Do You Have A High Res Of This Photo?
Hmm, about the PKM scope.. I recently saw this picture of 76th Guards Airborne on their trip to China:
If you look in the background, you can see a Pecheneg with a scope, from the look of it, it might be the 1P29. The 1P29 has a elevation cam for the PKM so that would make sense..
The guy in front also has a 1P29 on his Ak-74M..
Sorry, don't have a high-res one available.
I do have another, sadly not as high-res but it shows that the scope is quite high on the Pecheneg :
Reason for me thinking it's a pecheneg: carrying handle, bipod at the front instead of at the gastube, box mag like on the PKM.
Sorry for pushing the thread offtopic..
Is that 1P29 a copy of the British SUIT?
Yes, it has some modifications for use on Ak style weapons but it's basicly the same. It also features an interchangable elevation cam for 3 rifles (Ak-74, RPK-74 and PKM).
I do not have any other pictures atm, those 2 were the only ones showing the scope in use on a pecheneg. Offcourse, I could be wrong, it might be another sight. I'm only human

I've never used anything bar the Mag 58, but wouldn't have any problem choosing it. Keep it lubed up and with a decent supply of barrels and i reckon they'd keep firing forever
Just looking at the photos shown of the Pecheneg I'd guess it is either the 1P-29 sight, which is intended for use on the AK-74N, RPK-74N and PKMN weapons... so use on the Pecheneg makes sense too, or I thought it might have been the 1PN93-3 as this night sight is specially designed for 7.62 x 54 weapons like SVD and PKM... of course these pictures are day time pics so the 1P-29 makes rather more sense. (1PN93-3 uses either a 2+ or 3 generation Image Intensification tube)
V nice pics BTW.
Nice, but how could it be considered a winner? The people that currently use PKMs can't use it because they dont' use that calibre, and the people who do use that calibre aren't going to use a Russian weapon are they?We have ourselves a winner!
I love how GazB educates us all with just a little bit of words.
Thank you GAZ for every informative post you post. I and many of my friends here appreciate your input and support for our side! ! !
I will be firing Pecheneg with my friends this summer. StukaJr and I will document this event in depth!
I'll go with the FN MAG.

19lbs unloaded? Doesn't sound right.
Sorry to raise a dead thread, but:
When you do could you check something for me?I will be firing Pecheneg with my friends this summer. StukaJr and I will document this event in depth!
According to Rosoboronexport (the Russian international trading organistation):
If this is correct doesn't that change a few things? ie you can run around with 25 rounds attached to the gun, or you can have 4 x 25 round belts or 2 x 50 round belts in a 100 round box etc etc... with no empty belt slapping between your legs as you run.Pecheneg can fire all types of 7.62x54mm rounds. The weapon is fed from a 25- or 50-round disintegrating metal belt. Loaded belts are transported in boxes for 100 and 200 rounds each.
Would very much appreciate some vids of your testing this weapon... the few bits I have seen it seems to be very accurate.
Just looked at some video of the Pecheneg and its seems to use non disintegrating link... :confused:
Perhaps it is an export option?
