AKM stands for Kalashnikov modernized automatic rifle, it is is an 7.62mm assault rifle designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is a common modernized variant of the AK-47 rifle. It uses the 7.62×39mm Soviet intermediate cartridge. It is gas operated with a rotating bolt. The AKM is capable of selective fire, firing either single shots or automatic at a cyclic rate of 600 rounds/min.

The AKM is a modernized version of the classic AK-47. It will spawn with a wooden stock and handguard by default.

The AKM is to be considered an excellent all-around weapon due to its considerable power coupled with its capacity for longer range engagements using the PSO-1 scope. However, the AKM suffers from extreme recoil which results in a serious loss of accuracy and difficulty in leading a target even at medium ranges if fired in bursts or the fully automatic mode. Therefore it is recommended to only use the AKMs fully automatic mode at close range.

The AKM has many attachments with various purposes, these parts may commonly be found in military installations and buildings.

  • The model of the AKM is made by @artguyharry.
  • The AKM was added in the 0.45.123906 Experimental version.
  • The AKM is the only Kalashnikov in DayZ Standalone which can not use the Suppressor East, and the only to have multiple types of magazines.
