While the tactical craze may have been largely lost on Izhmash, the official makers of the AK series of rifles, our Russian friends appear to be embracing it. The previous issue of the Russian Reporter magazine featured some very cool AK rifles. Unfortunately I do not know what the title of the article is or what it is about. UPDATE: See the comments below for a translation.

Last year I wrote about some tacti-cool prototype AK-74M rifles that Izhmash exhibited.
