I own an AK-47 (shows as "owned" in store/buy/assault rifile) but holding 1 for the weapon switcher just shows my M133 shotgun.

What happened to my AK-47? How can I equip it again?

Strange mechanic in the game, you can only "equip" weapons that you've "owned" at the gun store, or you can equip a gun you loot outside the store, depending on the weapon slots you have. – user37802 Dec 2 '12 at 17:30

Go to one of the weapon shops, select the AK-47 and press 'Equip' at the bottom of the screen. That should do it :)

Answers should be based on a source or experience, maybe try to find a link that supports your answer. – ChargingPun Nov 30 '12 at 15:37
It's from my own experience playing the game yesterday. Although I'm not certain to which key it was aligned. – Thomas Nov 30 '12 at 15:49
Fair enough. But your answer sounds unsure. It would be a better answer if it was true (which it may very well be), and an even better one if it is verifiable - via link to the control scheme). – ChargingPun Nov 30 '12 at 15:52
Ok, Once I get the time to launch the game I'll post my findings. :) – Thomas Nov 30 '12 at 15:55
Updated, I was about right! ^^ – Thomas Nov 30 '12 at 19:48

As far as I can tell, you have to be at the store or self serve in a safe house. Just act like you're going to buy a waapon, click on owned, select a slot.
