The AKML comes equipped with a side-rail used to attach a night vision device . The mount comprises a flat plate riveted to the left wall of the receiver housing and a support bracket fixed to the mounting base with screws. To shield the light-sensitive photo detector plate of the night vision sight, the weapon uses a slotted flash suppressor , which replaces the standard recoil compensator. The AKML can also be deployed in the prone position with a detachable barrel-mounted bipod that helps stabilize the weapon and reduces operator fatigue during prolonged periods of observation. The bipod is supplied as an accessory and is carried in a holster attached to the duty belt.
The Hungarian FEG NGM-81 was a domestic rifle based on the indigenous Hungarian AK74, but built for export. For that reason, it was chambered in , though some variants exist. The Rifle was built between 1981-1990. The original rifles were only offered with a fixed butt and a wooden fore-end, made in the same Hungarian Blonde wood as the SA-85M export rifle. The folding stock version of this rifle was called the NGV-81. Due to Cold War prohibitions against Combloc weapons within the . (except those exempted by treaty), the vast majority of the export NGM-81 rifles went to Europe and Africa. Most versions omit the large PKM style flash hider, opting instead for the standard AK-47 style muzzle nut. The FEG NGM rifle was noteworthy in that it kept the AK-47/Type 56 style of gas block system, with the gas relief holes in the gas tube, not the gas block (as is the case with the AKM and later style rifles). The Gas block itself and the front sight is the AKM style in shape and the rifle takes a Hungarian stamped metal magazine similar but not identical to the Wieger style AK magazine.
In 1886, the French Army introduced a 52-centimetre-long ( in) quadrangular épée spike for the bayonet of the Lebel Model 1886 rifle , the Épée-Baïonnette Modèle 1886 , resulting in a rifle and bayonet with an overall length of six feet ( m). German ordnance authorities responded by introducing a long sword bayonet for the Model 1898 Mauser rifle, which had a 29-inch barrel. The new bayonet, designated the Seitengewehr 98 , had a 50 cm (-inch) blade.  With an overall length of 5 feet 9 inches ( m), the German Army's rifle/bayonet combination was second only to the French Lebel for overall bayonet 'reach'.
