SKS in Yemen
« on: November 02, 2023, 12:55:40 PM »
Someone posted a no watermark version of the first photo on Facebook without comment this morning so that sent me on a search to figure out where it was taken. Having determined the picture was taken in Yemen, I slipped further down the rabbit hole  rofl























Blued bayonets













45 degree gas block

Nice Photos, did you notice in the second pic, the first and third cadet in the row don't have the gas tubes in place. Totally missing, LOL.
My Avatar is a pic of the real "Ghost" SKS in honor of xxxsks(joe). It is a pic of a fully decked out SKS in Capco hunter's kit. This was mine, the only other pic I had ever seen of one was Joe's.
