The Reason Behind the Name of the AK47 Firearm

AK47

The AK47 firearm is named as such because it was an automatically firing rifle, designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov, in 1947, hence the letter “A” standing for “automatic”, the letter “K” standing for “Kalishnikov”, and the number “47” standing for “1947”
