Malyuk bullpup out of the Ukraine

An older design for an AK bullpup has surfaced from a trade show in the Ukraine, named the “Malyuk” and coming from a company called Interproinvest. Work was started on it in 2005. Essentially it appears to be an AK bullpupized, with the addition of a smoother magazine retention system, charging handle to the front, full length top picatinny rail, magazine release more of an AR type quick release than an AK one, and trigger group moved forward of the magazine. Other than that, the internals are all Kalashnikov. An article came out in the Ukrainian english version of a Defense Review, skip to page 48 here, or if you just want to read the article directly. Currently it is in 5.45x39mm and 7.62x39mm, the company is interested in contracts with the Ukrainian Army. A good summary of the rifle comes from a Reddit post about it

Slide Fire comes out with AR tube for AK

In a twist with their usual designs, Slide Fire Solutions came out with a completely different approach to their rapid fire bump fire stock systems in the SSAK47-HYB. Unlike their other models for the AK and AR, which have a very simple appearance, this one is actually made from aluminium and accepts aftermarket or standard issue AR platform telescoping stocks and pistol grips. The design wraps underneath the receiver, replacing the previous grip with a setup to accept AR grips. It still has the famous Slide Fire switch that unlocks the mechanism to place it in a rapid bump fire mode, although the new one has much less sticking out than the previous one. And of course, the AR tube allows the stock to be set at normal locking positions, without hindering operation of the bump fire. It also has a QD mount built into both sides. Overall, I think it addresses some of the concerns with their other products in that they alter the appearance of the firearm substantially and look almost flimsy. MSRP is going for $299.95.
