Even the AK knockoffs and derivatives sell for $400 to $1500 over here. The real AK47’s go for abut $20-$40 in the countries where they are prevalent.
It just ain’t fair.
Pakistani street shops stamp them out and sell them on the streets for just a few bucks.
It’s a throw-away, which is why it is the revolutionaries weapon of choice.
Actually, this is a GOOD IDEA.
The weapons and the ammo now have to be home-made, or brought in, instead of simply stolen/sold from the government....
