The KB-P 790 (Дегтярёва Гаранина инд. КБ-П-790) is a light machine gun prototype of Soviet origin. The weapon uses a delayed blowback operation and is chambered in the 7.62×39mm round. Also known as the Degtyarev-Garanin, it was one of the four competitors in the contest for replacing the RPD. Ultimately it lost to Kalashnikov's RPK.
