AO-63 - 5.45x39mm

The AO-63 is a gas operated, 5.45x39mm calibre, AK-derived twin barrel assault rifle. The weapon has side by side barrels with the right barrel predominant, twin rotating bolts/gas pistons and ejects from both sides. The trigger group has a 3 position selector on the right side of the receiver, the first is semi auto firing one barrel, the second in full auto firing both barrels with a 0.01 millisecond delay, the third is unique as at first it fires a two round 6000rpm burst then one barrel in 850rpm full auto. The magazine is unusual as it has the main double column holding 30 rounds with a single column holding 15 rounds.

As of 2017, the AO-63 assault rifle has been revealed and will be on display at the Kalashnikov museum.

Familiar mock up?

Looks rather like the FN FAL (Lewis Gun mock-up) from King Solomon's Mines (1985) without the barrel sleeve Foofbun (talk) 17:32, 19 May 2017 (EDT)

Dogati firing the fake Lewis Gun. Note the magazine inserted at the bottom which is a dead give-away the gun is not a genuine Lewis Gun. The movie armourers also fitted a Lewis style rear sight.

I'm not sure it's appropriate to put info and stats from the actual weapon here on a page for a fictional mockup of said weapon - Especially when the mockup uses as a base an entirely different rifle in terms of caliber and operation. It just seems a bit confusing. At the very least perhaps said details could be moved here to the discussion page. StanTheMan (talk) 01:59, 30 June 2017 (EDT)

Fixed. Greg-Z (talk) 11:47, 30 June 2017 (EDT)

After all, why should this be related to AO-63 at all? Was it so named in the film? If not, then these references should be destroyed, as it will be the another coolstories of one of these boys "oh, these are two barrels, so it's definitely AO-63!!". --Slon95 (talk) 13:41, 23 December 2019 (EST)

So I checked, and it seems like the only primary-source for this is the IMFDB itself (already then your teens were here, MPM). I would advise erase all references to AO-63, since they do not produce anything other than further confusion. --Slon95 (talk) 12:01, 30 July 2021 (EDT)
