Drew, Not every white lady in Htfd. is monied. Now West Htfd.? Ah. Another thing. But Hartford is quite a mix. Or used to be. Parts that used to be white and well maintained have been taken over by a favored minority and where once everything was open down at the end of Pembroke Street, all the houses have these thick wire fences. What an eyesore my former street is today. Yuk. Used to be middle class, not sure what to call it now.

Actually I was kidding about the racism thing, but a post on an obscure firearm would have been pretty boring. Even the cartridge it used, which is still manufactured, would be pretty dull.
On the other hand, learning that these rifles are still in use around the world, and that the rebels in Syria are now armed with over 5000 of them is quite interesting.

The 124 grain bullet at 2250 feet per second makes it only slightly less powerful than the 7.62x39 AK-47 round, though the bullet will lose energy a bit faster due to it’s lower aerodynamic efficiency (BC is less because equal weight bullet is 0.3mm larger in diameter).
Looking at the Wiki page it seems pretty obvious where Mr Kalishnikov got his inspiration from. Typical Russian hack stole an idea and claimed it as his own, most Likely if truth were known.
