Are you talking about a "Maadi"?
IIRC, they do command a premium price, but i never really researched them.

Did find them mentioned a few times on the forum using "search". They sound nice, built on ruski equipment in Egypt.

I have had a Maadi since the mid 90's and never shoot it. The trigger slaps hard and I get a lot of FTF with the round getting stuck on the feed ramps.

Mine looks like Achmed was 6 years old and got spray paint from the dollar store, but runs like a champ.
