There are lots of different guns in the ak-100 series of guns i think they range upto ak-108 or something similar.
The main differences are from what i understand that some models in the 100 series have recoil compensators which reduce the recoil of the guns and
make them more controlable.
There are also other difference vs the ak-74m such as the guns are made to a higher standard using the latest and advanced gun manufacturing
techniques similar to those used by H&K and FN in western europe making the gun more higher quality.
Also becuase its built to higher standards then the 74m they also inturn have better accuracy then the ak-74m.
Those are basically the difference.
It's a very decent gun even venuzuala has purchased something like 100,000 ak-103 assault rifles for it's armed forces.
Here's a picture of Hugo Chavaz with his brand new Russian made AK-103:
so basically to sum up what i said above.
- They are built using the latest manufacturing process similar to machines used to make h&k G36, M16, FN P90, MP5 etc....
- Some models have recoil compensators to reduce recoild and increase accuracy. The recoil compensator is internal to the gun i think its a type of
weight that moves in the opposite direction to the recoild which neutralizes the majority of recoil using gases from the ammunition.
- built using latest materials like polymers and plastics.
- Higher quality barrells comparable to western assult rifles like m16, G36 etc...
I think that basically sums these guns up. thumbs up from me for the ak-100's
