Participated in basic rifle shooting course. Topics which were discussed: ballistics, shooting stance, transitions, magazine changes, double tap. I was using my AKM (AK-47 mod) but there were a lot of participants with AR-15 and two with Kriss Vector submachinge guns (semi-auto).
Offtopic abot AK-47 today. This suppressor is built for 7.62×39 caliber. Manufacturer has suppressors for other calibers as well. This is the 3rd Generation of the Strela suppressors. First suppressor was made by this company after the start of war on the east of Ukraine. Army, law enforcement and special forces needed inexpensive and quality suppressors for their work.

Magpul AK-47/AK-74 Grip MOE
Factory AK-47 grip is not very comfortable. You are going to feel this after just 15 minutes of dry fire drills.
I was waiting for AK-47 grip from Magpul for a long time. The result is pretty good: simple and effective grip which replaces standard one easily.
After tests on a shooting range, I can tell you that Magpul AK-47/AK-74 Grip MOE is very comfortable upgrade which I really like. Installation is simple and fast, shorter bolt included.
The price of the Magpul AK-47 grip is just $20 which makes it very affordable. Must have for any AK-47!
Also, you can have some spare parts or batteries inside the grip, which is another good feature.
Texture of the grip is very good and enables you to have good positive grip.
Magpul AK-47 grip enables you to have more reliable and more comfortable grip thus having more control over your weapon.

Standard safety is not the fastest on this firearm. You will need to remove your firing hand from the pistol grip to disengage it. The solution to this is a modified safety, which enables you to disengage it using your trigger finger.
The standard AK handguard is made of wood or plastic, and it doesn’t have rails to attach additional equipment. Wood handguards are slippery and don’t allow for a good grip. There are many handguards available that you can use instead, including the affordable TAPCO handguard.
AK-47 rifle is simple and reliable, but has several limitations that can be fixed with upgrades.
I’ve had a post about AK-47 tactical upgrades and accessories some time ago.
Here is one more small upgrade which is very handy and useful. Tapco Tactical Vertical Short Grip – is small and inexpensive grip which fits standard Picatinny rails. It has container which holds 1 CR123A battery.
Tapco short grip is very easy to install, takes less than a minute. It is well built, quality made product, recommended.
AKM (AK-47 Modification) Upgrades and Accessories
A lot of readers asked me to continue posting information about my AKM (AK-47 Modification).
Today, I want to tell you about several new upgrades of my AK.
UTG Deluxe Tri-Rail Barrel Mount
First upgrade is required to install all other accessories on you AK-47, it is UTG Deluxe Tri-Rail Barrel Mount.
I have rails on my TAPCO Handguard, but they are too close and don’t allow me to stretch my hand for modern style grip. I decided to install additional rails after several competitions when disadvantages of close location of rails and forward grip became obvious.
This barrel mount is made of aluminum with black finish. It is quality product which stays in place reliably.
You have three rails which you can use to attach different accessories, I have flashlight and Magpul AFG2 forward grip.
This AK-47 accessory is simple but very useful.
Magpul Angled Forward Grip 2 (AFG2)
The Magpul AFG2 is a smaller version of the Magpul AFG, it is very comfortable and well made AK-47 upgrade.
I have small hands, that is why I have chosen smaller forward grip, you need to choose the one that fits you.
Magpul Angled Forward Grip is very controversial tactical accessory. You either love it or hate it. I love it and think that it is very interesting upgrade but I know some shooters that simly hate it and think that it is waste of money.
It is difficult to recommend Magpul AFG because you need to test it yourself.
FAB Flashlight Picatiny Rail Adaptor
FAB Flashlight Picatiny Rail Adaptor attaches to any rail (UTG Deluxe Tri-Rail Barrel Mount im my case) and holds flashlight. There are several variants of this adaptor available: 3/4″, 1″, and 1.125″ diameter sizes.
FAB Flashlight Picatiny Rail Adaptor has quick release mechanism which is actually not very quick. Sometimes it works after several tries, not sure if this is problem of this particular adaptor or the general issue.
Picatiny Rail Adaptor holds flashlight reliably and I really like its shape and design.
FAB Flashlight Picatiny Rail Adaptor with Streamlight Polytac flashlight:
And now all three AK-47 upgrades together:
I think that’s all upgrades I have on my AK. Do you have an AK-47? What upgrades do you have on it?
