Th AK pattern rifle was proliferated by the Soviet Union and the commblov nations and China as noted earlier.
Other countries like the USA or western Europe were less inclined to supply weapons to many countries.
Military firearms are manufactured for durability and ease of routine maintenance.
The AK is a bit easier than some.
Others like the M16 are much easier to assemble from parts and repair generally.
