Sterling and Lana fire AK-47's aboard the Argo

The AK-47 is a gas operated, rotating bolt, assault rifle in use by most Warsaw Pact nations. It is one of the most commonly used weapons in Archer.

Weapon Details[]

Firing a 7.62mm round, the weapon can be fired in semi or full auto. It is one of the most popular assault rifles in the world due to its low production cost and extreme durability, it is common among communist nations, revolutionaries, and terrorist groups. Also known as a Kalashnikov (the name of its designer) it has an effective range of 300 meters in full auto and 400 meters in semi mode and uses 10 to 40 round magazines.
