The Yamakov assault rifle (Ямаков), also known as the AK Yamakov, is a Bulgarian prototype assault rifle.

HistoryEdit

In the 1960s, a dispute started on what would be the next service rifle in the Bulgarian army; the SKS or the AK-47. Bulgaria later received some imports of the SKS for testing; as these firearms were still considered rather new, Bulgarian designers decided to start manufacturing weapons of their own, with Mr. Yamakov creating his own. The result of that was this assault rifle. Like most other experimental weapons, there were reliability problems with the Yamakov. Unfortunately, due to the widespread adoption of the AK-47 in the Bulgarian Military, along with decisions by the Warsaw Pact to have standardized weapons across all nations part of the European Union, development on the Yamakov was halted.

Design DetailsEdit

The Yamakov is a bullpup clone of an AK-pattern rifle. The receiver is made of steel. As with most bullpup AK conversions, it cannot be fired from the left shoulder.
