    Here's an AK you won't see down at your local gun store.

    Saddam Husseins golden gun given to museum: a gold-plated assault rifle, once carried by one of the late
    Saddam's palace guards, will go on display at the Australian War Memorial.

    Hmmm

    That is an eyesore IMO but I am a purist... I wonder who got his sons gold plated Dragunov?

    Waste of an AK, but what would you expect from Sadaam.

    Wonder if it has homeboy sights on the side of the receiver (gold bling of course)?

    Test, test and retest is the motto of any webpage designer. Sorry, I shoulda tested that story link. It's fixed now.

    Thanks for pointing that out, matt13. I saw an extra "h" while I was posting it, but didn't see where it belonged.

    While I'm on the topic of AK's, I asked about .308's at my local gun store and they have a Saiga AK-clone in .308 coming in in a day or two for $330. I seem to recall one or more of you Steyroids with a Saiga or two. Are they good shooters? And is $330 a fair price? Sounds like a good buy to me, but I'm 6' 3" and got long arms. I'm wondering if a short, stubby AK stock will be comfortable to shoot, especially with a scope, which is how I want to use it.

    And it sure ain't gold-plated!

    All advice appreciated.

    :mrgreen:

    Ok, I think that AK is bitchin'! I have a weakness for gold plated gagets, like the gold iPod, though I have the sense to never buy them. At least Saddam didn't add diamonds too.

    Bling bling! Bang bang!
