AK337 by AlexJJessup AK337 by AlexJJessup
Tried to do a more modern AK that still says "bad guy." Didn't really want to go the "tactical AK" route, since that's really common and easy (though awesome). Mostly used existing parts, then just spent time changing to fit together the way I wanted, and also look a bit more custom. Top two stocks are my design to match the look of the rest of the gun, bottom one ran out of time so it's just an M249 stock.

Hope you like it!

*Note* - Firearm enthusiasts, my guns are designed with an inclination of form > function, more like what you would see in a modern-day FPS. I take some liberties at points, but I try to keep it as real as possible. Feel free to point out any major errors I have made!

Very nice rifle . This reminds me of my game where futuristic and modernizes AK rifle was the standard weapon of EU-Russia coalition . Even through it was not as futuristic as the weapons of other factions it was not even less deadly . On the contrary . The reliability , simplicity and powerful bullet were outmatching the other rifles , which were vulnerable to weather conditions , they had uneasy maintenance and so on .

That should be 7.62x39. 7.62x51 NATO is to big for AK magazines.

My friend , bigger does not mean better . You know 5,45 to AK-74 even through has a lower caliber than AK 47 and M16 deals much more grievous wounds than 7,62 and 5,56 . That's because of the unique bullet construction  . Check this on wikipedia .

he just stated that the 7,62X51 is too big to fit what seems to be a standard SK pattern Mag. he implied the difference in sizes, not bullet lethality

Somehow the sniper version has strong similarities to the Dragunov

I'd say the 5,45x39mm round would make more sens for the shape of the mag, and for tactical purposes. 7,62x51mm or .308 it's way too much rounds to be used by undisciplined militias.

Wow, these look really nice. 
There's one thing about them that wouldn't work, the dust cover goes over the area that the selector plate moves in, so it doesn't get pointed straight up, which would cause the rifle to fire if it's already been cocked.

Though you could probably get away by saying: "There a plate in the trigger group that is stationary, and doesn't allow this."

Keep up the good work!
Cheers.

can't even believe i'm now getting around to writing a response to this picture. I must say Alex, you've out-done yourself with this piece! multi-platformed master-piece, my only wish is that one day you'll do the same modeling with the H&K G3

As a former soldier in an Eastern block army, I had an AK 47 of the series 72. I really like your design of the squad support variant. What I always missed with the AK 47 is a handle on top to hold it in your hand while running. The handhold part between the magazine and the barrel doesn't allow you to hold the gun in a balanced way. So, you simply grab it somewhere else. Your design may eliminate that shortcoming.

No, I work for Sledgehammer Games. My AK isn't all that original looking tbh, so it doesn't surprise me that there are other similar designs.

I see that these use NATO rounds. Does that mean that the US and its allies have FINALLY adopted the AK platform? (at least in this future)

Hmm... Looks pretty good! But as you asked for flaws, here's one: you wrote it uses x51 NATO cartridges, but the magasin has got the thickness of the original x39 ammo. It wouldn't exactly fit.

 I've always just loved the loveable and classic style of ak variant rifles. This would be amazing to see in real life, sadly it may never happen. All of these variants are awesome, especially the sniper variant and assault rifle variant. The mg variant definitely looks really portable and lightweight, and that's always good in a combat scenario, where you don't want to get weighed down too much.  Nod

An AK with 7.62 NATO rounds ? AK gas system is going to be really up to it´s limits...if you kept the 7.62X39 or the 5.45X39 would have been ok.

There is this company that makes cheap sporting AKs for sale in the US, I can't recall their name right now.

The Magazine on the AK337 is the wronge scale for a 7.62x51mm Nato. the Sniper variant has the right size.

Great work love the design  but 7.62x51 NATO isn't normally used by AKs, rounds typically used are 5.45x39 or 7.62x39. If you ever make another AK design in the future you should look into the AK74M, AK-100 series , AEK971 , AN94, and AK12.

It's a fictional setting, where this was developed and chambered with 7.62x51 NATO in mind. I know that currently that's not the case.
