What does it take to actually destroy an AK-47? Perhaps the only weapon that can still fire after being jammed full of twinkies — I have no idea why that’s a thing — it’s close to indestructible. You don’t buy it? Check out this AK that was taken from a poacher in Africa.
“The CEO of Underground Tactical sent me this pic of an AK-47 he pulled off some poachers in Africa. It still worked. Impressive,” notes Instagram user Jon Wayne Taylor, who posted the photo on March 24, 2016, and it was promptly covered online by Guns.com and The Firearms Blog. It’s begun making the rounds again, and it’s not surprising why. I mean shit, look at it:

No dust cover? No problem! Ditto for the trigger guard, which is missing in action, along with the pistol grip and buttstock, which have been replaced with random pieces of wood and are held in there by… whatever.
Yes, the AK-47 is fucking indestructible. Meanwhile, you get a little bit of dust on an M4 and this happens:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. military MQ-9 drone was shot down in Yemen's Dhamar governate, southeast of the Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa, two U.S. officials told Reuters on Wednesday.
A Houthi military spokesman had earlier said that air defenses had brought down a U.S. drone.
The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the drone was shot down late on Tuesday.
