system isn't? There's a ton of bias in this show. And then the whole

is that true if ak-74 had brighter flash when fired ??. and it's still
debate able to the military doctrine on this day which is the best between
quality or quantity...because when we in the harsh situation we gonna grab

instead of concentrating on the weapon he was concentrating his attention
on comparing it to the m4.. I thought the episode was supposed to be about
the 74 and SVD..

6:29, the SVD doesn't have a AK bolt, the AK bolt is two lugged at is what
some might call fluted. The SVD uses the more solid un-fluted three lug
bolt with a different rotation than the AK.

Автор Anselmo Alliegro ( назад)
The the original muzzle brakes had more to do with launching grenades than
with suppressing flash or recoil. If you noticed, most of the NATO rifles
have a flash hider that is exactly 22 mm in diameter (M16, G3, CETME,
GALILL, BERETTA, AUG...). FALs world later be equipped with this type of
flash suppressor to use the ENERGA and POLIVALENT rifle grenades of the
period. By then the M14 was considered obsolete and we had adopted the M79
grenade launcher. The sound a rifle makes is also very important. In a
firefight, specially at night, it is important that the sound your rifle
makes does not mimic that of your enemy. Some of the shorter rifles, for
instance, may sound like an AK47 or a FAL. You want your rifle to sound
just like those of your friends less you become a victim of friendly fire.

Well, since the Afghani's called the 5x45 bullet, the poison bullet do to
its effectiveness, that answers the question about the .223/5.56. The AR
round is slightly heavier & a little more velocity. Just have to read
between the lines. Peace.

That for nonsense!
AK isn't copy of Stg - its two absolutely different technical systems!
This man understands what he speaks?

And Stg wasn't the first avtomat (battle rifle) - 30 years before Stg
russians created and used Fedorov's Avtomat in regular army.

And what is AK-47??? There no sach weapon like AK-47. There is only AK/AKM.
Study military science, girls!

Load of Bullshit, at 1:28, Mikhail had the idea for the AK-47 in 1942, no
way he saw an M1 Grand let alone know enough to get any ideas of it, pure
American Propaganda. The MP44 and the AK have visual resmblences but not
any internal ones that make the AK so popular.

The AK family is much less likely to jam on you in battle, than the M16/M4.
They're also so much more easier to strip than it's competitors, the AK-47
has much more stopping power, but lacks accuracy

the SVD is a great weapon it has range power. The M14 is way to hard to

better. SVD anyday m14 fuck that sorry got to ajust to windage eveytime

guns aren't scary or dangerous at all, and there's absolutely no reason to
instill in them a fear and respect for the the power of firearms!

Full manual single shot bolt. only gun a real sniper would use. one

Автор Uploader24 ( назад)
The AK74 is highly controllable not only because of the muzzle break. You
can look up the test data showing that the 5.45 fired from AK74 has much
lower free recoil energy then the 5.56 fired from the M16, as for the flash
they also use low flash propellant. The AK74 has a 16 inch barrel and the
M16 a 20 inch barrel, you can speculate that the M4A1 has even more free
recoil energy then the M16 because of it's 14 inch barrel.

@fullmindstorm Are you high? The first autoloading gun was the Maxim Gun in

released by Ferdinand Mannlicher in 1885.

i thought that the AK-74 was made because after the Soviet Union broke up,
the old Russian countries that wanted to join NATO had to have a weapon
that fit into the Geneva Conventions, and the 7.72x39 did not, so they
tried to make the AK into a NATO equivalant of the 5.56.if IM wrong then i
am and i wont argue. its always good to learn something new...............
although the 5.54 is a much more inexpensive round, and dont shoot that
bad, sucks that most rounds are corrosive though 

Автор MrWiggo91 ( назад)
I think teaching younger children to shoot is a fantastic idea and I'd bet
they'd be far more responsive to firearms safety than older children and
definitely more responsive than adults. I really can't see why people get
such a bee in their bonnet on these matters. 

Автор robin6512 ( назад)
a Drago mount is outdated?? WTF, this thing comes back to zero every time.
The scope is rugged and very easy to work with and it is as the M14
is, it's a DM rifle.
The 4 power scope should be chg-ed for a 6 or 8 time power and it is one
hell of a beast. (m76 is better in my opinion) You really think the
russians would still use it if it was crap? don't think so.

One of the few Americans which is not acting like a idot and shows facts
from the weapon models in( their version at the time). He does not blow
things up and yes i think he is more into american weapons. What do you
aspect ? He is American.
But he also is showing in his docu about the ak 74 that outperformes the
akm (ak47) and tells us why.But there are still facts ... that americans
also changed from M-16 to their m4 because of reliability issues. In Irak
and Afganistan many are changing their M4 for a Ak because of the
reliabilty of the ak. He speaks the truth when he said that the russian
army is different in their thinking. It's all about massproduction and
ease of use,cheap and reliabile. Not the MOST accurate but efficent enough
to kill your enemy.The combat accuracy differs not much from a ak 74 and
M4. In the modern versions with rails and special optics they are almost
equal. But even with improved dustcover the M4 is not so reliabile as the
ak. Throw a ak from 10 meters high on a concrete floor pick it up and fire.
To that with a M4 you have to go to the garbage can. Then in conditions wit
big minus degrees the ak will fire and the M4 will jam. Thats what i have
seen on you toube..
I also was looking on non OFFICAL blogs from american soldiers.
So you will always have the OFFICAL view from people how are supporting
their OWN Country and weapon manufacturers (lobbyism) and the truth.

The M4 shares stil many desgin features from the armalite AR15/colt M16.
But has improved....

I would like to see a OFFICAL test from a Independent source between the M4
and AK 74 under Battle conditions. With Mud,water and all what is necessary
to let a gun jam.

I iwould always choose a ak design over the M4 or european
design(exeception is vz58).Because it is cheaper and you will almost ever
hear bumm and not click when you are in the need of firepower ...
That is what is famous for .....the AKM (ak47) and Ak74.

I have a doubt, why do parents in theUSA teach their kids how to shoot a
firearm, I mean, if the only way to be secure is to carry a gun wherever
you go, how are you going to tell a kid that big problems can't be solved
using only violence, why aren't they taught more about ethics. There are so
many deaths
in schools and on the streets just because of people with guns. What I mean
is what do you think is Protecting. I know that a gun doesn't have to make
you violent, but if you know somebody is more likely to use it the wrong
way (asperger, bullying (the bully and the victim) schizofrenia, bad
behavior...), what are we going to do if even a blind person can buy one.

The guy is biased. This degrades him as a professional. By the way an
interesting fact such as Kalashnikov was inspired by Sturmgewehr, the

Actual the Russians and Eastern Bloc countries had developed and used flash
hiders and suppressors for both the 14mm threaded AKM barrels, and 24mm
threaded barrels of the AK74 / AK 100 series rifles. The 3 piece AKM and AK
100 series flash hider / brake (not shown in this video / TV show) is quite
effective at reducing both muzzle blast and reducing recoil / muzzle climb.

Автор JuanDeSoCal ( назад)
Oh, so it's evidence that the Soviets placed no value on the lives of its
soldiers when it fielded a rifle with insufficient flash suppression, but
America was better when it fielded a finicky, failure-prone rifle with
little prior testing? Also, best get to the gym before you throw your back

Also the US finally caught up to Russia by issuing a semi auto sniper rifle
the Russians issue one per squad. The US playing catch up now has a
designated marksman with a battle useable semi rather than the bolt action
they persisted with for an eternity. Russian snipers train out to 1400m
well past US standard's

Автор TheTabellarius ( назад)
The flash produced from any AK is blinding to the frontal observer & simply
lights up the area for the shooter also it helps identify your comrade in
CQB. The M4 still has major problems with buffers & sub quality components.
Something no AK suffers from since its just meant to be abused. The AK
steel core round has better long range penetration on steel & is noted for
the severity of the wound it causes, where the M4 round is doubtful over
