|East Germany was, at first, suppiled with USSR-manufactured weapons; Mosin-Nagant Model-1944 carbines,PPsh-41, DP/DPM and the SG-43/SGM. In the late 1950's they began
to manufacture their own Kalashinkovs in Suhl. DDR manufactured AKs are of very good quality and probably the best versions ever made.One of the best was the 22 LR version
of the AK47 known as the KK MPi Mod.69.
