Default AK's & Vz58's around the world giant pic thread

(This will not be just one post; I have many many pics and I will post them with a new entry as I have time).



















On a sad note, the fellow in this photo is Karl Linn. He was KIA in 2005:

Romanian army (looks like a GI with them, too).



The rest are from Iraq. Iraq is by far the largest source for pics.
Thanks to Defenselink.mil, for posting a lot of high quality pics that are in the public domain (no copyright issues).

AN-94 Nikonov...the weapon that was supposed to replace the AK.


More weapons familiarization in Mongolia



A tourist in Phnom Penh, where they now have a shooting range for tourists.
Yes, the world has changed that much.
Note the ribbed receiver cover and the AKM bolt carrier.


Vietnam


GI fires Dragunov at a range
I'm noting a lack of curvature in the mag...
Could it be a .308 Dragunov?
Doesn't the Dragunov have a slight curvature to the mag?


Afghanistan


A milled AK in Afghanistan.
Note the buttstock is missing.

Iraq.

This is one of my favorites.
Note how this Iraqi has laid the parts from his AK directly on the ground.
No protective sheet on the ground to keep them clean...
No attempt even to keep them out of the sand...
And he doesn't seem the least bit worried about it.
THAT's an AK!












Iraqi policemen








Room clearing exercise

I wasn't going to post pics just "from somebody's blog", but this one is cool so I made an exception.


All right, ONE Steyr AUG photo.
Aussies in Iraq


Nigerian soldier


A Turkish recon marine


Soviet soldier


Afghan with AKM/grenade launcher


These came from a foreign language blog.
I THINK they are Poles.
I haven't had time to look at them closely.
I hope they're not Airsoft. :grin:




Iraqis with Chicom AK's


A GI in Iraq holding a milled AK with a Romanian AKM foregrip

This set of pics came from various websites.
They weren't labeled all that well as to country represented.
I think most are from the Balkans, with maybe some Russians.
