The Kalashnikov has a barrel length of 16.5 inches, and an overall length of 34.5 inches. It weighs the same as the original Kalashnikov and comes in a wood stock model (blued steel and green forest birch from Italy) and the black stock model with a polymer stock.

The Kalashinkov’s namesake, Michail Timofejewitsh Kalashnikov, was injured during WWII, and later became the leading head engineer of the UDSSR, where he created the Kalashnikov Assault Rifle AK in 1947. The "Kalashnikov AK 47" went on to become the most produced carbine worldwide with around 100 billion total produced pieces.

The German Sport Guns novelty line of GSGs include the GSG-5 carbine, the GSG-5 pistol, the GSG-5PK pistol, and the GSG-5SD carbine. GSG claims to be the only licensee worldwide of Kalashnikov’s creation for use as a real firearm.
