Most likely a good number of them are Afghan vets also so this isn't their first rodeo. I have seen videos of old Afghan vets telling the 18-22 year olds orders and they refer to them as papa, old man, whatever. They called one old man flamethrower or something because thats what his job was in Afghanistan

That's probably Albanian. They made an almost direct copy of the Chinese Spiker, but without dimples.

Been too busy to post much lately. Lets get this thread alive again.

Sorry dont renember if i posted it before

I "deployed" /went tdy with the 353 sog from raf mildehall uk to Croatia, as a mechanic for the 2 mc-130p air refuelers or combat shadows (moab droppers) who were there to refuel the 2 army mh-47's from the 160th for a giant spec ops ex/pony show. Multi branch, multi country Jackal Stone 09.

I got to check out a croat mil guys m70ab2, he was really surprised i knew the model name. Can thank shot gun news and my early days browsing the files, plus i almost bought one in alaska prior to that but they wanted an outrageous $400+ for it doh helo guys had some cool guns too they were also the mechanics lol.

Make sure to get some glow sticks and raver candy lol, i swear theres a few AK's in there. And i swear i watched part of the bus seige but my memory is already pretty fuzzy.

Looks like the mag is a 7.62x51 NATO (308) so my best guess is that is what it was made into. Similar to this:

I do believe you are correct. I was thinking it was the angle that made it look so large.

Lots of stuff don’t match up with M76 images
No barrel pin
Lightning cut is wider
Gas block and barrel od at block
Selector position .... 76s don’t look to go all the way down
Short between mag and receiver front

I'm not saying it's an all original M76. I believe it's one that's had a lot of parts replaced at one point, including the barrel, which is common in war torn countries. That's an M76 receiver though. The angle is what makes the distance between mag and receiver front different though.
