The Russian maker of the AK-47 unveiled a new rifle on Monday called the AK-308. Chambered in 7.62x51mm, the AK-308 assault rifle is based on the AK-103, with “elements and components of the AK-12 automatic machine,” the English translation of the Russian press release states. It sports a 16.3-inch barrel; weighs 9.4 pounds with an empty magazine; and has a 20-round magazine capacity.
