AK-94 is a 2-barrelled period 94 glider gun that was found by Mike Playle on May 9, 2013. It is powered by the AK-47 reaction, and additional catalysts are used to eat the byproduct traffic lights.
In July 2014 Martin Grant found a 60-glider synthesis for the one-barreled gun, which can be trivially turned into a two-barreled gun by removing two gliders. On May 20, 2019, Jeremy Tan reduced this to 52 gliders for the one-barreled gun and 50 for the two-barreled version.
