Chinese Kalashnikov: The Poly Tech AKS-762

o why did an AK-47 finally make it to Gun of the Week status over at Blue Book Publications after all these years? There are a few reasons. The first is because the AK-47 and variations have affected our post-WWII civilization more than any other single artifact.

The second reason is its internationally recognized iconic profile with high-cap curved magazine and gas tube over the barrel makes it the most recognizable and loved/hated gun in the world. It’s like a weapon of mass destruction, only in slow motion, and that’s why it has justifiably picked up such nicknames as “the Grim Reaper” and “the Serial Killer.”

The third reason is because next to AR-15s, AK-47s remain one of the hottest selling imported semi-auto carbine/rifles since Obama was elected (and re-elected).

    a much much better AK is the BERYL made in Poland by Fabryka Broni. it is in 5.56×45, and relentless. i have tried to break mine and it will not comply, the barrel has been shot red, burning the furniture and it still does 150meter shots. made me relize the 416 is just a fancy croquet mallet. Do not confuse the Beryl with the Archer. the Archer is an effeminate. they are not the same gun.

    This is the ultimate in mousetrap engineering: Something simple that works every time. We should have adopted it too instead of empowering some weapons makers with more corruption power in Congress.
