Here at Quicksilver Industries we think the AK is a great weapon platform. We all love that clunky fire selector, large magazines and the mule kick. But there's always room for improvement, right? The original AK isn't all that ergonomic, is it? It isn't all that accurate, is it? It isn't that advanced, is it? The Hyena is.

The Hyena is advanced in every way possible. As usual, the weapon is completely ambidextrous. An integrated laser aiming module has become our standard nowadays. So what's mostly special, you ask? The package as a whole. The Hyena comes standard with QSI's latest design: a MetalStorm ARL®, All-Round Launcher. It's extremely easy to switch between anything you want to fire with it, ranging from shotgun shells to grenades to even stun rounds. Your choice.

The second thing that makes it special are the optics. The rear sight, when flipped down, feels really similar to your standard AK sight. (Except it's illuminated. Of course.) But when flipped up it's an extremely useful red dot sight. You'll love it.

Quicksilver Ind. produces top of the notch firearms made for easy and cheap mass production, while maintaining very high quality. Our firearms will always be fully ambidextrous, two toned, operator-friendly and accessory-friendly.

I love this one! That's some M-14 upper rail usage right there. :headbang:

Now I just wonder how to reload the underbarrel...

Thanks! The under barrel attachment is a metal storm based shotgun, so all you have to do to reload is replace the barrel.

And here I am with out a good "In Soviet Russia" joke.

Either way, this is a good update on a tried, and true weapon.

Yeah well it doesn't resemble much of an AK anymore though, does it? :p thanks anyways :)

Actually, remove that underbarrel and it would look quite similar to an AK-series rifle.

How is this at all any more accurate or ambidextrous?

It has a charging handle, ejection port and fire selector on both sides.

Does this have only 8 moving parts like the original AK?

Avtomat Kalashnikova no need ergonomic, advance or accurate, comrade Shockwave. glorious bullets of motherland shall guide themselves to target.

just kidding, impressive work as always! i love how you gave the AK that tacticool look without making it look square-y like most tacticool AKs out there. really nice design!

Interesting. Why the notched grip?
Shockwave9001's avatar
Shockwave9001Hobbyist Digital Artist
For extra grippyness? Haha
