Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Kalashnikov shows off early AK-47 prototype with unique features (PHOTOS)


Built in 1948 before full-scale mass production of Mikhail Kalashnikov’s famous rifle took off, the early prototype has a number of differences from later Soviet-made guns.


"In the collection of the Russian state-run Kalashnikov Concern, the well-used vintage AK is one of a short run of 1,500 rifles made during the time of the Berlin Airlift. Using a stamped rather than milled receiver, the select-fire underfolder used a different trigger, has a hollow cylindrical charging handle and a short muzzle break"

One of only 1,500 produced. I am pretty sure Kalashnikov wanted to use the stamped receiver to save weight and cost but the next 10 yrs. saw the milled AKs.??

The rifle was designed from the start to have a milled receiver but Soviet industry wasn't up to the task.
