    AK-47s to be made in America; sanctions donít apply to U.S.-made Kalashnikovs

    ďWe are not permitted to pick up the phone and to talk to [Kalashnikov Concern],Ē Mr. McCrossin told CNN Tuesday. ďIn the second quarter of this year we are going to start manufacturing here in the U.S. What Iím manufacturing are our own AK-47s and shotguns under the Kalashnikov brand,Ē he added.

    Presumably they will be manufacturing the WASR (Wassenaar Arrangement Semi-automatic Rifle) variants, not the full select fire AK that has been so popular with military establisments throughout the world.

    Folks are free to build their own AK too ... not as easy as a AR but not beyond the skills of most.

    And then one can make a AK pistol, rifle, etc...have fun !

    I was of the impression the mechanical linkage of the K was easier, more reliable, and more forgiving than any gas-tube affair, particularly after long, punishing use in the field. In fact, isn't that one of the greatest draws to this weapon?

    I assume he means building the part that would require government permission to get. Much easy for the lower receiver of an AR.

    Hmm, if its MADE IN THE USA, then, I MIGHT, just might have to pick one up.

    However, I am still working on my handgun collection of S&Ws first.

    And still it'd probably rank lower than an AR-15, a Rifleman's rifle/flip cock special/Winchester 1892 modified, a M-14, a M-1 Garand...

    but it'd still rank higher than a Ruger Mini-14.
