Sucks to be an AK owner.

The possibility of THIS is the single primary reason that I went with a U.S. gun chambered for a NATO round rather than an AK; my supply will be steady and more or less unaffected - except for the Mosin-Nagant ammo, which comes from Russia.

But if you own an AK-47, or even worse, an AK-74, you can kiss your affordable ammo goodbye. '74s are totally reliant on Russian surplus 5.45, and the bulk of 7.62x39 comes from Russia, too.
