Improved barrel rifling.

I like the part which says: "The AK-12 has classic configuration, which creates a constructively simple automatic rifle with an option to mount powerful muzzles and large magazines"

Does it have a Picatinny rail on to which you can strap a Rottweiler?

I thought all the 74's were pressed receivers. Which would make 5 gens:

AK47 (7.62x39, milled)
AKM (7.62x39, pressed)
AK74 (5.45x39, pressed)
AK100-series (7.62x39, 5.45x39, 5.56x45, pressed)
Ak-12

90 deg gas port over the old AK 45 deg which was shaving 5.45 jackets

Izhmash is doing pretty good after their huge success selling us the SAIGA rifles and shotguns that come into this country in a sporting configuration for legal reasons and then can easily and legally be made into their original configuration with US made parts.

I love my saiga 12! Ugly but goes bang all the time!

Sure hope they figure out how to import them in a sporting configuration.
