Its easy, the AK is one of the best weapons in the world.

Easy to use, actually anyone can use it. What do you think many of the child soldiers in Africa use, the AK. Its easy to clean, will still fire even if its been put in water, sand...anything. Many of the other more complicated weapons will not work put in the same conditions as the AK. (M16A2 - superb accuracy)

Take down power. The AK, if you hit your target, will take him/her down.



Now watch these clips....lol

Never fired a weapon made mostly of plastic before. Not sure I would trust it, especially in an intense firefight (would the gun melt at a high rate of fire??..I have no idea)

The M16 is made mostly of plastic. It was durable and high-performance. Only the 30 round clips with fuck up for some reason. The XM8 is the newest assault rifle and looks pretty cheap to make. It's mechanical parts are all metal of course but it's made mostly of plastic because it needs to be light and easy to aim and carry. The M16 was the same way in that sense but the XM8 comes with a newer design, features etc. That's why I want one. It's fucking awesome.

I saw a clip where a buddy was holding one handed, firing full auto, wicked looking stuff. But the military stopped production on the XM8 model.

Here's what I learned in the firing range.

The AK 47 isnt all accurate believe me I tried it. no matter how many ACOGS, EOtechs and Aimpoint you put in there.

due to its high caliber, the firing quality makes it shaky. but it has a high velocity. Another reason why its shaky is its Gas powered it gives off high amount of pressure from the bullets exit barrel.

Why is the AK-47 most widely used?

Its simple... its the cheapest and easiest to use. so easy a 5 y/o child can use it. If you wanna buy one, you can get it like $1,000 US dollars much more cheaper than the standard m16, which would cost you around like $ 6,000 - $9,000.

Who uses the AK-47?

Communist countries or countries that are in Arms business deals with China and Russia. Some former states in the Warsaw pact still uses them like Croatia, Yugoslavia, Poland (in certain divisions). Countries that are armed by the russians during the cold war like syria, Lebanon, Jordan Egypt and Iraq.

and ofcourse theres alot of Gun-runners out there arming militias around the world.

How do I use the AK-47?

its simple, insert the mag and cock it. If the bolt is jammed, cock it again. That simple.

Whats the Difference between the AK-47 and the M16?


if anyone of you here in crunchyroll fired one, then thats great.

alot. Although theyre both waterproof. Whenever a AK-47 is jammed, just cock it again. but if an M16 is jammed there is a button called forward assist button. you use it whenever a bullet is stuck in the bolt or its jammed. but still the m16 is a nice weapon. theyre both in par excellence.

Am I able to learn the ways to use an AK-47?

Yes... almost like a 30 min. discussion would make you an average AK-47 user.

hope y'all learned something in what I know.

The AK-47 is, without a doubt, a history-maker in the world of firearms. Period.

Are you kidding? The AK-47 is awesome. You can throw dirt in the barrel and the thing would still operate. The AK-47 also has massive numbers, around 10 million last i heard were around.

As one who has actually not merely fired, but also used and cared for an assault rifle for extended period of usage in northern forest/island/swamp regions I can claim SOME knowledge...

The weapon in question is an AK-clone( 7.62 RK-62 [7.62=caliber;RK=rynnakkokivaari=assault rifle; 62=1962=when manuafacturing began]) so I will freely use the experience..

Reasons for AK's success

A) Reliable as hell! Can take on sand, snow and tropic climates
B) Easy-To-Use-Learn-and-Upkeep
C) Cheap the Chinese-model has the best cost/efficciency-rate of ANY and ALL assault rifles
D) Deadly up to ~1,5-3 kilometers accurate(for militia) up to 700 meters (a little bit more for snipers)

And for those who speak up for M16/M4 yay! for you, but to my knowledge M16 has a LOT more jamming, and problems on Extreme climates(desert&rainforest&nordic forest)..
Also on forest-terrain the AK has superior piercing ability.

That's my humble opinion. Disagree and I'll consider it, when I sober up..
Goodnight to all the jungle...

If you don't buy first round, you can afford one (without armor) 2nd round no matter what, that and you can dink people for like 95 dmg. The Source AK has totally eliminated the need for sub machineguns. (unless you win 1st round and are doing a full team buy 2nd round with nades) On the other hand, Silenced m4 > AK in every way, especially since wall shots do like no dmg in source.

no.. dirt may defunct the AK bolt itself. but not mud. its bolt can still operate IF the mud is on the cartridge injection. the AK still needs to be oiled for smooth performance of the recoil.

the most popular AK-clone is the Norinco Type 56 of China, same features of the original AK itself.

yes the M16 has alot of jamming becuase:

1. the bolt has alot of subparts
2. the bullet placement to its barrel has a possibility of misposition.

that 700 meters youre talking about might be the dragunov. but there is an AK variant for snipers called the Zastava M76. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zastava_M76

the m16 has no problems with desert and arid climates because basically the m16 has an ejection port cover

but anyways much of your info is true though.

coincidence. i need to sober up too

toodles!!
