    Won't be first model expansion for them. The Ak-74 dropped caliber to take more modern 5.54 x 39 cartridge and their 12 gauge model looks like a winner, neither killed off demand for original 1947 model nor it's bigger, slower less accurate 7.62 x 39mm cartridge.

    Perhaps I misread. I took the article to mean the classic 47 was being restyled to look like the bottom rifle.

    Who knows, article was unclear. I just assumed additional desired sales expansion of another 150,000 units annually to north american markets were for sporting arms. As such I figured they would maintain established military models and keep stamping out the classics to satisfy ongoing demand for reliable spray and pray guns a kid can operate.

    Here's hoping they keep stamping out the 16oz claw hammers of the battlefield.

    When my son turned 16 I took him up to J&G Sales and got him an AK-47 and a 1,000 rounds for his Birthday at the time the AK-47 cost $100. and the Russian steel case 7.62x39 was $99. for a 1,000 rounds.
    and for his 18th Birthday I got him a Bushmaster M-4 so when he was at FT Benning he shot expert and was picked to help other soldiers on the range and was a sniper on his Ranger Team.

    Yeah. I overreacted. I've become sensitive in my wane. I get all wound up when i see them redesigning and improving stuff I've come to like just the way it is.

    The AK47 (1947 7.62mm) was replaced with the AK74 (5.45 mm you guessed it in 1974), followed by AK74 revisions now they are replacing that with the AK12 (AK-200) (5.45 mm and 7.62 mm) the rifle in the article
