EXEMPLARY UNDERFOLDER POLYTECH AKS223 MG.
The ultimate in 1980s gun culture were the Chinese mfg. AK47 variants that were once so plentiful & inexpensive. The highest quality & most sought after variants were mfg. by Polytech & imported in numerous configurations. As their popularity increased in the United States w/ shooters & collectors & the availability of the once rare 7.62x39mm ammunition became available, we were faced w/ the first of numerous pieces of legislation dealing w/ the propaganda push of the day & firearms w/ similar attributes were branded “assault weapons” & eventually heavily restricted. Of course the full autos were already heavily under attack & their mfg. ceased on May 19, 1986. One of the first new restrictions regarding the semi automatic versions to go into effect was mandated by executive order w/out legislative involvement & banned the importation of guns that didn’t qualify as having a sporting purpose. One of the most noticeable & popular functional features is the bottom folding metal stock that was designed to completely fold over & around a loaded 30 rd. mag.
This particular example is a textbook piece w/ its light brown hardwood furniture, still in factory packaging as it left China. Stamped receiver. Hooded front sight post & rear sight adj. in elevation to 800m. Safety selector on right side of receiver. Complete w/ its bayonet, scabbard, threaded bbl. & slanted muzzle brake.
