Why have these two weapon systems stood the test of time? I know the UK uses the SA and China uses the QBZ but where else in the world you see other nations adopt these weapon systems? It seems that the m16 line and the Kalashnikovs have the most "mass produced" and used status.

Early cold war was a major time for weapon production and testing, if we end up seeing another world war there will probably be another batch of new rifles made by superpowers
