Tricked out AKs at St. Petersburg Open Championship:
wayfaerer320 posted photos of the St. Petersburg Open Championship. The police and counter-terrorism officers are carrying some really tricked out AK-style rifles with plenty of AR-15 accessories added. Magpul stocks are popular (with an AK stock adapter) as are EOTech scopes.

I can see why Izhmash is bankrupt. Their local law enforcement customers are demanding AR-15 rifles and AKs compatible with AR accessories. Yet they continue to do their own thing ignoring customers. The AK-12 is nice, but I suspect their local police customers want either a AK-74/1xx with a nice quad rail and AR-style stock or an AR-15.
