I haven't posted here in a long time.
So this is a bit overdue.

Some of my 'pushki' and accessories for a GPW/WWII still life photo.
Image

And the same for a bit of a post-war.
I guess I could have thrown in there my AKS47 to give it a little more flavor. Next time I suppose.
Image

And specifically because Scar requested it, comparisons between my Caspian 1911 Hicapa comared to the TT-33.

If only I still had my KWA 1911A1 for comparison! That would have been much better than using a Hicapa in my opinion.

Neat-o!

I got to futz around with my lovely МОН-50 pair.
They do work. They don't seem stable enough for trip-wire use. I think they are more likely to get knocked over than detonated by tripping across a wire. So I have them currently programmed to work off of one remote. I don't have a bag meant for them but my СШМ40М bag does the trick. Tascabe never even replied to my queerie about МОН-50 bags :|

You think I is OK to leave them with batteries in?

I leave batteries in my one wireless mine without any issues.

MON-50 bags are stupid hard to come by.

Fresh from the mail, but better for the armory:

Image

LCT AKM Economy Version. It's going to become an East German MPi-KM-72.
LCT RPKS74 New Version. Stock is rock solid. I need to work on it to actually get it to fold.
LCT AKMS with Element PBS-1. Fucking ***.

Same order also included 2 spare gearboxes, one going in kitty's AKS74u, and one is my East Wind backup gearbox, so I don't need to bring two guns. I also have 10 LCT Magwell spacers. Not only will they speed reloads, but they help properly align the mag and the hop up's feed tube, so I shouldn't have to pull or push on the mag while shooting.

You have an RPK74N and an RPKS74 now?
Very nice.
Now you must make a custom made RPK74 autofeeding hicap. The one I have been talking about making for like 3 years.

I was curious to learn how those spacers actually work.

So far, I've noticed no change in the feeding of some of my more problematic guns. It's definitely a mag/hop up issue. The spacer does make reloading faster, in that one doesn't have to carefully line up the mag's lips to the front of the mag well.

Overall, I like 'em. They pop right in, and don't effect assembly/disassembly.

That Economy AKM I last posted has successfully become an MPi-KM-72:

Nope, but I've been doing a ton of work with Tascabe and Doorman on improving the East Germans. I pretty much kicked off their transition to Grenztruppen (Border Guards). That rifle will be a loaner in the armory in case someone's gun goes down.

Finally got to the point where I could consider my collection "mostly complete".  There's a few odds and ends, and a few good stand-in weapons, simply because no replica exists yet.

"Small Arms of The Soviet Army in Afghanistan" (Mostly, within reason...)

Image

Higher Res: http://bunkerseeds.com/images/TheFamily/Family.JPG

All of them are Airsoft or Inert Replicas.  All but the PKM work, unless it's an Inert Replica, in which case it doesn't work, lol.

Left to Right, Rear to Front, Biggest to Smallest (within reason, the AKMS has a GP-25 pad on it, but I didn't feel right placing it above the RPK's in terms of length).

ACM RPG-7
Real Sword SVD with BELomo POSP (correct 4x zoom and reticle though)
Mostly Real PKM (work in progress)
Inokatsu/LCT/Echo 1/Real Steel RPK74
LCT RPKS74
LCT AKMS with Element PBS-1
LCT AKS74 with Star GP-30 (Becoming a D-Boys GP-25 as soon as it arrives)
LCT AKS74
LCT AK74
ACM RPG-26 "East Wind Modded" to fire Nerf Footballs.
LCT AKS74u
KWC PM
MON-50 AP Mines (Working, Airsoft conversions)
Various Flares (Real, Spent, not Resin)
F1 Grenades (Resin)
RGD-5 Grenades (Resin)
PMN-2 Mine (Inert)
On top of 5.45x39 and 7.62x39 Ammo Crates, made in 1982 and 1977.
PFM-1 "Butterfly" Mines

Glaring holes/errors in the collection:

Accessories on the RPG-7.  This ACM Model doesn't accept my RPG-7 Scope, nor my RPG-7 Sling, nor my RPG-7 Covers.  It also doesn't accept 40mm grenades, and as such won't work with the East Wind custom warheads.  I'm working on pawning it locally and putting the money toward a Russian Mania Workshop one.

PKM.  Screw the A&K Potmetal ********.  It's mostly real, except for the barrel, gas return, and receiver.  Parts are on the way to get it up and running.  I am opting to use an M249 gearbox since I have some freedom in working with the trigger placement and I don't have to butcher the original pistol grip assembly.

RPKS74 needs a proper "PKM" style sling with pad.  A normal AK sling is too short to loop around the front sight, so I had to shrink the sling to wrap around the stock AKS74 style.

AKM, or lack thereof.  I do not have an AKM in my collection.  In fact, the AKMS is my only "7.62x39" chambered weapon in this series.  It's a lower priority for me.  It was a very early war weapon, also used by reserve units, and given to the Soviet-Friendly Afghan Military.  I'll get one eventually.

GP-30, never used during the Afghan war.  As mentioned, I've got a D-Boys GP-25 coming.  More era correct, and thanks to advances in manufacturing and airsoft technology, actually uses a gas shell that looks and works similar to the VOG-25.  Keeping my fingers crossed that they fit my VOG bandoleer.

Kinda wish I put the ammo boxes elsewhere, or didn't stack them, so you could see the folding stocks.

RPG-26, was not actually used in Afghanistan.  Nobody makes an RPG-18, RPG-22, or RPO replica readily available to the public yet.  I have seen some custom ones made out of inert tubes though, so there is hope!  So, not correct, but will have to do as a stand in.

Yeah, I know, the flares are not technically a weapon.  Bet you'll shoot someone's eye out though!

My collection does not have any special forces weapons , or heavy emplaced weapons.  Not in a hurry to stuff an NSV or DShK in my basement.  I do want, and hope KWC clones the Gletcher APS.  Those with SVD's, later on in the war, were often issued the APS as a reasonably good defensive pistol, with full auto capabilities.  Some ditched them to save weight, others did not.  Spetsnaz used stuff like special suppressed APS with a wire stock, a suppressed Makarov known as the PB, reports of the VSS Vintorez (with no photographic evidence) as well.  My collection places emphasis on the wide-spread use weapons of the Soviet Army.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my museum.  This has been a long time coming for me, and it was very nice to set this up and really stand back and go "holy ****, do you know how much beer this could have bought..."  ;D
