Moscow Shooting Experience: Shoot an AK-47 at the Central Shooting Club

Try your hand at shooting an AK-47

After hotel pick-up by your private guide, head to the Metro Station to catch the train to Central Shooting Club of the Russian Army Training Society in Moscow for safety training and instruction on how to fire your Kalashnikov, or AK-47 – one of the first assault rifles to be manufactured worldwide.

Learn about the history of this notorious gun, designed at the end of World War II in the Russian town of Izhevsk and used by the Soviet Army. Today, it remains the most popular of small arms in use, due to its durability and ease.

Once you've selected your weaponry, put on your protective gear, load the ammunition and prepare to take aim at your target. Your instructor is available to answer any questions and to ensure your safety at all times. If you’d like you can shoot 20 more bullets at additional cost. Afterwards, take your target home!

Great tour. Above all - great guide - Victoria. She has a lot of knowledge, is very easy-going and friendly person. She speaks very good English. Was with us almost the whole day - it happened she was our guide during Kremlin tour and also on Moscow Shooting Experience - both tours we took on the same day.
The shooting also tremendous, the only failure - we were not allowed to take photos on the shooting facility. Apart from this - very cool experience. I recommend it to everybody!

I absolutely recommend this tour. Our guide was really cool. She picked us up on time and managed everything perfectly. It´s a little bit expensive, but it is worth it.

This was a wonderful experience. We had so much fun and our guide was great. We were lucky because there were few people in the shooting club so we enjoyed even more. It was exciting to shoot with an AK-47 and the shooting distance is challenging. Recommended.

It was great!!! Our guide tell us all about Kalashnikov history and he was very nice and friendly. Once in the shooting club, the instructor explained how to use the AK-47 and we had 20 shoots with that. I had a lot of fun and I recommend this tour.

Eugene was FANTASTIC as a guide. He picked us up from our hotel, and took us to the shooting range for this unique experience. We had a great time. The only problem is that it took a little longer than expected due to the wait at the shooting range. It all depends on how many people are waiting before you, so budget an extra hour for this excursion. Thanks Eugene!

This tour was great and we really enjoyed it. The only downfall was it took nearly 45 minutes of walking and catching subways to get there.

I give the shooting experience 2 stars for the following:

Firtst there was a problem with the booking whereby the event had to be reschedule.
So I had to do the shooting on the day we left Moscow, what was a bit inconvenient..
However the people of Moscow free tour did all there best to solve this problem.

Second I was very dissapointed that it was not possible to thake photo s at the shooting range, although this is mentioned in the description of the activity.
This makes it a bit expensive, because a good photo is surely what you need to brag with it at home!
Maybe its would be an idee to have a replica ak47 just for photo..

Pluspoint for the girl of Moscow free tour who guide us to the range, and the guy who assist the shooting itself. They where very friendly, enjoyable and helpful.
