    Question ID this Assault Rifle



    I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

    Looks like an AK74 receiver.
    I don't recognize the gas system though, nor the receiver cover, nor the furniture (other than the SAW pistol grip).

    Galil, or some variant, maybe? Or possibly one of the Finnish variants?

    The reciever is the wrong shape to be either a Galil or a Daewoo.
    The stock is also wrong.
    Externally the shape looks a lot like a SAR-80 but the reciever is all wrong for that.

    Well, let's put down what we know:

    1. AK style receiver
    2. 223 or similar sized cartridge
    3. M16 type rear sight
    4. M16 type flash hider
    5. Galil style bolt handle
    6. Tapco SAW pistol grip
    7. Pseudo HK style buttstock

    I am starting to think it's a prototype or a WECSOG.

    I can't argue with that.
    I still can't place that gas system, and the top of the receiver looks all weird.

    Top picture is a 22LR , which is different from the one on the bottom.

    Do you say so because of the funny looking mag? It looks like an AR-15 mag adapter with an AR mag in there.
    Also, the bolt doesn't look different from a normal bolt (well, no more different than the rest of it), but I guess it could be a conversion kit.

    I would have guessed it was an AR-15 mag in an adapter though; I've never seen .22lr mags for anything that actually looked like a real AR mag, especially not for something that appears to natively use AK74 mags.

    Famaldehide Face, is this a quiz for us, or are you seeking info?

    If you are curious, too, please provide us the website where you got these pix, if you would.

    Top one looks like a Norinco AK-22. Which is a 22LR chambered AK look a like. But the buttstocks are different between the top example and the bottom one.

    I am thinking one of those home made Pakistan types.

    Neither of them resemble an AK-22 any more than an AK-74. The mags aren't right for .22 and there is no difference in the shape of the receiver.

    I'm sticking with a weird AK-74 type chambered in 5.56 or 5.45.

    The charging handle is vertical and T-shaped like the one on the Swiss K31 and SIG-510. Is this some Swiss rifle, perhaps?

    Hrmm... I'm dashed if I can remember the name, but I could swear it looks just like these old Cold War era rifles that were simplified stamped construction for import sales to allied nations, chambered in 5.56 mm, and could be found quite often in the Pacific Rim nations like Taiwan and South Korea. I remember seeing them in my youth. And as silly as it sounds to say this, there were also quite a few GI Joe figures on the Cobra side that had them for their longarms. :-)

    Of the two separate photos posted, I see no assault rifle.

    No? I see a shoulder fired small arm that fires an intermediate cartridge, and I think I see an autosear pivot pin so it's probably select fire.

    I found a reference on the second one:

    Looks like a .308 Saiga to me, but the magazines don't look like .308... so I would guess .223. Our local store has dozens of these on the shelf (now that the Obama rush is over) and there are some "variants" out there that are somewhat locally made (Monroe, NC) (probably 130 miles away).

    I think Percy got it right. Actually the bottom photo above looks like the one second from the bottom and the top photo looks like the one right underneath with a scope added. 5.56 Romanian Nato. Good work Percy.
