This is one fugly rifle.....it looks like after they finished the design development, someone said...."what about the pistol grip? Who forgot the pistol grip!!!"









Advantages

The "Abakan" is very accurate at the 2 round burst mode. Furthermore the penetration power is increased by the second shot which hits almost the same place a the first. Ability to use underbarel grenade launcher and the bayonet-knife at the same time. Low recoil power.

Disadvantages

Unlike the AK-74 the AN-94 "Abakan" isn't simple at all in assembling, disassembling, and maintenance. Furthermore has lower reliability in unpleasant conditions and need accurate care. It is expensive to train solider to use the "Abakan", it takes long and it's maintenance itself is expensive comparing with the AK-74. The rifle has quiet bad ergonomics while the pistol handle and inclined in a vertical plane magazine are uncomfortable to use. The buttstock folding into the right side closes the trigger and a safety-lock when it is in folded position. This negative feature allows to fire only when the buttstock is pulled off for the right handed shooters.


So.........my answer......Get a SEAK !!!

Yeah I was reading Campy's post on MK hugging tree's and scratching groundhogs under the chin and saw referance to the AN 94 maybe replaceing the AK in the future. But Russia is broke. Whats the break down of parts look like??? WD

Shotgun news had a good article about this gun a while back. Very detailed.
