Well....it reminded me of the AK’s I saw in Vietnam. I flew Hueys & when we picked up long range patrol guys they brought all kinds of captured s***. Most were tired looking like the one shown, some were brand new, none were `bringbackable’ tho some did manage to mail them home a piece at a time. Heck toward the end in 1972 there were so many messed up people that customs MPs told me `we’re only looking for drugs’. I could have brought back a like new AK in my Pioneer stereo speakers but chose not to.
Then a few years later the Chicoms were exporting legal AK’s so I bought one & stayed legal.

Hey, I had some of those speakers back in 1990’s - you could have easily hid a carbine in them...

Yeah, but those ones aren't fully auto like the ones you saw in Vietnam. During the Gulf war there were all kind of AK's everywhere, but if you got caught trying to smuggle one back you were up poop creek without a paddle....
Our ops officer collected a whole bunch of them up along with other military items for "display" in a unit museum. True enough they did make a museum once we got back. I just wonder how many "extra" pieces never made it to the museum and into the hands of some of our officers...
