LCT Airsoft have released one of the most realistic G3 SG1 to date. Much like the real steel version, the handguard, grip and stock are made out of nylon fiber while the rest of the metallic body is made out of steel. This is the main reason as to why it weighs 4.6 kilograms.
The AK 74 or "Kalashnikov automatic rifle model 1974" is an assault rifle developed in the early 1970s in the Soviet Union as the replacement for the earlier AKM (itself a refined version of the AK-47). It uses a smaller intermediate cartridge, the 5.45 39mm, replacing the 7.62 39mm chambering of earlier Kalashnikov-pattern weapons.
