I GOT ONE. MOSTA THESE DEFFINITIONS IS ONLY HALFWAY TRUE. where do i start? i have the sar 1 (search and rescue). it shoots very true providing you know the tajectery of your ammo. most yuppies dont and get on the internet complaing. when the ak came into production the sks went out. the ak was designed for urban warfare. it is not a sniper rifle although an 800 meter (875.1 yard) shot is possible. if you buy one i recomend the chineese military 75/100 round drum wind up type. dosent jam. did i mention that the ak dosent ever jam. (unlike the ar15,m16,m4,etc.) you can without tools break it down and put it back together in the field. sand is not a problem. barrel insides dont rust. its a tough weapon. its like "the glock" of assault rifles. Mr. kalaskinov was a genious. he said let the sights be mounted to the barrel and all the other moveable parts be clanking and banging around behind it. the american gunsmiths however say build it tight. thats why the m16 jams- there is no room for a few grains of sand and thus you need a guide assist rod. you can see daylight between the upper and lower recievers of the m16. they built it real tight huh?

Avtomat Kalashnikov 1947

Invented by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Quite possibly the most popular assault rifle in existence, mostly because of mass proliferation.

7.62x39mm Soviet, 30-round clip. Has countless variants. Today it is black-marketted by terrorist cells (mostly because the AK is easy to make).
The AK-47 has been reported to have certain performances that surpass that of the Colt M16 series, and one reason is because the AK doesn't contain as many moving parts (therefore, maintenance is very easy). The AK-47 can also brave any type of harsh condition and environment.

There are ALL kinds of variants to the AK-47:
*AK-74 (5.45x39mm Soviet assault rifle)
*AKS-74u (5.45x39mm Soviet carbine)
*Saiga 12 (12g auto shotgun)
*Dragunov SVD (7.62x39mm Soviet sniper/infantry-backup rifle)
These 4 are just some.

The very best there is.
If you absolutely have to kill every last motherfucker in the room, accept no substitute.

Originally developed and finalized by Mikhail Kalashnikov in the year 1947, the AK47 was meant to be a rifle for tank crews, who could not fit a full sized rifle into their tank. It was so successful that it was adopted by the Russian army, and exported to all of Russia's allies. It's most recognizable feature is its superb reliability, it will function in environments that other weapons would malfunction in. It fires 7.62 x 39mm ammunition(by comparison, an M16 fires 5.56 x 45mm).
This is the AK47 assault rifle. It is the preferred weapon of your enemy, and it makes a very distinct sound when fired at you.

The world's absolute most proliferous assault rifle, with more than 90 million units currently existing. Commonly seen as a terrorist weapon, and for good reason, as it is relatively inexpensive, and very robust, able to brave extreme weather conditions. Chambered for the Russian 7.62 x 39 mm rifle cartridge.
