Everything new is well forgotten old 

These are the magazines of the same author - Vladimir Kamzolov. The first one has a plastic case, and the second one is made of steel.

They are from the same project "Poplin"(1971), and have the same index - "M100" (100 rounds 5.45x39). 

On the RPK-16, this magazine is installed to draw attention to modern developments in this direction.

 

And a little more history:

Feels like those companies saw a Discovery channel documentary about guns and heard phrase "AK are cheap and easy to make!" and decided to actually make them.

Rumors of a SCAR receiver with integrated M-Lok have popped up into a local FB group. Though the recent URG-I kerfluffle shows it's hardly a solved problem for the AR-15, the fact that the SCAR  requires new receivers to have full length negative space mounting options (cf the SCAR MREX) is an amusing downside to the weapon, and shows how its design is somewhat dated in anno Domini MMXIX.

Now sink a 14.5" barrel in that SCAR20 reciever.

   The state tests of the Russian pistol for the Ministry of Defense, which is intended to replace the Makarov pistol (PM), have been completed.
   “Testing of a new pistol complex chambered for 9×21 took place from August to December of this year at the test base of TsNIITOCHMASH JSC and Russian Defense Ministry test sites in the Western and Central Military Districts,” reports RIA Novosti press service of the Central Research Institute precision engineering (TsNIITOChMASh). Currently, the results of tests of the pistol complex are under consideration by the state commission.
   It is noted that "tests have confirmed the high tactical and technical characteristics of the pistol, its survivability and ability to function in extreme conditions." "The gun worked steadily in a wide range of temperatures, from +50 ° С to -70 ° С", - noted in TsNIITOChMASh report.

The Romanian defense industry will produce a new assault weapon, the latest generation, in collaboration with the Beretta company, at NATO standards, the completion of the contract being scheduled for the summer, and the beginning of the production in the autumn, Economy Minister Nicolae Bădălău said on Thursday.

 

The weapon will be manufactured at Plopeni, the factory being chosen by the Italian partner, said Bădălău, and for the beginning 30% of the components will be manufactured locally. The minister spoke of a plan to relaunch the defense industry in Romania, which made exports of 120 million dollars in 2017, according to mediafax.ro . A project included in this plan is dust manufacturing at the Fagaras factory, in collaboration with Pirochim Victoria. "We are importing the powder at present," the minister said, saying that a nitrocellulose plant will be built in Fagaras in the next two and a half years with budget credits, which will be the most modern in Europe. After the production of powder, it will be exported, added Bădălău. The minister says the armament industry benefits from a favorable market context due to sanctions imposed on Russia, and among the customers are the United States or India. Bădălau also spoke about the modernization of the Metrom plant in Braşov to produce "NATO ammunition and not only". He admitted that the value of exports could increase this year to 150 million dollars, and with the new powder plant they will grow even more.

Interesting gallery of improvised (and likely illegal) guns. Some of them look like they're props, however, rather than real guns. In any case, here are some of the highlights:

Notice how strong the recoil is. In my opinion, even an experienced shooter will find it difficult to conduct intensive shooting.

And do not say that the shooter is not a professional. Here's a video where a little girl shoots, from Beretta)) Look at the recoil of the gun)

It is smaller than the "Udav".

I specifically gave a link to this video, since the Beretta 9x19 cartridges and Udav 9x21 cartridge are extremely similar in characteristics.

      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?
