| "This AK derivative is a subcarbine version of the AKMS, with a barrel length of only 8.1 inches. Many adventurers and mercenaries enjoy using the AKMSU, and all agree that the loss of muzzle velocity caused by the very short barrel is just one drawback, easily outweighed by its many qualities: it is very compact, can be folded to an even smaller package if needed, relatively lightweight, and accepts commonly-found magazines and ammunition."|

Though quite obviously based on a Kalashnikov-pattern rifle, the AKMSU, long rumored to have been a "secret" Soviet assault rifle, is in fact an extremely well-made Khyber Pass copy. It has fooled the world (including Russian weapons experts and defense analysts!) for many years into looking like an IZHMASH-produced, Soviet-designed weapon. As such, the rifle is considered to be both Soviet and Pakistani; the former because it is an AK, the latter because it was most likely created in Khyber Pass. The author would like to salute this unknown legendary gunsmith for having fooled us all for so long, and for having created the world's most famous Khyber Pass firearm copy.
