Illegal firearms seized from criminal hands worldwide come in an immense variety of shapes… and looks!. This AMD-65, the Hungarian variant of the AK family, was recently taken from drug traffickers by Rio de Janeiro Military Police’s GETEM (a motorcycle tactical patrol unit of the BPChq, the Shock Police Battalion), calling the attention not only for its unusual origin but also for its colorful external wrapping.

This AMD-65 was also recently captured in Brazil, this time by BOPE (Special Police Operations Battalion) ….

Thanks Ronaldo.

    It looks like something out of CHAPPiE by Neill Blomkamp.

    Not for nothing, but that's pretty good. Sometimes the idea of camo isn't to blend in to the surrounding its just to make something look like what it isn't. Passing over it quickly enough details get lost so that it doesn't scream GUN right away.

    For what I imagine Brazil to look like, maybe it's a smart choice :)
