    The AK-308

    Presumably this was developed with an eye to the export market?:


    On 21 August, the first day of the Army 2018 defence show being held in Kubinka near Moscow until 26 August, a new Kalashnikov assault rifle chambered for the 7.62×51 mm NATO round was unveiled to the public. This most recent addition to the latest generation of the Kalashnikov family of rifles has been designated as the AK-308.

    The military 7.62×51 mm round has been derived from the commercial .308 cartridge for .308 Winchester chambered AK-pattern semi-automatic rifles of the Saiga series, designated as the Saiga-308, which have been available on the civilian market for over a decade.

    That's a nice rifle. Free float barrel, optic ready, cleaning kit in the grip with the sectional cleaning rod in the stock. The Russians seem to finally be grasping ergonomics along with already having the most reliable rifles on the planet.
