Russian Simonov Type 45 aka the Russian SKS rifle - 7.62x39mm.

The SKS is a Soviet 7.62x39mm caliber semi-automatic carbine, designed in 1945 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov. SKS is an acronym for Samozaryadniy Karabin sistemi Simonova, 1945 (Self-loading Carbine, Simonov's system, 1945), or SKS 45. The Soviets rather quickly phased the SKS carbine out of first-line service, replacing it with the AK-47, but it remained in second-line service for decades afterwards. It remains a ceremonial arm today. It was widely exported and produced by the former Eastern Bloc nations, as well as China, where it was designated the "Type 56", East Germany as the "Karabiner S" and in North Korea as the "Type 63". It is today popular on the civilian surplus market in many countries. The SKS was one of the first weapons chambered for the 7.62x39mm M43 round later used in the AK-47 and RPK.

This gun is the perfect zombie gun: continued operation like only Russians understand, very common ammunition, built in bayonet, ease of service, simplicity, acuracy, and a semi-automatic rate of fire. Aftermarket modifications are available for bullpupping and integration of Picatinny rails. However, a regular field strip is strongly recommanded. While early Soviet models of the SKS had spring-loaded firing pins, most variants have a free-floating firing pin within the bolt. Because of this design, care must be taken during cleaning, especially after long storage, to ensure that the firing pin does not stick in the forward position within the bolt. Some slam-fire issues (the gun firing in full-automatic after releasing the trigger after the first shot) can happen due to SKS firing pins that are stuck in the forward position. If the shooter isn't prepared, he could lost the control of the weapon and injure or kill an innocent.
