Kalashnikov Family Rifles

Introduction

Kalashnikov rifle is any one of a series of automatic rifles based on the original design of Mikhail Kalashnikov. They are officially known in Russian as "Avtomat Kalashnikova" but are widely known as Kalashnikovs, AKs, or in Russian slang, as a "Kalash". They were originally manufactured in the Soviet Union primarily by Kalashnikov Concern, (formerly known as Izhmash)  These rifles and their variants were quickly outsourced all over the world and quickly began being manufactured in many other countries. The rifles have been used in conflicts all over the world and are well renowned globally. 

CTRGs do not use AK series rifles often, however, it is documented here for general knowledge.
