Curious. I see a lot of guys are interested in the old A-1. I was not around when they came out, Uncle Sugar had other plans for me.
Were they available on the civilian market in semi auto only of course? Hell maybe even full auto, pre 68 would have been pre ban, with they tax stamp, yes, no.????
Want to see the old ones still going strong. My God go too the Orient. Thai Military is still using them to great effect to shoot Cambodians trying to sneak across their border. Unlike, America, I like their style. They just shoot the illegals trying to sneak in, I like the Thais..
Their also all over Mexico, I would guess, left over from when the C.I.A. was shipping them south,
for whoever they did not like at the time?
On the border in Thailand, few years back at a crossing check point.. Damn every Thai Soldier had the old A-1..
Going on 50 years and still ticking.. Says something for them..
My failed attempt at importing, good God I could have gave every member one for free.
