The AK-47 was invented by Mikhail Kalashnikov of the Soviet Union in 1947 (the name AK-47 stands for Automatic Kalashnikov 1947). The AK-47 is the most mass produced assault rifle in history with over 75 million produced to-date. More AK-47s have been produced than all other assault rifles combined. The rifle was designed with two different types of stocks: one version has a fixed wood stock and the other has a foldable metal stock. The AK-47 is a versatile weapon that is still in use world-wide.
