Fast AK Reload

This short video clip was posted on World Special Forces’ Facebook account. The manipulation is expertly executed quickly. The reloads are fast between shots. The third and final string is impressive as he had his Glock chamber empty. I wish we knew how far the steel target was.

    Now that is lightning fast.

    Show me a video where somebody takes cover before doing a mag change or does it on the run and I will be impressed. Even as fast as this guy is, he still isn’t faster than a bullet. This is a great example of mall ninja mentality.

      On the run is a good one. I learned quite a bit about workspace when running and reloading. The mag is jiggling around, the gun is jiggling around, your eyes are jiggling around, now make all three work together.

      I see it when I teach people run-down drills. Dude thinks he’s hot with his AR… Until you have them sprint shoot reload sprint shoot reload. So much fall apart.

      why be practical when you can be tacticool?

  • Martin Grønsdal

    well, the bullet from that short barreled kalashnikov has a speed of 847 metres pr. second. I could hear it took the bullet 0,04722 seconds to impact the steel.

    It makes the target 40 metres away.

      If it took 0.04722 seconds to impact the steel by sound, keep in mind that the bullet travels out to the target at 847 m/s, but the sound travels back that same distance. at 343 m/s (sea level). From that I get 11.5 metres and change.

      t = d/v1 + d/v2
      0.04722 = d/847 + d/343
      0.04722 = d/847 + 2.470d/847
      0.04722 = 3.470d/847

      I think I got that right. But it is monday, after all.

      • Martin Grønsdal

        you forget one thing;

        I could feel the impact

        • Darkpr0

          Curses, I have been vanquished!

  • Rokurota

    Wouldn’t it be easier to load the magazines with more than one round?

    • Cal S.

      Just not as flashy.

    • Mc Cain

      He does not need more than one round. One shot. One kill. ’nuff said.

    Good reload practice.

  • Mcameron

    was anyone else waiting for him to yell “Tiiieeeme!”…?

  • jinx

    damn, that’s fast…impressive.

  • Mc Cain

    Did his AK have a left-side charging handle?

    • Dual sport

      Yes. You’ll notice his right hand never leaves the pistol grip during the rifle reload.

      • Matt Grimes

        You’ll also notice if you watch it again, he moves his hand under the gun to the right side to charge the gun. Very common technique.
