A Slight Twist On The AK Reload

    S.T.A. Training Group walks Lil Red thru the fundamentals of a tactical reload using an AK style weapon. The twist comes in when he hits the mag release with the fresh magazine. He bases this on the possibility of inducing a malfunction when utilizing the top end of the magazine. The instructor says that if you miss the magazine release with the mag in your hand, then that mag will strike the one in the gun. Which could cause the top round to slide forward due to inertia. If the top round shifts position, it can create a malfunction when loading it into the weapon.
