    I don't see them here at the warehouse.

    Shame about the rear stubs. The Hungarian T3s were the best from any country, IMO.

    I should have saved at least one, just to pull out and admire once in a while.

    Let’s not forget the fatal flaw shared by most AK55 rifles - the barrels were buggered-up from the start due to faulty manufacturing that resulted in the chrome lining flaking off almost immediately. Perhaps there are exceptions, but every single AK55 barrel I’ve seen was flawed in this way, accompanying kits that looked practically unfired. I’d never build or have the desire to own one for this reason. Plus, in general, Hungarian AKs have less combat history.
    We've got a hell of a lot more in common with the fellow citizens we're being trained to hate than the puppetmasters training us to hate them.
