How Does an AK-47 Assault Rifle Work? See Inside the most famous assault rifle as it fires! {VIDEO}


How an AK-47 Works

  1. When the trigger is pulled,  the hammer releases and strikes the firing pin.
  2. The Firing pin strikes the primer which contains a compound that explodes to ignite gun powder inside the case.
  3. Expanding gases force the gas piston backward to cycle the bolt
  4. The 'bolt carrier' is forced back, ejecting the casing
  5. The Bolt pulls a new round from the magazine and inserts it into barrel.
  6. The Bolt carrier also resets the hammer to the starting position.
  7. The sear keeps the hammer in place until the bolt carrier returns to the forward position and locks the bolt.
  8. To fire in automatic, the 'selector' is moved to the middle position.
  9. This holds the 'disconnector' back, keeping it from catching the hammer while the trigger is pressed.
