A reader emailed in this photo he found on internet of an AK purportedly modified to a pistol configuration. Do you think this is real or fake? My money is on fake. UPDATE: It appears to be real! See the comments below. [ Many thanks to Dave for emailing in the photo. ]

How Sebastian became a gunnie

Sebastian blogs on how he became a gunnie … A few months later he informed me there was a sale on Romanian AK-47 clones on sale at a local gun store near him. I was surprised this was legal, since I was aware of the Assault Weapons Ban, so I started researching, [Read More…]

Radom Model 96 Beryl in .22 LR
