True, it is very durable, but from personal experience, I can tell you that the mud dumping does require a basica cleaning before it would funtion - but in general combat conditions, it is fine.

Reliability. The most reliable rifle in the world, period.

IzhMash and Izhevsk Mechanical (AK maker) now makes even better versions of the AK, namely the 10x versions (AK-101, 2, 3 etc), which are as reliable as the good ole AK-47, but much more accurate, new caliber, and other things.

Though of course the 47 version is the most used rifle in the world. I heard something like 50 million rifles have been sold.
