Default History of Hungarian AKs - Russian video series

Hello everyone!

Recently I started the project I am very excited about. Here is the short description from the website:

Kalashnikov media presents "Kalashnikov: around the world". For the first time, we will show all variants of the legendary AK that were produced all around the globe in the last 60 years. History, pros and cons, comparison, personal stories and experiences – all of that you will find on Kalashnikov media.

Here is the first video about Hungarian AKM-63:


We will also make a few videos about AMD-65, AMP-69 and one video showcasing the whole Hungarian collection.

What would you like to see? Any tips and suggestions are welcome.

Great video!


What kind of records does Kalshnikov Concern still have?


Any idea on a production figure for AG4 "Bakelite" magazines, years produced, photographs of production,ect


Has anyone purchased RPK-203's?

Thanks. Records are probably lost or classified, but I will try to look it up.

You should ask Molot about RPK 203, they are the OEM.

Excellent teaser video. Full length video would be great. What would I like to see? T1,T2 and T3 would be a good start. Chinese and North Korean AKs would be great. It's not a question of what I would like to see. More AKs & AKMs please. Maybe a bizon.

My browser doesn't support that link/video, but I am sure it is interesting. Why start with the AKM63 and not the AK55 though? Maybe if we keep saying it enough, people will finally understand there's no such thing as an AMD63? and that you can't just slap a fixed stock onto an AMD65 to make an AKM63 hehe.

Hello Mishaco!

Great to see you here, I love your reviews.

Here is the thing, we took a collection of Hungarian AKs, 8 different guns: AK 55, 2 different AKM 63, AMD 65, AMP-69, AMM, AMMS, NGV.

We will make one long video where we discuss every gun in all the details, and three short videos, which just briefly show features of the guns.

So the three most unusual guns I picked for short videos were AKM 63, AMD 65 and AMP 69.
We hope to be done by the end of next week and release the rest. Stay tuned

Nice Vids OP, I saw they shut you down over on arfcom, the AK section there is very slow and you'll do much better here.

Confession: i let the PM box get full. It isn't the easiest thing for me to navigate and reply to, and I don't want to risk using this forum for any kind of business stuffs.

If its not against the rules and wouldn't upset a mod, I could put my e-mail address in my details or tag line. Is that alright?

Others have their email listed on their personal page.
So, why not?

No problem, I think I can send you an email thru the forum instead of PM.

If I dont hear back, I'll visit the brick and mortar contacts.

It's all good.

Here is another episode about AMP-69:



Thanks to ‎Zoltán Szőrös‎ and kalashnikov.hu for all the info.

There will be three more episodes where we will talk about the whole collection in details.

Here is the first episode of the full video where we talk about the whole collection in details.
This one is about about Hungarian AK-55 and AKM-63 - history, personal experiences, markings, and why AKM-63s had a such a weird looking green stocks.



Are you guys OK with subtitles or you would prefer the video to be dubbed in English?

Very cool educational information shared. I still think the AMD brakes are the best bang for the low cost $$$.

I had no idea they used plastic as far back as 1965 in these countries.

Looking forward to more of these , thanks for sharing.

I personally don't mind reading subtitles in English, however it really depends on your target market and what you're looking to get out of it.

Nice to know not to trust Hungarian surplus polymer. Best to stick with wood.
