Truly, AK47 is that kind of firearms, that became widely known even among the groups that have never touched a gun in their life. The weapon owes its popularity to media culture. The image of AK47 is often encountered in video games, novels, films, comic books, basically any pieces that cover warfare and action shooting.
Thanks to Hollywood, most people remember AK47 as a typical action movie antagonist weapon. Also, they believe in a wide range of other myths and stories connected with this rifle.
The official name of the firearm was AK or Avtomat Kalashnikova released in 1949. AK47 was the name of the prototype designed in 1947 and used in military trials. The name “AK47” was also mentioned in a short manual that had been written before AKs were used as military ammunition and had no official name. The name AK47 was popularized in Western culture and re-introduced into the post-Soviet Russia at some point.
Yes, some people believe that a shot from AK47 is so precise and powerful that it can pierce a railroad rail along its entire length. Luckily, no one has tried it otherwise it would have been a grim case about a ricochet gone wrong. Sure, AK47 can do considerable damage to steel, especially when loaded with armor-piercing rounds, but the majority attributes the destructive penetration to the weapon itself believing that M43 rounds are more than enough to do the trick.
This widespread myth makes many gun-savvy people cringe. If there is a self-cleaning firearm, it’s definitely not on our planet and not in this galaxy. But where did that assumption about AK47 came from? We have David H. Hacksworth to thank for this:
“I pulled the bolt back and fired 30 rounds — the AK could have been cleaned that day rather than buried in glug for a year or so. That was the kind of weapon our soldiers needed, not the confidence-sapping M16”
As always, reality is a lot more boring. Sure, AK47 is a highly reliable firearm that can perform in the toughest condition. However its qualities don’t make in immune from bolt sticking, corrosion, jamming, dirt, and debris clogging the barrel and other issues that are common for any firearm that doesn’t get timely cleaned, lubricated and checked up. Not only does AK47 get dirty, it actually gathers dirt quicker due to the larger number of crevices that collect dust and debris - and the consequences of using a jammed, clogged, unmaintained AK47 as graphic as one can imagine. So leave magic self-cleaning weapons to novelists and take good care of your weapons.
