Want an integrally suppressed Krinkov-length AK SBR? I know a guy…
Joe Meaux with Aklys Defense is ready to send his 7-pound integrally suppressed AKSV Velociraptor into regular production.
The Baton Rouge-based manufacturer has burned up the social media pipes in the past week with their Krink-sized shiny AK SBR and was at SHOT Show with a couple of examples in tow.
Developed over the past 10 months as their fifth (hence “V”) integrally suppressed AK design, the prototype on hand was crafted on a Sharps Bros custom lower with a folding stock but everything from the trunnion forward is all-Aklys. The magic is a 12-inch multi-stack chamber system sandwiched around a 9.3-inch barrel to keep a handy and lightweight profile.
“It’s meant for an optimal defense carbine,” Meaux todl me about the Velociraptor which is small enough to fit in a backpack with the stock folded.
