AK47 – Traditional military version
This Russian assault rifle is officially know as Avtomat Kalashnikova, also as Kalashnikov, AK, or in Russian slang, Kalash. It was officially accepted by the Soviet Army and used by the majority of the member states of the Warsaw Pact. Even after six decades the model and its variants remain the most widely used and popular assault rifles in the world.
This is a true legendary weapon, known for its extreme ruggedness, simplicity of operation and maintenance, and unsurpassed reliability even in worst conditions possible. It is used not only as a military weapon, but also as a platform for numerous sporting civilian rifles and shotguns. The AK is an amalgam of previously known features and solutions, combined in the most effective way.
