“AK’s are sort of like a cheeseburger. Nevertheless you want it, you can have it.” These are Jared LaMarche’s thoughts on the Kalashnikov, or AK, rifle. LaMarche is a gunsmith at Windsor Arms in Windsor, Vermont. They bring a bunch of their AKs and other guns to the Green Mountain Boys Machine Gun Shoot in Eden, Vermont. The occasion requires spot mid-July of each year.

LaMarche is a major fan of AKs. “A lot of folks feel that the AK is not a enjoyable, or a terrific gun. I feel it is amazing,” he told Guns.com at final year’s shoot. He went on to clarify that the AK platform was produced for a conscript army. “Which is when you take a potato farmer, you take him out of the field and you give him a rifle, and now he’s a soldier.”

LaMarche demonstrated a handful of complete auto AKs, ARs, a VEPR-12 complete auto shotgun along with a handful of other fascinating and uncommon guns at the Vermont shoot. He believes that after you shoot a superior high quality AK, with superior high quality ammo, you also will be a major believer in the AK platform.

What do you feel? Do you favor AK or AR?

Right here are a handful of AKs that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing more than the final handful of years.
