I think I remember those kits when they came in. Something about seawater getting on them during the ride on the boat over here.Kind of resembles one of my 1979 G kits.
Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...
BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

Are those free?
How did the Romanians supply the Croats with weapons and the Serbs with gasoline all at the same time while the two of them were at war?
How did Romania sell weapons to Iran and Iraq while the two were at war?
Also a good question is who is funding these people? Meaning, where do they get the money for all the equipment? Not just rifles.
Remember, China and Russia are prohibited to sell their weapons in US, not the rest of the world. It's just like the economic embargo on Cuba and Iran. They are trading with the rest of the world, not with US.
US was also selling/giving weapons to Afghanistan while they were at war with the USSR, just not officially.
It's a dirty business.
With regards to all the oddball firearms we found in Iraq in '03...Saddam was buying anything and everything he could due to the embargoes making a regular supply chain all but impossible to maintain.
We found cases and crates full of scopes, mags, ammo, and rifle parts he would buy onsies and twosies of just to try and have some semblance of an armed, functioning military.
