    Proof that even AKs jam.

    Insurgent Firefight video

    Watch the guy that runs up a couple of seconds into the video with the brown shirt/jacket on. His AK jams and he struggles with it. Looks like he almost gets shot by one of his own buddies.

    Does anybody else think the day ended badly for these guys???

    Would have been great if those jerks shot themselves.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I guess I didn't really want to know that, but oh-well! Bad things happen when you least expect them I reckon.

    No firearm is immune to failure. I think the guy had a weak mag spring from personal experience. And I can also assure you the idiot in the video has quite a hearing problem on his left ear

    At the range, I see far more AK's jamming or having other errors far more than anything else there.

    I don't believe the AK's reliability reputation is all that it's made out to be. I've owned two and neither were the impervious weapon we hear so much about.

    Without looking at the vid because it would probably take a hour on my slow dail up, I'm asking is a AK jamming the norm or abnorm. In my experience its the abnorm and thats why there is a vid of this happening. Like I said I didn't get a chance to look at the vid so there may be more to this.

    It is not uncommon. Certainly not as uncommon as some believe. Whether or not that makes it the norm, I do not know.

    Its an Ansar Al-Sunnah propoganda video and I think it is safe to assume they were videotaping their valiant fight against the infidel rather than the oddity of an AK malfunction.

    Lol, at least he cleared it decently fast I guess.

    Their marksmanship skills are hilarious. Forgot about how bad it was over there. Imo, probably like Pallywood, there was no one down the street they were shooting. Just pretending to be attacking the dirty Americans.

    AK jams are very few and far between AK haters notwithstanding. I had my WASR for 2.5 years, cleaned it when I bought it and 2 weeks ago, put some 2000+ rounds through it and I had exactly 3 jams and 2 of those were related to the bad mag spring.
