Hello, I was watching a show on the History channel awhile ago and they showed a AK variant rifle that fired two rounds with one pull of the trigger and had only one recoil. Could anybody tell me what the model of that rifle is? Thanks

Could be that something was wrong with the trigger...it does not make sense...how can two shots come out on only one recoil??? The AK has to recoil for the second shot to come out. Even in FULL-AUTO, it has to recoil for every bullet fired.

Trick videorgraphy perhaps?

Operations of an assault rifle are based on utilization of propellant combustion gases diverted from the barrel bore into gas cylinder. To significantly enhance accuracy of fire the assault rifle uses the blow back shifted pulse (BBSP). The BBSP by nature is a delay of the shock of the firing unit in its rear position in relation to the moment the bullet escapes from the barrel, i.e. while the burst of the first two rounds are being fired at the rate of 1,800 rpm both the barrel and the firing unit are travelling along the guiding rail in the integrated carrier-stock toward its rear. The time before the firing unit compresses the buffer spring inside the carrier-stock above the foregrip and completes recoil cycle is enough for two bullets to escape from the barrel. The operator feels the recoil as a single aggregated shock which does not effect the trajectory of bullets already headed down range and, hence, allows a better hit probability. In the process of firing, two simultaneous actions are in progress: travel of the integrated firing unit inside the carrier-stock and movement of components of the firing mechanism.

WHOA! This AK has a different internal configuration. This is not an average AK to say the least. Anyone have pictures of the inside mechanism of this Abakan? I would be very interested in seeing how it was designed.

The AN-94 (Abakan) is not an "AK" design at all. Mr. Kalashnikov nor his son had anything to do with its design.
