Let's all take a trip back to the late 1970s and early 1980s.  This was the time of punk.  This was the time of despair.   Punk was all about minimalism; strip everything down to a few chords, wear

So what, my 5.56 rounds are groundbreaking too if I shoot the dirt.

But as I was warned by the gunner, the bursts from such a mount with a AN-94 is worse than from the hands. And judging by the core of the dispersion, it really is.

Actually, these photos were brought against the thesis - the accuracy of the two round burst does not depend on the position of the shooting. It really depends.

   Kalashnikov journal article about Manasyan's Avtomat in 7.62x39, that was designed by him in early 50s and tested somwhere in 1953-54. Previously (1952) his SMG was tested and found to be bad and not worth attention. Manasyan's new creation was tested and also found to be very unreliable (like 104 round put through weapon with 43 different problems and failers in one of tests).

Because it is a russian rifle ASVK-M, it does not shoot without a foam rubber roller. I would have wrapped the blue electrical tape on the barrel, for accuracy))

And seriously, the silencer is very hot during shooting.  And the rifle in the factory was painted with ordinary paint, and not heat-resistant and the paint is charred.

Therefore, when the Syrian soldiers of government troops receive these rifles from the Russians, they wrap the silencers with fiberglass cloth.

It is also very suitable for color and it can withstand high temperatures well.

This is Russian SF rifle. Syrians never put suppressors or anything related to them on their rifles and sniper rifles.

   Bullpup, system of "recoil impulse shifted in time", 2-stage feed system (a year before it was implemented by Nikonov on his ASM), ejection to the front above a trigger grip, non-reciprocating charging handle. 3 firemodes - "2" - 2 round burst (at around 2000 RPM), and "O-A" - combined semi-auto and full auto (pressing trigger intil first "step" will fire weapons in semi-auto, pressing it futher will swtich to full auto fire in 600 RPM).

Buttstock with fixator. On the right - barrel in most backwards position. Metal "spoon" is for underbarrel GL-25 and new bayonet.

Magwell for a 60 round mag, planned to be produced for a new weapon, but because it was not ready a 2 metal details were put inside of magwell to use usual 30 round mags.

2 stage feed system, familiar to those who saw AN-94 action inside

Forward/side ejection. If you need to make weapon completely safe, you will need to operate charging handle twice - to clear a round from both chamber and in pre-loader of 2-stage feed system.

      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?
