AMD-65 by Drake-UK AMD-65 by Drake-UK
Taken with a stock Canon 300d.

Pictured is an LCT AMD-65.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

AMD-65 (Hungarian: Automata Módosított Deszant 1965; Automatic Modified Landing Assault) is a Hungarian-manufactured variant of the venerable AKM rifle for use by that nation's armored infantry and paratrooper units. The rifle's design is suited for outdoor use as an infantry rifle but can also be used from within the confines of an armored vehicle as a fire support weapon.

This is possible due to the side-folding stock of shaft design that makes it more compact. The barrel is also relatively short for the 7.62x39mm cartridge.

The 12.6-inch barrel does not require the bulbous muzzle chamber of the AKS-74U but does use a specially designed muzzle brake, which attenuates muzzle flash while aggrandizing the sound.

The AMD-65, along with the earlier AKM-63, have been largely replaced in Hungarian military service by the AK-63, a more traditional AKM copy with a lower manufacturing cost.

Man we use this shit. I hate it. It's heavy the the stock is uncomfortable as hell and the front grip is a joke I mean it's really uncomfortable.
But I have to admit that is easy to use, reliable and compact with the shorter barrel.

The picture was nice tough.

I can agree on the stock its pretty lame but I guess like alot of weapons it was designed for a specific purpose/role and nothing else.

From what I gather the front grip is angled forward for the purpose of aiding recoil control and as not to interfere with reloading.

Comfort probably wasn't high on their list when they designed it :D
