4.0 out of 5 stars The AK series., 17 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Kalashnikov Ak-47 Assault Rifle (Weapon) (Paperback)
Quite a reasonable overview of this weapon.This volume has clear text , all the sub-versions are identified in relevant photographs, tactical use and its lengthy development are covered adequately. Initially, I had little adverse comment .
A second read left an impression that something was missing from the picture.
The writer goes to great length to mention that the AK will work virtually anywhere and with any person behind it, a Russian regular or a 12yr old "Freedom fighter" Why is this attribute so famously and clearly correct ?
Unfortunately,there is no clear description of the works or innards of this famous gun . Apart from one coloured diagram, the workings, or anything inside the receiver, are completely ignored. There is not a single picture of any working interior part ,nor of any field-striped example of any version.
Though I accept one has to avoid becoming too technical for the average reader, this account of the iconic AK 47 suffers a little
because its mechanical workings are studiously avoided!

This review is from: Kalashnikov Ak-47 Assault Rifle (Weapon) (Paperback)
Nice Little book on the AK, that gives a quick reference and key data on it's history and development.
Nothing bad to say about it, except the Price...overpriced for what it is, as most Opsrey books are.
