These weapons and support parts are commercially supplied and no US Government TDP will be provided. For the purposes of this effort, the AK-74-type Kalashnikov Assault Rifle is defined as follows: One (1) AK-74-type Kalashnikov Assault Rifle with fixed stock and approx. 16 inch barrel The following accessories are desired as part of the weapon system, although CCNJ, PMSL and CCDC-AC recognize that the availability of these accessories is dependent on the condition and source of the rifles and may not be included in response for AK-74 type rifles. Four (4) 30-round steel or polymer box magazines One (1) cleaning kit (includes brush, drift, scourer, and screwdriver) One (1) oil bottle One (1) sling One (1) manual (in English) Technical Description: The AK-74-type Kalashnikov Assault Rifle is an air-cooled, magazine-fed, selective-fire assault rifle that is chambered in 5.45 x 39mm. It utilizes a long-stroke gas piston and a multi-lug rotating bolt based off of the Avtomat Kalashnikov Assault Rifle. The weapon is comprised of stamped sheet metal riveted to steel inserts. It is equipped with a single lever-style selector lever on the right side of the receiver. The barrel itself is not threaded, instead it is equipped with a pressed/pinned-on 24 mm threaded front sight block. In older variants, the threaded portion is separate from the front sight block and as such is pressed/pinned-on the barrel separately. The bolt features an external extractor. The firing pin does not feature flutes. The handguard and stock are made of wood or polymer. The stock is the “fixed” type and does not fold or collapse. Caliber: 5.45 x 39mm Barrel length: 415mm (~16.3 inches) Rate of fire: ~600 rounds per minute Overall length: 940mm (~37 inches) Weight, empty: approx. 3.07 kg (~6.80 lbs) Country of Origin: Responses shall include the country of original manufacture and the providing source. Weapon systems of interest are those that follow the design pattern of rifles from Romania (eg. md.86), Russia (eg. AK-74), and East Germany (eg. MPi AK74). Weapons manufactured elsewhere are also desirable provided they adhere to the AK-74 pattern. Conversely, Bulgarian AR-SF and Polish Tantal-pattern rifles are not considered AK-74 pattern weapons for the purposes of this Sources Sought notice. Responses offering these weapon systems or other systems that do not adhere to the AK-74 pattern are not desirable. Materiel Condition: Sources are sought for functional AK-74 weapon systems. New Production items are preferred. Rifles in new old-stock/unissued, refurbished, or surplus conditions are satisfactory as long as they are determined to be safe-to-fire. Rifles assembled from previously-used or loose parts (i.e. “parts kits”) are also of interest.
