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!

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.

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

Sorry to point this out! But surely the sniper variant would be an SVK-337; and the SSV would Be an RPK-337.

If Russian, yes they would! In this fiction, it's a US based manufacture making their own version of the AK.

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.

I think the sniper variant should have a more reinforced receiver to reduce flexing of the metal and increase accuracy the same way it is done on the PSL.

I don't think that 7.62mm NATO uses a curve in it's magazines.But you've made it looks quite modern, although it still feels a little too 'tactical' for the Avtomat Kalashnikova.

You've said that you pref form over function, so you've done that well.

Meh, the AK-12 has better form and function, and there's no way the 7.62x51mm will fit in that mag, and I have series doubts about the 7.62x39mm as well, due to the small magazine taper.

That said, the gun does look absolutely gorgeous.

Using 7.62 instead of 5.45? How about no...

It looks as if it was in 5.45mm. The true look of the AK is the one one in 7.62mm: the higher lower receiver which makes it a bit bulkier, yet not the same way as SCAR rifle. Beside, great work, nice proportions, good finish. Maybe you should experiment with pulling the front sight backwards and giving it a bit heavier barrel. The true AK is somehow squarry, not prolonged. I also think that there is a tiny error when it comes to the fire selector: when closed, that's in the upper position, it closes the opening in the upper half of the reciever, both securing the weapon and acting as dust cover. Maybe it' s just me, but it seems that the way that it's drawn it wouldn't work. Try to rotate it around the bolt that holds it and se if it matches.

There's a groove in the elevated rail, you can see that the rail is inline with the front sight. :)

Not to nit-pick but a 7.62x51 is a tad big for this gun.  Should be a 7.62x39 or a 5.45x39.

Sorry to nitpick it's just an irk of mine lol.  Other than that this is an awesome looking firearm!  Cheers mate!

Another great work with the iconic AK. This really sends the AK to the future while still keeping the iconic look. I really think you should finish up the stock for the squad support variant and upload that cause if I know how you work then I think it would look great!
