Since before August of last year, there has been a "running request" from TheDunkis for me to build an AK-12 (AK-200). I had tried before, but had failed (probably from lack of really trying). This is now the fulfillment of that request from TD, one of my favorite ARs of all time (and one of my favorite builds of all time).
I like the AK-12 for multiple reasons. In the first place, it is extensively versatile. There are multiple different calibers that it can utilize, as well as numerous configurations and additions. While mine is slightly less versatile, with a certain amount of work , you could configure it to do just about anything (grenade launcher, fore-grip, optical sight, the list goes on), even change calibers (currently, it is shooting a dark-grey one-slot connector + a green rod).

- 14 round magazine
- 50 ft. range
- Comfortable (and extremely sturdy) grip
- Amazingly sturdy body
- Only requires 3 or 4 broken pieces (despite how many you see)
- Great sights (my ultimate favorite)
- Nice cheek rest
- Great pin-pull (see pic #19)
- Sturdy magazine (see pic #17)
- Utilizes sturdy RedBookofWestmarch mech (see pic #21 of that link)
Overall, I hope this is what TheDunkis wanted to see.
