The AK-74M is an assault rifle featured in Squad.

General Description[]

The AK-74M is a gas-operated and rotated bolt assault rifle. It is designed by renown Russian designer Mikhail Kalashnikov and the Izhmash factory in 1991. Originally designed to replace its parent, the AK-74, as the standard service rifle of the Soviet Army, it was later adopted by the Russian Ground Forces when the Soviet Army dissolved. The AK-74M is used by Russia as well as other countries such as Azerbaijan and Cyprus.

The AK-74M has basically adopted all its main features and functions from the AK-74. However, unlike the AK-74, the AK-74M incorporates a glass-filled polyamide folding stock, dovetail side rail, a modified muzzle brake, a smooth dust cover, a new front sight basement, plastic furniture, a reinforced dust cover clamp. The AK-74M is compatible with Soviet/Russian-made underbarrel grenade launchers such as the GP-25 and its dovetail side rail allows the installment of various collimator and optic sights, including the 1P78 Kashtan and PSO-1. Like its predecessor, the AK-74, the AK-74M uses 5.45x39mm cartridges.
