AK-47 Tour


Are you curious to learn more about the only assault riffle in the world that can function in any environment? We offer you to join our AK-47 tour, where our guide will tell you a lot of interesting stories about the most famous weapon in the world.

The AK-47 was created by Mikhail Kalashnikov, a weapon designer in his twenties. As a young recruit to the Red Army, Kalashnikov irritated his company commander with his endless questions about military equipment. He was sent off to an armorers’ course. Then having been severely wounded in battle in 1941, he spent his recovery time designing weapons. It brought him to work with the team of well-known weapon designers, such as Georgiy Shpagin, and Georgiy Degtyarev. This cooperation resulted in the development of a new sub-machinegun.

Kalashnikov was an energetic and original thinker. He adapted what he had learned as an armorer, and worked with the other designers to create a series of the greatest small-arms in the world, including the AK-47. The AK-47 first appeared in 1947 and became standard issue for Soviet troops in 1949.
Today AK-47 continues to be the best assault rifle as it incorporates the best features of American M1 Garand/M1 carbine, Remington Model 8 rifle, and the German Sturmgewehr 44.

Apart from AK-47, you will have a chance to shoot Austrian hand guns, such as Glock 17 or Glock 35. Glock entered Austrian military and police service by 1982 after it was the top performer in reliability and safety tests.

Do you know what the most effective range of this rifle is? Where is the gun produced nowadays? How long does it take to disassemble and reassemble AK-47? 19. Why did the original designer of the Glock pistol fire all prototypes in his basement with his left hand?
Find it out on our tour, and shoot legendary AK-47 riffle and Glock hand guns!
