    I'll be heading to Colombia. Maybe for a brief "vacation"? Anybody up for it?

    I was always wondering what those silver ak's the auc in columbia had been using. Now i know. thanks. They turned in a bunch of them when 2000 of them disbanded. There are like 15,000 of them. I wonder what happens to them all. Probably destroyed but I don't know for sure.

    So what is it? Another type of bluing or is it just wear? I noticed that many of the rifles in the images have that same "finish".

    Wear and tear on the finish.

    Iraqi National Guard. Look at those milled AK's!



    Same photo, but uncropped:

    I don't know much about this one, other than it was supposedly taken in Iraq. It looks a lot like an SA M7 Classic, doesn't it? Sorry the pic is so crappy.
    EDIT: Deleted to save Photobucket space. It wasn't a Bulgarian AK anyway.

    Great pics Zane! Thanks for posting.

    I'm about 90% sure that the pic with the bundeled up GI is a Hungarian SA-85 stamped AKM. The angle of the buttstock looks to be too straight out for a milled gun with that drop built into it.

    I can't make out the receiver, it's too dark, but the drop (or lack thereof) makes me think Hungarian stamped.

    Found another one. Iraqi National Guard training. The rifle is slightly out of focus, but it appears to be a Bulgarian milled AK with 90-degree gas block. The seam down the center of the buttstock gives it away as a polymer stock.

    EDIT: I lightened it in Photoshop. You can just barely make out the seam on the stock now, but you can see more clearly that it's milled.

    Bulgarian AK's in combat in Iraq. I tried enhancing this in Photoshop, but the image just distorts. You actually have to open it in Photoshop and zoom in to appreciate that the two rifles in the middle are Bulgarian milled AK's.



    Here's one that was posted elsewhere (the Iraqi pic thread), here enlarged and sharpened in Photoshop:

    Once again, you have to look close, but they ARE Bulgarian milled AK's.

    (If you open the photo in Photoshop and zoom in, it becomes obvious).

    You almost think the rifle in the foreground is a Yugo receiver, but it's a trick of the light bouncing off the charging handle.

    Sure shows some variation in optics mounting methods, eh?
