The original AK-47, and its many, many variants, represents one of the most iconic guns in the history of firearms. Designed in the years following World War Two, Mikhail Kalashnikov’s Avtomat Kalashnikova became one of the most prolific and dependable rifles of all time, with the standard model and its plethora of successors seeing use in countless skirmishes, battles and wars across the globe.
Today, in addition to still being used by a number of military forces around the world, many semi-automatic AK rifles have found their way to – or have been produced specifically for – the civilian commercial market. Of course, the AK is not quite as universal to American shooters as its more common contemporary, the AR-15, but there are plenty of folks out there interested in picking up, or learning more about the AK.

In the Gun Digest Shooter’s Guide to AKs, AK expert and former Soviet Spetsnaz operator Marco Vorobiev provides a comprehensive look at the AK’s history, its inner workings and proper use, how to customize the rifle and detailed market insights on where to buy an AK and how much to spend.

The Gun Digest Guide to the Modern AK, on the other hand, focuses more on the AK as a modern tactical firearm.
