Why is the AK-47 is the ultimate survival rifle? Because it works.

Year of development: 1947
Caliber: 7.62×39
Years of service: 1947 – present
Nations of service: Every communist nation under the sun
Conflicts of service: Just about every major conflict since 1947
Bullet diameter: 308 – 311
Bullet weight: 123 grains
Effective range: 400 meters
Capacity: Standard 30 round magazine

I have to be perfectly honest, the AK-47 is not my primary SHTF survival rifle.

That honor goes to the AR-15 and the FN/FAL.
