AK-47 Upgrades: How To Choose The Best Accessories Online

AK-47 Upgrades: How To Choose The Best Accessories OnlineThe AK-47 has been around for 70 years. It was designed at the end of World War II in Russia in 1945 and presented for military trials in 1946. Today, the AK-47 is one of the most popular firearms in the world. The AK-47 is simple, rugged, and durable—it rarely gets jammed and it’s the ideal weapon for warfare; however, AK-47s aren’t perfect. Or at least AK-47s aren’t perfect just the way they are.

AK-47s are supplied with a 387-millimeter long 6H3 bayonet that features a 200-millimeter long spear point blade and the weapon can mount a cup-type grenade launcher that fires standard RGD-5 Soviet hand-grenades. All current AK-47s have side rails for mounting a variety of scopes and sighting devices too. The side rails allow for removal and remounting of optical accessories without interfering with the zeroing of the optic. The major selling points of the AK-47 include simplicity, reliability, and easy to use and repair. But, AK-47s aren’t the most accurate weapons! Here are 5 accessories that greatly improve the operation of AK-47s:

1. Magazine Loader

The purpose of a magazine loader is simple: It’s to load magazine faster. All you do is slip the loader over the top of a magazine, work the lever, and load magazines with mechanical advantage.

2. Adjustable Trigger

The factory trigger on AK-47s can be gritty and unpleasant. Some AK-47s suffer from what is called ‘trigger slap,’ which is caused by the trigger being smacked by the disconnector as the hammer resets. The trigger rebounds forward and slaps the shooter’s finger, which hurts. This problem can be easily fixed by grinding the metal down in a certain way or the trigger group can be replaced with a modern adjustable trigger.

3. Adjustable Stock

AK-47s usually come with a traditional fixed stock in wood or polymer. Some AK-47s have folding stocks that make the gun compact to carry but these can easily pinch your finger. With an adjustable stock, you can use any AR-15 style stock and eliminate these inconveniences.

4. Rails

When it comes to adding and mounting rails to an AK-47, there are a lot of AK-47 accessories to pick from. There are optic mounts designed to fit the integral scope rail found on more-modern AK-47s. Rails allow shooters to add optics on AK-47s, such as: a red dot, reflex sight, or lo-powered scope.

5. Optics

The Bushnell TRS-25 red dot is a great optic choice that offers long and unlimited eye-relief sight. A good optic that holds zero makes it easier to hit targets.

Improve Your AK-47 With Accessories

AK-47s are rugged, which makes them the perfect weapon for any kind of environment situation and for people who are not the best about maintaining their weapons. AK-47s can last anywhere between 20 and 40 years. The 5 above accessories can greatly improve how you shoot and how well you shoot. But where can you find them?
