Welcome to the group!

Nice boy you have there.

My daughter was in Switzerland not too long ago for a medical conference. She fell in love with Lugano and had a hard time coming home.

And it's probably full auto, isn't it? Welcome :)
Thank you!
No, It's a 1993 Tula made semiautomatic from factory :)
It's a rare model. Usually they are full auto or demil converted, but you need a special permit for those.

Lugano is my city, it's beautiful and quiet.
I understand your daughter, come back home from NYC was hard for me too, I was feeling good there..

Believe our AKS74U are related to each other
Hello Daisy!
Yes, seems they are brothers, I'm curious to know where did you find it..
I texted you in private, I'd love to know about what you think, please.
I'll be waiting for your kind answer.

Thank you

IIRC '93 is the only year you can get factory semis. Rumor has it, they were made from leftover stock as government procurement stopped in '92.
For most collectors I've met, those semi Tulas are unicorns or deemed fake.
Maybe someone can shed some light on this matter.

Great gun btw, is it the one from Lagardere?

I have a Swiss k11 in my collection one of my favorites!
Oh, don't open THAT can of worms. I've been into Swiss rifles forever, got probably about 20 or 25 of them, from a 1868 Vetterli to Zfk-55 and quite a few in-between. These are the last C&Rs I'd ever sell :)
