Polish fireamr manufacturer Fabryka Broni Radom (FB Radom) unveiled for the first time at DSEi their new range of civilian rifles. The Aktyn Radom Sport family consists of three rifles which are semi-automatic versions of thier military counterparts:

  • AKS assault rifle (7.62x39mm)
  • Tantal assault rifle (5.45x39mm)
  • Beryl assault rifle (5.56x45mm

These rifles all feature a slightly longer receiver which allows for a quick release picatinny rail that sits above the dust cover. This is the same system that is used by Polish Beryl assault rifle. The extended rear section of the receiver is also reinforced, allowing a variety of stocks to be attached. One other improvement over the standard AK design is a larger T-Shaped magazine release.

The photos below show the AKS model.

Note the magazine release.

I am very pleased to hear from REMOV that FB Radom will have a booth at SHOT Show next year. Hopefully they will find a firm in the US to partner with to distribute these rifles. One stumbling block, at least for civilian sales, is the restriction on the import of what the BATFE classify as non-sporting rifles. If a local firm could manufacture the receivers, then part kits could be imported and the rifles assembled stateside.

Many thanks to REMOV for providing me with information and photos.

    Firstly stop calling USA m16/m4 3-shot mode assaulting rifle. Like Beryl 3-shot mode it is just a self shooting weapon. I think, nowadays, even good old ak(or ak47) is NOT the assault weapon.

    Why? Because most of U.S. soldiers dies, because of jammed rifles and of course IED's, Guy with ak have NO chances against U.S. trained marine with bullet vest, and of course against the most powerful weapon - phone to air support.

    Nowadays ak, more than 50 years old weapon should be treated as a part of history, and in normal countries You can buy them and legally possess. Of course REAL ASSAULT weapons like rocket launchers or tank/armored van car mounted machine guns are not easily to obtain and legal by usual persons...
