Default New markings on current Kalashnikov Concern Tigers

Now that the SVD and Tiger are being produced under the Kalashnikov Concern name (instead of Izhmash) here is the new KK logo:

Tigr version 01 with 620mm barrel.




These pictures are from a Russian gun forum by member "Ace". He photoshopped out the serial number. It is being said that most of the components are now being made on CNC machines which leave fewer machining marks but have also raised the prices.

Really nice machining quality

Nice.

Too bad they didn't rename it while making the machining upgrades.

I'm curious how the internal machining looks too.

The bolt carrier and stamped metal parts look the same.


Inside looks a little cleaner




Gas block still looks cast

it's been made as it was made for years.

Bolt, Carrier, Action group is CNCd
muzzlebrake, gasblock, foreend furniture - cast -> cncd after casting.
