New AK modernization kit

Kalashnikov Group developed AK modernization kit that allows use of modern red dot sights, which substantially increases combat effectiveness. It is a drop-in kit which allows converting any stock AK-47/AKM or AK-74 rifle into a bit more modern weapon making it more adjustable and suitable for accessorizing. this kit consists of a number of new parts, including a new muzzle device, pistol grip (housing the cleaning kit) and safety selector lever. It also features a new handguard set which adds top and bottom permanently attached Picatinny rails and allows mounting rail sections on its either side.
The upgrade kit also includes a railed dust cover which seems to be hinged much like that of AKS-74U (Krinkov) rifles. It also looks to have a more rigid dust cover locking mechanism. As you know, the dust cover on an AK is not the most stable part and simply equipping it with a rail makes it not the best platform to mount a scope on. However, this solution from Kalashnikov should be a much more rigid construction. It also retains a rather minimalistic rear iron sight. The new telescoping folding stock should also be a nice addition to the good old AK platform.
Although this kit makes the rifle look like the latest version of AK-12, it doesn’t convert the gun into an AK-12. Right now, this kit is available for the military market only. In fact, some Russian military units already use it.
