What would you say is the most common nationality of AKs around the world? Its seems the Romys and China made ones are, but that is just a guess.

my bet is the soviet AK are the most plentiful throughout the world............you have to remember the soviets gave, or "loaned" them out to any country to favor that county to side with them, by the train car loads, especially in africa, sub-sahara region, not to mention centeral American countries, and VN......which sided with the soviets after the fall of saigon.

next to the US, my bet is that the soviets gave out on credit, or payment more military hardware, ie. small arms, ammo, tanks, aircraft, missiles then the US ever did..........if you look at any thrid world county's inventory of military equipment.........you'll see there are more MIGs in those country''s air forces, and T-series tanks, then there are countries with US made equipment......AKs were probably just a freebie for buying the big dollar stuff

mobius is probably dead on the money ... Russia has been crankin' 'em out for 50yrs +

It's just a shame that I don't have one or 2 or 3 ......

You know that original type 1 with that old heavy forged receiver and that wonderful drop on the buttstock will always hold a special place in my heart ....

I think I might cry ...

I think we are forgetting about a major player in the arms dealin' business.
North Korea

They make AK's and they sell weapons to anyone who shares in their hatred of America. So I'm sure there are more than a few North Korean AK's on a battlefied somewhere.
