Select-fire assault rifle designed by a Russian guy named Kalashnikov. Semiautomatic-only versions are legal to own in most American states. Ruggedness and reliability are excellent. AKs basically work the way they're supposed to every time and are nearly indestructible, but the accuracy is nothing to write home about. (Cf. AR-15, FAL)
I accidentally ran over my AK with my truck and it still worked!

A very powerful and reliable old assault rifle. The AK series looks similar to the Nazi Shturmgewher, but the guns are completely diferent inside. The weapon uses a selector leverl, with top osition is off, middle if fully automatic, and the bottom is semiautomatic. It uses a 30 round detachable banana clip.
The AKM is a modernized version of the AK-47 with and improved receiver and better BUIS.

"Of all the weapons in the vast soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It'll shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, even a child can use it; and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars. "
