The TKB-022 was a series of rifles designed by G.A. Korobov that was manufactured in two forms, a bullpup and a Uzi grip variant.


The TKB-022 came with a grip mounted magazine as a means of making magazine reloading quicker, but was found to have nasty ergonomics for the intended user.


One of the most exotic forms of bullpup rifles, this variant used a unique operation using a vertically moving bolt assisted by a U-shaped rammer/extractor to cycle its operation. Cartridge ejection was through a tube above the barrel forward above the muzzle. Another variant, the TKB-022PM5 which was chambered in the 5.45 x 39 mm M74 round.
