The Automatski Karabin Model 97 is the main military weapon of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Saritistan. Developed in the mid-late 90s as a replacement for the AK 7.62 M71, the weapon reflects political as well as technological changes; the adoption of the 5.56 cartridge in a move towards commonality with new allies is an example of this.
Effective range (area fire): 600m/656yds
Operating system: Long gas piston, rotating bolt
Feed system: 30 round box magazine
Sights: Rear aperture, front post
Worked on this for a while, it's for an "alt" (read: old nation I forgot about and decided to revive) on Nationstates.
