AKM-63

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The AKM-63 and its successor variants are Hungarian clones and derivatives of the Soviet AKM manufactured by FÉG. Hungary originally adopted a domestically manufactured milled receiver AK as the AK-55. In the early 60s, Hungary copied the Soviet AKM and applied several Hungary-specific modifications to the AKM, creating the AKM-63. Later Hungarian Kalashnikov rifles were themselves derived from the AKM-63, and maintained traits that can be traced back to it.

The most distinctive trait shared by almost all Hungarian AKs is their distinctively shaped grip.

The AMD-65 (Automata Módosított Deszantfegyver; loosely "Automatic Modified Paratrooper Weapon") is a modified compat version of the AKM-63 made for use by specialist troops like paratroopers and vehicle crews. The AMD-65 featured a shorter barrel, a muzzle brake, and a side folding stock.

The AMD-65 is the most famous variant of the Hungarian AKs, due to its distinctive appearance and more widespread availability in the United States compared to other variants.

AMM

SA-85M - 7.62x39mm

The AK-63 F, known in Hungarian service as the AMM (Hungarian: Automata Kalasnyikov Modernizált Magyarosított, literally "Hungarianized AKM"), is a variant of the AKM-63 developed by Hungary in the late 1970s and adopted in 1977. Compared to the AKM-63, the differences are the handguard, which returned to a more conventional AK-47-styled handguard, like the original AK-55, and the AKM-styled slanted muzzle brake.

These changes made the AK-63 almost completely identical to the Soviet AKM, but they could still be distinguished by a few differences: the AK-63 rifles retains the distinctive straight pistol grip of the AKM-63, and the handguard of the AK-63 lacks the palm swells of the Soviet AKM. The wood also has has a bright, laminated blond finish like the AKM-63.

Variants of the AK-63 include the AK-63 D (see below), and the AK-63MF, a modernized version of the AK-63 D with telescopic stock and Picatinny rail. A rare semi-auto only version of the AK-63F, known as the SA-85M, was made for export to the lucrative US civilian market, which was affected by the 1989 ban.

FÉG NGM-81

FÉG NGM-81 with original PKM style flash hider - 5.56x45mm

The Hungarian FÉG NGM-81 was a domestic rifle based on the indigenous Hungarian AK, but built for export. For that reason, it was chambered in 5.56x45mm, though some 5.45x39mm variants exist. The Rifle was built between 1981-1990. The original rifles were only offered with a fixed butt and a wooden fore-end, made in the same Hungarian Blonde wood as the SA-85M export rifle. The folding stock version of this rifle was called the NGV-81.

Due to Cold War prohibitions against Combloc weapons within the U.S. (except those exempted by treaty), the vast majority of the export NGM-81 rifles went to Europe and Africa. Most versions omit the large PKM style flash hider, opting instead for the standard AK-47 style muzzle nut. The FÉG NGM rifle was noteworthy in that it kept the AK-47/Type 56 style of gas block system, with the gas relief holes in the gas tube, not the gas block (as is the case with the AKM and later style rifles). The Gas block itself and the front sight is the AKM style in shape and the rifle takes a Hungarian stamped metal 5.56mm magazine similar but not identical to the Wieger style AK magazine.
