I want to a local gun shop today (yes, incredibly, we still have gunshops in the PRK), to pick up some 7.62X54R. I had been in two weeks prior, but they were out. Well, they are still out. Their supplier can't get any, either, because "everything is being shipped to Afganistan".

***??? Our forces aren't using it. Most of the Afganis are using AK-47s. So who is ordering BRAND-NEW Wolf and Barnaul 7.62X54R? And who is paying for it?

Wierd!! Damned if I know.

Maybe the Russians have organized some strange ''buy-back'' scheme!:p

I don't know - AIM has plenty of it and I bought 2 crates. :)

Strange... Outdoor America was out of Wolf 7.62x39 (FMJ, HP and SP) last time I went in there... I had to get 11 boxes of Sapsan instead. :confused:

If anyone is buying Wolf for military purposes i have a hard time believing that they are getting it from US distributers. It would probably be about 100 times cheaper to buy direct from Russia.

Additionally all of the local trips that fight for/with us in Iraq and Afganistan are using 7.62x39

Sounds like the local gunshop commando is pulling your bolt handle.

I heard the same from a gun shop in Alaska


"You got any cases of 7.62 X 39?"

"no, the because of the war we cant get any and will be about 230 of 1000 once we do":rolleyes: :uhoh: :fire: :what: :barf:

You never know what kind of op's might require going undercover with localized weapons.
