    According to the article the AK 47 is not a by-product of the StG 44 as I always believed.... I am happy to have bene corrected and give Kalashnikov his due!

    I still have a doubts abt. Kalashnikov authority. According to his memories he didn't has a high education. All knowledge of him was a book abt. SMG weapons. When he read this book he created AK-47. Kalashnikov was a "komsorg" not a constructor. He was a komsomol leader on the factory (somekind "hitlerugend organization"). Komsomol(Komunistichesky soyuz molodezhi - All-Union Leninist Young Communist League) it is a young reserve of the Communist party.

    I agree with you I am not entirely convinced that Kalashnikov is the only or the real inventor but it's clear from the research that the Soviets came up with their ARs by themselves, independently, without copying the Germans but leading their own efforts.
