I'll keep buying my AKs from Russia and my ARs from the US. Don't want to upset the natural order of the universe.

Wonder what a U.S. sporter version would look like...

Could be wrong but I'd imagine something like the non-pistol grip kommifornia style AR-15. ...where the grip is incorporated into a fixed A2 stock.

I guess the Russians meant it, that if we started to make their shit, that they would make our shit...

That would be very interesting to see. Although that platform is old, it has been very functional and served very well.

 

I was hoping to see something revolutionary(from both sides)! Not that the current firearms are bad by any means. They have lasted so long and been successful for so long.

With so many good US AR manufacturers these days it would be hard for me to give a rats ass. The link is interesting though MT Predator and the first I've heard of it so thanks for posting.

it likely isnt for our market. , 922r issues, importability issues, and the cost are a major problem with logistics. It is more likely that it is for eastern europe and russian market projected.

It looks photo shopped to me, when the picture is expanded the pixelation is different on the logos.

 

But even still I doubt they are tooling up for production of AR-15s for military use. Its probably for export to those countries the US won't sell to.

Molot making AR's? WTF? Someone just divided by zero.

 

I agree with beef. With the extra costs tacked on from importation, it's going to be hard to compete with the already numerous affordable stateside companies making AR's now.

If they can legally send us quality lower receivers, they don't need to compete on entire rifles.

I guess. But when we have $50-$70 stripped lowers here.......how much cheaper can an imported lower be?

It doesn't appear shopped so much to me as it looks like a standard AR that I could put together at home. I see what look like an Ergo Grip, a UTG non-FF quad rail, and a Miculek compensator. There might be some hidden, game-changing technology hidden somewhere beyond the content of that brief blog posting, but color me underwhelmed at the moment.

This model is intended for the domestic civilian market in Russia. It is only semi-automatic mode. At the initial stage will be assembled from components of Waffen Schumacher (trademark Schmeisser). The barrel and muzzle brake installed production Molot. In future localization of production.

In the above link says that it weighs 7kg, this is wrong, it weighs 3.2 kg.

Will not be exported.

Considering Izhmash has it's own CHF hammer/mandrel barrel machines for 5.56 It would become the first AR with a Cold Hammer Forged barrel to sell below the $1000 price point.

BCM and Daniel Defense both offer uppers with CHF barrels. Buy a complete upper, and slap it on a lower you put together yourself, and it will also be under $1K.

 

Anyway.........where did it say the price of these Molot AR's?
