The AK-47 creator has died.

Yeah...a shame. A lot more science and engineering goes into designing firearms than most people think.

The AK is a nice piece of engineering for it's intended use...cheap, easy to produce, extremely durable, idiot simple to operate and in the right hands very effective <300 meters with a human size target.

That said...for my purposes it's a piece of crap. The action feels sloppy, it's difficult to mount a scope and the ammo sucks.

It's all in the eye of the beholder I suppose. :)
