    Recycling by Paris.

    France on Tuesday, December 11 handed over 1,400 AK-47 assault rifles and three amphibious vehicles to the Central African Republic to shore up its beleaguered armed forces. French Defence Minister Florence Parly oversaw the handover at a ceremony at M’Polo military base in the capital Bangui. French officials said the 1,400 guns are a gift.


    In a November 2016 report, CAR said the seizure included 2,000 new-condition AKM-pattern assault rifles characteristic of Iranian manufacture and that the “weight of evidence” indicated that Iran was the likely source and Somalia and/or Yemen the intended destinations.

    Any details strike y'all as particularly Iranian?

    I'd look at them and in my ignorance just shrug, think Norinco MAK-90 converted to UF...

    Exactly, but if you got back to the beginning of this thread the Iranians went Chinese-style.
    Can't find a single pic showing the trunnion and selector markings.

    So looking at some of the (possible) Iranian AKs with the folding bayonet pics - even the wood looks the same as on the Chinese guns.

    I've got a set of, what I previously assumed to be Chinese folding bayo Type-56, furniture that came back from Iraq during Gulf War 1.0. Now I'm wondering if there is a possibility that they might have come off an Iran/Iraq War captured Iranian AK, pressed into Iraqi service. Any guesses as to how one might tell the diff?

    I've been considering putting these together on a Chinese kit build. But if I have the excuse to build an Iranian model, I might take that instead.

    Found an image of an Iraqi AK receiver from an AK captured in Syria. No trunnion markings, serial # engraved just below trunnion.

    Being a Pakistani sharing border with Iran, I had been to Iran border a couple of times and you won't believe they had AMD's, Chinese, Hungarian front foregrip & Russian AK's. Now I don't know either they make clones in Iran or import them from the respective countries. But one thing was common all of their ak furniture was mostly in black colour.
