When it comes to iconic firearms, few can rival the worldwide recognition of the AK-47 assault rifle. Originally developed by the old Soviet Union in the waning years of the Second World War, the AK-47’s history would go on to become one of the most widespread guns used throughout the world. Given its reliability and relatively low cost, the AK-47’s popularity at our Las Vegas gun range should come as no surprise.
Firearms Spotlight: AK-47 Assault Rifle
We feel that Samuel L. Jackson said it best in Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 feature, Jackie Brown when he exclaimed, “AK-47, the very best there is.” This is hardly false-placed excitement, as the AK-47 has proved over the last 70 years that it deserves every bit of those sentiments. Given its legendary reputation, there was absolutely, positively no way we were going to leave this amazing assault rifle out of our indoor Las Vegas gun range.
As we’ve already stated, in addition to its widespread use internationally, the AK-47 is also one of the biggest celebrity firearms in the world. You’ve definitely seen it’s unmistakeable wooden finish in countless films such as The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Rescue Dawn (2007), We Were Soldiers (2002), Operation Condor (1991) and really this list could go on for a while. On top of all that, there isn’t a self-respecting first-person shooter video game around that won’t include the AK-47 or one of its variants.
