AK-47: The Grim Reaper - Second Edition

There have been many books published about the Kalashnikov assault rifles, but this publication differs from most previous works. Covered in detailed text and photographs are the many military AK rifle variants from around the world. However, in place of the previously well-documented early evolution history of Russian military weapons published elsewhere, this book includes an in-depth study of the many variations of the civilian semiautomatic-only AK style rifles that have become very popular in the United States since they were first imported in the early 1980s up to the present time.

The Grim Reaper... It would be safe to say that the "AK-47" rifle and its many variants have been indirectly responsible for incalculable military and civilian casualties perhaps more than any military small arm ever made. Indirectly because a firearm is an inanimate object; it cannot make decisions, it is the person who has their finger on the trigger that does that and they are the true Grim Reaper. Ultimately irresponsible and indiscriminate worldwide distribution of the rifle is largely responsible for the sins mistakenly applied to the firearm itself.

The Grim Reaper: AK-47 is by far the most detailed history of the AK-47 and the Kalashnikov variants that have been manufactured all around the world, including commercial versions in the United States. If you are looking for a single reference book on the AK-47 for your library, this is hands down the best choice. This book weighs over 6 pounds!
