It is that time of month when we talk all things AK-47 on the Talking Lead AK Korner presented by Pioneer Arms Corp. Part 6 is all about training with your AK-47. Joining Lefty this episode is Brian Keeney of OCCAM Defense. Brian brings with him two of the industry's most revered AK-47 experts Travis Haley of Haley Strategic Partners and Jim Fuller of Rifle Dynamics to talk philosophies of training. After we get some great training tips from Travis, Jim and Brian, Lefty hits the guys with your "Lead Head" submitted questions.
Next Brian talks about OCCAM Defense's new ODS-1775 AKM pattern rifle and his journey that ultimately led him to building this beast of a rifle that is capable of shooting 1 MOA and better at ranges not typical for an AK-47.

Rifle Dynamics (RD): Over a decade ago Jim Fuller fell in love with the AK. It was simple, reliable, and the most produced rifle in the world.

Jim's mission is to help popularize the AK platform in the United States by taking away the "bad guy" gun stigma it has carried over the decades in America . Jim builds AK's that handle with ease, are supremely reliable, incredibly accurate, beautifully crafted, and always deliver.
