Forgotten Weapons has quite a heavyweight fight on his hands. How does the MP-44 match up against the AK-47? Ian from Forgotten Weapons has both a German Sturmgewehr MP-44 and a Soviet AK-47. What is the best machine gun anyway between the two?The MP-44 has quite a lower service life than the AK-47. The AK-47, as Ian states, will last forever.

These two weapons have had massive impacts on battlefields of the past and present wars and skirmishes. Ian explains what the pluses and negatives of both weapons in great detail. Good to know!
