The AK-105 is a derivative of the AK-74M, which in itself is a modernized variant of the AK74. It is a part of the AK-100 series, utilizing polymer components instead of the older wooden furniture, as well more updated manufacturing methods.
The AK-105 like the AK-74M, is chambered in the 5.45x39mm intermediate cartridge. It is 824mm in length—longer than the AKS-74U but shorter than a full-sized AK rifle. The weapon entered limited service in 2001 with Russian military, and is used by some units of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs and other law enforcement agencies. The weapon is set to supplant the AKS-74U in service.
The AK105 is a high-damage carbine, with a three-shot kill (3SK) up close or a 2SK with headshots. At range, however, the AK105 performs mediocrely, being a 5SK without any headshots.
Rate of fire (RoF) is low for its class, at 600 RPM. However, due to the high damage up close, its minimum time to kill (TTK) still remains quite good, at 0.1 seconds. However, it requires two headshots to acheive this TTK.
Magazine capacity is average, at 30+1 rounds. Reload time is quite short, taking 2.3 seconds for a tactical reload and 3.1 seconds for an empty reload.
Recoil is quite high, being similar to the AK103, although with less horizontal kick.
Penetration abilities are poor, compared to other Kalashnikov rifles like the AK103, at 1.0 studs.
Usage and Tactics
One should use the AK105 in a more aggressive role, playing up close with faster-paced and in confined areas. It does not perform well at range, given its higher recoil and worse range, but its high damage up close and fairly quick reload times makes it ideally suited for close-quarters-combat (CQC).
The weapon is not well suited to spraying through cover, due to its low penetration. Given its high recoil, a Muzzle Brake can help reduce the vertical recoil. Due to its high muzzle flash, if one can learn to control the recoil on the AK105, a Flash Hider is recommended.
The AK105 is a hybrid between the AK103 and the AK74. It sports the high close-range damage of the former, its recoil, and the cartridge of the latter.
Pros and Cons
- Fast tactical reload time.
- High maximum damage—2SK with headshots up to 30 studs.
- Controllable recoil.
- Clear iron sights.
- Low ammunition consumption rate.
- High muzzle flash.
- Very low RoF for an automatic carbine.
- Slow muzzle velocity.
- Short range.
- The AK105 was seen in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots.
- Like the AK103, the AK105 incorrectly has a ribbed top cover. The top cover should be smooth, like the in-game depiction of the AK74.
