Among the great pistols you can buy these days are AK-47 pistols. One thing we lose sight of sometimes as gun owners is the simple fact that shooting is a ton of fun! Nothing beats a good range session where you complete your goals to hone your skill set and blast away with a mag dump or two! Here are the top five reasons you should own at least one AK 47 gun.

AK-47 Pistols | A Gun for the Ages

Wikipedia states – “Even after almost seven decades, the model and its variants remain the most popular and widely used assault rifles in the world because of their substantial reliability under harsh conditions, low production costs compared to contemporary Western weapons, availability in virtually every geographic region and ease of use.”


1. Reliability

The main reason most armies choose the AK is they work. Sand, water, mud, abuse, these weapons are known to take a licking and keep on shooting. I’ve seen enough YouTube videos on the subject and have some personal experience over the past two years running surplus and brand new ammo to know that they will operate as advertised.

2. Power

😫 First time shooting, not that bad ! #ak47pistol #ak47 #moscow #shakinghands

The 7.62 x 39 cartridge is a powerful rifle round. In a pistol with a shorter barrel, it will become less accurate over longer distances, but the punch from the round remains one of the more powerful you can carry.

3. Size

While this is by no means something you will carry on your hip, the size of the AK pistols makes it ideal as a truck gun or backpack option.  Most measure under 24 inches, as we have even seen them in violin cases!

4. Upgrades

The AK platform has many options from a variety of AK-47 manufacturers these days. For you non-purists, you will see everything from rail and grip upgrades to adding an arm brace and optics. Bottom line is, the AK pistols are easy to modify and upgrade to your liking.

5. FUN

As we wrap up the list, we are back to what prompted this post to begin with – the fun factor. I recently joined a neighbor at the range and brought 2 AK-47 pistols, the new American-made micro Draco AK-47 pistol and the RAS-47 AK Pistol with Magpul furniture, both from Century Arms. It’s about the blast, the power, and the smiles. This is why you should own one!

Gun owners are always looking for that ideal carry pistol. AK-47 firearms have had the same classic look for decades with seemingly no plans of reinventing their style. However, if your priority is a gun that is durable, powerful, and reliable, gun fans are very well aware of what the AK-47 brand brings to the table. These guns are without a doubt top of the line!

I mean, I know it was my option to learn, but I actually thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix if you happen to werent too busy searching for attention.
