    funny funny

    this was left pinned to the bulletin board @ my gun club with my name in bold to read.
    "arms and the men"
    article in a local paper.
    by Max Boot.


    ...."the soviet union did not often make a product superior to the American alternative. Nobody in their right mind want to drive a pokey Lada over a speedy corvette....
    ...far more enduring, if more low tech was the development of the world's most ubiquitous firearm:ak47. Western experts initially dismissed this automatic rifle as crude and simplistic. As the new york times correspondent (and former marine) CJ Chivers explains "the gun" - the westeners were used to making with "precision tools that allowed the assembly lines to work within tight tolerances and mill part to an exact fit"
    Thats not how the AK-47 was constructed in Russia's primitive assembly plants by worked who no doubt consumed more vodka than was good for them.
    Anyone who removed the return spring from the AK would find that many parts, when not held by tension would slide and rattle ..Chivers wrote.
    Even on the test range, the AK was not particularly impressive, and its accuracy was inferior to the Western competitors.


    HAHAH

    Exactly how the winning design was created remains murky, but contrary to Soviet propaganda, its clear the Kalashnikov got plenty of help- not only from Russian Contructors, but (MORE EMBARASSING) from a captured German arms designer, Hugo Schmeisser.


    anyhow, if i can scan the entire article it would be better, you will have a better laugh.

    it was only that page, and i dont know which local paper it was printed in. I would love to meet the author...

    Re: funny funny

    This has actually been discussed a few times in recent past since the release of the Chivers book. A lot of folks kind of knew there was more to the story of the creation of the Kalashnikov rifle than what was commonly released.

    I'd imagine in time, there will be more factual information that comes out which shows Kalashnikov didn't have quite the hand in the rifle that most would believe.

    Chivers is a typical NYT reporter, half researched and all rumor then print.

    I have a 1500 dollar 1911 that slides and rattles with the spring out - must be a crude chunk of garbage. What an asshole.

    Re: funny funny

    Opinions are like @$$holes, everybody has one. Doesn't make it good or bad, they just have one. It's funny how some of the simplest things work the best. And without a doubt the AK roots IMHO come from the Stg 44 just like the Beretta 92 roots come from the P38.
