    The video is an interesting report about how Kalashnikov Group is rebranding itself in response to US sanctions. Prior to, domestic US customers made up the vast bulk of their sales, but they are now targeting militaries around the world to offset lost revenue. Of note is the diversity of US accessories in use on the guns shown at the Kalashnikov facility. The AK107 looks amazing too, having about as much recoil as a squirt gun.

    At one time 7.62X39 ammo was pretty cheap so SKS and AK47's seemed a good buy. Still pretty fair guns for most use.
