Kalashnikov Presents Switch-Barrel AKV-521

Premiere took place at Army 2021 Military and Technical Forum

The AKV-521 allows its user to have the option to install 415 or 341-mm barrels chambered in 5.45x39, 7.62x39, and .223 Rem. 
The rifle is split in two major parts:

  • The U-shaped upper combines the barrel, gas action, locking assembly, bolt rails, and a 1913-MIL-STD rail for telescopic sights;
  • The trigger housing combines the trigger guard, mag well, buttstock, and pistol grip.
This design allows for maintaining the linkage between the barrel and the sights when the rifle is knocked apart for maintenance, boosting its accuracy and precision. The switch-barrel rifle has already passed all in-house trials and is being put into mass production.

All videos about the AKV-521 development are available in a special playlist on our YouTube channel.
