Editorial Reviews

The Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947...otherwise known as the AK-47 was developed by the Soviets in secrecy at the dawn of the Cold War. Its menacing silhouette featuring a curved magazine has gained worldwide recognition...and respect. From Southeast Asia to the Middle East and Central America the Ak47 came to symbolize armed struggle and national liberation... or insurrection and political violence. In a rare television interview Mikhail Kalashnikov the inventor of the AK-47 discusses how he designed the gun and what it was like to work within the secret world of the Soviet military during the Cold War. Simple to use and deadly efficient the AK-47 is one of the most influential guns of the 20th century.

This DVD had a nice balance of data, and interview with the inventor of the AK-47, Mr. Kalashnikov himself. I have never seen a filmed meeting with him before. While I know how to field strip an AK rifle, they should have demonstrated how easy it is to do, and the modular construction.

I sure wish this was longer. Many facts about the history of assault rifles, the designer and the USSR. I am sure there is more that could have been included, maybe there will be a Vol. II.

The greatest gun series of all time!!! If you're a fan of firearms or want to learn more about them, this series is an excellent and entertaining way to go about that... It isn't a reality show, like "Sons of Guns" or "American Guns", but rather an actual educational program, about the history of firearms.

A fascinating account of the man who invented the AK-47 and the AK-74. This DVD is a rare find about the life and genius of Mikhael Kalishnikov
