That's almost exactly what I was going to post. But what still doesn't make sense to me is that Russia is quickly becoming the largest EXPORTER of small arms in the world. With that being the case all of the AKs must be going somewhere else besides here. It's a shame that G.W.B. allowed the ATF to come up with the BS no importing of barrels or else maybe we'd still be seeing quite a few cheaper AK variants.
