Background of the Real AK47:
“The AK-47 (shortened from Russian: Автомат Калашникова образца 1947 года, Avtomat Kalashnikova 1947; English: Kalashnikov's machine gun, model of the year 1947) is a gasoperated assault rifle that was used in many Eastern bloc nations during the Cold War.

For the sake of reduced manufacturing costs, this was done by shortening the 7.92 × 57 mm Mauser cartridge case and substituting a lighter bullet to create the 7.92 x 33 mm Kurz.
“The resulting Sturmgewehr 44 (StG44 or MP44) was not the first rifle to use these features; it was preceded by earlier Italian Cei-Rigotti and Russian Fedorov Avtomat designs.
