Images of the new AK-521 Kalashnikov assault rifle

Today the first photographs of the new AK-521 Kalashnikov assault rifle in 5.45×39 mm caliber have appeared. Now the machine is being tested.

All that can be said so far from these photos is that the basic design has been significantly changed, there has been a transition to the Aper-lower scheme.

On the machine, you can also see a new fuse – a firing mode switch and a completely new thing for AK, a cover that protects the shutter travel window from pollution.

The machine uses old accessories from AK-12/15.
