    Mikhail Kalashnikov has passed away. He has a very interesting Biography I wonder how many different versions of the AK-47 are out there and how many countries have produced it?

    No disrespect to Mr. Kalashnikov. He did make a reliable weapon that can be used by any illiterate insurgent. But he is a one trick pony that could not carry John Brownings Tool Box.

      Carl - Well out, but I suppose you could put John C. Garand in the same category. R.I.P.

        No idea on the exact numbers but it has to be in the 100's of millions in probably most all of the Countries of the World. Truly a weapon for all seasons.

          Hobob, Russia was the first country to make the AK-47. East Germany, China, Yugoslavia (now Serbia) and Bulgaria followed with their own AK-47. I read where the Chinese AK-47 action on the ChiComs is so smooth and crisp and noticeably better than the others.

            True 99 but just by the shear number of varied designs that are still in use today. It has to be Mr. Browning. For adaptability of a single weapon it has to be Mr. Stoner.
            As far as the AK-47. To paraphrase Stalin Production is it's own Quality.

                There are over 32 countries lisenced to make the ak-47 and its variants, and there are many countries and areas of the world that make them the illegal way. Once he made the AK47 there was no other reason to make another if it ain't broke don't fix it.
