    Are you serious? The AK-47 is a trademark (or the abbreviation of a
    trademark). And there's not enough details on the symbol to designate the
    exact model of this firearm (anything that ressembles more or less to this
    "tool" would be used as well without notable difference.

    Anyway, this type of usage makes it a political logo, not an orthography...
    The best way to reproduce it is not with text but with a graphic (and this
    decoration is not spelled orally).
