That's exactly what they are doing. What kicked this off was the CT Carbine with an experimental ARDEC smart optic bolted to it. That optic is nowhere near ready for prime time, but you can't stop stupid.

 

This?

Fresh img of OTs-129. Interesting semi-auto marksman/sniper rifle by TsKIB SOO(of KBP), 1st presented last May at Law Enforcement Advanced Tech Day. Seems Western/reminds of SR-25: upper&lower receiver; appears direct impingement(!?); apparently extensive use of alum; 10-rd 7.62x51 mag

This is most probably a short-stroke piston system. Here is the left side render of OTs-129 minus the sound suppressor, possibly with a longer barrel

This seems to be an experimental short barrel variant of ZiD's ASVK-M (6V7M). Could be chambered for .338 Lapua Magnum (?) cartridge - which is quite popular with #Russia|n snipers & marksman. Also note what appears to be a Steyr SSG 08 / Elite 08 bipod.

Kalashism got his hands on some old HK products.

Comprehendind the Teutonic technologies of the 60's, my head is spinning. A continuous vintage with a bias into steampunk. Soon, there will be a lot of reviews of the rare G3 series. As the saying goes: stay with us.

The next week will be extremely joyful and exciting for fans of the G3 / MP5 series and just rare guns, for I have gained access to a huge number of them.
There are both original rifles and SMGs, as well as their copies from Turkey and Pakistan (and maybe even more).
The most interesting are the Pakistani, because there made many different modifications, created at the POF plant.
To begin with, I tease you with three extremely interesting rifles

IT IS NOTHING.  IT IS NOT RIFLE.  IT IS BEVERAGE CARBONATION DEVICE.  REFLECTED OFF OF SWAMP GAS.  NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

IT IS JUST NEW MUZZLE DEVICE FOR COMPLETELY STANDARD AK-74M!

What is this thing?

In my opinion this is a muzzle brake with the functions of a sound moderator.

He hides the flash from the shot, reduces the kickback and withdrawal of the barrel during shooting, and also slightly reduces the sound of the shot.

Question was about gun itself, but it was answered elsewhere.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
