It seems like it would be far easier and more efficient to continue to manufacture 7.62mm x39 S ammunition and distribute it to units armed with the millions of AK-47 and AKM variants already out there than it would be to recall all of those weapons and rechamber them/redistribute them.

In the meantime, older AK models would continue to be replaced with new AK-74 variants and whatever's left over would continue to receive issue of the 7.62mm S ammo.
I agree with you there -- the idea is silly, if you think about it logically. But it's still a good "flavoring" element.
