Hugo Schmeiser designed one hell of a gun, twice. -Anymouse
GOD! Did you see the barrel whip on the video? I know there are mechanical elements missing in order to show the action of the weapon, BUT STILL! Can you even imagine hitting a target 200 yards downrange with this? Give me a Eugene Stoner designed weapon any day over that of a German Rip-Off weapon designer such as Anatoly K. There's a reason our forces were accused of up-close killing of combatants in Iraq when they were actually hundreds of yards away; ACCURACY! And that was due to the quality of the weapon with it's optics. Screw the leftists!
Anon 12:23 here..I left out training. Which, as an American warrior, we all take for granted...
When you are making a weapon designed from the start to be operated under extreme conditions and maintained by peasants the AK fit the bill. Now run by people who believe in allah and spray&pray it still fulfills it's mission. Watching that op-rod trying to find its way home was interesting.
Besides the barrel whip, the bullet wobble was really, uh, interesting as well. That rotational wobble, precession or nutation, cannot help its accuracy. But then, most military weapons were not designed to be accurate past 400 meters, if that. The preferred military design is to cause damage, so that the combatant and 2 others are taken out of the battle.Bryan
As with all things, the Iron Triangle Rule applies. In the case of rifles, it's Accuracy, Rate of Fire, and Knockdown Power. You only get to pick two.Any automatic rifle shooting a medium (7.62) caliber is going to be inaccurate. I've fired all of them: AK, FN-FAL, HK-91, BAR, Hakim, whatever, and none of them are worth a damn. They are purely and simply a spray and pray Mechanism, crippled by low-cap mags. (You only THINK a 30-round mag is adequate, until you empty it in 2.5 seconds.)If you want automatic fire AND accuracy you have to step down to a pistol caliber or .22 or less -- e.g. the M16 or HK, which all sacrifice knockdown power for controllability/accuracy. All that said, if civilization crumbles, the one weapon I want is a (semi-auto) AK-47. It never breaks, requires little or no maintenance, has acceptable knockdown power and works under all circumstances. The cheap ammo doesn't hurt, either.Your opinion may vary, but you'd be wrong.
Here's an interesting read, just for fun. -Anymousehttp://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2014/03/14/designed-ak-47/
Anon 12:23 here.Thanks, Kim. I so miss your website...it's like the loss of a long loved favorite dog that has passed.
I also miss Kim's website, but I recall Kim being a fan of the M1 carbine for when TSHTF. What changed his mind?Luigi
I love the M1 Carbine. It would be my #2 choice, but only because they jam a lot. No problem for recreational shooting, in a SHTF situation: huge problem.
Anon 12:23 here.Well my M1 is my #1. I feed it Corbon rounds with the Barnes solid copper expanding bullets, and haven't had any issues. Of course it hasn't seen any extended firefights!
Watching that AK flex and wobble made me cringe. I much preferred watching the FAL in slo-mo. Now THAT is a piece of weaponry (besides, 7.62x51 turns cover into concealment)!Caballlero Andante
