Great Video of Ian McCollum and Larry Vickers Discussing the History of AK-47 Rifles

Two guys I really respect, Ian McCollum of Forgotten Weapons and Larry Vickers discuss the history of the AK-47 and also show Larry’s new book on AK rifles.  They cover a ton of information through questions submitted by Ian’s followers.  For people into the history of the Kalashnikov rifle, this is well worth your time.

Here is the link to Larry’s book that he is selling direction and not through Amazon.

Sage and Braker Mercantile Gun Cleaning Kits, .30 cal, .303 cal, .308 cal and 7.62mm (Misc.)

Advantages of Using Sage & Braker’s Bore Cleaning Kits
– One pass gun cleaning
– Made with highest quality components available
– Copper brush detaches from rope portion for easy and safe cleaning of rope
– Brass weight is stamped with gauge or caliber for easy identification
– Comes in a rugged canvas bag to keep your bore cleaning kit compact and organized

Easy to Use
– Apply favorite bore cleaning solvent to copper brush
– Add favorite gun lubricant a few inches from end of cleaning rope
– Drop brass weighted cord down the unloaded barrel of the gun
– Pull cord through the barrel and the rest will follow
– That’s it! One pull through and you’re done
– After heavy use, remove rope portion and toss into the washing machine for cleaning

100% Guaranteed
– If for any reason you don’t like it, send it back for a refund, no questions asked

*If ejection port is smaller than 3 inches gun must be disassembled to clean

Choose your caliber or gauge and click “Add to Cart” above


Features: 

  • SUPERIOR INNOVATION // While other bore snakes are made of cheap materials, fewer bristles weakly woven into the rope, sloppy stitching, thin pull cords that do not pass through your gun’s bore correctly or worst of all, brake and damage your bore, but NOT with Sage & Braker. Our bore cleaning kits are made with the highest quality materials, use a full bronze brush for superior cleaning, offer a detachable buffing rope and properly fit each caliber and gauge to ensure the best clean.
  • TIME SAVER // 15 SECONDS…That’s all it takes to clean your bore with Sage & Braker’s gun cleaning kit. Let’s be honest, we all love shooting our firearms, but cleaning them can be a hassle. Just a couple sprays of our CLP and a mighty pull of one of our bore cleaning kits and your firearm is ready to go for your next time out! Get a deeper clean in a fraction of the time.
  • A BETTER CLEAN // You like the ease of a bore snake but the cleaning power of the traditional rod and brush, right? We give you the best of both worlds with our bore cleaning kit. Unlike the competition’s product that adds a few bronze bristles to their cleaning rope, our kit gives you a full bronze brush and a fully detachable, longer buffing rope that gives you a deeper, faster clean.
  • WHAT WE STAND FOR // Sage & Braker was born out of a need to create the finest gun cleaning supplies on the market as well as give back to the hunting, firearms and outdoor community. We are a Life Member with Backcountry Hunters & Anglers and work with various other conservation groups to protect the legacy of our lands for generations to come.
  • PRESERVING YOUR LEGACY // Your firearms are an investment, a tool, memories passed down through the generations and your legacy. We know as much as you the importance of protecting such legacies from rust, corrosion and performance failures caused by a dirty gun. To do so requires the best products the market. Sage & Braker is your answer. We are your headquarters to help care for your firearm’s legacy. We cut no corners in our products and we will cut no corners in our support to you.

Very Cool AK Assembly Video From WBP Rogów – Tons of Tooling Shown

This past Spring I built a Polish Beryl inspired rifle from a WBP kit imported by Arms of America and was very impressed by the quality.  I was surfing around on Youtube and ran into this really cool video posted by WBP Rogow showing how they build an AK.  I found all the specialized tooling fascinating and was also a bit surprised by the amount of hand fitting – they are putting some craftsmanship into those rifles.

So, I would highly recommend you watch this video if you are considering buying one of the imported Polish WBP rifles or pistols, one of their kits or you are just interested in how AKs are built in general.

By the way, Arms of America is a great firm to deal with.  I built the following AK from a WBP barreled kit from them with a cold hammer forged Polish barrel.  The reliability and accuracy are excellent.

Cool Video of The Parts Break Down and Operation of a Type 2 Milled AK

I posted a Forgotten Weapons video a few months back  where Ian does a great overview of the Type 2 Avtomát Kaláshnikova (AK).  Џон Ивошевић shared with me this cool computer animation of the parts and operation of a Type 2.

This is incredibly detailed – if you are into AK rifles, this is worth watching:

I’m amazed and hope you find it cool as well.

Video: How to Choose a Geissele or ALG Defense Trigger With Bill Geissele – The Man Himself!

  

For years I have have heard how great Geissele (pronounced Guys-Lee) triggers are.  They offer a ton of models so I actually called them and talked about what trigger to use for a target rifle – which is the rifle shown above.  After some talking, the gentleman I talked to recommended their Super Semi-Automatic Enhanced (SSA-E) trigger.  I bought it direct from them and have been very happy.  Here are the SSA-E specs on the trigger direct from the Geissele web page:

Type: 2 Stage
1st Stage Weight: 2.3lbs.
2nd Stage Weight: 1.2lbs.
Total Pull Weight: 3.5lbs.
Adjustable: No
Recommended Use:  Target Shooting, Precision Shooting
Pin Size: Mil-Spec

After shooting with it, I can tell you it is my favorite AR trigger hands down.  Now I know why guys swear by them.  The only con is the cost but you are definitely getting value in return.

I was surfing around on Youtube and found this video today – I wish I had known about it before as it would have helped me also.  Bill Geissele, the man himself, walks you through their 15 models of triggers and answers common questions he gets about them.  I definitely want to try one of their Super 3-Gun (S3G) or Super Dynamic 3-Gun (SD-3G) triggers in the future and will definitely go the SSA-E route again if I build another precision rifle.

By the way, unless you are in a rush, Geissele triggers go on sale 2-3 times per year at Midway, Brownells, Primary Arms and other sources.  I paid $240 for my trigger and could have saved 40% if I had timed my purchase better.  That’s what I am doing with my 3-Gun trigger purchase – just waiting for the next sale.

Video: Building AK47 (AKM) with Definitive Arms by AK Operators Union, Local 47-74

          

Back in 2015, Rob Ski went to Definitive Arms to build an AK.  In this video, they really get into the details of building an AK and anyone regardless of experience level is bound to learn something.  You can watch in this 36:13 video as Rob builds his AK under the expert tutelage of the guys at Definitive Arms.

There are some great tips in here for riveting, getting the barrel blocks on square, etc.  Definitely worth your time.  After watching all these build videos, I really wish I had the time to build another.

Video: How to build an AK-47, AK-74, AKM. Complete video tutorial by bfgmovies — Best Rivet and Virgin Barrel Build Video I’ve Seen!

Folks, once in a while I find out a snap judgement I made is very wrong.  I was watching AK Build videos on Youtube and ran across this video with a very young man with long hair and anime shirt sitting down to talk about building an AK.  I almost snorted because it must be some kind of a gag.  Within the first five minutes I realized this young man was very knowledgeable, articulate and very capable at demonstrating how to build an AK.  I was floored.  I almost missed this because my snap judgement was so off.  Wow.  Watch this.

This young man assembled a 55:59 long video showing you how to do an AK build with a manufactured receiver using a virgin barrel and he explains things along the way.  To give you an idea of the quality, this video was posted in May 2013, has had 104,441 views, 1,114 thumbs up approvals and only 74 thumbs down.  Folks, that is remarkable.

I am sharing a number of photos from the video to get you to realize this is really good.  He steps you through everything including aligning the blocks on the barrels, the barrel to the receiver, drilling pin holes, headspacing, setting rivets and then final assembly, including installation of the fire control group (FCG), function testing, installing the furniture, and finally winding up with applying Alumahyde II from Brownells as the finish.  I’d honestly say it is the best AK build video I have seen thus far that takes you all the way through the process.  This is really worth your time.

P.S.  The music and anime at the end is a nice touch 🙂

In this fourth installment, you can see usmcdoc14’s welding results and he discusses how to trim the top rails.  Note, a lot of flats and receivers now have pre-cut top rails so you only need to trim them if they look like what you see in the video – big, wide and straight.

Video: How to build an AK47 from scratch part 3 by usmcdoc14 [He is doing a weld build]

   

Now in this video he shows how he does the actual welding of the front trunnion.  I will definitely post some videos on how to do rivet builds also.  For guys looking to build authentic AKMs with sheet metal receivers that is the route to go.  I’m not disparaging weld builds – I’ve done at least three that I can recall.  For home builders you have three methods and they all work if you take your time to learn and then build them the right way – rivets (the traditional and proven best approach for full-auto military use), weld builds and screws.

Video: How to build an AK47 from scratch part 2 by usmcdoc14

  

Here is the second video in usmcdoc14’s series about building an AK using a flat.  He still swears left and right (which I find hilarious – when he said “sandblast the shit out of them” I started laughing) and gives you some good recommendations on checking the past receiver stub from the kit.  He talks about his approaches for weld and rivet builds.  He does make one comment I don’t agree with.  To press out the barrel from the rear trunnion you do not need to remove the rear sight block (RSB) – you just push out the barrel pin out and then press the barrel out.  Second, and this is just my opinion, with a weld build I would still drill some holes where the rivets were at and do plug welds otherwise you are going to pour on a ton of heat, may still not get good penetration and risk ruining the heat treat of the trunnion locking lugs.

Other than that, I think it is a good video and worth you watching and learning from.  Your best bet is to watch multiple guys and decide what works for you.
