Russian Spetsnaz Working Out With The PKM Machine Gun

Here you have a number of videos assembled to show a ton of shooting of the venerable 7.62x54R PKM machine gun by Spetsnaz operators.

You get to see the drills and they wrap up with some SVD and RPG action. Pretty cool.

Hand operated belt loader.

Here’s the Video

Russian FSB Conducting Exercises

This Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) is focused on security within Russia. This includes counter-intelligence, border security, surveillance, organized crime, counter-terrorism and federal law violations.

In support of the FSB’s activities, it retains an estimated 4,000 special operations forces. Of course, one of the hallmarks of any special forces group is extensive training. The Grey Shop assembled the following video of publicly released footage from a variety of training exercises both land and sea based. I find the tactics and weapons of interest and most of this I have not seen before.

I’m always watching for small arms in these videos and you’ll notice there are AK rifles as well as AKS-74U, AS VAL, a Brügger &Thomet MP9, and PP-19-01 Vityaz.

The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War (Hardcover)

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“The best true spy story I have ever read.”JOHN LE CARRÉ

The celebrated author of Double Cross and Rogue Heroes returns with his greatest spy story yet, a thrilling Americans-era tale of Oleg Gordievsky, the Russian whose secret work helped hasten the end of the Cold War.


If anyone could be considered a Russian counterpart to the infamous British double-agent Kim Philby, it was Oleg Gordievsky. The son of two KGB agents and the product of the best Soviet institutions, the savvy, sophisticated Gordievsky grew to see his nation’s communism as both criminal and philistine. He took his first posting for Russian intelligence in 1968 and eventually became the Soviet Union’s top man in London, but from 1973 on he was secretly working for MI6. For nearly a decade, as the Cold War reached its twilight, Gordievsky helped the West turn the tables on the KGB, exposing Russian spies and helping to foil countless intelligence plots, as the Soviet leadership grew increasingly paranoid at the United States’s nuclear first-strike capabilities and brought the world closer to the brink of war. Desperate to keep the circle of trust close, MI6 never revealed Gordievsky’s name to its counterparts in the CIA, which in turn grew obsessed with figuring out the identity of Britain’s obviously top-level source. Their obsession ultimately doomed Gordievsky: the CIA officer assigned to identify him was none other than Aldrich Ames, the man who would become infamous for secretly spying for the Soviets. 

Unfolding the delicious three-way gamesmanship between America, Britain, and the Soviet Union, and culminating in the gripping cinematic beat-by-beat of Gordievsky’s nail-biting escape from Moscow in 1985, Ben Macintyre’s latest may be his best yet. Like the greatest novels of John le Carré, it brings readers deep into a world of treachery and betrayal, where the lines bleed between the personal and the professional, and one man’s hatred of communism had the power to change the future of nations.

The Crimson Beret: Who Else but Us? Revelations by a Special Forces Officer (Paperback)

In this book, the author not only reveals the secrets of how the elite Special Forces are trained for action, but also discusses all the unpleasant, negative aspects of the Russian Army. For that, Russia’s military officials scored him severely, whereas commanders of operational units engaged in battle missions to buy The Crimson Beret and use it as a training aid for their officers and soldiers. The Crimson Beret is a story of modern-day Spartans, fearless and invincible warriors, of real men, cavaliers of today, and of beautiful, wise women who support their men with the power of their love thereby inspiring the men’s feats. The book also explores genuine friendship and the brotherhood of warriors, real courage and heroism, and self-sacrifice and reckless bravery. Gennadii Ternovskii was born and grew up in the city of Pyatigorsk. In 1993, after he finished school, he entered Novosibirsk Military Academy of the Internal Troops of Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs. As he graduated from the Military Academy in 1998, he qualified for the Sixth SWAT Detachment of the Internal Troops of Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, known as “Vityaz.” He took part in the counterterrorist mission in the Northern Caucasus and the special release hostage mission at Dubrovka Theatrical Center (the “Nord-Ost” musical). In 2005, when he quit the army, he started his theatre and movie career and began writing books. Publisher’s website: http:// sbprabooks.com/GennadiiTernovskii

Larry Vickers Interview in Russia – Is the AK Outdated?

During his visit to Russia in 2018, Larry Vickers was interviewed by
Vladimir Onokoy, a technical consultant with the Kalashnikov Concern, about Larry’s views on the traditional AK platform.

The two discussed a number of topics and I’ll just hit some personal highlights that I found interesting:

  • Larry mentioned that people get hung up on the design of the safety and the short sight radius but the positives of the design far outweigh the negatives. This is especially true because the safety works just fine once you get used to it and the addition of a good red dot is a game changer. I agree with both points.
  • Vladimir asked Larry his caliber preference. Larry said if he had to only pick one, it would be 7.62×39. That’s definitely my go-to caliber for the rifle.
  • Larry made a really interesting point – the tapers of the 7.62×39 and 5.45×39 aid in reliable feeding in the AK platform. The 5.56×45 is at a disadvantage because it does not have the same degree of taper. That caught my attention – I never really stopped and thought about the impacts of case taper on reliability given how to AK operates. Interesting point.

So, is the AK obsolete? In my opinion, it is an extensible platform but watch this interesting video and here Larry’s thoughts first hand.

Very cool Military Motivational Video – The Devil Inside You

I like military tribute videos.  This video has a catchy song and the real neat thing is that it is in high-definition (HD) video.  It has footage of men and women from a lot of different militaries and branches including:  Austria, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden – probably more that I didn’t catch.

You’ll also get a chance to see quite a collection of ships, helicopters, uniforms, small arms, bases and what not – all in high def.  Very cool.  Here are some examples of the many cool videos they assembled:

Seriously, this is a cool video and a chance for a lot of folks to see other men and women serving their countries.  At 1:41, I got a kick out of the Russian operator wearing an “Infidel Strong” morale patch.

Here’s the 2017 video:

Watch This Amazing Video of Larry Vickers Shooting the AK-107 With No Recoil

Okay, once in a while I watch a video and my jaw drops.  Larry Vickers visited Russia and got to shoot a new AK-107.  Unfortunately, it’s unlikely we will ever get to see this amazing piece of engineering on this side of the pond thanks to politicians.

The AK-107 is a chambered in 5.45×39 and uses a novel balanced gas system and the AK designator does not mean Avtomat Kalashnikova as we are so used it. Instead, it means  Alexandrov/Kalashnikov.

Larry dumped a 97 round magazine and I was stunned to see how little the rifle moved.  That is some seriously controllable accurate firepower.  The AK-107s rate of fire is rated at 850 rounds per minute and he dumped the drum!!  Seriously – wow!!

Watch this video:

Just a parting comment – They also make an AK-108 in 5.56×45 NATO and a lesser known AK-109 in 7.62×39.  I’m a huge fan of 7.62×39 and can only imagine what that round must be like coming from that mechanism – wow.


Here is the link to Larry’s book on AK rifles that he is selling directly and not through Amazon.

Case Club Pre-Made AK-47 Waterproof Rifle Case with Accessory Box and Silica Gel to Help Prevent Gun Rust (Misc.)

The Case Club AK-47 rifle case is the best out there. The precut foam will fit your rifle nice and snug for secure transportation and storage. The case will also hold your rifle magazines, full size or compact pistol, pistol magazines, silica gel canister (included), waterproof accessory box (also included), & more in the generic accessory pockets. The case itself is waterproof, dustproof, & has a built in pressure equalization valve for changing altitudes. It is heavy duty enough to ship or check on an airplane and can handle all the abuse from TSA agents. Five built in heavy duty latches ensure nothing gets in or out. Two latches are even keyed for extra security (set of keys included). Padlockable holes are also built right in, which can take standard sized padlocks so you can be guaranteed this case is safe & secure. The foam insert is closed cell military grade polyethylene which can be wiped clean if wet or oily. The foam is perforated above the main rifle cutout so you can remove the foam (with included knife!) as needed to customize the insert for your unique optics. The pistol cutout is also perforated so a full size fits just as snug as a compact. The two cutouts for the rifle magazines can hold either 10, 20 or 30 round regular or pmag magazines. Reusable silica gel canister is included to remove moisture from within the case. Once the silica gel is saturated just pop it in the oven to cook out the moisture & use it again. A waterproof accessory box is also included, and it is perfect for storing your cleaning supplies and small tools. The lid holds a foam combination of convoluted (egg crate) & closed cell polyethylene, specifically engineered to hold everything down perfectly. This case is compact, organized, & uses all available space to the fullest.

  • Waterproof case comes with precut foam to hold AK-47 Rifle

The latest about the Vepr and Saiga import bans and the Kalashnikov Group Rebranding

gI_60121_Kalashnikov Concern

As you may know, in July 2014 the owner, Rostec, of the Baikal, Saiga and Vepr brands was put on the US sanctions list to punish Russia.  That apparently put a halt to about half of a 200,000 rifle deal being halted that they are now trying to find other buyers for and is hurting them financially:  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30404648

Kalshnikov group is trying hard to improve the brand’s reputation and has approximately 30 different brands in the works.  As of 12/5/2014, they say they are focusing on Africa, Latin America and Asia-Pacific markets and not the US.  What I would read into that is that they are not publicly pushing to get back into the US.  Given how huge the market is here, I can’t help but feel they are still trying to get back in but there isn’t any public information about their efforts.  The two following stories about their rebranding efforts are interesting:

http://rbth.com/defence/2014/12/05/kalashnikov_targets_expansion_with_large-scale_rebranding_exercise_41991.html

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/12/prweb12365634.htm

Unfortunately, as of today, December 14th, there are no indications that we are going to see the Vepr or Saiga rifles coming back into the US any time soon.  Putin’s friends are still making a ton of money and the sanctions aren’t changing his mind any. The problem with sanctions in general is that they sound good politically but often don’t work very well.

The change in ownership from the huge Russian conglomerate known as “Rostec State Corporation” to the private individuals of Alexei Krivoruchko and Andrei Bokarev hasn’t yielded any changes thus far.  The initial hope was that by moving ownership of the Kalashnikov to someone/or a group not on the named sanctions list would improve the situation but that does not seem to be the case thus far.

Bottom line, no changes or “cracks” in the import ban are visible via publicly accessible news stories and such.  It would look like we are stuck, and will be for the foreseeable future, on the sidelines still unable to import the Russian weapons.
