Texas Weapon Systems, a company known for designing and manufacturing AK upgrade parts, have introduced a new series of AK-pattern rifles called IK-100 that are built with extensive use of their parts. Currently, there is only one rifle in the IK-100 series – the IK-103. Let’s take a look at the specs and features of this new rifle.
