    When did the West start to become aware of synthetic plum furniture AK-74s?

    I know that production of the plum furniture models started in 1985, so I was wondering when did we first become aware of them and how? When did photos first started to show them? Or did I already ask this question?

    I’d ping Larry Vickers. He’s pretty good about answering queries on social media. He’s also on this site.

    I messaged him on his Facebook page, and he said that he wasn't sure.

    I personally first became aware when photos from what is now known as the "Russian White House Seige" were published.

    Who were those troops? What type of uniforms were they wearing?

    I believe they were troops who sided with Yeltsin.

    I don't know the uniforms - just know that I want one in my size. I was never good with Soviet uniforms, but I'm pretty good with East German and Balkan uniforms.
