    Mikhail Kalashnikov Helps Celebrate The 60th Anniversary Of The AK-47
    MOSCOW, RUSSIA - JULY 6: 87-year-old Russian weapon designer Mikhail Kalashnikov, inventor of the world famous AK-47 assault rifle, attends a ceremony to celebrate the rifle's 60th anniversary on July 6, 2007 in Moscow, Russia. President Putin hailed the AK-47 automatic rifle yesterday as a symbol of Russia's "creative genius" as well as calling for a battle against makers of counterfeit AK-47s, which deprives Russia of an estimated two billion dollars (1.47 billion euros) each year.

    Didn't they give the tooling to their satellite countries?

    I believe so but the licenses for production ran out and the tooling was never returned IIRC.

    they gave that tooling as the SOVIET UNION... they are no more, therefore agreements are no more. russian needs to shut the FUCK up about this bullshit. fucking commies. and i love the ak, but mikhail is still a worthless commie who designed a great gun.
