Since I was the age of 13 I have wanted a Maadi. I grew up part of my life in Maadi, Egypt and saw these rifles on a daily basis on just about every street corner being carried by police guards. I know the AK purists will cringe when they see it but I did decide to tac mine out a little. Don't worry, it's all reversible! My plan is to get a Saiga, convert it and then move all the stuff over to it and return my Maadi back to it's pure beauty.
