    Lol no need to apologize, thats simply the only time Ive ever heard them mentioned other than this thread. Its a great movie, old Clint(Eastwood) comes outside with his M1 and tells the slant eyed gooks to get the hell of his lawn. When the gang-banger types try to intimidate him, he proceeds to tell them about how he used their dead bodies as sandbags back during the war(sounds like your uncles perspective).

    The movie promotes anti-racism but I wont spoil the ending. Its a good flick if you like Clint movies.
    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

    I think I read that the Type 1 was issued, maybe on a limited basis, but they started having problems with the welds cracking and such, so they were withdrawn and the forged rec type was issued. 80,000 was mentioned, but nobody knows for sure how many were made, top secret info behind the iron curtain. "The Gun" by C.J. Chivers gives a good as it gets account. If you can get past the slightly anti gun rhetoric.

    There have been a few surface in the Pakistan area and Afghanistan I believe. And of course in the various Russian museums and Kalashnikov books published. A rare bird though. Very cool.

    Hey, if it's made out of metal, it can be replicated. Just depends on how bad you want it. Personally, I think that would be a cool project, and I hope someone does it.
