The Ak 5 (sometimes AK5) is the Swedish version of the FN FNC assault rifle with certain modifications, mostly to adapt the weapon to the Swedish climate. The Ak 5 is the standard weapon of the Swedish Army. Ak 5 is an abbreviation of automatkarbin 5 (literally translating to automatic carbine 5, "automatic carbine" is the Swedish term for assault rifle). The rifle is also known as the CGA5, literally: Carl Gustav Automatic carbine 5. The Ak 5 replaced the Ak 4 (licensed HK G3 copy) in Swedish service.
There are several specialized versions available: the Ak 5B with a telescopic sight and a shortened version, the Ak 5D. A modified version of the Colt M203 grenade launcher can also be attached to the Ak 5. This setup is simply designated Ak 5 med granattillsats meaning "Ak 5 with grenade [launcher] attachment".
User Reviews And Comments
It's light compared to the AK 4 (modified G3). Accuracy and reliability are great as well. The AK 5C and AK 5D are very comfortable since the shooter can change the length of the butt stock.
