AK-pattern rifles are special for a lot of reasons, they’re dead-nuts reliable, they’re inexpensive, they’re fantastically simple and they’re probably the most effective anti-Nazi gun that was never actually used against Nazis.

But they’re also special because they bridge the gap between modern fighting carbines and the wood-and-steel rifles of the first half of the 20th century.

With all the polymer carbon-fiber synthetic rubber-molded action operator modular tactical furniture out there, this is a nice reminder of what good time-tested wood brings to the table.
