The influence of this rifle goes far beyond Soviet borders. The standard AK47 has served as the basis for spin-offs such as the Egyptian Misr, the Finnish Valmet and the Israeli Galil rifles, and other countries have produced their own versions of the AK47. Many of these rifles are now available in the U.S., but solid information on them is scarce. Author Duncan Long takes the mystery out of the many AK47 variants, giving you essential, hard -to-obtain information, including specifications, streamlined field-stripping, cleaning procedures, troubleshooting, and ammo. 51/2x81/2 ,softcvr, photos, 192 pgs.
