  • Quality Heavyweight Design
  • Modular Tactical Handguard
  • AR Style Buffer Tube

An AK with a more modern twist! Part of NUPROL's Romeo series of rifles, both the Nomad and Recon take the traditional AK and re-imagine it for a more modern era. With a quality heavyweight design, modular tactical handguard, and AR style buffer tube, what's not to like?

Full description


Both the Nomad and Recon are built from heavy duty materials, with an Alloy Handguard, Outer Barrel, Flash Hider, Receiver, Dust Cover, Buffer Tube and Internals, with a polymer Stock and Pistol Grip. The weapons design quality leads to a wobble free design giving the weapon a more realistic feel and weight.

On the surface both variants of the rifle feature the same features and design, with the difference being the type of handguard attached to the weapon. The Nomad variant features a more modern M-LOK handguard, and the Recon offering a KeyMod handguard, with both having a top 20mm RIS / RAS Rail for attaching forward sights, peq boxes and more. Both handguards feature rails at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock position, with both having dual lines on the left and right for higher levels of customisation.

The rear of the weapon features a more modern AR Style buffer tube, allowing M4 and AR style stocks to be attached to the weapon. To get you started the weapon features NUPROL's advanced A.X.E stock which is designed to be low profile and lightweight, with a rubberised butt plate to prevent the weapon from slipping during use. The stock is adjustable to up to six positions making it perfect for a wide range of shooter sizes. The weapon also features a buffer tube sling plate which is ambidextrous and allows for single point slings to be used for easier transitioning in a CQB environment.

The receiver of the weapon has also gotten a modern treatment, with the traditional dust cover being replace with one with a top 20mm RIS / RAS Rail. The added rails allow the attachment of 20mm RIS / RAS sights, the most common on the market today, allowing for a wide range of sights and scopes to be fitted. Not only does the rifle allow the attachment of common sights and scopes, the rifle also features a side AK scope mount palate, allowing for AK style sights and scopes to be fitted.

Internally the weapon features a V3 gearbox, and comes fitted with high quality silver wiring as standard, and it top wired meaning that the weapon's battery is stored underneath the dust cover allowing for stick type battery to be used. The weapon also features a linear adjustable hop-up unit which adds spin to the BB to improve the range and accuracy of the weapon, and is fully adjustable for a wide range of BB weights.

This rifle is perfect for those Airsoft skirmishers who are looking for a more modern AK variant, or for those switching from the more common M4 / AR style rifle who want the best of both worlds when it comes to features.

Special Instructions

To remove the flash hider please first push in the little spring loaded nub which locks it in place. This can be hard to do, but if you use something like a pen or a small screwdriver it should be easy. Make sure when you remove the flash hider that this part does not fly out, as it is small and easy to lose.

After every skirmish we recommend pressing the decocking button next to the trigger at the top. This will release the spring into a relaxed state and help prolong the lifespan of the weapon.
