    I will be joining you tomorrow. Picking up an almost brand new (90 rounds through it) WASR-10 for $300. I'm giddy with excitement.

    :werd: I've wanted to get on board for a while, but got worried that I waited too long. I was kicking myself for passing up all of those $300ish deals that were around 6 months ago.

    Gang, it occurs to me that while I am more of an AR- guy than an AK- guy, but in the event of an emergency I ought to be familiar with the handling of an AK.

    What things do I need to know? (I don't know anybody with an AK.)

    Where is the safety?
    Where is the mag release?
    Where is the charging handle?
    Anything else I should know?
    If a 9 year-old can handle one of these things I should be able to figure it out, eh?

    Gracias. :)

    AKs are probably the easiest guns on earth to operate and field strip. It's design is fairly intuitive. It was designed with illiterate farmers as the target users.


    But I can't get the gas tube off my AK for some reason. :dunno:

    Some are on really tight. You should be able to grab it with vice grips and pull or use a punch.
