    This was a good thing to watch. Showed a part of the world that we are well insulated from. Just wish it was longer with a little more detail. Especially the reloading. Don't need no stinking Dillon, just a bunch of kids...

    Get rid of the Russian and China guns and problem solved. I thought these countries were our allies?Cut money to these countries for selling weapons.

    How do you get parts for these home made things? I guess you have to bring it back to the guy who made it, LOL.

    I saw this on TV, I forget where.

    At about 3/5 of the way through he handles an "American" gun. It's a Kuhner!

    I think I would be a little careful of the metallurgy that goes into those things. They're probably made from just about any kind of steel they can get and I doubt if they know much about hardening where required and their proofing probably consists of sending one of the kids out back to fire it a few times...voila,,,it passed.

    Ah, the old Muzzlelite design. Been wondering where to go on vacation next summer. Will need to tan up a bit.

    You just have to wonder what the death rate from accidental shootings is in a place like that. Not real big on gun safety are they.

    Hey GN7777777;

    Cool video! Reminds me of watching 60 Minutes back in the 80's when they did
    a bit on the Afghan freedom fighters against the Russians. Now, as then, the
    media presenter is a total boob when talking about firearms and even calls
    them evil. Friggin' Liberals look good in a scope don't they?

    If you want accurate, action packed reporting on weopons and conflicts send In
    Robert K Brown and crew. Team SOF gets it done right.


    Happy Blastin'

    They make no guns.Cobble together and cannibalize parts,yes,"gunsmithing"? yes.
    Notice any heavy machinery? machinists? stamping dies? dont count the guys on the buffing wheels,it takes alot more than an old drill press running on camel piss to make a working multi shot firearm from barstock.

    I watched a show similar to this years ago, it had to be the same place.. what stood out in my head the most was a kid running a old bridgeport type mill that was on the sidewalk, not even in a building, he was milling pistol blanks..chips flying everywhere and of course.. no shoes and no safety glasses.. they followed the blank from the mill to a guy who heat treated it in a forge back to the mill and then to another rat hole shop where it was finished..
