Handmade Kalashnikovs

    In our third episode about the handmade small arms from the gunsmiths of Darra Adam Khel in the FATA region of northwestern Pakistan, Miles takes a look at some of the Kalashnikov variants produced by these talented craftsmen. With the Kalashnikovs some of the copying begins to show because of the more modern production techniques that stamping involves. However even with this challenge, villagers are able to put together almost exact copies of these rifles.
