    Question Where Kalashnikov is Buried?

    I cannot find any Photos of Kalashnikov's Grave! I found Photos of His Funeral, but not the Grave Site it self. I have Bling. If some one has some other Search Engine that is better Please post Photo of his Grave here. Thanks Paul

    He is buried at the Federal Military Memorial Cemetery in Moscow. Find A Grave doesn't show it - http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg...GRid=122067620. It just gives you an aerial view of the building where his casket is located - https://www.google.com/maps/place/55...2!4d37.6752777. My bet is you won't find a picture of his actual grave.

    Edit - I believe you see his grave at the beginning of this video -

    After today, it's all historical.

    Thank you for Posting that. I like how Putin came over to see his Design Team, and His Daughters, in the Video. I still remember the haunting and well done Write up the Editor of the NRA American Rifleman did on Kalashnikov. "The Peasant Farm Boy, Who rose to LTG. and became one of the Greatest Firearms Designer's of all Time". He was 94 when we lost him.
