The AK-47 (Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947) is a gas-operated
assault rifle designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov,
produced by Russian manufacturer IZH and used in many
Eastern bloc nations during the Cold War. It was
adopted and standardized in 1947[2]. Compared with the
auto-loading rifles used in World War II, the AK-47
was generally lighter, more compact, with a shorter
range, a smaller 7.62 39 mm cartridge, and was
capable of selective fire. It was one of the first
true assault rifles and remains the most widely used.
The AK-47 and its numerous variants and descendants
have been produced in greater numbers than any other
assault rifle and are in production to this day.
