In 1943 the 7.62x41mm cartridge was developed, and was sent to all Soviet small arms design bureaus and organizations. At least ten automatic rifles designs were been presented included the AS-44 (AS stands for Alexey Sudayev), in Russian AC-44 (AC stands for Алексе́й Суда́ев), designed by Alexey Ivanovich Sudayev, who already designed the PPS submachinegun. In mid 1944 the AS-44 went in trials and it was the best design. Ordered in low numbers in the spring of 1945, the AS-44 went to Soviet troops for further trials during the summer of that same year, just after VE-Day. After being evaluated by Soviet troops, they generally liked the AS-44 for his longer effective range compared to PPSh-41 submachine gun. It also proved in better accuracy as semi-automatic rifle. However the positive evaluation doesn't lead the design in mass production. It needs to be have more modifications such like the empty weight off 5 kg is too heavy. The next trials would had started in early 1946. However, the death of Sudayev on August 17, 1946 lead the AS-44 history to the death also....
