    Re: Iranian AK's

    Depending on how deeply you get into variations ,it is a copy of the the Chinese type 56 with copies of the East German MPiK pistol grip and stock. It is not known if they received Chinese machine tools/dies to make these or if they reverse engineered them. They had received a large number of EG MPiK's , North Korean Type 68's, and Chinese T-56's before and during the Iran/Iraq war. There was a thread a ways back that went into some detail, at least as much as we have been able to scrape together, but I could not find it.

    So it could be a copy of a copy of the original? I love that kinda stuff, it's hilarious. They do that with Chinese missiles and vehicles, too.

    Re: Iranian AK's

    Is is posible that it is a 56-2 type of stock, but no one has come up with any pictures as of yet.

    Re: Iranian AK's

    I've got some photos somewhere showing the production of these in an Iranian factory. From the photos, it looks like they've got Chinese parts (underfolder struts, buttframe, etc.) and work on them a little, then assemble them onto rifles.

    Re: Iranian AK's

    Found this.

    KL-7.62

    The Iranian state arms conglomerate Defense Industries Organization (DIO) currently manufactures a 7.62x39mm Kalashnikov-type assault rifle for the Iranian armed forces, which is designated KL-7.62[4]. The KL-7.62 is an unlicensed, reverse-engineered copy of the Chinese Type 56 rifles which Iran purchased from the Chinese government in enormous numbers to equip its forces in the Iran–Iraq War. The original version of the KL-7.62 was indistinguishable from the Type 56, but in recent years, DIO appears to have made some improvements to the Type 56 design, adding a plastic stock and hand guards (rather than wood) and a ribbed receiver cover (featured on most AKM variants, but missing from the Type 56).

    Doesn't look like one of their upgrades were a threaded barrel.

    Re: Iranian AK's

    Chinese export rifles I've handled didn't have any threads on the barrel at all.

    Re: Iranian AK's

    Some of the Chinese "export" rifles don't but it seems like a great many do.

    Yes, the Iranians have made a copy of the Chinese Type-56-2 sidefolder. I can't say for sure if that's the one with the designation 'KLT' though, but I'm assuming it is.

    I had a picture I snagged off some news website a while ago, showing an Iranian minister of some kind holding one of these sidefolders, and the picture's caption read something like 'Iranian minister [name] posing with an Iranian-made copy of the AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle'. If my memory serves me, the article from which I took the picture was about the growing Iranian armaments industry. Sadly, I lost the picture and the link to the article when my computer crashed a while ago.

    Re: Iranian AK's

    Speaking of Iranian AKs; here's an interesting picture showing a female Iranian militia unit of some sorts, armed with what might be those ultra-rare full-auto Iranian or Chinese double underfolders:




    Another pic from Iran; perhaps this is one of the KLT rifles? Could of course be Chinese too, but the color of the furniture strikes me as maybe a bit too dark, compared to the usual Chinese Phenolic. It has the typical non-ribbed Chinese receiver cover though [contrary to the ribbed AKM type in the Diomil pictures], as well as a non-threaded muzzle :

    Re: Iranian AK's

    Here's another *interesting* Iranian concept; an AKM with a 'Nader' underbarrel 'mini-RPG' rocket launcher. Can't help but wonder if they considered the back blast this thing would generate;
