Question Any Kalashnikov fans?

Now there is a sub forum dedicated to firearms I thought I would ask. Well are there? I know of at least one other fellow that I hope would grace this thread with a picture or two.

Me, Im an AK fanatic. Love em all. Though Ive mostly owned just AKMs I have in my possession my fair share of other variants as well. Im mostly a collector, spending money on things like rare mags or buying a $605 rifle just for a $5 sling swivel (did that last week). I do shoot them too, my favorite to shoot are my AK-74s, accurate, soft and cheap to shoot as well.

Here is a relatively recent and most expensive and now my favorite rifle I own, an original Russian made 1977 AKM. Not only is she Russian which is rare in this country, she has a bit of history too. She was fielded by the Iranians, then sold to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (terrorist group), captured by Israeli Commandos and now sits in my safe.

I would imagine that thing took a few lives. Cool history. My buddy has a luger his grandpa picked up off a dead german soldier in Normandy. You can still see the blood on the holster. Pretty cool.

Im drooling over that russian, Im also a big fan of the Norincos, not so much for the Romy/yugos

I have a buddy with the original stock/forends/pistol grip off of a type 56, he switched to synthetic, he may sell it if the offer it right, let me know if you are needing that and i can see, he may trade for ammo (i think he wants around $75 for the furniture)

Im not sure of her battle history, its possible that she was used for nothing more than training.

I dont have any Chinese rifles in the collection at the moment so I will have to pass, thanks though.

I will admit I've had a long desire for an AK in 5.56 .

I went through the 5.56 phase with a few SAR-3s but 5.45 is so much cheaper to stockpile that I went with it.
