Izhevsk, Russia - Despite sanctions imposed by the U.S., arm sales are booming for the Russian arms manufacturer: Kalashnikov Concern.

"Reviving a business that was almost shot"


www.msn.com...





I was just wondering...Does any foreign civilian, living outside the United States, have a lawful chance of privately buying any arms manufactured by Kalashnikov Concern, other than from any military defense budget appropriations?

I was really hoping that they were going to be able open facilities here, but I'm glad that they're finding a market. They make some damn dependable weapons. I've inly ever owned a Romanian and Chinese Variant, though.

Could have been some jobs for Americans, but government got in the way, again.

If I understand your question correctly, yes, you can. Kalashnikov sell civilian versions of most every one of their military weapons. Then, of course, there are black markets where you can lay hand on military grade Kalashnikovs with no problem what so ever.

I feel likewise.

I was fortunate enough to buy a whole slew of AK's or variants, before the Maryland Assault Weapons Ban went into effect.

I own a scoped Romanian PSL in 7.62x54R

Including:

Iraqi Tabuk scoped sniper rifle in 7.62x39

Krebs Custom KTR-03S Saiga in 7.62x39

Saiga AK74 in 5.45x39

In the US we used to be able to buy WASR's that were a mil spec Romanian semi auto AK-47 variant. Alot of people knock them, but I have dropped many many rounds through them and they are A-OK.

Have you shot an AK?

The 3 that I have extensive experience with have been accurate and dependable. One was a thumb hole stock single stack, the 2nd was a traditional pistol grip single stack and the 3rd was a traditional pistol grip double stack.

Very good rifles, and they were affordable.

My buddy (now a female) has a PSL, I hate the damn things, they just feel awkward to me. I'm not sure why. I thinks its because I don't like having those sloppy actions so close to my face LoL. I don't like bullpups either, just awkward.

I put a scope on my Romanian AK with a Tapco T6 outfit. It was sexy, but too alot of reworking to get a scope mount durable enough to deal with the spring slapping around. Then I had to add a few mounting bolts to keep the cover in a relatively stationed spot. Overall 10/10. Was worth it.

I've always wanted a sweet Saiga .308, but haven't been able to afford one yet.

Too bad I cant't buy an AK-12. Those are some neat rifles.
