    Rifle Dynamics introduced the Quickhatch pistol at the beginning of the past year and until now it was available chambered in 7.62x39mm only. Well, the company has just announced that a version of the Quickhatch chambered in 5.45x39mm is now available too. Let’s take a closer look.

    Rifle Dynamics @ TFB:

    Welcome the newest member of the Rifle Dynamics family.  The Quickhatch fills the specialized role of PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) in our line up.  Taking inspiration from the original AK PDW, the AKSU, we wanted to build something similar in size but also taking advantage of modern gear and accessories in mind.

    This special edition Quickhatch is chambered in 5.45x39mm to truly bring about a modernized Krinkov.
