How the AN-94 works

Postby Cybrludite » Sat Jun 03, 2017 4:11 pm

Forgotten Weapons takes a look at the Russian AN-94 rifle. I think it can best be described as the bastard child of Thomas A. Swift and Rube Goldberg and it's no wonder why they haven't dirched the AK-74M for it.

Yes, comrade. We will put most of a rifle action inside of another action so we can shoot two bullets before it recoils.

One of those 'we heard you like guns, so we put a gun inside your gun' memes seems appropriate here.

Love the wheel and cable drive. No, no, that's not going to be fussy. Seems like the whole thing might be a little ammo sensitive.

A solution in search of a problem.

Pretty much. Pick little bullets, figure out how to use more of them at once.
