Original methods of reloading a Kalashnikov assault rifle

77

Disputes about how best to reload an automatic are as old as automatic weapon. So, there are many interesting ways to recharge a Kalashnikov assault rifle - from above, from below, with the right and left hand. Each has its own pros and cons.


Recently, a sufficient number of videos about recharging AKs have appeared on the Web. Soviet classic - reload with the right hand. In the video presented by the Kalashnikov concern, we can observe that with such a reloading scheme, the time cost is 4.59 seconds. With the left hand, the same procedure is performed in 3,62 seconds. "Bottom" and 3,96 seconds. "From above."

The method of so-called looks very original. "Iraqi recharge" AK. The weapon rests on the shoulder, the bolt frame is pulled back and a new store is placed at that moment. In some cases, as shown in the video, Iraqi reloading may be the only effective way to reload weapons.

On the Krav Maga Ukraine channel, we see another way to reload a Kalashnikov assault rifle from Andrei Kudabekov. The author of the video categorically does not advise trying to hold the weapon, resting it on the shoulder, and at the same time reload. First of all, you need to remove the machine under the arm, fixing it, and then we watch the video and evaluate how effective this method is.


Zainal Guns demonstrates yet another way to quickly recharge an AK. Indeed, every second is dear to the military, and life of one’s and his comrades often depends on the speed of reloading weapons, as well as the successful completion of the task. During the shooting, the cartridges ran out, which means the shooter needs to pull out the magazine, remove the empty magazine, take the magazine with cartridges and send the cartridge.


Zaynal shows how the need to send a cartridge is removed. 2 shots are fired, and the third cartridge remains in the chamber. A new magazine is inserted, but there is no need to send a cartridge into the chamber. Thus, extra seconds are reduced.

Let's see some more interesting ways to reload.





However, each shooter has his own view of reloading the machine. Most likely, he will reload the machine in his usual way, honed over the years of service and training. The specific situation in which there is a need to reload weapons is also decisive.

        The capacity is a serious thing, there is a drum for a PC of 75 pieces, there is a horn for 40, but this is subject to 7,62, then the firepower of the unit increases .. In general, the story is interesting.

          And the barrel of the machine will not melt, from 75 rounds at a time. The drum also has a large capacity, because it is designed for an infantry machine gun. In addition, the machine gunner has an assistant who wears this ammunition. Where are you going to be an ordinary infantryman, will you hang spare drums around your neck? laughing It’s a horn in Africa, too, because as an ammunition store, it’s optimal in size, weight and capacity.

        Actually, with the PPSh, the soldiers went through the whole war in such conditions that you and I can hardly imagine.
        The difference between the PCA drive and the PC is about 200 grams !!!
        The whole conversation came down to survival under certain conditions of the war and there the information from the “wiki” does not work there.

          Actually, with the PPSh, the soldiers went through the whole war in such conditions that you and I can hardly imagine.


          1. PPSh very quickly abandoned the drums in favor of the box, for many reasons. One of the main ones is the need to individually finish the drum for a specific PCA (can you imagine how many lives it took?), Also the reason was the high cost and of course the same heavy weight. The image of PPSh as a weapon exclusively with a drum was created by films.
          2. You do not compare the weight of the weapon, but the total weight of the equipment. For example, during the war, a simple soldier did not have body armor weighing 8 kg at least. I am already silent about the heavy options for 20kg. And it’s one thing to carry weapons with a drum in one tunic, and another in a complete set and a backpack behind you.

            Colleague, I do not compare anything, I just say that everyone has their own experience. It was more convenient for me to have a couple or four (if you find) machine gun magazines, in the "bra" they also lie, simultaneously, add. protection, everything else is in paper packs, and even in the airbag you stick anything you like, for example, shots to an RPG a couple or a couple of minutes to a mortar, to a grenade launcher again, or to an ACS the more the better, the efok also needs to be taken in four pieces + 1 NZ, eat-smoke, well, there is a trifle different in the form of "TNT drafts" and a variety of Pribluda.
            So no charters, manuals, recommendations for the Soviet paratrooper in the conditions of the database do not work, but what the senior comrades say, it works in an unquestioning manner! soldier

      In his youth, he was engaged in wrestling, so the coach taught that we do not need to develop the whole complex of techniques. It is necessary to work out 2 - 3 tricks in a bunch before automatism, and then catch the enemy in this bunch. And this is enough to win. So it is here.

    It is not difficult with a machine gun, and then a friend got into a mess with pulling out of the pouch (despite the fact that it is 5,45, not 7,62, where the shops are much more curved). This is the one who shoots at aliens.
    But with a gun more interesting. Yes, and more relevant - at pistol distances this extra fraction of a second is unforgivable.

      Good point! Mostly mud, in the snow, buried in the face of a bump or tree trunk !!! And there, the beautiful gadgets will be far away and off topic.
      In fact, you need to choose your own method. And this requires a stressful situation. I don’t know how to direct it, but the tenth store will be charged with the very technique that will be the most optimal for you !!! Here it must be developed !!!
      On the other hand, you’ll go to battle like a donkey. Here, as it were, this 10 store would be equipped, and not in zinc in a duffel bag !!! So where will this tenth store be unloaded from the right, from the left or on the chest or from the murdered neighbor, my grandmother said in two, and with which hand or foot is more convenient !!!?

          Good evening!
          I’ll add “training” on my own, this is one thing, the real battle is quite another! When bullets fly overhead, for the first time many riot police gave "Gaza", "small river", etc. And they were not taken from the street and prepared for this! So training is a good and even very necessary thing, but “what are you worth” will show only your third fight !!!
          As my coursework said: the first time you crap one's pants and, God forbid, do not shoot each other, the second - describe yourself and God forbid you just realize that it’s your job to lie and wait. The third time, if it comes, you can begin to study!
          Stress is a terrible thing. Once, a drunk man with a slice for chopping cabbage rushed at me. How I plowed from him, I did not understand. I came to my senses only in the department where I had rammed this rowdy, with a cross-section and for some reason with a dunghill! Fucking a pitchfork, I found out after interrogation by an investigator a rowdy! It turns out that all three kilometers to the police department, I drove his fork with a handle. I didn’t remember that !!!
          But the report turned out beautiful. I wrote from the protocols of interrogation of the suspect and witnesses!
          Here somewhere, like that - a cut is not a bullet !!!

But the practical component is very limited. Yes, there was a sect in our regiment and in the school ( in a good sense of the word) hand-to-hand combat (Russian style, A. Kadochnikov): when the AKM was threatened from the front, the trunk was retracted in one jump, the store was unfastened, the cartridge was thrown out of the chamber, all this with berets, or even yuft boots. Effective. But for "widespread use" is inefficient))). Unfortunately, the priority for achey any commander, chief of emergency prevention remains at the loading (unloading) weapons (((...

        We had a little bit wrong. Lying rolled sideways, and not moved on the elbows.
        The head should never stick up. The basic rule is head low to the ground.
        When recharging too: head in helmet - cheek on the ground.
        Shooting from a prone position is rarely convenient: grass and stones obscure the view.
        I can not see anything.
        They shot more from the knee. A couple of "twos" aiming, and you fall on your left hand.
        Roll or crawl to the side - a change of position. Again on the knee - and a couple of cut-offs.

            when a group of soldiers firing and changing positions, I think no one will trace who changed all the time to the left or to the right.
            The main thing is a change of position. who was in the battle at the diets 100-150 at night, knows what to follow and understand what is happening is very difficult. (especially youth)
            shoot, take care of cartridges, change position and hope that your officer understands what he is doing.

        This is a good old video. By the way, it immediately becomes clear that there are no uniform recipes for all cases. For example, a soldier telling in this video explains why they do not use unloading, but basically wears everything on a belt. Because lying on a belly in the woods when bullets whistle directly above your head it’s easier to slightly rise on your side and get something from your belt than to pick it out from unloading

        hi Thanks for the informative video, comrade aka Arzt (Doctor)!
        The fighter is very sensible, without "water" and the case, tells and shows! good
        I was glad for the Russian military intelligence that such tactically competent and creatively thinking, big-headed guys serve in it! good
        The only thing that “hurt my eyes” in this video (as well as in the video of the FSB special forces training in a recent article on VO) is how the heels stick up with the scout when they “lie down” - completely ignores them ?!
        Me and my comrades, even at the first lessons on infantry combat, our, a great deal of tactics teacher, taught me to firmly press my heels to the ground, so that it would be stupid not to expose the bullets and become an uninhibited burden of the unit!
        Suddenly, he comes up behind us, lying down to us, and, from a legone, with an obscene joke-joke, bumps his heels on the heels sticking up and immediately remembers it, "anchors" at the level of reflexes, for the rest of his life (well, how many dozens years have passed, I remember perfectly smile Yes, and who taught me the basics of rifle shooting marks, the Great Patriotic sniper veteran also attached importance to tightly pressing his heels to the ground, as a guarantee of better stability when shooting lying!) - a small but important nuance! yes

    In the second video, as I understand it, the submachine gun is modified so that the shot only happens if there are cartridges in the store and if the store is in its place.
    That is, with an empty store or without it at all, the trigger may be blocked, regardless of the position of the sear.
    Thus, the last cartridge in the store remains in the chamber, but a shot cannot be fired.
    Interestingly, how will such a refinement affect the reliability of the machine and safety?

      An interesting idea! Only it strongly contradicts all instructions on OP, PMB when handling weapons, everything will have to be rewritten.
      In my opinion, such a solution will be even more relevant for short-barrels.
      Although there’s something to think of. There is such a thing as a barrel delay, even on the PM (when all cartridges (from the magazine and the cartridge chamber are used up) are used up, the shutter remains in the rear position, the trigger is raised. After fastening the empty magazine, you can press the barrel delay lever (key). Weapon It’s ready to fire. You can (technically) (mechanically) exclude the last operation (pressing the key) so that when fastening the magazine the shutter is released, the cartridge is locked in the chamber automatically. Apparently, this does not go for a number of reasons.

        or simply not accept for implementation.
        Shutter lag is a well-known technology.
        But at the same time the chamber is empty, and in the second video the machine remains charged when changing the store.
        I doubt that they will go for it.
        and as for
        It is possible (technically) (mechanically) to exclude the last operation (pressing a key) so that when fastening the magazine the shutter is released, the cartridge is locked in the chamber automatically. Apparently, they do not do this for several reasons.

        sometimes they go for it
        e.g. Mauser M1910
        One of the features of these models was the shutter stop in the open position after the last cartridge was shot from the magazine, which significantly reduced the time for reloading and thereby significantly increased the combat characteristics of the pistol. It was enough to insert a charged magazine, while the inserted magazine interacted with the hook, which released the shutter. In addition to the “shutter stop” function, a lever with a protrusion appeared, which, in the absence of cartridges, locked the trigger mechanism.

        but I’m not sure that this is used in modern models, the security requirements are higher than steel.

          In the draft army, this is impossible! Although, I think in no way, because reflex motility does not always work. wink

          Well, in M16, the shutter is also behind the last cartridge. the truth is returned not automatically, but when a special button is pressed. convenient in principle.
          we were taught to beat flat with an empty magazine on this button, small, with a palm it is not always pressed.

      If a cartridge cannot be fired at with a cartridge, then the designer must be sent to Kim Jong-un for firing anti-aircraft guns.

        judging by the second video, you can shoot only if the magazine is fastened with at least one cartridge.

          And if, in addition to jokes, then really - the lack of a Kalashnikov assault rifle is the absence of a slide delay.

            Don't fucking need it .. This ZZ.
            You load TWO-THREE tracer into the store.
            First, when equipping the store.
            And how the tracer passed (it can be seen even during the day) .. you change the store.
            All! The problem of "pulling the shutter" when changing the magazine - solved.

          Bliiin. Always dreamed of getting across the river. And he wrote reports and when they arrived on their own to pick them up. They didn’t let them in. It got to the point that the special officer called and said that they wouldn’t let them go there with talent, especially after some cases in the Union that I would have forgotten to look that way.

      I suspect that with such orders, your unit would, after meeting the enemy, run after 5 minutes of battle.
      since with such an attitude to the soldier this is not a military unit but a poor brothel.

      You can shoot solo, wisely and leisurely. but with unloaded weapons you need to show off as little as possible during the battle.

    The sergeant-master used to say to us in the SA "You’ll be blowing a horn, shepherdess ...., at the machine gun (AK 74 with modifications) a 30-store (if you lock 45 rounds with machine gunners. Also, the machine was charged with a blow to the" plywood ", to the ground, options The guys said (I didn’t see it) that they charged with “swinging the barrel.” The store (horn) is more convenient than the drum one. But AK, after 120 shots it’s normal.

    When retraining, the shooting instructor paid special attention to reloading unless he and the store did not push the earth, branches and other garbage into the machine. That is, try to at least briefly inspect the store before sticking it into the machine, and the store’s receiver itself would be nice to look at. Due to the fact that you had to crawl on the ground and poke around in the mud, and also climb into the bushes and stuff, so even dirt could get into the coolest pouches or, actually, with your hands or the machine itself when moving during shooting you’ll get into which Any guano. And another nuance, there was a separate pouch with a store equipped with tracers (it also had a winding from electrical tape for identification by touch) for target designations, but, in excitement and in the park, there was a chance to use it in the case when this is absolutely not recommended, therefore, with eyes it is more reliable to control than to touch.
    Considering that they were trained to take cover to reload, pretend to be a bump or roll over, trying to count the remaining cartridges in the store and not shoot them to the end, then the difference of 1-2 seconds did not play a role, especially compared to delays in firing. the task of firing to suppress "in short" during the assault was not necessary, in contrast to the specialists of the capture groups.

      In a transparent magazine with 30 rounds, it is clearly visible that the spring occupies over 30% of its length. that is, if you remove it in a regular store, then 43-45 cartridges will fit, the conclusion is time to think how to replace it

    what
    Educational videos, thanks! Regarding the methods of reloading, I did not think about it, now I remember - it hangs ...
    As in a joke: the hedgehog learned to breathe with opoe, sat on a stump and suffocated.
    I think that those who served, went through tactical and fire training will not be retrained, the reflexes have been accumulated.
    Most of the time is spent on removing the store from the pouch or unloading vest pocket.
    The main thing is to develop the reflex of joining the store to the reception window without looking.
