here is somewhat a rare bird i broke out today and ran a few mags through , decided to snap a few pics , probably should have done so after a good cleaning , been a while since it seen any action , a Norinco 86S factory 56 ,i think less than 2 k made it in , i purchased new in 89 as a discharge out of the Navy present to myself (only reason i can remember) i had several other AK's when i got out but this is the only one that survived the cut each time i hit a rough patch

up until i got into the Navy i had only owned .22's and shotguns , my room mate was from Kentucky and his folks owned a small gunshop , so he introduced me to a whole world of firearms , he in fact laughed at me for wanting to buy it the day i purchased it

all the accessories except the bayo have been long lost , most didnt make the purge when moving back to the east coast from the west coast , at the time had no idea they would add value later in life

the fore grip is attached and folds up , it is wood , not bakelite , the muzzle device has slots in it that serve as wire cutters , just grab the rifle , shove the wire in the muzzle device slots and squeeze the trigger and let the bullet do the rest , perfect shot every time , black bakelite pistol grip , and probably the only Chicom that has Peep sights, (someone correct me if i am wrong regarding peep sights) , they came with 2 styles of charging handles that are in the carry handle like the early AR's , a straight charging handle and a curved sorta like a trigger , never found out which/or if one is more rare than the other , if someone knows let me know , cleaning kit is attached to the butt , this rifle is surprisingly acurate

Rifle enjoyed a short lived fame when included in an Andy Sadaris film.

Yes, look for Eric Estrada.

He is shooting/holding it.
i was being a smart ass because of all the knockers bouncing around , i counted i think 3 appearances of it

i am certain that mag is one of the originals that came with it ,i do not recall buying chinese 20's , i remember buying tanker mags when they were cheap but not any chinese i think it came with 2 ,but that was a lifetime ago so there is a good chance there is another packed away somewhere , i will find it while tracking down something else some day

AK bullpups just look sexy. I wish there were more conversion kits for making a normal rifle into a bullpup.
i think that would be tough , they kept the barrel length the same , used the same bolt and carrier , but flopped the FCG and the magwell , not sure if this was to get around SBR or for keeping the weapon balanced , placing the added weight of a loaded mag back closer to the shooter definitely helps with control with such a short package

they linked the trigger and sear by a metal wire that feeds along the side of the receiver ,its out of the way but still in my opinion adds a weak link , a part that can break , i shot the rifle a good bit early on but maybe average a couple mags a year for the last 20 years or more

Nice rifle you have there, thanks for sharing.

I enjoy taking mine to the range. As you have said it is very accurate. In my use it just takes a few rounds downrange to figure out how it likes to be held, and then watch the smile grow.

Along with my shooter I have a safe queen, still in the bag in the box with all the accessories. I doubt that you could pry that one from my cold dead hands! :D

ive had mine for almost 33 years now , no idea how many rounds anymore , not that i ever kept track , just worried i would break something that would render it a paper weight so she doesnt get much play anymore

nice collection there
