Good Video on Field Maintenance of the AK

The video below is on field maintenance the AK. Some of you are old-hands at this, but there are enough new comers to the AK world so the video will be useful.

There are several videos on the site but the one for field stripping the AK is in the lower left of the screen.

There is also one on the Krink (grip and stance) and one on the cycle of operation of a Glock.

That's good video, I suppose there are advantages to properly maintaining an AK. That being said, it really doesn't need to be treated like it's an AR/M4 in order to perform, that's part of the point of acquiring one.

Good video.

If I may offer a trick I use for inserting the bolt carrier....some folks have trouble overcoming the trigger spring as they push the bolt carrier back down into the receiver. There is an easier way to do this.
1. Get your bolt and bolt carrier ready to insert into the gun. Set them aside.
2. Reach inside the gun and hold the hammer
3. Pull the trigger and hold it back
4. Push the hammer down so it's now being retained by the sear, not the trigger
5. Slide the bolt and carrier into the receiver
6. Release the trigger, so the hammer is once again being held by the trigger hook

The force you're trying to overcome as you align and push the carrier down into the receiver is the hammer spring. The two components that hold the hammer back are the trigger hook and the sear hook. The reason this method works is because the sear hook is lower and holds the hammer lower in the receiver. On some AKs, this method works so well the carrier will fall into forward position with almost zero effort. Try it.

Two screws actually. One you can plainly see right behind the receiver cover. The other one is hidden under the recoil spring retainer - you'll see it when you push the retainer out of its slot to remove the recoil spring. Sometimes those buttstocks are very hard to remove even after you take off the screws, but you can coax them out by putting a wood dowel against them inside the receiver and hitting the dowel with a hammer or mallet.

The grip will come off when you remove the screw on the bottom of the grip. Be careful, there's a T-shaped nut inside the receiver that the grip screw screws into. I have never removed it on my SGL, but they're normally not secured to the receiver on AKMs. Be sure to put the nut back in the same way when you screw on the new grip.
