The AK-63 is a Hungarian copy of the Soviet AKM assault rifle that is manufacturered by Fegyver- és Gépgyár and this weapon entered service in 1977 to replace the old AMD-65 that entered service in 1965. The AK-63 is the same as the AKM, except the AK-63 doesn't have the same pistol grip like the AKM. The AK-63 is used by several countries including Croatia, Hungary, Iran, Iraq and the State of Palestine. During the Iran-Iraq War, the Gulf War and the Iraq War the Iraqi army used AK-63s.
