For various work purposes, I've spent large chunks of the past year around functioning AKs. The only thing I know about them is how to turn the safety catch/fire lever onto 'non-random-accidental-death', something that has saved a number of cameramen's lives so far, in a trigger-happy,bumpy SUV, hashish-infused environment. Essentially, I think my lifespan might be slightly expanded by the ability to a) strip b) clean c) fire an AKM in a difficult, sandy/muddy environment. I wouldn't post this if it hasn't have become an issue already. (i very quickly learned how to use an FN on semi-auto for pant-wettingly scary defensive suppressive fire, but that's another story). Wot i want is: a deact, dry-firing AK at a reasonable price. Not to current welded specs, but earlier ah-so-that's-how-it-works specs, so I can clean, strip, oil and reassemble to a degree I'd feel comfortable with for future assignments in unstable durka-durka countries. I'd be happy negotiating down from <£500. I don't yet have a licence . Over to youse.
