Right now with the broken wrist, it’s been a pain to do my own hands-on videos. I’ve been wanting to do a “How to Disassemble” an AK-47 type video for the Building an AK-47 series for a while, and I’m tired of waiting to get this cast off. I can do a complete disassembly and reassembly no problem with one hand, but not in a way where the viewer can actually see what’s going on. So I plucked a quality disassembly video off YouTube to let you have an idea of how easy it is to fully field strip and reassemble an AK-47. It’s part of what makes it the greatest battle rifle of all time.
The below video is a great example of disassembly (including simple field strip and full disassembly) of an AK clone from Jim Green, a Desert Storm veteran and former Marine which means he’s plenty good enough for us!
