Yessir, there is NOTHING BETTER, than going full-auto with an AK47 (or any assault rifle), especially if you have a 100 round drum magazine to do it with. With a rate of fire of 600 rounds per minute and being in production for 70 years, the model and its variants remain the most popular and widely used assault rifles in the world and all because of their substantial reliability under harsh conditions.
Also, low production costs compared to contemporary Western weapons, availability in virtually every geographic region and ease of use. The AK-47 has been manufactured in many countries and has seen service with armed forces as well as irregular forces worldwide, and was the basis for developing many other types of individual and crew-served firearms.

In 1974, the Soviets began replacing their AK-47 and AKM rifles with a newer design, the AK-74, which uses 5.45×39mm ammunition. This new rifle and cartridge had only started to be manufactured in Eastern European nations when the Soviet Union collapsed, drastically slowing production of the AK-74 and other weapons of the former Soviet bloc.
