Nice picture. Looks like a blank firing adapter on the AK.
Looking forward to the pics you took on your trip.

I am not sure if this is a published picture or not, but I took this photo of a photo that was on a wall in Krasnoyarsk University, Siberia, Russia recently on my wife and my vacation.

I love this pic - it's my new desktop image. I just wonder how many PU 91/30's are STILL in Russian military inventory!!!???
not many at all..they do get used occasionally for longer range jobs and in local conflicts by the paramilitary, but almost everywhere they've been replaced by the SVD

BTW: the picture seems to date back to the early 1980s when the 7.62x39 AKM (pictured) was still in service before being replaced by the 5.45mm AK-74

I don't think the picture is that old - given that the soldiers are wearing camoflage, not common at all (IMHO) in Russia until early/mid 90's

the brass catcher looks like those fitted to the AK ports on BMP 1&2 armoured vehicles

great pic

regards
