The "AK-19" is marketed under the qualities of the proven (and classic) Kalashnikov AK-47/AK-74 gas-operated assault rifle while chambered in the ubiquitous 5.56x45mm NATO intermediate rifle cartridge. The design brings about all-modern elements including a fully-adjustable, folding shoulder stock, weight-savings through increase of polymer in its construction, an ergonomic grip, and new muzzle device. The rifle maintains the AK-47's general arrangement including its over-barrel gas cylinder and curved detachable box magazine and seeks to secure customers use to the Soviet-style of firearm while accepting the Western style of cartridge.

The weapon system weighs a manageable 3.6 kilograms and is sighted out, in its basic form, to 800 meters. Rate-of-fire reaches 700 rounds-per-minute and overall length is 935mm with the stock fully extended, 690mm otherwise. The barrel assembly is 415mm long, is capped by a slotted flash hider, and can accept a suppressor for clandestine operations. The Magazine holds 30 ready-to-fire cartridges in 5.56mm chambering.

The charging handle, fire selector, and ejection port are all set to the right side of the frame. Magazines are inserted ahead of the trigger group / pistol grip with the magazine release catch located inbetween. The top of the frame, as well as the sides and bottom of the handguard, are ribbed for the mounting of a broad range of tactical devices including telescopic sights, aimers, lasers, flashlights, and grips.
