About the fastest ways to recharge the Kalashnikov

25
The Kalashnikov Concern presents another video dedicated to the rifle production manufactured at the concern’s facilities. arms. The video is devoted to the discussion of various kinds of myths associated with the Kalashnikov machine gun. Technical consultant Vladimir Onokoy discusses how to reload these weapons in a better and more efficient manner.


From the material:
On the Internet and in the shooting ranges, people furiously argue with each other and are ready to literally strangle their opponent, proving that they are right.

Changing the magazine with sending the cartridge to the chamber with the left hand “from below” - 3,62 time from, “from above” - 3,96 from.

Changing the shop in the Soviet classics - with the right hand: on the electronic stopwatch, the value of 4,59 has frozen.

"Iraqi" reloading, when the weapon rests heavily on the shoulder, the slide frame is retracted, and at that moment the automatic magazine is replaced.

The author of the video notes that at first glance this method looks ridiculous, however, there are cases when the “Iraqi” option is the only one possible for recharging. What is this case? You can learn about it from the presented video.

In the video, it is noted that in fact the one that he trains is the fastest way to recharge.

      In the army, the same about the earth or wooden floor recharged.

    Well, if the shutter cannot be distorted due to the mismatch of the tolerances for the manufacture of the store and the front window, then I directly do not know what kind of army it is ... some partisans? Shops on the knee sawing files? Further - in my opinion, the method is suitable for ANYONE - the main thing is that it should be trained to automatism. BUT! Where is the magazine pouch hanging? On right. Total, for this option of placing the pouch, reloading with the left hand is absurd. Conclusion - everyone masturbates as he wants, I masturbate as I want.

      Recharging with your left hand is not absurd and the store can be not only in the pouch. Reloading with the left hand has a plus. If you do not burn the store to the bottom, the cartridge remains in the barrel. If the enemy tries to kiss on reload, you can shoot. This is sometimes important.

        It is extremely dangerous to recharge under direct enemy fire without going into cover even with one cartridge, I don’t think that the advantage of one cartridge will be so significant here, especially if the rate of reloading the left will be inferior to the right.

          Do you know what "catch on reloading" means?
          What does that direct fire have to do with it?

    Firstly, it was not an army. Secondly, a magazine pouch hangs where you hang it. I had a gun on my right.

    The method of reloading is better to have one that ensures the safety of the fighter (and his comrades), working at different positions of the body (standing, running, sitting, lying, etc.). Well, worked out, as noted above.

      Life depends on recharging. Here the more ways the better. Seasoned warriors in the army trained us, it used to pull the right hand with a belt in an elbow wound to the body and shoot as you like, like it’s wounded. The benefit of the cartridges was like sunflower seeds. Usually three single, reload and three bursts. It also looks or not.

    I sent the cartridge to the chamber on the run hitting the butt with akm on a tree, but with ak 74 it didn’t work, the mass of the shutter is less or I mean the return spring

      It doesn’t always work with a full magazine, but if there are 20 rounds in a magazine, it almost always works. Only from such experiments the butt soon begins to play, but this is not good.

    And it was not easier to initially design a weapon with a loading handle on the left side. The fighters told Kalashnikov about this back in Afghanistan, but he had one argument: "My machine gun is the most licensed in the world" and it's not for you to teach me how to build weapons. In my opinion, Mikhal Timofeich was "not quite right" in this matter. hi

      Initially, Mikhail Timofeyich designed a weapon precisely with the handle of the bolt frame precisely on the left. This option is called AK-46. But nobody needed this, alas.

    I still can’t understand why all right-handed people want to charge the machine with the left hand, hold the machine with the left hand firmly pressing the butt to the shoulder and reload it with the right handle and you will understand what a comfortable Kalash

    Interesting options, but for the infantry this scattering of shops will not work. The infantry battle is not 5 minutes. The store shot, we need to equip it again. And if you throw the store, then kill time with his searches? No guys, we don’t need such hockey.
    It’s a classic when an empty store is removed or a cartridge pouch and inserted a new one. Everything else is show-off, because even the coolest special does not put his life and completed task in dependence on the speed of the store’s shift.

    I would rename the heading - On the most stupid ways to recharge the Kalashnikov machine gun.
    The reloading handle on the right means that reloading should be done right. If you can, and you want the left - even if you want it, the weapon is designed to reload the right one. The rest of the evil one.

      Correctly. Recharging with the left hand is practiced by users of Heckler and Koch, where the handle is on the left, it is easier for them to adapt to reload Kalash with their left hand than to retrain with the right))) That's all.

        Dmitry et al ... The reload handle is more correctly ergonomically on the left side, with all the consequences. The main thing is, then the right hand remains on the handle and holds the weapon, and only the left manipulates, then adjusting to the shoulder comes out faster, and is ready to shoot (interception by the hands disappears). We have already spoken about this above (Sea Cat), and the answer of M.T. Kalashnikov needs to be understood that there is no desire to redo the mass-produced machine, because it involves tests, approvals and other red tape matters, not counting the alteration of mass production ..... .

    Apparently everyone does it as convenient. As I did it right, I continue, and I do not care about American show-offs.
