I Drank some Chinese Cool-Aid

Dove right into it. Of course I always told myself, that if I ever bought an AK, it would be one of the nice, "Made in China" ones.

Man, that thing is sweet. I love Chinese AK's. I have a Norinco Spiker. Looks like someone might have replaced the original pistol grip during its life. Chinese wood furniture is still available but it's getting harder to find by the day.

The Claycos were some of the first Chinese AKs to hit US soil. My dad bought one in the mid 80s. They were unique in the black/green phenolic furniture

Nice Chicom AK.
I have never seen a Clayco in person. The furniture is pretty cool.

I have several norincos dad bought back in the 80s. Thanks for the blog link. I’m going to pull them out and learn more about their specifics.

It’s funny since we have owned them since the mid 80s I have always kind of thought of them as generic Chinese’s AKs and never studied the details of the different importers and variations.

The FAL is not a "platform".
It is a lady-lookin' foreign made collection of sexy Belgian curves that intimidates the shit out of today's Pajama-boy males.

It's not an Assault Rifle, it a Sport Utility Rifle

Noice! If wanted an AK, I would look for one just like that but fixed stock.

That green is pretty rare, I think

You could probably sell and and buy two Norinco 56S

Cool rifle, man.
Too bad the average Chinese can not own and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Ahh, the joys of Communism.

I drank the Chi-Com cool-aid by the gallon in the early 90s. But this is a nice video on the one you just bought:
