If you own one of these guns, you need to know how to field strip an AK47, or variants such as this WASR-10, the SAR, and others.
First, remove the magazine
by grasping it in your hand with your fingers wrapped around the front of the magazine. Depress the magazine release lever (just behind the magazine on the front of the trigger guard
) with your thumb, and rotate the magazine forward.
Then rotate the safety/selector lever downward and pull rearward on the bolt
handle to open the action and ensure that the chamber
is empty. Allow the bolt to return to its forward position.
