EXCLUSIVE: Civilian AK-12 Coming 2013 in .223 AND 12 Gauge

    The hottest gun of 2013 could be the Izhmash AK-12. The company is planning on delivering a semiautomatic version in 2013 chambered for .223 Remington and 12 Gauge. The drawings of the proposed sporting models are below.

    This is exciting news. Gun enthusiasts around the world will be lining up to get their hands on the latest AK. In the USA, I am sure companies will be lining up to ink an import agreement (which would probably include some manufacturing stateside to comply with import regulations).
