The first AK47s were actually stamped, but because they couldn't always get the welds right they switched to milled receivers for 8-10 years or so. Then back to stamped as soon as technology came far enough to get the welds right every time.
They kept them a secret from the world for years, by the time we learned of them they were all milled.
Just passing through...
