I know what & where the Khyber Pass is - but what's a "Kyhber Pass AK"..?

Saw that on NDS' website - what are they, precisely?

Basically its a marketing scam for alot of sellers.
What it means is the rifle is a mix of tons of different AK parts since at Kyhber pass they build firearms with whatever they can find and often cannibalize other weapons to make a new one most everything they put together is from different types of weapons so they call mixmasters/monsters kyhber pass firearms.

Thats my take on it anyhow.

AH so now we know where Century arm's overseas factory really is.
That explains all the FALs they built

Hello, the khyber pass repro's usually consist of the stamped style AKM that utilizes the AK-74 style triangle side folding stock. ;) NS

I think the Kyhber pass people actually have better quality control than century...

To be fair they have gotten better about getting AK rifles built. Now only 1 in 3 isa lemon.

From the photos I have seen on the net most seem like pretty ingenious adaptations. A part from here or there, and if they couldn't find a part they would cobble together what they needed to complete the rifle.

Check out this link to a post in "The AK forum".

Many good photos of these type rifles. I love the home made folding stock mechanisms!
