Kalashnikov AK47- Monumental blunder as the Nazi Sturmgewehr is included in memorial

Recommended Posts

In the news today is an item concerning the memorial to the late inventor of the AK-47.

 

Apparently a monumental blunder (pardon the pun) has been carried out by the sculptor as a Nazi StG44 Sturmgewehr was included in memorial. However IMHO the AK-47 was a rip off of the StG44 so that weapon had every right to be on the memorial and should not have been removed!
