Reproduction of a rifle, made of metal and wood, with simulator mechanism for loading and fire, detachable parts and removable magazine.
The AK-47 rifle, acronym of Avtomat Kalashnikova model 1947, was designed in 1942 by Mikhail Kalashnikov, a Russian fighter during the Second World War. The peculiarity of this rifle is its cartridge refill system, which uses the force of the combustion gases produced by the shot to facilitate the placement of a new cartridge in the chamber of the weapon and to expel the hood already used. Furthermore, its curved loader, which gives it greater capacity in a smaller space, is also a hallmark.
Turned into the official USSR rifle between 1947 and 1978, it is currently the most widely used firearm in the world. In 1949 the Red Army adopted it as the main weapon of the infantry, replacing the PPSh-41 submachine gun, even though it was not until 1954 when it entered service on a large scale. He was later chosen by the Eastern Bloc countries in the Warsaw Pact as a weapon of regiment for his armies during the Cold War.
