The whole concept behind how a firearm operates can be a little confusing. Gigantic visual aids have been a staple of basic firearms training in the military since at least the Second World War. These days, thanks to computer graphics and 3D modeling we can see the whole process without ever leaving the comfort of our couch. Someone recently posted this video on Reddit and I figured y’all might enjoy it as much as I did.

  1. Doesn’t take much to turn an AK into a full auto machine gun. Not practical for the 7.62×39, but the 5.45 and it’s low recoil… maybe.

  2. The firing pin does NOT puncture the “bullet primer”..
    I quit watching after that fail.

    • The video does not show the firing pin puncture the primer, and the spent case shows a dimple in the primer – not a hole.

      Happy Motoring, Mark

        • FYI
          This video was posted on Reddit by the animators/creators roommate. I believe it was for a animation project for college class. Chill out Francis.

    • It’s just poor English, probalby an automated translation. Cut em a little slack maybe. I see daily examples of poor English here on TTAG–you gonna stop reading this site?

    • “Is it legal to watch in CA?”

      Yes, since it qualifies as pornography out there…

      *Snicker* 😉

  3. Nice graphics.

    But I still hate sheet metal. I prefer recycled Schlitz cans and melted Pringles lids.

  4. Where ya been Nick?
    Thank you.

    I wanna see a video of the overhead hammer and firing goup functioning in a Colt Scamp, in F/A mode.

  5. That was a good video. Thumbs up.. all that does is make me wish I would have forgot about my Hillary Swimsuit Edition® calenders and saved my guns instead, when the boat sank
