    Interesting use of the rear sling mount, looks like they're using them as single point slings, which while not so hot for extended carrying, are great for urban use.

    One of the troopers is using a type of carry that a sheriff's deputy taught me. Great for "port arms" style patroling because you can quickly get the rifle into action, but the weapon does dangle in your way at times. (I'm referencing the trooper in the very rear of the RPG capture photo).

    Cleaning? Obviously a doctored photograph.

    I blame the CIA/Mossad/GWB/Karl-Rove/Kiosk-Girls, they obviously want to *insert conspiracy theory at later date*.

    More patrolling.
    You see the Iraqis are evidently taught to keep the index finger of the trigger hand on the selector.
    I always learned to use the middle finger because it's a longer finger and you have more "reach."





    Here you see evidence of that "single point sling" again: front swivel apparently not used at all since you can't see the sling, and the rear swivel used for both ends of the sling.

    Checkpoint in Iraq. This one is ineresting mainly because most of the ING buttstocks are marked only with a number. This one has the entire Iraq flag on it.

    An Iraqi in Ramadi gives this thread the thumbs up.

    (I get the idea that the Bulgarian AK's with 90-degree gas blocks mostly ended up in Ramadi judging from the photos).

    More marking variations:



    Another training exercise:


    What's with wrapping the sling around the front sight? This is the second such photo.


    What's taped to the handguard?

    Guard duty. This rifle is missing the buttstock entirely.



    Patrol in the city streets.






    Raid on an insurgent house in Baghdad. These guys are providing perimeter security.

    Check out those camo'ed Bulgarian AK's !

    Great pics, guys. Does anyone have any AKK pics? The AKK is the original Bulgarian AK-47. These pics appear to all be the AR-M1, if I'm not mistaken.
