Hell, It's about time!
Cleaned my Автомат Калашникова образца 1947 года :D

I think only a handful of people know what that is. My hands smell like gun oil now :-/

Carry on...

The AK-47 is a selective fire, gas operated 7.62mm assault rifle developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Six decades later, the AK-47 and its variants and derivatives remain in service throughout the world. It has been manufactured in many countries and has seen service with regular armed forces as well as irregular, revolutionary and terrorist organizations worldwide.
Design work on the AK began in 1944. In 1946 the rifle was presented for official military trials, and a year later the fixed stock version was introduced into service with select units of the Red Army (the folding stock model was developed later). The AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces in 1949. An early development of the design was the AKS-47 (S—Skladnoy priklad), which differed in being equipped with an underfolding metal shoulder stock.
The AK-47 was one of the first true assault rifles and, due to its durability, low production cost and ease of use, the weapon and its numerous variants remain the most widely used assault rifles in the world — so much so that more AK-type rifles have been produced than all other assault rifles combined.
Pfff.. only people in third world countries use kalashnikovs, like them Africans. :loser:

Oh yeah, and commies... :eyebrow:

Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!

It's possible, but I think the upsides make up for the downsides. Especially more so when you can't afford to buy and maintain hundreds of more expensive modern assault rifles.

Depends on what you need them for. To start a cheap civil war they are decent. I'm thinking pro bought this one for 'historical' value, not for shooting burglars or left wing hippies .. there are better guns for that.
