    Russian Base Artyomovsk (Артемовске) currently repairing/refurbishing Weapons

    I recently seen this stamp, which is the the sign of the base in Artyomovsk (Артемовске). Apparently the base Артемовске is currently repairing/refurbishing weapons, verified by Ruslan Chumak.

    nick do you think they are adding side folders or outfitting them like a ak12 or anything?
    seems weird they would just be freshening a 74 tula up, is 7.62x39 even used by them?
    or maybe for export?
    not taking new work

    I want to know if they converted old AK74 and AKS74 to AK74M

    I have seen pics of some that look like early AK74 outfitted like ak74ms.

    Stamp looks like a variation of the window stamp.

    Not sure about that but this is a odd one. Right side scrubbed and arrows point to some kind of stigmas but can't make them out.

    I'm not sure but also seen a few Tula AKMS (mid to late 1960s), both live and demilled.

    My 1974 Tula BFPU project has the same TE prefix.

    Any more pictures of this rifle available?

    No, it is not a real 1959 AKM...likely a toy model. Pakistan fake also came to mind but likely a toy model.

    Edit: Confirmed...it is in fact a toy model scale 1:3 @ 36000 rubles. Modern wonders....
    -47 1:3 .
