Yes, those are Smurfs.

I hear that Mikhail Kalashnikov is jumping the next plane to Atlanta so he can go beat the crap out of that guy... :D

Actually the AK47 would be the perfect rifle for Smurfs, seeing as they were little blue communists and all..........

The last sticker on the buttstock looks like Marvin the Martian. And an AK would make one heckuva explosive space modulator.



Now, we're gonna wait for someone to prove me wrong by telling us the name of the Smurf character I am speaking of, and then we can all ridicule him for knowing the name of a Smurf character. Besides Gargamel, who was awesome.

Gargamel should get an M14 then so he blast their pinko little butts before they can even get 1/2 to being in range for using their AK.

Ha! I've actually met the owner of that rifle. He brought it to the range last month, and we had some fun tearing up paper with it. He himself admits that it isn't the finest paint job, but everybody seems to think that the AK is a rough, clublike excuse for a firearm anyway, so why are we suddenly getting upset that this one is blue and white? It still has that legendary AK reliability, and it's as accurate as an AK is supposed to be.

The paint job doesn't suit my taste, and it was flaking off in a couple of places. The aftermarket thumbhole stock had been roughly carved and sanded down to better fit the rifle's owner. Still, the thing went "bang" every time, and it threw the lead in the right direction.

The upshot of it all is that we got a female shooter who was not interested in long guns at all to try shooting it, and she had fun.

Not that the AK47 is an accurate rifle but I can't imagine a sling clipped onto the front sight tower would be good for accuracy.

spiroxlii,

The rifle's functional ability is not the issue here.
It's that baboon-butt ugly paint job that's the issue.

Of course, it's the owner's rifle and he can do with it as he pleases just as we can comment on it as we please. Glad to see you concur. :neener::D






-----------------------------------------------------------------------
And now, to address a side issue:


'The AK-47 is barely capable of practical accuracy.'
It's a "Spray and Pray" only kind of rifle.
From forum to forum I see this fallacy touted in one way or another as if it's some kind of gospel truth.
For all who may believe the AK is a "rough, clublike excuse for a firearm", (not necessarily you, spiroxlii. I realize you were just pointing it out.) the following link should shed some light on that issue.
I'd recommend everyone read this article so we can begin putting this urban legend to rest. Hopefully once and for all.

Actually, he is willing to sell it. Underneath all that paint, it's a Norinco. I don't remember what he's asking. I didn't really care, because I just purchased my Colt LE6920 AR/M4 and I am too poor to buy another gun right now.

Hi all. I just bought this rifle :what:

$320 for a MAK 90 these days is a good price. I took the rifle home and my kids and wife didn't believe it was a "real" rifle. I actually like that . . .

So in honor of the original owner and artist, I plan to keep the Smurf motif intact.

Smurf out . . .

spiroxlii
November 27, 2008, 10:55 PM
Whether the paint job is awesome or sad, it certainly evokes a reaction. A polarizing one. :)

At the end of the day, he got a Chinese AK for a decent price, and it does what it's supposed to do when you pull the trigger. The way it looks doesn't affect its function, and it's not exactly a historic firearm. Very few AKs are. It's one of the most mass-produced rifles in the world, and only early or rare examples are really worth preserving as "safe queens" in museum quality.

I'd never do this to an SKS or AK of my own, but that's purely a matter of taste. If my girlfriend wanted to get an AR, AK, SKS, or any other rifle in pink with flowers on it, I wouldn't hesitate to order the Duracoat for it.

Mike U.
November 27, 2008, 11:04 PM
Indeed. It is the owner's to do with as they so deem.
I'm glad another EBR is in use and not on the smelt pile.

Even though this one isn't exactly "E" or "B". :D
