AVTOMAT KALASHNIKOVA MODERNISROVANNIY
(Kalashnikov's modernised automatic rifle)

Improved version and a replacement for AK-47 manufactured from 1960s onwards.

The most often used assault rifle on the planet. Despite AK-47's false legendary status (mostly spread by western movies and video games) the AKM is way more prevalent.

AKM's most distinctive feature is a receiver made from stamped metal with milled front and rear trunnions (attachment points for the barrel and stock). It greatly cuts production time and material cost when compared to AK-47 while remaining just as reliable. Stamped receiver is also much lighter.

AKM further improves ergonomics by introducing a stock in-line with the barrel and a new wider handguard for easier grip. This feature together with a climb reducer device on the end of the barrel and a slightly lower fire rate makes the rifle much more comfortable to use than the AK-47.
What gun caused this nasty wound?

An AKM, 7.62x39 caliber.

Huh, no wonder he bled out.
