AMP 69: Hungary’s Grenade-Launching AK

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

The Hungarian AMP-69 is, I think, the undisputed ugliest military AK variant ever fielded. It is truly an example of function over form, designed specifically for the role of dedicated rifle grenade launcher. To this end, the muzzle is fitted with a grenade spigot, a side rail mounts a high-angle optical sight, both the hand guard and buttstock are fitted with recoil-absorbing springs, and the pistol grip is made of a pliable rubber. The standard magazine was a 10-round one with a block in the front to prevent regular ammunition from being loaded. Hungarian rifle grenades used with the AMP-69 were launched with blank cartridges, and were not pass-through or bullet-trap designs.
