Here's one of my latest YouTube Videos featuring the AK-47. An informal review and fun shooting footage.
The stocks were on it that way when I bought it. I have a Tapco folder that I attach sometimes, but I like the feel of the fixed stock better. Thanks~yeah, +1 to that for sure.
Sootch, that does not look like original Romanian wood, looks better! is that a kit? it almost looks like Chinese AK/Norinco wood....
Sorry for not clarifying. I was using term "assault rifle" to refer to the original AK-47 Select fire version adopted by the Soviet Military. It was a historical point and not actually specific to the Semi-auto version. Thanks!only problem I have with the video is calling it an "assault" weapon
well, that's a complete re-work (read: miracle) job on original Romy wood, or, someone gave some TLC to a nice after-market wood kit. kast guess is that it's some wood from a Chinese Norinco. but, that last one seems doubtful.The stocks were on it that way when I bought it. I have a Tapco folder that I attach sometimes, but I like the feel of the fixed stock better. Thanks~
The ak-47 is an assault rifle, but I understand what your saying because it is often semi-auto here.only problem I have with the video is calling it an "assault" weapon
yeah, for all that penetrating fire ability, right?Thanks for posting this vid sootch,it confirms my opinion of this old,but proven design.Still a viable close range weapon (under 300 yards or so) I know they're super reliable,but I'll still stick with my ARs for defense,why.?The football trajectory & 7.62X39 runs outta steam real fast at longer ranges.This is why the Ruskies went .22 cf waay back when.
