Kalashnikovs get new look to boost sales as Russian sanctions bite

Here's another ripple effect of Western sanctions on Russia and the country's troubled economy: Gun maker Kalashnikov is giving its famed weapons and brand a makeover.

Its sales suffering, Kalashnikov on Tuesday unveiled new-look combat weapons. It also said it will introduce clothing and accessory lines.

The launch, which came complete with girls in tight fitting dresses brandishing machine guns, was designed to whet the world's appetite for assault rifles.

Possible configurations? Doesn't look like there is enough curve in those magazines for 7.62x39 ammo, but that's just my amateurish opinion. I'm thinking someone photoshopped these designs. Little details guys... These look like the old Prilutsky Bullpup 1944 designs.

This is probably more like it in the AK-12...
