The AK-47 Rifle is a 7.62 mm assault rifle developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. The rifle comes in two versions: the fixed stock AK-47 and the AKS-47 variant.

 

The AK-47 Rifle was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces in 1949. The AK-47 Rifle was also used as a basis for the development of countless many other types of individual and crew-served firearms.

Reflecting Soviet infantry doctrine of its time, the rifle is meant to be part of massed infantry fire, not long range engagements. The average service life of an AK-47 Rifle is 20 to 40 years depending on the conditions to which it has been exposed.
