Rifle Dynamics has released their latest offering in the AK pattern with the new 5.45 Quickhatch PDW.

Rifle Dynamics state “Welcome the newest member of the Rifle Dynamics family.

The Quickhatch fills the specialized role of PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) in our line up.

Taking inspiration from the original AK PDW, the AKSU, we wanted to build something similar in size but also taking advantage of modern gear and accessories in mind.

This special edition Quickhatch is chambered in 5.45x39mm to truly bring about a modernized Krinkov.

To build on our modernized Krinkov concept we start with a nitrided 9in barrel threaded in 1/2×28 for use with suppressor mount muzzle devices.

We wanted the Quickhatch to be able to run a suppressor and still be well balanced and compact.

With a Sandman K we are about 2mm longer than a RD704 with a Dead Air 3 port brake.

We also updated the gas port location with a custom piston to increase the dwell time and to keep the system under pressure longer.

Compared to a Krink we have more than twice the barrel length after the gas port.

This means that the system does not have to be over gassed to run with and without a can.

For even more fine tuning we have also incorporated our tunable gas block in a new low profile design.

To take advantage of the new gas system and the need to add accessories such as red dot, white lights, and IR devices we worked with Occam Defense Solutions to collaborate on a new rail for this project.

The rail features three M-LOK slots at the three and nine o’clock position and two and half slots on the bottom of the rail.

We also have half slots that are compatible with M-LOK just above the three and nine o’clock slots, at the four/five and six/seven o’clock positions.

Another change over the traditional merc rail is a slight decrease in the picatinny section on the rear for easy installation and removal of the dust cover.

To complete the PDW we have installed our 1913 rear trunnion. This gives you the most options for how to run your pistol or SBR.”
