CARRIER HAS ARRIVED! ^^
With just one picture, there's simply not enough material to prove it to be real deal, we need more material.
Although folks on CDF are saying it's a PS, and the lack of other photos and the complexity of such a modification makes me think this may not be real.
CARRIER HAS ARRIVED! ^^
@ Equ As Bltzo pointed out I was commenting on the pic posted on the link form Zaabar clip2net.com/s/1C7Rj that it seems is no longer active. Luckily I was able of finding it else where along with another one that is a obviousness PS.
note the missing charging handle the weird magazine and the rails.
This one is no-doubt a Photoshop the sights are G36 optics scaled up and pasted on too the rail.
When Compared too real confirmed pics It's just one more too chalk up too the PS file
WOW!!! your comment is totally inaccurate altogether! round for round ... a 5.56 round DOES NOT have more stopping power than a 7.62. That's a straight out lie or ignorant statement. I've shot both into ballistics gel. Pls refrain from posting myths or half truths. I promise you everything else being equal a round from an AK-47 does more damage to the body cavity than from an M-4 or M 16.
There are a lot of advantages a M-16 or M-4 has over a Kalashnikov but stopping power is not one of them!
7.62 x 39 versus .223 nato
First of all you need to compare same type of ammo!
Standard war-pac era 'ball'ammo for ak has a mild steel insert and so naturally is semi-AP
At short distance .223 creates havoc upon hitting soft tissue due to its extremely high velocity, specially te original (lighter) US round; later SS109 rounds a bit less, but are more stable en give better perforation, specially at medium range.
A normal AK is claimed to be accurate at mansized targets out to 150m; i myself shoot sa hort barreled saiga MK104 at 100m not getting out of pistol size target in rapid semi-auto fire!
can you see, and identify a human at 100m???
why do you think so many nations still use russian style weapons and ammo if they would be less effective?
Theory and reality my friend!
Availability also factors in. For the Record the First Gen AR15 deployed way back in the brush fire wars of the 1960's did yaw and do nasty things but the 5.56mm M16's deployed ( post A1) now lost that ability with a change in rifling and stability due too concern in arctic environments and a change in needs. This has caused the US problems regarding So called Ice pick wounds where the round just goes though leaving little in the way of a wound of Course the way around this is too use the superior accuracy too end the fight with head and heart shots, The current stock of optics allowing superior targeting but the want of better power is part of the reason of the new crop of rounds like 6.8,6.5 and .300 black out.
For the record Yes you cans see and ID a Human sized target at 100 meters in most cases in fact the current service issue are rather close range when compared too some old school the Springfield M1903 for example a Mauser based action firing 30.06 had an effective range of over 600meters since the end of world war 2 ranges of weapons have shrank.

^^^ When you say qualify to 600meters, is that with iron sight or optic sight?
no-name, the qualifications standards from the early 1900's, with the .303 in Commonwealth Armies until the 1950's, and then the 7.62mm NATO until the 1980's, used only iron sights. Optical sights for standard infantry rifles (as opposed to sniper rifles) only became generally available from about the 1980's and 1990's onward. I remember he Elcan 1.5X (?) sight being introduced in the early 1990's, and the Brits had already received the SA-80/L-85 5.56mm bullpup with its integral optical sights sometime in the mid or late 1980's.When you say qualify to 600meters, is that with iron sight or optic sight?
The USMC Qualified out too 500 yards using irons on A M16A2 until at least 2007.
