    Don’t be dense, the rifle in that picture is just a dressed up RPK. There is no LSW variant of the AK-12 at this point in time.

      Exactly. At first glance I was like “Ok, so when did the Russian Army start using Tapco SAW grips??”

    I have been playing the Battlefield 4 beta, and I recently completed an assignment which unlocked the RPK-12 but for some reason I am unable to use it or even see it in my weapons. If someone could let me know why it would be a big help.
