    Default Iraqi Kalashnikov

    Hi everyone, I have been making a collection of items bought back from the Iraq wars (1991 and 2003) and was pleased to get this deactivated AKM rifle today. It is a Romanian AIM which has been marked with an Iraqi jeem underneath the date (a triangular mark) to show it is Iraqi military property. Shown here with a variety of other Iraqi bring back items. Any comments welcome, Doug

    Hello, yes indeed Yugoslavian sight and gasmask, I dont know the origin of the magazines, they are the one thing that is not known to come from Iraq.

    Hi James, thanks for that. The magazine is entirely plastic apart from only a metal base plate and spring. I am very keen on these modern war souveneers because in most cases I have bought them from the people who souvenired them and so its possible to record some history with them. Also they are often quiet cheap!
