Ewbank custom Shorty AK47 pistols

    Last week I asked if a photo of an AK-turned-pistol was real. Apparently it was. A company called Ewbank Manufacturing, of Winslow, AZ, manufacturer a variety of bizarre AK-pistols.

    The pistols include many custom made, and tuned, parts to ensure the gun will function. The barrel is so short that when a cartridge is chambered, the bullet will extend almost as far as the gas port. Firing these guns must be an experience!
