View Full Version : On the Yugo ak-47 with gas block for single shots ?

My question is this if a yugo ak-47 the one with the gas block is used with the gas block engaged would it cause the 7.62x39 mm bullet to travel faster since its not useing the gas piston to chamber another round ? 2,390 fps is rated... but has any one honestly tested this theory.. i was thinking an compareing the yugo ak-47 single shot idea to a bolt action theory ....

I know on a k98 german mauser bolt action single shot 7.92x57mm the muzzle vel is 2,750 fps from real german ww2 ammo 196 grain.
