    Default Elysium AK

    Went to see World War Z last night and in the trailer for the new Matt Damon sci-fi flick "Elysium" his charactor is shown firing an AK. I can beleive Ak's will still be around in 2154. Ol' Matt sure does alot of shoot 'um up flicks to be such an Obammy fanboy.

    Never heard of Matt Damon? Is that the Tampa Sunshine Skyway bridge in the background? Sometimes I think I'm the only person in the U.S.A that does not own some of them gloves with no fingers. I see them on every kind of TV show there is. Where do all of the cut off glove fingers go to???
    Maybe being stockplied for the next fad..............Wearing just the finger parts without the rest of the glove?? Heh...Heh

    Why not? Rifle design has pretty much been static for half a century so far. It might not be a "real" Kalashnikov, but I expect firearms on that pattern will be around a long, long time.

    The Dreyse "bolt action" design is around 150 years old now, and I don't expect bolt-action rifles to vanish in the next 50 years. Samuel Colt's "revolving pistol" concept has been declared obsolete for decades now, but people still make and buy those, too - it's over 175 years old now.

    You can bet that the 1911 & Ma Deuce will still be going strong also.

    IMFDB for Elysium (2013)


    Buttstock and lower handguard look Egyptian, haven't found a good pic of the grip to see what color it is. Maybe a gun from the 1984 version of Red Dawn?

    looks like a rommie to me with some faked up hollyweird BS tacked on.

    probably some kind of "rainbow" fashion statement.

    those gloves do look gay--they just suit mat damon though . does that mean he is the woman in the gay couple or what???

    i'm just don't know squat about the new gay/PC holly-weird culture club-- but hey their in charge now--so they must know what their doing right?--LOL!

    Don't know what a "rommie" is (Romy?) but the grain of the buttstock sure looks Egyptian. As a side note, it's a full-auto version, 3rd pin above the mag release in this pic:

    Looking closer at the IMFDB pics, it appears there are/were two different AK's used for that scene.

    start lookin' at the wear spots, labeling on the mag release etc:
