The Type 68 is an assault rifle manufactured in North Korea.
The Type 68 is a clone of the Soviet AKM assault rifle. However, it lacks the anti-bounce mechanism that is installed in most AK variants. This means that the bolt and carrier of the Type 68 bounce when firing, sometimes causing it to misfire. Since anti-bounce mechanisms are not hard to manufacture or install, it is not exactly known why the Type 68 lacks this feature. The quality of North Korean rifles is reported to be quite good internally, but externally the rifles are apparently quite rough.
The Type 68 has been made with a folding stock, designated the Type 68-1. North Korea has also produced AK-74 clones, known as the Type 88 rifle, some of which have side-folding stocks or top-folding stocks.
