This is the new mechanism operating method invented at Izhmash that uses a new system for both feed and ejection of the cartridge in the AN 94. It uses both recoil action and a gas piston system in combination to operate the mechanism. In effect, the fully free floated barrel of this rifle actually recoils, and "shifts the pulse" to delay the recoil to the shoulder of the warrior firing the weapon. This, in theory, allows for more shots on target without having to reorient the weapon as often. It has a built in "double tap" two shot fire sequence that can be either semi automatic or in fact, the double tap can be fired in sequences of two shots at a time under full automatic mode. We will bring you more on this interesting development as our investigation of this weapon continues.

You boi's did a good job on this. I still think the rifle looks like an AK and I like the 40mm grenade launcher. Again good job boi's.

little brother and ryo have been searching for some time now for a new rifle to do a series on. as our past history of this shows, we hope, our standards for this are quite high. we have gone through dozens of different weapons in the past few weeks looking for that just right one to do a series on and we believe we have found a good one in the Izhmash/Nikinov (sometimes spelled Nikonov) AN 94 GP-34 A. please note the very interesting looking suppressor/muzzle brake combination system. this is so unusual looking to us we are investigating further and will get back with what details we can find on this.

ryo and little brother agree with you. we would also very much like to own one of these weapons as it is available also chambered in the NATO 5.56mm x 45mm as well as the 5.45mm x 39mm Russian, however the RF has no plans, as of this date, to market this weapon in the west. the weapon currently arms many of their Special Forces groups as well as the MVD, and their grand plan is to arm the entire russian army with this weapon.

Blowback Shifted Pulse mechanism. Inside, this weapon is completely different from any AK ever designed. also domo arigato goziemasu for your very kind words.

Good write up

Extremely interesting rifle. I'm not sold on the caliber, but the design of the rifle is intriguing. Do you (or does anyone) have any idea on how it feels to fire such a rifle where the barrel recoils? I've shot the Browning Auto 5 shotgun, & never liked it at all (that's why I fell in love with the Remington 1100 the first time I fired one). However, there's a vast difference between firing a 12 gauge & a 5.45x39. The possibility of using a 60 round mag in an assault rifle should get everyone's attention. It would very probably also get the attention of anyone at whom it was being fired! The two shot "double tap" (or two shot burst) is quite interesting, especially since it can be used when the rifle is set to fully automatic. I don't understand how this works in fully automatic, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to do so.

then no, nobody here would have fired one. the russians are being very stuffy about this rifle, and even though it is being manufactured to be chambered in several different rounds, one of them is the 5.56mm x 45mm NATO, even though they have no plans to market this rifle in the west. a new designate marksman's rifle is in the works that will fire the very powerful 7.62mm x 55mm russian round. also you should read up on wikipedia about this 5.45mm x 39mm russian round. there is more to this round than meets the eye. you might just be little bit impress neh.

first apparently you have not enabled your pm mail for people here to send you pm mail. got error message that said did not have permissions for pm mail. it usually mean one of two thing, either you have not enabled your pm mail for people to pm you or the blank blank blankety blank blank mail system is on the fritz again neh.

to answer your first question, no, in fact it fires from the closed bolt position.
