The ANA we work with recently started carrying these.... no idea where they came from but it is a variant I have not seen here before.

it is the model AMD 65 from Hungary. it was more of a utility model AKM variant that was made more compact for tank drivers, mechanics, etc. it's barrel length is typically around 12" instead of the normal 16" thus makes it a lot more compact.


hope this helps

Hungarian AMD65

The Hungarian Gov't gifted thousands of them to the new ANA.

I've never seen one with the optional factory unfinish.

That might be a Paratrooper Hungarian AMD 63

The AMD-65 has a shock absorber built into the buttstock which this picture shows it does not have.

I may be wrong but I thought this butt stock was only used on the 63 model.

Judging by the condition the rifle is in...I wouldn't be suprised if the shock absorber had fallen off.

You're thinking about the AMP-69, that is definately an AMD65. McM

Well, that sling belongs to the ANA soldier who owns the rifle, but I have plans to bring some slings and bayonets back. Nothing that you can't get at home already, but at least it will have the history. I might not be able to bring a rifle back, but I can have my rifle with a bring back sling and cleaning rod......

I am at Orgun-E.... interesting place for sure.........

What's the ANA, and what is a buffalo? What I'v heard on the history of the AMD65, is that it was made for the paratroops and armor crews. Made in Hungary. Nice little carbine, I'v got two completed, and 6 more in the box to be built. How about scrapping one of those and sending me the receiver?

ANA is Afghan National Army, the Buffalo is that big ugly vehicle behind me.

Damnn I NEED an AMD-65! But my Yugo ain`t paid for yet....

Hey Garand...cool pic, neat AMD!

Question for you, just out of curiousity...your shoulder patches seem to be riding very low...optical illusion, in country mods, or maybe so they will be visible when wearing armor?
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 8:58:07 AM EST
Thank you for your service to our nation, and thanks for sharing the pic!

We take the bottom BDU pockets and move them to the sleeves, so we can use them when wearing body armor. Then the patches get sewn on the pockets.

Ahh So....figured it was something along those lines. I had heard of the adding pockets to the blouse thing (kinda like the Airborne in WWII!), but I hadn't seen any done up like that up close yet.

That type of forward thinking wasn't around in the early 90's...at least not that I saw....
