Some odds and sods.

I'm cleaning out my hard drive before I go on vacation for a couple of weeks in August, so here are some leftovers.

Afghanistan


Somewhere in Africa



From Flickr...a photo of some AK's taken by a tourist in Albania


Polish Beryls




Greek Cypriot army


Iraq


Israel


Kashmir

Hope your weapons never get this bad a "battlefield pickup" look.
Note one gas tube appears to have been eaten all the way through by corrosion. There is also evidence of extensive pitting to at least one of the AK's that has been covered up by a fresh coat of paint.


Russian



Sudan


Uganda


Mikhail Kalashnikov with a Spetsnaz team and some American friends


The Man, the Legend
