For the lovers of the AK

A film about war in Afghanistan. Chock full of AKs.

Oh, here’s the twist….it’s 1987, and details the Afghanista war from the Soviet Union perspective.  Looks quite interesting and well

What does a fully automatic AK cost?

The Firearm Blog has an interesting article regarding Russia’s gripes on being undersold in AK manufacturing. Good read…

But I latched onto this one quote…

“The Russians stated that the “Arsenal” production was undercutting the gun prices on international tenders citing as example a 2003 tender for the supply of 40,000 sub-machine guns for the Iraqi army for USD 65 each won by Arsenal and lost by the Russian “Kalashnikov” manufacturer.”

Correct me if I am wrong, but did that just state that the price from manufacturer for a brand new fully automatic AK is a mere $65.  (And they’re asking $600 for the semi-auto versions here in the states these days.)

Bulk purchase order anyone?
