Why Russian Army switched to the AK74 Primary Rifle

Russian Army

Today’s episode is all about the Russian Army’s often overlooked but never disrespected AK74 primary rifle. Sure, it doesn’t get the same press as the AK47 because the middle child always gets overlooked. I should know. When Russian soldiers stormed Crimea in 2014 everyone in the media said they were carrying AK47s which I’m sure probably triggered a lot of you out there because those were actually the much underappreciated AK74! Way to go media get it together out there. But make no mistake the rifle definitely continued the mythic-like status and tradition of its predecessor.
