Why you guys call it AK pistol? AK stand for Automat Kalashnikova (mashine gun Kalashnikov).
In USSR time everybody who went to university is taking miltary education and will not be graduated from university untill military education and field training completed and graduated with rank. Former rank major lieutenant, military speciality maintenance and repair of firearms, including AKs, Makarov,TT, RPGs etc. I would never got through, if ones I will call AK pistol
