I understood the kalishnakov was made with deliberate “Sloppiness “ compared to the tight tolerances of precision rifles. Thus it would work in the dirty and dusty reality of the battlefield. This is why it is so reliable.
Have you read all the other posts here?Exactly! One only need look at the MP44 or StG44 to see where the AK47 came from. I had heard somewhere years ago that Schmeisser sat next to Kalashnikov in a weapons factory. If that’s true, take it from there. The Russians had some great weapons, but compared to Germany’s? Personally, I think the German designs were amazing. Would love to have an MG34 or MG42. Not gonna happen though. 😊
