Default Narco AK with unusual magazine

A couple of years ago I worked for the DoD in an agency who ran the counter narcotic mission south of the border (we were "invited" to help by the host nation).

Anyway, long story short is the DEA used to send daily SITREPS (emails) on the success of our/their mission. Included in those reports were various photos of the bad guys (both alive and dead), drugs & cash seized, and photos of weapons being used by the bad guys. They had everything from Ruger Security Six revolvers to Browning M1919 belt feds to Barrett .50 BMG.

This one made me laugh. I can't imagine the mag actually fed correctly, but who knows?

Can't remember the capacity, maybe 70-90 rounds? Dunno, but I think it was some Chinese creation and apparently never fed worth a fuck. I've seen one or two, only at gun shows, though.

Those are 100 round "novelty" mags.

They were heavily sold more than 10 years back.

Key word: "novelty" ( they don't work-a so good )

50 and 75 round "novelty" stick mags were also made by the same company ( those didn't work-a so good, either )

Taken from the header of each email:

"This report is a compilation of extracted translations of XXXXXXX and U.S. open source information and not evaluated intelligence. Use of these news articles/extractions in no way represent the views of XXXXXX. Open source news articles and titles are sometimes re-captioned and may be shortened during editing to remove unnecessary information."

Does that address your concerns?

(I suppose now that I've retired, I can post a bit more on this forum)

Google turns up the same image all over the web since at least 2016...

Reeks of GUN-NUT`s nonsensical ramblings. Can we get a mod in here?

As someone who pulled a reverse-image-search and found the same image across multiple foreign websites I`d love to see this.

Everything in those reports were open source (UNCLAS), so I'm not surprised you can find some of them on the Internet.

Absolutely every one of your images shows up elsewhere on the internet. You`re bad at this, OP. Besides, the dates listed seem a fair bit more recent than your timeframe...

Nails, I`ll accept a temp ban for gore on this one. No biggie in this context.

See that? May 14, 2015? Yeah. You expect us to seriously believe that, what, your buddies are still magically sending you pictures of their actions south of the border? Doubtful at best. I`m going to say that you currently have a tab open under google images, probably searching nothing more than "Narco" or "Cartel".

Fjordforder,
What part of "Open Source" don't you understand? Did you even read the original post? Just because they have been posted on the Internet since I received them in mid 2015 makes me a liar?

I'm sure most, if not all of the photos in the original reports have been posted on the Internet since then. They were contained in UNCLAS correspondence!

And just because I didn't post on this forum since joining in 2009 makes me a troll? It just means I had better things to do!

These are the `files. When something smells fishy, expect the barbecue to come out. Don`t like it? Find some other forum to spout your drivel. Maybe you`ll get someone to believe you elsewhere, but not here.

Nobody "magically" sent me anything. I was on a distro list and I received them in May 2015 just before I retired.

...Would it satisfy you if I sent you the original report in a .pdf file? I challenge you to send me a PM with your email address and be prepared to eat some crow!

Being here supposedly for 8 years and not reading the rules. Lol

Note a total lack of actual sources...

Image two is an edited version. Very subtly might I add.

I leave to watch my show and come back to 3 passive aggressive emails.

I`m saying GUN-NUT, or an old timer troll realizing he had a backup account?

I know this will probably end up being an exercise in futility, but here goes nothing:

First off, let me apologize for posting a photo that conflicted with the CoC on this board (seriously). As has been pointed out, I’ve been a member here for over eight years so I should have been more aware of the rules – my bad.

You guys are a really tough crowd - some of the comments really hurt my feelings! I had to schedule an extra visit with my therapist this week just to deal with my trauma!

I saw where a board member posted a comment he received some “passive aggressive” emails from me and he then posted the pdf file I sent him. I didn’t give him permission to do so, but that cat is already out of the bag…. I had to then look up what passive aggressive meant…not sure I agree with his professional diagnosis, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Here’s the bottom line: I really don’t care if anyone believes me or not, this is the Internet and there are chair borne commandos behind every keyboard. I served 25 years on active duty with the US Air Force and then worked for another five years as a civil servant for the DoD. Believe my story or not, I could care less either way!

…At this point should I just go ahead and post a copy of my retired ID card and my DD 214 to prove my military service? How about all my SF 50’s from my civilian career? Maybe my civilian appraisals too? How about a copy of my Joint Civilian Service Achievement Award recognizing me for my work during the counter drug mission?

…One member has communicated to me there is nothing I can do to prove to him what I say is true. Interesting perspective…

Let me say, I have nothing to prove to any of you. I merely thought it would be entertaining posting a photo that was contained in a daily email I used to receive (along with hundreds of others on a distro list) from the DEA, of an AK with a ridiculously large mag. I guess it ended up being entertaining, but not for the reasons I intended. That particular photo was in an email I received in the spring of 2015 from the Phoenix DEA field office. Apparently (according to one industrious board member) it has since been posted numerous times on the Internet since I first received it.

I clearly stated in a follow-on post the reports were derived from “Open Source Reporting”. To the uninformed that means: The material was already in the public domain – both here in the US and the host country. I’m starting to feel like Sigourney Weaver’s character Ripley in the movie Aliens 2 - “Did IQ’s just sharply drop while I’ve been away?” These were not DEA intel assessments and they were not classified – they were merely collating and passing along info they deemed germane to the mission.

Some have questioned why I’ve been a member here since 2009 and only posted three times. I didn’t realize there was a rule against that. Well guys, I guess the dirty little secret I’m hiding is I actually had better things to do all those years than post here on this board. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true! But the fact I only have three posts does not in and of itself prove I am a troll/liar/bullshit artist, does it? I’m sure some of you will say “YES!”

I’m not going away and I’m not going to post a big farewell speech and then give everyone a big “F*** You” on my way out the door. No, I think I’m just going to continue to stick around and check in from time to time. Maybe I’ll even post a few comments every couple of years. I still have several AKs and there is still good info to be found on this board.

…If people do (or don’t) believe me, that is their prerogative. As we used to say, “it is what it is!”

I suppose this is the Internet and people will think what they want to think & believe what they want to believe – I can’t change that.

I guess I will now go back to living in the basement of my mother’s home and lurk some more…..

What is the shovel your digging this hole with made out of?
I need some of that material for the needle stop on my BS meter becuase everything else fails from the needle hitting it so hard.

I have seen several of the pics posted above previously.

It's kind of like when a guy posted pics of one of my builds as his work once on a differant site. LOL.

First off, let me apologize for posting a photo that conflicted with the CoC on this board (seriously). As has been pointed out, I’ve been a member here for over eight years so I should have been more aware of the rules – my bad.

You guys are a really tough crowd - some of the comments really hurt my feelings! I had to schedule an extra visit with my therapist this week just to deal with my trauma!

I saw where a board member posted a comment he received some “passive aggressive” emails from me and he then posted the pdf file I sent him. I didn’t give him permission to do so, but that cat is already out of the bag…. I had to then look up what passive aggressive meant…not sure I agree with his professional diagnosis, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Here’s the bottom line: I really don’t care if anyone believes me or not, this is the Internet and there are chair borne commandos behind every keyboard. I served 25 years on active duty with the US Air Force and then worked for another five years as a civil servant for the DoD. Believe my story or not, I could care less either way!

…At this point should I just go ahead and post a copy of my retired ID card and my DD 214 to prove my military service? How about all my SF 50’s from my civilian career? Maybe my civilian appraisals too? How about a copy of my Joint Civilian Service Achievement Award recognizing me for my work during the counter drug mission?

…One member has communicated to me there is nothing I can do to prove to him what I say is true. Interesting perspective…

Let me say, I have nothing to prove to any of you. I merely thought it would be entertaining posting a photo that was contained in a daily email I used to receive (along with hundreds of others on a distro list) from the DEA, of an AK with a ridiculously large mag. I guess it ended up being entertaining, but not for the reasons I intended. That particular photo was in an email I received in the spring of 2015 from the Phoenix DEA field office. Apparently (according to one industrious board member) it has since been posted numerous times on the Internet since I first received it.

I clearly stated in a follow-on post the reports were derived from “Open Source Reporting”. To the uninformed that means: The material was already in the public domain – both here in the US and the host country. I’m starting to feel like Sigourney Weaver’s character Ripley in the movie Aliens 2 - “Did IQ’s just sharply drop while I’ve been away?” These were not DEA intel assessments and they were not classified – they were merely collating and passing along info they deemed germane to the mission.

Some have questioned why I’ve been a member here since 2009 and only posted three times. I didn’t realize there was a rule against that. Well guys, I guess the dirty little secret I’m hiding is I actually had better things to do all those years than post here on this board. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true! But the fact I only have three posts does not in and of itself prove I am a troll/liar/bullshit artist, does it? I’m sure some of you will say “YES!”

I’m not going away and I’m not going to post a big farewell speech and then give everyone a big “F*** You” on my way out the door. No, I think I’m just going to continue to stick around and check in from time to time. Maybe I’ll even post a few comments every couple of years. I still have several AKs and there is still good info to be found on this board.

…If people do (or don’t) believe me, that is their prerogative. As we used to say, “it is what it is!”

I suppose this is the Internet and people will think what they want to think & believe what they want to believe – I can’t change that.

I guess I will now go back to living in the basement of my mother’s home and lurk some more…..
I want the judges to do a measurement on this to see if this will make the books for one of the longest post ever?
