They are horrible...
S&W bought a shotgun company that was going out of business, and used that design.

In the case of the Yugos it was old stock for sure

They did however manufacture the ammo for it 7,39 mm Kurz for decades. Even now you cna buy new manufacture of that round form PPU.
The rifle was relegated to reserve stocks in the 80's.

In the case of the czechs I dont know if there may have been some new manufacture since they had such a huge chunk of germany's war industry in bohemia/moravia.... but een so it might still have been old stocks, but ther eis some uncertainy here.
they did for example keep manuafacuring the SDKZ 2541 ( Hanomag half track) for some time after the war.

Interestingly the VZ58 is also quite reminiscent of the STG 44

As for East germany it was war stock for units first with the "kasernierte Volkspolizei", but the manufacturer was inside the old East germany (Suhl) so one presumes spare parts where no problems for a quite while.
According to many sources the STG 44 was judged a better gun than the AK47 by many who fired it. (i have not had a chance to compare both)

Iraq had STG 44 for a while for osme units and got them from war stocks someone sold.

Late in the War a lot of these rifles were made 24/7 undergound and at wars end thousands where still as yet undistrubuted.

If you can't find them, you can reload your own reusing reformed .32-20 Winchester case. they are not long enough to give you the sealed effect of the Soviet round, but is still fun to shoot and cheaper

I know this is not official quiz stuff, but I add this because I like this little pistol that was mentioned. The case head of the .32-20 is too thick, so you may have to buy another of the part that supports the base of the cartridge at full cock, and trim some metal off the face of it. The thicker .32-20 case head may not let your cylinder fully turn to battery, and the pistol won't cock. Just trim a very little. I am not the person who discovered how to make this work. It was a guy on You-tube named "thenagantman"

My real quiz question is: What is "782 gear"?

I forgot, the answer 7.62x25 is not correct. The 7.62x25mm go in the Tokarev 33, the 7.62x38 go in the Nagant 1895
