A classic Russian-made camera support

RPD seems so worthless as a light machine gun due to heavy recoil, it might actually be more useful as an improvised camera support. How the guy who designed lightly recoiling DP27 in 7.62x54R managed to make a 7.62×39 weapon … Continue reading

Minimal upgrades for a Romanian AK

Friends just dragged in this curious collection of parts. I am puzzled by seemingly ratty weapons being used by very competent people. Light mount is in evidence under the barrel. Somehow, they managed to graft an A2 flash hider onto … Continue reading
