Kalashnikov and his legacy: AK-47, the world’s most recognizable gun

The name Kalashnikov may not ring a bell with some, but the AK-47 assault rifle is widely known and used. The “A” stands for Automatic, and the “K” stands for the name of its designer, Mikhail Kalashnikov. A World Bank study from 2007 says no less than 75 million AK-47s are in circulation. That’s almost 20% of the entire global stock of firearms.
