Default Sorry AK74 owners.

Looks like 5.45x39mm ammo has been banned from import.

Good for you! And well before a decade passes domestic manufacture of 5.45x39 should be geared up. No doubt though that AK-74 owners will miss the ultracheap surplus ammo imports of the last decade!

I wonder if this will bring the price of a used AK74 down?

Or... buy a "worthless" rifle cheap from someone who can't find ammo. Then have fun!

And when we get back to having a non communistic government in the whitehouse who respects the constitution and trade, we will even have 22lrs back in stock. Until then, I'm good on that too
