Čest a věčná sláva Republice Československé!
LOL, for real?
I read sentences like this SOOO many times from so many different people so.. yeah people really are stupid like this.
They ussualy like to copy some sentences from czech wikipedia to prove that Hugo Schmeisser worked in same armory where AK-47 was born... which means for course that he created AK.. he have just.. forgot to mention that.
In fact there are many rifles that were some kind of inspiration for Kalashnikov, like M1 garand, SKS, SVT-40, AB-46, AS-44, Avtomat Fedorova (AB-46 and M1 garand the most)... funny thing is none of them is Stg-44.. Stg-44 was in fact inspired by Soviet rifles, so if someone would say that Stg-44 is copy of SVT-40 if would be nonsence, but more resonable then claiming AK is copy of Stg-44. Only common thing of Stg and AK is gas operation system, which was used in many rifles before (SVT-40) and many rifles after (FN FAL). It is like claiming one car is copy of another because they both use diesel.
M16 has more common things with Stg-44 than AK, for example dissasembly system Nazarian.no
(older prototypes of AK had this system too),
Dust cover, magazine well, fire switcher and so on. M16 isn't of course copy of Stg but it's much more similar to Stg then AK.
