How To Zero an AK (the Russian Way)

    While I am steadily growing more fond of my AR, I do have a love for my AK.  The simplicity and ruggedness are just things I really appreciate (and the ability to do field repairs with a soda can is helpful too…).

    The guys at put together a short and well explained video on how to zero an AK (the Russian Way, as they titled it).  I’ve been using optics on mine for so long now, that I forget it has those iron sights.  And now I have a reason to go play with my AK naked again (not me naked–I’m referring to the AK).

    Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and runs an on-demand medical staffing business. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
