Im tired of sifting throught the countless pages of pictures threads to find pictures of AK 100 series rifles, is there a AK 100 series picture thread? If not lets start one. :beer:
Dang you! :mrgreen:Tantal said:That's a 74M, not an AK-100. :grin:
You guys crack me up going back and forth about this. :thumbsup:CumbiaDude said:Dang you! :mrgreen:Tantal said:That's a 74M, not an AK-100. :grin:
See what I mean? I don't even think about it. Modern receiver, "bump rivet" on left side, 5.5 mm trunnion, black polymer furniture, side rail standard - all hallmarks of AK-100 series... 74M, 101 and 103 all have 16" barrels. 74M, and 105 are 5.45. But then you say that it's a 16" barrel AND 5.45 so it's no longer AK-100?
I refuse! You can't make me! Mom said it was OK! 74M = AK-100! :twisted:
Sorry, just had to mention it to an old friend again, all in fun man, hehe! From a practical standpoint, looking at the situation today, you (and your mom) are totally correct since AK74M was the basis for the AK-100 series. However, historically speaking it was not really an official part of that rifle series, which was developed for export (and marketed as such for almost 10 years). AK74M existed before the AK-100 series was devised, and thus 74M (being a domestic military rifle) was never officially classified under export series AK-100 nomenclature by the factory. Including it with the AK-100 rifles now seems quite logical since so many of the AK-100's are now official Russian military rifles, but doing so mistakenly infers they were all developed together as part of the same integrated family of rifles. I know, it's a nitpick but what the hell, hehe! Sorry to deviate!CumbiaDude said:Dang you! :mrgreen:
I know you were just harassin' me, it's all good :mrgreen: You're totally correct (of course) that we should remember that the AK-74M was developed before the rest. It's definitely the mama-bear, though. Anything else is just a recalibered or shortened AK-74M. :beer:Tantal said:Including it with the AK-100 rifles now seems quite logical since so many of the AK-100's are now official Russian military rifles, but doing so mistakenly infers they were all developed together as part of the same integrated family of rifles.

I had a lever-action Romy folder on my Saiga for a while before I went full-retard and spent an extra $250 or whatever to get the AK-100 and install it :wink:akaf47 said:I'm actually thinking about installing an East German folder on the 31-61......would that be a sin???????
Malysh said:My "AK-101" made with an early 3 digit serial number SAR 3 rifle. I couldn't afford the correct engraving at the time. More's the pity :sad: Although I'd like to have it, I couldn't appreciate this rifle more.
It is very accurate using US mfg. ammo.
Did you have to use some kind of shim when you installed the FSB and GB?
Thanks, Doug. You have always been the kindest and most considerate soul.Tantal said:Mike, those are outstanding examples! Thanks for sharing those excellent pictures of your '74's.
Very accurate, too. Of course, the guy pulling the trigger might not be too bad of a shot to begin with. :beer:
