Ugly Gun Sunday
Better late than never; between school, a rare opportunity to shoot, and this; this came last. Anyhoo.....
Another fine Soviet design, apparently based upon the available low-skill, low-motivation labor force availabe, and with New Soviet Man ergonomics: a combination grip/magazine well canted opposite to the natural shape of the hand, combined with a thumbhole stock placed well behind the thumbs reach. As an additional benefit, a sighting system radius comparable to those found on longer barrelled pistols, just to notch down the accuracy even more than the loose tolerances ensure. Not much a surprise this one didn't become standard issue.
