    Bulgarian AKS-74 vs AKS-74U weight?

    I'm just wondering what the weight of the Bulgarian AKS-74 is compared to the AKS-74U in stock forms.

    My AKS-74U with wood handgurads, empty Tula mag, tan Russian sling, triangle stock, and original conical muzzle device weighs 6.0 lbs

    My AKS-74 with plum furniture, empty Russian Plum mag, 74 brake, triangle stock, and no sling, weighs 7.5 lbs.

    So it looks like we're talk about 1.5 pound difference.....
