The AK-47 is a weapon in the Assault Rifles class featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The design of the AK-47 in GTA San Andreas is based on a real life Norinco Type 56.

This weapon also appears in Grand Theft Auto VI, Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto III.

AK-47 Description:

The AK 47 is an extremely popular Assault Rifle because of its cheap design and incredible reliability. A strong fire rate, good accuracy and great range make for a very powerful weapon.

This weapon has three Skill Levels you can progress through: Poor, Gangster and Hitman. Reaching the Hitman level allows you to fire while moving and improves lock-on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed when using the weapon.

How to get the AK-47 in GTA San Andreas:

The AK-47 can be purchased from Ammu-Nation for a price of $3,500 (or 20% higher in Las Venturas).

It becomes available after completing the mission Lure in Story Mode.

The AK-47 can be found and picked up around the San Andreas map (see the spawn locations in the "Appearances" section below).

The AK-47 also Spawns at Johnson House after completing 100 Gang Tags.
