The History Behind AK Variants
The AK-47, (short for Avtomat Kalashnikova) is a gas-operated, 7.62×39mm caliber semi-automatic rifle, developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. It is the originating firearm of the Kalashnikov rifle (or "AK") family. Design work on the AK-47 began in 1945. The AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces in 1949 and later adopted by the majority of the member states of the Warsaw Pact. Over the past 70 years, the model and its variants remain the most popular and widely used semi-auto rifles in the world because of their substantial reliability under harsh conditions, low production costs, availability in virtually every geographic region, and ease of use.
The AK-74 is an adaptation of the AK-47, chambered in 5.45x39mm. The design was overseen by Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1974. The lighter rounds used by the AK-74 allow the operator to carry more ammunition, compared to the larger and heavier 7.62 cartridge. The AK-74 has a flatter trajectory and produces less recoil which promote better accuracy. The AK-74 continues to see use around the world in military, law enforcement, and civilian arenas today.
