For those who hunger for the thunder
Bad-Element, one of the more interesting shops specializing in the Afghan/Khyber Pass-style aesthetic, is working on one really different Kalash.
According to Bad Element, the mashup is an homage to the compact OTS-14 Groza (Russian= “Thunder”) which was a greatly modded AKS-74U chambered in 9x39mm, a special subsonic ammo comparable to .300 BLK used by various Russian counter-terror and special ops types in guns such as the VSS Vintorez. The result is a bullpup AK pistol.
The shop says they will eventually offer the pistol as both a kit and a full-up firearm.
