US Navy Intercepts 1,400 AKs in the Arabian Sea
« on: January 04, 2022, 03:42:25 PM »
"On December 22, the US Navy reported that two days earlier it had intercepted a fishing vessel attempting to smuggle weapons through the Arabian Sea. On board, Coast Guard and Navy personnel found 226,600 rounds of ammunition and 1,400 AK-pattern assault rifles. While the vessel was stateless, the five men comprising the crew identified themselves as Yemeni."

Happy to take a few of those spam cans off of their hands. Low resolution photo, but I'm guessing Chinese AKs based on color and the tendency of the Chinese to sell to anyone.

Wonder if we'll see these up for auction in one of those DOD auction sites, LOL.

Just being Chinese is pretty much enough, besides they could sell them to some other little nation/group/cartel and create a reason to do something and make money.  chuckles1

If you find a Mosin in the bunch give it to RM, then he can't say he doesn't have one and it will start him down the dark path of Mosinitis. rofl rofl

Many a Christmas has passed and I have considered just sending him one wrapped in a red bow and a copy of my C&R, just out of the wholesome goodness of my heart. The whole Christmas spirit thingy, do something nice for someone else for once.. Poor little fella should at least have one of the iron curtain thumpers in his collection as well.  :)

Hey Bro, I would never turn my nose up at one of those if you had a mind to send me one. I would enjoy it forever and ever. 8) rofl rofl thumb1

Seriously though, I think you should send one to RM, that would be hilarious.

Laugh, I was seriously worried that might happen back when the black Friday sub $100 M91/30 deals from Classic happened way back in '14.  Thankfully none ever did and now they are high dollar collectors items!

Can anyone tell what it is that's sitting to the right of the AK's? Almost looks like rifle grenades but I don't know why they'd be without the protective tubes? I can't tell for sure that that's what they are though. Anybody else have a WAG?

Yeah, they can drop all those tins of ammo off at my front door, no problem! Promise I'll dispose of them properly!  thumb1  chuckles1
