Check out this cute little guy that was recently posted on r/NFA recently. It’s some sorta homemade AK variant chambered in the 7.62×25 Tokarev. The poster that shared it on Reddit claims it belonged to a private security guard in Karachi Pakistan. Remember our Pakistan Gunsmiths post? I bet that baby AK in 7.62×25 Tok was most likely built in the Khyber Pass or someones garage somewhere in Pakistan.
AKs in 7.62×25 Tokarev aren’t unheard of, in fact the guy in the video below made a straight blowback AK chambered in 7.62×25 Tokarev that uses both PPSH drums and mags, pretty cool.
I wonder just how accurate and reliable the above Pakistani AK chambered in 7.62×25mm Tokarev is as well as how strong the chamber is. I’m guessing not too accurate since it doesn’t even have a rear sight. The 7.62×25mm Tokarev round is a hot little cartridge, it’s a bottle necked round with a muzzle velocity between 1300 and 1800 FPS depending on the manufacturer. It was notably used in the Tokarev TT-33 pistol and the PPSh-41 submachine gun used by the Red Army during WWII and many other countries to this day. There is even a 7.62×25mm Tokarev 1911 conversion out there as well.
