The Khazri assault rifle has some different features from the Russian original. They include the possibility of installing night vision devices, laser targeting, optical sights and lighting.
The design of the rifle has also been changed slightly, but the weight remains the same.
The rifle is being produced under licence from Kalashnikov's producers, Izhmash, the Izhevsk Machine-Building Plant.
Under the State Defence Order Program, the Ministry of the Defence Industry will produce 5,000 AK-74M Khazri assault rifles this year for delivery to the Defence Ministry.
