It is absolutely amazing what can be made with some low tech machinery, raw materials and years of experience. Having built a few AKs of my own, I know first hand the difficulty of building a gun from a parts kit. However taking metal, wood, and now apparently polymer, and making a functioning pistol is true craftsmanship. YouTube user ‘ABKTheReal’ uploaded a series of short videos from the Tribal Region of Pakistan that includes a polymer Khyber Pass Sig P320 or P250.
Unfortunately, we don’t get a great view of the pistol, but ABK did provide some insight about the gun’s origins. Obviously, AKs are also available as well.
Khyber AKs go for a minimum of 12-14K PKR ($120-$140 USD). The pistols go for 18K PKR minimum ($180 USD). The gunsmiths tell me that the polymers came fro Dara or from China. Dara does make a tonne of polymer products there days and they are pretty good quality. I am guessing that the polymers come from China and they just mold whatever they want with them.
