The AK-47 is a selective-fire, gas-operated 7.62×39mm assault rifle, first developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov.

Design work on the AK-47 began in the last year of World War II (1945). After the war in 1946, the AK-47 was presented for official military trials. In 1949, the AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces.
Me: "The AK-47 is a great weapon, but the M16 is cool also.

a shoulder fired assult rifle that was made into production an 1947. it fired a 7.62mm*39 round. it is gas operated which means the bolt moves back by using the gas exerted by the bullet. it has a muzzle velocity of 2350 fps. it is virtually indestructable and it was designed my avtomat kalashnikov. there is a newer version of the ak which is called the ak 74
the vietnamese used the ak 47. in the 60s the m16 vns were horrible so the us forces would use it and often get caught in frendly fire.

-"What is that?"
-Highway: This is the AK-47 assault rifle, the preferred weapon of your enemy; and it makes a distinctive sound when fired at you, so remember it.

African Credit Card. This is the term initially used by a UN aid worker in Sierra Leone to describe how the indigenous personnel used their particular weapon of choice.
Back when I was with EO in Liberia and Sierra Leone, those LURD and RUF poofters were always coming into Monrovia and Freetown with their African Credit Cards and taking what they pleased. They thought it was leenks guz, man. The UN guys said, "well, the AK47 is just an African Credit Card".

An assault rifle in wide use. Used by different nations. Mass-produced in large amounts. Also a very decent weapon.

When you absolutely, positively gotta kill every motherfucker in the room, accept no substitute.
