Nice comparison with a manky old M16A1 instead of a newer one...

I thought it was funny too! He just taps the forward assist. "SPORTS" is far too complicated for a Russian. Nice old A1 they had there. Wonder who they killed to get it.

Wow! An old M16A1! I haven't seen one of those since my national service days during the Cold War! What was the firer trying to do when he gave two feeble taps on the forward assist? Maybe he got an old round which had the bad powder stuck in the chamber that fouled the weapon. (Said to be a common cause of stoppages in the early days of the Vietnam War). He'll have to break it down to get it out.

As for the new Kalishnikov, I don't see any significant improvement in it. (Seems to have discarded the wooden furniture tho' and it seems to have changed its flash hider) I would like to see one in person to get an eyeball on it.

If the Russkies like the old school rifles, they would like this one which is in the Vietnam War gallery at the National Museum of the Air Force. Yawn.

Actually, thinking about the M16 section of the vid, looks like it performed perfectly - one round in mag, fires, ejects and holds open as Eugene Stoner intended!
