad, Pakistani special forces used the AK-103. Differences from the AKM series include redesigned rear and front trunnions, as well as a 90 degree gas block, AK-74 style front sight block, the use of a bayonet lug and accessory lug, the use of a black ribbed 30-round magazine constructed of phenolic resin (which is AKM compatible as well), an AK-74-type muzzle brake, and black synthetic furniture with a heat shield. The AK-104 is a compact version of the AK-103. It combines features from the older AKS-74U carbine and the newer versions of the AK-74 rifles, giving a more accurate carbine. It is chambered for 7.62x39mm ammunition. The weapon is essentially a re-calibered AK-74M developed alongside the AK-101 as an updated version of the aging AKM and AKMS assault rifles.

    The AK-103 is not only accurate for an AK, but it's accuracy rivals that of the G3, and M-16. Muzzle rise is minimal and as with any AK, it's just keeps firing even under the most extreme conditions!

    It reminds me HK 33 (Germany) I used Hk33. But not doubt ak 103 look way more powerful.

    This is an awsome weapon. Simple operation yet functions as well as any .223. This weapon is known worldwide. I have fired it and thoroughly enjoyed it operation.

    The heart stopping power of 7.62 x 39mm on a modernized AK platform. It doesn't get much better then this.

    I own an AK103 and I replaced the plastic fore handle with a midwest rail handle and is superb.
