Military Week : AK-47


1 June Tuesday - Imma shoot you

Its the starting of June guys , I don't seem excited about this because theres gonna be a school holiday.Two weeks without school is kinda good at first but it gets duller and duller as days go by.Sure , you may go out shopping and maybe travel but once your pocket money is gone , it is back to your nest watching TV or maybe get yourself fat infront of your computer.Unless you are rich then you don't have anything to fear.I don't know if theres any plans ahead for me , I hate dull holidays so much.


I am not an expert in this gun , I am just stating what I learned and researched.The AK-47 was first developed in The Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov , The designation for AK-47 stands for  Kalashnikov Automatic Rifle.The AK-47 fires the 7.62X39mm catridge which produces significant wound effects known as the hydrostatic shock.The AK-47 was one of the first few true assault rifles , its reliability and endurance is legendary.It has low production cost and it is very easy to use.Almost anyone could use this gun with proper license of course.The AK-47 and it's variants remain one of most used assault rifles by the entire world.

Mikhail Kalashnikov began his weapon design in a hospital after being shot at during the Battle Of Bryansk.After tinkering with the sub machine gun design , he entered a gun competition by Elisarov and Semin in 1943.The particular requirement was that the gun could withstand any harsh conditions of Russia.But his design was too heavy so Mikhail went back and created a new design.He then submitted his new design to another contest two years later.It was a gas-operated rifle which had a breech-block mechanism similar to his 1944 carbine, and a curved 30-round magazine.

His designs were accepted along with another weapon designer and his rifles were tested(AK-1 and AK-2).One of his member in his design team suggested a major modification on the AK-1 , which improved the durability and reliability of the rifle.It is then the 1947 model was accepted by the armies of Russia , because of it's easy to use designs and durability in any harsh conditions during wars and battles.

AK-47 has been seen in many of video games , example Modern Warfare , Counter Strike , Bad Company 2 and many more.People has seen AK-47 as a high damage and high recoil assault rifle.It is in fact true that the AK-47 has high recoil , the damage it does cause the recoil to go higher than any other assault rifles.It has been claimed that the AK-47 is more closer to the machine gun than the rifle.Due to it's high recoil and high damage.The AK-47 has in fact influenced the people all around the world to be the baddest of all assault rifles.
