Azerbaijan to produce AK-74M “Khazri” assault rifles

    The Azerbaijan Ministry of Defense Industry have licensed the AK-74M design from Russian AK-maker Izhmash and will be producing it domestically. The rifle will be called the “Khazri Assault Rifle”. It sounds like it will feature accessory rails for lights, lasers and optics.

    It is interesting that they did not decide to adopt the older AK-74M instead of the the newer AK-10x line.
