Now available | The Vickers Guide Kalashnikov Volume 2
This Second Volume of Vickers Guide: Kalashnikov covers the developmental history of the AK-74 – the Soviet Union’s answer to the U.S. M16 service rifle.
Traditional Soviet and Warsaw Pact AK-74 variants chambered for the 5.45 × 39 mm cartridge are highlighted, as well as subsequent variants, adaptations, and modifications from around the world.
The book also charts the course of the 5.56 mm cartridge in the AK-74 platform, examining the efforts of nations such as Bulgaria, Burma, the Czech Republic, East Germany, Finland, Israel, Poland, and South Africa to convert the quintessentially Soviet AK platform to a NATO-standard caliber.
In all, over seventy firearms are shown in incredible detail to give enthusiasts of all levels a new appreciation for this extraordinary family of rifles.
