More than one way to skin a bear
So, the Russian arms firm of Molot is taking old SKS-45 and AKM rifles chambered in 7.62x39mm out of arsenal storage and re-barreling them to sell in that country as hunting arms. This is mainly due to import restrictions imposed in recent years by the Bush and Obama administrations which have basically cut off the supply of arms from Moscow to U.S. shores which flourished briefly after the end of the Cold War.
As 7.62x39mm is highly regulated, as are modern rifles, the AKMs are neutered to fire semi-auto only and both them and the 1950s era SKSs are being chambered for the very fat Techkrim 9.55x39mm (.366 TKM) round.
On each the barrels are only partially rifled– meaning they are actually shotguns.
