I dont think so, that seem to be some German HK G-36 rifles

More probably to be something along this line (this is Cugir made rifles exported in US and slightly modified there). Ofcourse, is just my supposition, it may be something totally different ofcourse

AK is not bad at all, if they work a little to ergonomy and put some good solid optic devices on it too it will be still one of the best rifles around. Simple, very reliable, good accuracy, local made, quite light (or similar with other assault rifles) and even short size to carry with a folding stock.

The main change will be probably the cartridge, the new rifle will be in 5,56x45 mm calibre. Not as good as 5,45x39 mm i think, with some advantages and disadvantages over 7,62x39 mm, but well, is the main calibre used in NATO

As usual... he wears the fez on his foot, to say so. But if he impaled himself with that, let's smile a little more: here are my pics from the testing range with one of the new assault rifle from Cugir: http://www.resboiu.ro/2012/04/15/poze-de-l...lt-de-la-cugir/My Webpage

Iamandi the gun you posted would not really be something new as they claim, its a PA md.86 with elements of the PM md.90 and inspiration after IMI Galil ... with updated elements from other rifles... but, I admit I like it! Hope the future automatic rifle would resemble more with this, than with the one posted earlier... who looks different, more distant of his AK origins... but somehow outdated and ugly for my taste... :P

Thanks for pics Iamandi

And well, they keep the AK platform, which is a good one, the most reliable in existance for now.

They put ambidextrous comands, a good point, as well a reinforced cover with a top rail which is not totally removable. This is another good point.

They can put the back sights more behind, near to the end of top cover or rail, i hope they will do that with the final product.
And they will work a bit to weight, i think is a bit heavy. I mean, the rifle i posted in the previous post and which is made by the same Cugir (but is in 7.62x39 caliber) i understand have just around 2.73 kg empty. I hope they will reduce the weight to the new rifle around 3.5 kg maybe.

I know it have a longer barrel (needed for smaller calibres which depend on velocity more then "heavier bullets) but still i think they reduce somehow the weight.

The optic looks good, IOR is one of the best in the world, well, in top there at least, i am sure is a very good scope. Not sure however how much it costs and how many rifles will have that optic scope attached

Many thanks Iamandi! I must admit that I have exceeded my initial skepticism, and I like the new weapon at least in appearance... must see also the weapon characteristics! But thanks to you we have a starting point of this topic!

I think the looks are not that important. Reliability and functionality are more important. They should equip the battalion stationed in Afghanistan with it and see how it fares in day-to-day operations.

Usually, the troops go on the front with weapons they know very well how they shoot.
On the other hand, in Afghanistan they do not really shoot.
