F Y I - the AK - 47 is the world's most produced firearm. There is in excess of (get this) 100,000,000.I THINK I got enough zeros. One Hundred MILLION -thats right..ONE HUNDRED MILLION !! Themind can't even imagine that many ! Sadly - MOST of them have been produced without any royalties being paid to the Ruskies.They hold the patent - but nobody honours it.(Try THAT with an American rifle!!)

sorry hoadie, its only 50 - 70 million produced. they dont know a number to the nearest million because they are produced from afganistan to mexico.

 

so i was mistaken it is more of an assault rifle. than that settles the matter, out of all rifles the smelly is the best!

 

although i wouldent say that to a yank who has an M1 garand. i met a bloke last week that has one and says that all other military rifles are sh*t, the smelly god will take care of him i am sure...

I Dunno Dano - There was just a WEEK LONG hoopla by the media over here about the AK -47. They interviewed Kahlishnikov himself- as well as big shots in Russian miltary/arms production. Took a whole week THATS where I get the figure of 100 MILLION from. It's produced in more than 150 countries.
Venezuela just signed a deal to buy a wack of them from Russia.(They threw the U.S. deal out)

Oh - Alot of yanks LIKE & collect the Garand.But I don't know too many that say it's the best.
Ask cookie monster, or Dave.We've all owned 'em..& if I could find my stupid camera - I'd show you WHY they weren't so good !

Note to Cookie Monster & Dave: I'm the proud owner of a nice shiney M-1 thumb as of yesterday!!

Tony;
My mate (Robert Camp) was born in Liverpool (I'm Aug 7th, he's Aug 6th) His dad joind the Brit army just before the war, served through the war, & then a full carreer after.Red Devils - RSM.They lived EVERYWHERE that empire was. Bob Sr & the Mrs hadn't seen each other in over a year (closer to 2, actually)He was in Malta-I believe-& RAF was brining the Mrs & a few other military families to settle in.She told the story of how as they were approaching to land - they could see the paratroops leavin the other end..On they're way to the Suez!
Robert Sr. was presented the B.E.M. by HM Elizabeth, for his work in Jamaica.
Seems as though someone was always givin the world a hot foot in those days!
Geez - you ARE old !

Ahhhhhhhhh maybe old but I'm handsome! You know how we got the name red devils? Germans started calling brit paras that in N Africa " Rote Tuefel!" Then during the muck up at Arnhem they referred the battle area as the Devils Cauldron.

i guess no oby knows how many ak's have been made?

i personally dont like the garand because is semi-automatic. this is me personally, i just dont like semi-automatics. i dont know a whole lot about the M1 so i cant say whats 'really' bad about it. but i am sure the 30-06 cartridge it has, has got a nice kick to it.

Dunno  I served 2 tours of Vietnam & Trust me when I say it was a very over rated experiance! It's something that you tend to put behind you a it all happened too long ago for anyone really to care about now

Theres a new company in California - claims they're makin the "best" ak -47 in the world. Showed it being run onver 2x by a humvee, then fired, submerged-then fired, buried - then fired etc.Their goal is to sell 'em to the U S military.(Lotsa luck ! N. I. H. !!)
