Top 10 Most Powerful Guns In The World
Like all other technologies, firearm technology has improved greatly in the last century. It took multiple centuries to go from a single-shot musket with limited range to a repeating rifle accurate out to a quarter of a mile, but it has taken only a century to go from that repeating rifle to fully automatic weapons accurate out to as far as two miles. These advances in technology have created a new generation of incredibly potent armaments whose deadliness is only limited by the user. Here are the top 10 most powerful guns in the world.

While it does not have the sheer firepower, range, accuracy or ease of concealment of the other guns on the list, what makes the AK-47 the most dangerous gun in the world is simplicity and numbers. The ubiquity of the weapon is scary – there have been over 100 million AK-47 or licensed variants sold since its creation. It is inexpensive, easy to fix, and incredibly durable. The operation is uncomplicated, making it easy for even the least experienced gunman to pick up and use.

A gun you can't see is especially dangerous, and if that gun can fire off rounds at the rate of 20 per second, watch out.

It is used world-wide, with over 90 countries adopting it for military or law enforcement use. It is popular on the other side as well, with criminals and terrorists choosing it for concealment and plentiful ammunition.
