The AK-47 is definitely a mean looking rifle. The history of this gun is pretty cool too, like where it came from, who came up with the idea for it, and etc. AK-47 is an abbreviation for “Automatic Kalashnikov rifle of 1947”. This rifle was used by the Soviet Union and other countries in Central and Eastern Europe during the Cold War. It was designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov and introduced in 1947. This high powered rifle compared to other auto-loading units was by far the most compact, sufficient power and range, and it had the capability of selective fire; it was truly a durable and easy to use weapon of its time. It is also a very inexpensive piece of hardware to produce and it is very easy to maintain. Lack of durability is definitely not a factor when it comes to the AK-47, it was designed to withstand a beating that is associated with wars like mud, water, getting slammed around and I think you get the point.

How To Draw An Ak-47

STEP 2.

Using the guideline begin drawing the hardware of your assault riffle starting with the whole receiver of the gun's design. The AK-47 comes milled or stamped, and I think in this case we will draw the milled version which is a solid piece of steel. Draw in the safety lever and color in the hole which is where the shells fly out of when empty. You can also load the receiver too.
