This is a cool video with lots of vintage Afghan War era footage, taken on the rifle range..
Amen to that. I clicked the CC button and set the captions to English which helped atleast give an idea of what they are talking about (but is far from perfect).At 1:46 that training aid sight is awesome. I know it is useless put i think it would be cool to add to the collection. Nice vid Tantal I just wish I could speek russian.
I'd guess 1987-88? Not sure.Any guess approximately what year the black and white footage is from?
Like most of it's predecessors, and even contemporaries, the AK was designed specifically with right hand operation of cocking handle, selector lever and even magazine changes in mind. Due to leverage, it's just easier and more naturally comfortable to keep a heavy, extended rifle with a short buttstock aimed downrange under safe control with the off hand left on the forearm. Keeping the firing hand on the trigger and using the other hand to control the operations of the firearm is best accomplished on a firearm designed from the onset to facilitate such a procedure. I think that's one of the benefits of the new AK-12 design.Interesting. I found it strange though they actually train them to take their firing hand off the grip and trigger. Guess that's more fman American military thing.
