I come across them over here in Iraq all of the time. Tempting, but impossible.

zhuk 06-23-2009 12:30 PM

God Save the Queen.....

I have!
 
I've not only confiscated several on past tours, but even had the opportunity to fire a few. Gold Plated, etc., it's amazing the effort some of these folks put into their AKs. I even found one in a trunk during a search that was completely chrome plated.

Of course, the current theater of operations is completely different than OIFs of the past. Getting less and less fun. Perhaps I'll get a trip to Afghanistan next. I can only hope. I'm a little tired of Iraq...

Yeah I guess heads would have rolled - literally - if not enough effort was put in, huh!

This chromed one is just superb:

Be careful of what you wish for mate...I've heared from an SAS guy I know Afghanistan is a whole nother thing :( If you do go, stay safe!

One of my finest Troopers found this one. From the way he's holding it, and that look in his eyes, I know he wanted to keep it.

Jesus, almighty
 
Talk about a pimps AK. There it is. Thanks for the pictures.

LOL at the pimp AK's! Zhuk, are you gonna test out the wire cutting ability of the bayo/sheath combination?

P.S. If you happen to get to the southern U.S. before Obama takes our guns, i have a buddy with a semi-auto WASR10 you can plink with. I like it, but my SKS feels much more substantial.

Yeah plan to put it to some kind of use...since it can't be in it's natural enviroment :p

Now you're tempting me orangello! Only trouble is, if i did ever make it to the US...I might end up 'MIA' somehow & miss my return flight. And you're got enough illegals already, haven't you? :D
