When lubing the AK (AK-47/74) keep it simple. There are 5 points of lubrication on the AK (AK-47/74). Below are pictures demonstrating the lubrication points. On points 1-5 on the bolt and bolt carrier a drop of lube or a dap of grease, and the other two areas on the bolt and bolt carrier shown just a nice light coat. That is really all their is too it. I also throw a light coat on the piston for easy clean up after use.
