The AK 47 (also known as Kalashnikov, AK, or in Russian slang, Kalash) is a selective-fire (semi-automatic and automatic), gas-operated 7.62x39mm assault rifle, developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov.

It is officially known in the Soviet documentation as Avtomat Kalashnikova (Russian: Автомат Калашникова).

Design work on the AK-47 began in the last year of World War II (1945). After the war in 1946, the AK-47 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 under folding 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.

Today, 1 in 5 rifles are AK 47 Kalashnikov in all versions.
