    I tried to do a search, but couldn't find it, I know there's a pic on the web of the first AK design and doesn't look like what we see now.
    So my .02 is Kalashnikov came up with the design but people with more skill had their hands in it to improve it and make it simpler to manufacture.


    But why is this coming up now, why not while he was still alive? To me it's just more internet bull shit. Like starting a web site stating there's proof of where Jimmy Hoffa is.

    Hoffa is buried in my back yard, and the AK was designed by 4thIDvet. Everyone knows that. LOL.

At the time, the Garand was the auto rifle to beat, why not adapt it to your needs? Of course the general layout/profile resembled the German STg43/44, most of the "assault rifles" that came after do too.
    Read the Russkies admitted they got the design from the M1 by Garand.

    O.K. what is said here stays here. Jimmy Hoffa is at my house. He builds AKs for our gun show business. Anybody got a problem with that, Jimmy got some boys stop by to talk with you.
    He is getting old don't want no problems or heat comin around. He don't like the heat, no not the Florida heat Police heat. He is in his room watching the Godfather part 1 2 3 4 6 and 7. He don't like 5 where the old man took a heart attack, no he can't watch that.
    Kalashnikova took a stroke and is in a nursing home a few miles from here. No he is not morta, he is just well a little slow these days.
