I would use a more standard, cheap and not so modernized AK rifle. Perhaps with rails to mount an modern optic and that´s it. PMC´s or CIA uses this stuff in country i think. So it is much easier and cheaper to throw away the rifle when you leave and buy a new one for the next Job. The CIA
will come to the country via a military flight. So they could bring in their own weapons and equipment. I personally would never spend thousands of Dollars for a “Gucci” rifle just to throw it away after the job is done. What works and has proven itself is used.The Figure from Damtoys is looking cool but shouldn’t have much to do with reality.
I’m a little late to the party here, but I would agree with a lot of what others have said: a modernised AK might be a better choice than a fully tricked-out rifle. I would opt for one of those on offer from DAM rather than Flagset.
The AKM and AKMS - both from DAM - would both be excellent choices, although a modernised AK47 or AKS47 with polymer furniture might be even better. The 3 rifles in the pics below are all customs that I have made at various times in the past, yet all would work on such a figure. The first 2 are customised offerings from DAM, while the AKS47 in the second pic is based on the DML AKS47 as shared by @Col.Braddock above.
Alternatively, if you really wanted the look of that Romanian wire stock as shared above by both yourself and @Lurp82, yes you could just equip him with one of the old HT AKs, but these are all underscaled and lacking in detail compared to today’s offerings. That said, you could customise your own more accurately-scaled rifle by gluing the HT stock onto a DAM, Flagset, or DML AK47 receiver.
Oh man, those customs are perfect. I think I may wait until 78090 releases and try to grab the rifle for less than a kidney, although the price of loose AKs might just push me towards using an M4 instead.
