How to buy an AK-47 has received positive press from a variety of industry experts. If you want advice on how to buy a Kalashnikov, consider the comments below:
“…the coverage of information within each section of the book is so thorough that reading the book cover to cover is highly redundant; the book has been written so that the reader can zoom in on exactly the information they need and receive everything the book has to say about the subject, even if that information is repeated elsewhere in the book.”
“Easily the best book we’ve read on the subject”
“I’ve read several dedicated buyers guides for firearms. They almost always manage to disappoint. The topics often read like the manufacturers slick-glossy advertising from which they were derived. In the other extreme, they are overly simplistic and fail to address the real strengths and weaknesses of a given platform. Robert Kay managed to avoid both of these foibles, creating a manual that is quite a lot more than a simple buyer’s guide. He made a book that took the mystery out the AK-series and did it in a format that was both approachable for the layman and informative for more experienced users.”
“Kay’s 30 years of writing experience brings the material to a polish, truly a book worth reading whether the reader is in the market for or already an AK owner… I found How to Buy an AK-47 compelling to read and enlightening, and I know you, the reader, will too.”
