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

    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:

    One from OIF III

    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.

    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.

    Damn, can relate to that. I can get that feeling just from pics lol



    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

    By the way, I just came into about 250 Iraqi Army AK Bayonets. Talk about serendipity. I think I'll pass them out to my entire company with a memo so they can take 'em home as souvenirs. We leave theater in less than a month. The boys are counting down the days... So, Zhuk, I may just keep two. If you ever get to Texas, gimme a shout and I'll hand one over to ya. It'll look good in your collection.

    Uh, 250??! whoa.


    Ha synchronicity, so true! Love that "I just came into" posession remark, hehe very cryptic! I also think it's awesome you're handing them out to your guys as souvenirs :)


    Hey if I ever get to the US, you can count on it...and really nice of you to offer, ACES. You all keep safe over there mate.
