From its very beginning the AK-47 was designed to be a simple, reliable automatic rifle that could be manufactured quickly and cheaply, using mass production methods by the Soviet Union during the beginning of the cold war. This weapon can be found any where in the world for its reliability and afford ability. Once it made its way to the United States, the weapon is now America’s second favorite to our AR-15 among the shooting enthusiasts. (oops, that’s another debate)
To fully appreciate the functionality of this fabulous weapon, take a look at it in full action and be amaze of the simple design and operation of the bolt carrier and gas block. This is all in slow motion, gotta love the technology! Powered by BCM to provide you with the viewing and Larry Vicker demoing with the AK.
