The new AK-107. combined with the Izhmash 60 round quad-stack magazine and the unidentified Russian holosight, make a badass looking combination that has plenty of firepower. The reason the gas tube extends all the way to the front sight is because it houses the AK-107 balanced recoil mechanism.
I cannot identify the rifle in the above photo. I am sure within 5 minutes of blogging this someone will identify it for us.
UPDATE: It is a SR-3 / SR-3M “Vikhr” compact assault rifle. Thanks Dansquadwrote.
