Semi-protected edit request on 20 August 2017[edit]

There is no such term or category as an "assault weapon" in the firearms industry. Where is the reference that the AK47 was called this when it was invented??? It does not exist and that reference should not be used. This term was created by politicians in certain jurisdictions in order to create a class of rifles purely based on cosmetic features taken from Hollywood Films so that laws could be created to register them and restrict ownership. The proper term is a semi-automatic or in some versions of this gun fully automatic rifle or long gun.

Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. — nihlus kryik  (talk) 04:40, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

  • You need to provide a citation for your request here before change can be made, Poeticbent talk 18:22, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the link to "Cambodia profile - Timeline" by the BBC (5 September 2017), but the AK-47 rifle is not mentioned anywhere there. Please keep looking. Thanks, Poeticbent talk 19:55, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
Just so you know, Camb17 (talk · contribs), looking at a photograph showing a truck with guerillas on top is not how the referencing works around here. You need an article that mentions both the Cambodian Civil War and the use of AK-47. Here's one such article:
— Christopher Jones (December 20, 1981), "IN THE LAND OF THE KHMER ROUGE." The New York Times
Anyhow, consider it done, Poeticbent talk 20:38, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

Translation of "avtomat"[edit]

I believe to translate Avtomat Kalashnikova as Kalashnikov's Automatic Rifle to be incorrect. In Russian terminology, avtomat is very clearly defined, in what you might call Russian ISO standards, the ГОСТ standards. As per ГОСТ 28653—90, an avtomat is defined under point 36 as an automatic carbine. Therefore I think it should be translated as Kalashnikov's Automatic Carbine Thom430 (talk) 22:03, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
