Like the AK-47, the soviet RPG is an iconic symbol of revolution. Airtronic USA has introduced their spin on the classic rocket propelled grenage launcher, their lightweight MK777 RPG-7. Weighint in at just 7.7 lbs, about half the weight of their other RPG-7, it features a metal liner and a carbon composite wrap made by ATK. It is compatible with current RPG-7 ammunition.

The Japanese copy, dubbed the Type 5 rifle, was chambered in 7.7mm instead of 7.62mm 30.06 and had a 10 round internal magazine as opposed to the M1 Garand’s 8 round. Lucky for us at the time, only 100 copies were ever made.
