Information is available on the AK-47 , AKS-47 , AKM , AKMS , AK-74 and AKS-74 assault rifles, as well as the AKS-74U submachine gun and Dragunov SVD sniping rifle.
You will see a variety of weapons displayed on these rugs, but the constant is the Russian assault rifle, usually the Kalashnikov AK-47, and, rarely, the more advanced Kalikov AK-74 which is distinguished by its rusty red ammunition magazine which, when depicted on a rug will be colored in a range of reds, bright red to orange/red.
AK-47s, AK-74s, PKM machine guns, Dragunov sniper rifles, T-72 and T-62 tanks, and BMP-1 infantry carriers are all finely detailed, and look great.

Hi, I was thinking of purchasing a AK74 (the compact model). The price of a Bulgarian and a Russian made rifle are attrociously different so was wondering that how can one tell the difference if the stock is changed (so that a Bulgarian can be made to look as a expensive Russian model). Is there a difference in the weight and colour of the rifle or any other major distinctive difference? Thanks!
Got a question? Got an answer? Let's hear it!
