Finally got a shot of this real sword type 56-2.
Build quality is top notch and its got a nice heft to it.
Currently fitted with a genuine Israeli IWEAPON AK rail kit, genuine Magpul RVG grip and a few other replica bits.
Three images taken with a Canon 500D with stock kit lens.
Real Steel info:
The Type 56 assault rifle is a Chinese copy of the Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifle, which has been manufactured since 1956. It was produced by State Factory 66 from 1956-73, then by Norinco from 1973 onwards.
The Type 56 is likely the most widely proliferated AK-47 type rifle in the world having shown up on battlefields in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, South America, etc. While exact production figures are not known, it is commonly estimated that as many as 10-15 million Type 56 rifles have been produced since the 1950s which means they may account for nearly one-fifth of the world's AK production.
