Selective-fire assault rifle fed from a detachable magazine. Modernized version of classic KA-47 with lot of attachments available. Uses 7.62x39mm rounds. — In-game description
The KA-M is to be considered an excellent all-around weapon due to its considerable power coupled with its capacity for longer range engagements using the PSO-1 scope. However, the KA-M suffers from extreme recoil which results in a serious loss of accuracy and difficulty in leading a target even at medium ranges if fired in bursts or the fully automatic mode. Therefore it is recommended to only use the KA-M's fully automatic mode at close range.

Weapon attachments are any accessories or devices that attach to a firearm in order to add, improve or modify the weapon's functionality or performance. In DayZ Standalone these attachments take the form of sights/optics, handguards, buttstocks, muzzle devices, barrel and handguard attachments and gun wraps.
