There Are the 5 Most Dangerous Rifles on Planet Earth

The standard weapon of the Russian Ground Forces is the AK-74M. Developed in the 1970s as a replacement for the iconic AK-47, the main difference between the two weapons was the use of smaller, lighter 5.45-millimeter ammunition.

The rifle has a side folding stock, 16.3-inch barrel and an overall length of thirty-seven inches.
