How to Assemble an AK-47

Learn how to assemble an AK-47 from Police Officer Keith Charley in this Howcast gun video.


Today we're going to talk about how to assemble the AK-47 Assault Rifle.

The first thing you do to put this gun back together is you're going to take your bolt, you put the firing pin back in and then you're going to line it up so the curve is on the top like so.

From there you're going to insert the piston into the top hole of the gun and work the bolt forward. And at the very back, this needs to slide into place and snap down. You've got to be careful not to let this spin on you because if it spins, it will not seed correctly. Once in place you slide it all the way forward into the gun.

From here you have to put the spring back in. So the spring, don't worry about it looking bent. It's supposed to be like that. It slides back in all the way. And you push it forward and there's a little groove on here that slides right in here.

Once you have that together, you slide the top on and snap it into place.

Once that's done, you put your magazine back in and the gun is assembled.

And that's how to assemble the AK-47 Assault Rifle.
