Watch this high tech demo of an AK-47 rifle firing and understand why this iconic combat rifle just keeps on going.
Larry Vickers of Vickers Tactical does this demo of an AK-47 rifle firing 100s of rounds downrange and you get to see the internal workings of the famous gun that just won’t quit.
The AK-47 family is an incredible combat weapon. Massed produced out of stamped metals using a fairly simple gas piston cycling action the stories of the robustness of these rifles are renowned. Anyone who has fired one is always surprised by how light these rifles are and how simple they are to use. Even with basic blade front and notched back sights they are very accurate and the recoil is highly manageable.
It is no wonder the AK-47 continues to be the preferred weapon of insurgents, terrorists and militaries around the globe. It is a legacy that is likely to continue for decades to come.
