BHI SOPMOD AK: Modernized AKM/Kalashnikov for SPECOPS and PSD/Security Operators
The SOPMOD AK looks like an effective solution for U.S. military Special Operations (SPECOPS) personnel and PSD/Security Operators working for private military companies/private security companies (PMC/PSC) who either need or prefer an AKM/Kalashnikov-platform shoulder weapon/long gun that can still accept all of their favorite tactical accessories (optical sights, lasers, tactical white lights, vertical foregrips, etc.) and simultaneously allow them to utilize all of that 7.62x39mm ammo lying around the Sandbox (a.k.a. theater of operations). It would also appear to be a great choice for civilian AKM/Kalashnikov enthusiasts. It's DefenseReview's understanding that the SOPMOD AK will be available in both select-fire (full-auto/Class III) and semi-auto-only variants for military/law enforcement (Mil/LE) and civilian customers, respectively.
