A variant of the most popular rifle built by the legendary Mikhail Kalashnikov.
The AK-74 is basically an AK chambered for the 5.45x39mm round, which is supposed to be similar to the 5.56x45mm NATO round that America and its allies use in their assault rifles (such as the M16 series and M4 carbine); as opposed to the AK-47 being chambered in the 7.62x39mm round. Reports indicate that this rifle is less accurate than the M16, but because the AK-74 doesn't have so many inner moving parts, it is easy to disassemble and maintain.
On another note, the AK-74, like its cousin '47, is a commonly blackmarketted weapon by various terrorist factions, mostly in third world nations like Arabia.
"On another note, because of terrorists blackmarketting his weapons, Mr. Kalashnikov is upset about inventing the AK-47, so much that he, supposedly, said, 'I wish I invented a lawnmower....*sniff*'. Naw it's not YOUR fault, beloved commie. lol "
