Why you need to know how to perform AK emergency reload? Because one day it may save your life. Often I hear critics saying, that if you will get shot, then you have bigger problems than worrying about reloading your AK. In my opinion this is very ignorant statement, because emergency reloads are not used only when you got shot. Here is real life example, few years ago one of my friends from the Spetsnaz team, got badly injured from IED blast. He had suffered broken bones in his hand and arm, yet he picked his rifle from the ground and went back to fighting, improvising and operating weapon with one hand only. Injury not always means a bullet in your body. Anyhow, below I’m posting video guides to four different emergency reloads. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. Ideally, you should get familiar with all of them and use whatever works in given situation.

Method #1 – This method isn’t perfect, because you must place your rifle between your legs with barrel facing backward – so muzzle awareness is a “must” here.
Method #2 – This is most popular method, used by Russian operators, but be aware of muzzle obstruction.
Method #3 – This time I’m presenting method for AK emergency reload in prone.
Method #4 – Another popular between Russian operators method, but it requires you to have access to solid structure, so you can press your AK rifle muzzle against it.
