The Arsenal AK74 Jubilee Series
A collaboration between Arsenal Inc. and Izhmash resulted in the Jubilee Series. Mikhail Kalashnikov himself personally oversaw the project. The initial manufacturing was in Russia and then by Arsenal Inc perfected the Izhmash Jubilee Gold Edition AK74 5.45X39mm rifle’s final configuration in the U.S. after the initial manufacturing was done in Russia.
To commemorate Mikhail Kalashnikov’s 90th birthday, 500 Jubilee rifles were produced.

The first 100 Jubilee 5.45X39mm rifles were finished to Gold Edition standards, the remaining 400 were dedicated to the Silver Edition.
