AK-47 +0 x22 50m 1 25 $250/30 4.5kg 3 7.62x39mm

The original and oft-duplicated Automat Kalashnikova was one of the most common and widely distributed combat rifles the world had ever seen. There are an estimated to be an excess of 50 million such rifles and their derivatives since the rifle's design in 1947. The AK-47 was a comparatively simple design that was blessed with an incredible reliability. The AK-47 still offers one of the best bangs for the buck, as they can often be purchased for about $250.

A polymer and carbon-fiber update of the AKM, distributed throughout the remains of the Soviet Bloc and client states. Easy to get, even easier to maintain, the AKR-20 is a popular battle rifle of many nations. The AKR-20 is commonly available in both 7.62x39mm (as listed) and the lighter 5.45x39mm (x20, 30rds)


Ares M32 Light Battle Rifle +0 x22 50m 1 30 $750/30 4kg 3 7x48mm

The M32 is a heavy-barrelled bullpup-configured light battle rifle chambered for the 7x48mm rifle cartridge, effectively a compromise between the 5.56mm's light weight and the 7.62mm's power. The M32 has a polymer composite frame with a high-performance alloy action and barrel, vestigial thumbhole grip, customizable stock (via spacers), STANAG-compatible option mount, and integral flash-suppressor/compensator. The M32 also has an optional bipod mount ($200) and a light support weapon variant with modified trigger and bolt groups (increase ROF to +2, +$500). For the LSW variant, a special belt-feeder is also available (essentially a flexible belt-fed box magazine, feeding from a hip- or backpack supply). The heavy barrel also makes the M32 a prime candidate for a sniper-upgraded weapon system ($1500, increase BR to 75m)

Federated Arms Light Assault 15 +0 x22 50m 1 30 $600/30 3kg 3 7x48mm

Federated Arms' bid for the polymer-frame, bullpup-configured combat rifle pioneered by HK's G-8/9 and Sternmeyer's M-95A. As with all Federated products, this is a durable and efficient lightweight rifle, with good accuracy and reliability. The LA-15 has all but replaced the Ares Ronin as the standard combat rifle of New Olympus and the Western Free States frontline troops. Federated also manufactures a version for Special Forces, on which the forward barrel assembly is removable to make the weapon shorter ($750). However, this has an adverse effect on range, as well as increasing muzzle flash and report.

Another favorite of security and antiterrorist forces the world over!

Ranger Arms R29 is the standard-issue battle rifle of the Texas Free Republic. The R29 is functionally similar to the Federated Arms LA-15, but features a substantially more robust overall design with such features as backup iron sights (which the LA-15 lacks), a heavier alloy barrel, a more stable and rugged integrated optics (Sniper System to 200m), and the mechanism is generally more resistant to sand and dirt, making it more reliable in desert conditions.
