AK 100 series

In the mid-90s on the Kalashnikov Concern based on well-proven AK-74M began to develop an export version of the machine under the most common in the world of machine-gun ammunition, 7,62h39 mm, 5,45h39 mm 5,56h45 mm NATO. The name of the new modernization awarded AK-hundredth series.

The main differences hundredth AK series, in the types of munitions used and the length of the barrel. Model with a shortened barrel (AK-102, AK-104, AK-105) different from the AKS-74U, their trunks are shortened to only gas chamber, which will fully preserve the gas engine from the "full-size" machine 100 Series. In this case, with butt folded, these machines only about 10 cm longer, cem file-74U, and extra 10 cm trunk can improve the ballistic performance weapon and reduce some of the barrel heating due to its greater weight.

All machines have a series of one-hundredth to one side folding plastic butt and staff side bar for mounting brackets for different sights (optical, Collimator, night). In the production of a new series of machines are widely used modern technologies and materials. A significant number of parts, including sight and the front sight base, front and rear thrust ring handguard, gas chamber, lower sling attachment, lock stock and other lock, manufactured by precision casting method. The buttstock and forend all machines are made of impact-resistant glass fiber reinforced polyamide black.

The main differences are the models 100 Series.

AK-101, AK-102 is designed for the sale of the West. Machines have caliber 5,56h45 mm NATO cartridge maloimpulsnogo performed under SS 109.

AK-103 and AK-104 developed chambered 7,62 mm arr. 1943 g. (this cartridge, "Soviet patron", It is very common abroad).

ak104

AK-101 and AK-103 on the device and the main components and mechanisms virtually nothing from the previous models do not differ AK. Model AK-102, AA-104 and AA-105 are truncated at 100 mm barrel, thereby creating a compact machine, But at the same time (unlike the AKS-74U) it became possible to keep the gas chamber at the same place relative to the treasury muzzle, as in AK-74. This allowed on all machines 100-Series to unify the mobile system and sights.AK-105 mm caliber 5.45h39, It has all the advantages of export models of the Kalashnikov assault rifle, but at the same time, many times superior in combat characteristics AKS-74U, for which it is intended replacement.

In addition to these, major, modifications are available on special order AK-101-1, AK-102-1, AK-AK-103-1 and 104-1 of which may conduct only a single firing; AK-101-2; AK-102-2; AK-103-2; AK-104-2 and AK-105-2, fitted with trigger mechanism from the cutoff line for three shots. Moreover queue cutoff mechanism configured to allow maximum uniformity of parts of the trigger.

Also came out in a series of AK-107 and AK-108 The constructed on the basis of earlier designs, created to participate in the competition program "Abakan". The main creators of new machines are Aleksandrov Yu. TO. and in Paranin. n. , and based design of these machines formed Izhevskie experimental machines AL-4 (It developed in the late 1960s), and AL-7 (later development). Both of these machine featured so-called "balanced" Automatic, on the idea similar applications in the machine AEK-971 Kovrov Mechanical Plant. This equipment allows to significantly improve the performance of weapons when firing bursts of any length, compared with traditional Kalashnikovs, on the basis of which were developed as the AL-4 and AL-7, and AK-107108. In fact, the main difference AK-107 5.45 mm caliber AK-108 and 5.56 mm NATO from Kalashnikov AK and AK-74M-101, respectively, and is a modified design automation, received a second gas piston mounted on its rod protivomassoy, and a timing device, disposed between the slide frame and balance. There are still a number of differences, in particular, Different design fastening receiver cover, but they are less important.

The basic idea of ​​balanced automation lies in the, that the recoil when firing is made up of a series of pulses. Of these, the first time a pulse of the shot, received weapons, while the gate is still locked. This is followed by an additional pulse with the impact of the slide at the moment of its arrival in the rear position, and finally - the oppositely directed impulse on the arrival of the slide in its forward position after the recharge cycle. And if the impact of the shot can be somewhat reduced by an effective muzzle brake, it is quite a significant boost from the collision of the bolt group to the receiver in the rear and the front position to put out harder, and they make a rather strong perturbation in the provision of weapons when firing, impairing the accuracy of fire. To eliminate these pulses in the design of weapons introduced additional "balancer", moving towards, opposite to the movement of the slide. The mass of the balance bar equals the mass of the slide, and speed due to the presence in the structure of the synchronizer in the form of a conventional gear (gears) It is equal in magnitude and opposite in meaning, so that the pulses of the bolt group and the balancer are equal in magnitude and opposite in sign, i.e. the total momentum zero. In the extreme positions of the mobile assembly of its elements do not collide with the fixed elements weapons, and to each other, mutually blanking pulse, which in conventional weapons transferred to the cabinet and the arrow in the form of additional components recoil. The result of the application of this design is, that when shooting bursts on weapons in general, and the arrow is actually only affects the recoil momentum, caused by the shot (the total momentum of the bullet and propellant gases), to the same - effectively reduced muzzle brake, which greatly improves the accuracy of fire in an automatic mode,. According to various sources, effect of the use of such a scheme can improve the accuracy of fire bursts at 1.5-2 times as compared with the AK-74M. In the same time, Weapons design is only slightly more complicated, especially in comparison with weapons, in which to improve shooting accuracy adopted lafetirovannaya automation scheme (eg, Machine Nikonov AN-94).

The characteristic type of weapon with a balanced automatics, having greatly elongated forward gas piston tube, just by the need to hide in her moving back and forth opposite the bolt group balancer.

AK-107 and AK-108 differ from each other only in the cartridges are used. Automation is built on the vapor circuit with a long stroke gas piston and the additional balancer, having your, second gas piston, moving in the opposite direction. Synchronization of the bolt and the balance is carried out by means of vertically extending therebetween gear. Besides, structure introduced in the original item, excluding the rebound of moving parts at their parish in the extreme position, corresponding to the front position of the bolt (at the end of the recharge cycle). Locking barrel by turning the bolt, similar in design to the gate Kalashnikov AK-74.

two return springs are provided in the structure - one is in the usual place between the rear wall of the receiver and the slide frame, and the second - between the slide frame and rocker, and compressed therebetween when opening the shutter.

The trigger mechanism as a whole is similar to that on the Kalashnikov assault rifle AK-74, but it introduced an additional fire mode with the cutoff line for 3 shot. Fuse - translator fire mode is also traditionally "Kalashnikov", but does not 3, a 4 the fuse - automatic fire ('AB') - all of 3 chuck («3») - single shots («From»).

Plastic accessories in black, collapsible stock and open sights are borrowed from the AK-74M.

Modernized AK continue the glorious history of machines created under the leadership of Kalashnikov . AK Series 100th produced by JSC "Izhmash".
