What can you tell us about this "kord" multicaliber design?
I have been looking at degtyarev website for no avail
Although tokar-2 is not there too
Spasiva in advance
Edit: is it an evolution of 6P67/68?
Yes it's an evolution of those. You could actually see the 6p68 clearly ar several points In the video.
Nice hinger on trigger assembly group
On a related topic, is there anywhere i can read about what is the actual origin and story of this rifle and what is the current state of it when compared to the recent AK12 in Russia?
Kord-5.45 is a factory name of the 6P67 balanced action assault rifle. Kord-7.62 is 6P68. Those two are similar in design but system is not "multicaliber" as you cannot convert one to another
Not yet. to the best of my knowledge, at least not in English. It's gonna be covered in my upcoming book, though.
I see. Looking forward to it mr. popenker.
Not many info about a lot of non mainstream russian guns on the net that is in english.
Thanks. It was a good read and really well written article.
Anyway, i have a few questions. Why did the ratnik program requirement was to have a 2 round burst instead of 3?
to get the most of the 3rd burst, you need a cyclic ROF about 1500-2000 RPM
at 900-1000 RPM, typical for balanced action rifles, optimal bustr length is 2 rounds. It was calculated long ago, back during research stages of the Abakan program
