    The “Khyber Pass” AK-Style rifle is composed of a mix of parts from random AK rifles and is usually referred to as a “Khyber Pass because, like Khyber guns, they are unlike any rifle produced by a factory or issued by a regular military force.The Khyber Pass gunsmiths first acquired examples of the various British service arms during nineteenth-century British military expeditions in the North-West-Frontier, which they used to make copies. Khyber Pass AK models were made famous through their use by Guerrilla fighters against the Soviets army during the Soviet-Afghan war in the 1980s.
