The Kalashnikov family is a series of firearms that are based on the original design of Mikhail Kalashnikov. Mikhail Kalashnikov was a former Soviet tank commander who became injured during a battle. In the hospital, he sketched a design of an automatic weapon, which would be later known as the AK-47, the world's most popular small arm. Out of an estimated 500 million firearms in the world, 1 in 5, is an AK.
