Like I said, the OLD ones were milled. They didn't become stamped until the AKM. Guess again, indeed. Lol
By the way, his name was Mikhail, not Misha. I think one of his kids was named Misha though IIRC. It don't matter though, I prefer a Simonov over a Kalashnikov anyway.


Craftsman hand tools are drop forged if I'm not mistaken.
