In more recent years, it has been observed in use by some Egyptian police units. A shortened carbine version of this rifle called the Rasheed Carbine was manufactured in limited numbers in Egypt using the less powerful 7.62x39mm cartridge.Due to its age, the Hakim is designated as a Curio and Relic firearm by the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Some internet sites have incorrectly referred to this as a flash suppressor; the two are distinctly different features that serve entirely different functions: a muzzle brake is designed to reduce recoil (thereby reducing stress on the operator, as well as wear on the rifle itself), whereas a flash suppressor is designed to reduce the bright muzzle flash so that it does not blind the operator when firing in dark conditions.
The Hakim features a 10-round magazine intended to be loaded from the top breech with 5 round stripper clips.
