Named after the elite force in the Russian military, this gun is an engineered weapon specifically for CQB action with its compact length to move through urban spaces unhindered.
While a short gun, it does not lack heft as much of its weight is contributed to the amount of metal parts in its construction which includes the underfolding stock, rear sling mount, receiver cover, cover retainer button, trigger, trigger guard, magazine release, magazine, bolt and charging handle, mock gas piston, fire selector lever, rear sight, gas tube release lever, upper handguard retainers, front sight block, and its threaded outer barrel.
Housed within is a polymer body and a Version 3 full metal gearbox with high durability gears. The Version 3 gearboxes are the standard for AEG AK's and just like all its brethren it is open to a variety of upgrade parts for players to fine tune this platform to shoot harder, faster, farther. A great performer in a small package with options for upgrades and Marui compatible accessories. Included is a unique short type 250 round high-capacity metal magazine.
The AK-47 is a selective-fire, gas-operated 7.62x39mm assault rifle, first developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is officially known as Avtomat Kalashnikova but also known as Kalashnikov, AK, or in Russian slang, Kalash.
Design work on the AK-47 began in the last year of World War II (1945). After the war in 1946, the AK-46 was presented for official military trials. In 1948 the fixed-stock version was introduced into active service with selected units of the Soviet Army.
An early development of the design was the AKS (S—Skladnoy or "folding"), which was equipped with an underfolding metal shoulder stock. In 1949, the AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces and used by the majority of the member states of the Warsaw Pact.
The original AK-47 was one of the first assault rifles, after the German StG 44. Kalashnikov surely had examined samlpes of the MP44, but the AK47 is by no means a copy of it.
Even after six decades the model and its variants remain the most widely used and popular assault rifles in the world because of their durability, low production cost, availability, and ease of use.
It has been manufactured in many countries and has seen service with armed forces as well as irregular forces worldwide. The AK-47 was the basis for developing many other types of individual and crew-served firearms. More AK-type rifles have been produced than all other assault rifles combined.
