Yup. It is short for Automatkarbin, and AFAIK the Ak4 is a G3, whilst the Ak5 is a modified FN FNC 80.

correct you are Huff. I own a Kreb 103 and other than in range and assecories it outclasses anything my AR15's can do. Its a shame the FNC wasnt selected over the M16' all things considered it was a superior weapon and with typical refinements over its service life would have remained that way.

That weapon is featred prominently in the Encyclopedia of Modern Small Arms. Seems a decent weapon, but I saw no mention of its maintentance or modification abilities(ignoring the basic collapsible butt)

From what ive been told about the AK5, its a tad slower to take apart than the M16 but easier over all to clean. Is more reliable in any case because of the gas piston system and not that ridiculous gas impingement nonsense.

You know what's even more reliable? A K98.
