Tools: There are a few simple, and relatively low cost tools needed to build, repair and maintain the Kalashnikov rifle. We take a look at each tool an AK builder might choose

Parts: The Kalashnikov is a simple yet efficient machine comprised of relatively few parts. We talk a look at the parts of the AK47, AKM and AK74 as well as the legal, financial, collectable and quality differences between them

Origins: The Kalashnikov is the undisputed most produced firearm on the plant throughout all of time. As a result, the AK47, AKM and AK74 rifles have been made all over the world by official manufacturers, re-manufacturers, satellite companies, home builders, insurgents, freedom fighters, dictators and other sources too numerous to list
