When AK isn’t OK

Nyet, rifle is not fine.

Not to toot their own horn but Kalashnikov group knows their rifle. There have been several very good AKs made. So many that Vladimir Onokoy, our narrator for this video, can’t really nail down a ‘best‘.

But he will cover the worst.

First up: China.

Now, Chinese AKs actually have a fair reputation here in the United States. Why? The Norinco brands were made for a demanding US Market that will quickly, even back in the 80’s, abandon a firearms maker who fails to produce for the most prosperous 1st world firearm market.

Not all of China’s customers are so discerning or demanding. Some truly do just want the cheapest thing they can get. So they receive the Wish.com AKs and other military equipment. I think I’m going to enjoy this series since it highlights international experiences outside the highly discerning US market.
