This AK is pretty special. It was captured from a PAVN soldier in VN at some point, then presented to an Army officer by an ARVN officer and brought home. It was then found many years later in an old home some one bought.
The rest of the story is that it was found in the home, the ATF was called and they supposedly took it to a local gunsmith who demilled it for them. The home owner then sold the demilled AK to a Vietnam war collector.
I don’t believe that story myself. There is no way in hell the ATF would be so reasonable. It would have gone right to the blow torch or whatever corrupt Gov agencies with no common sense uses to destroy inanimate objects the King decides is too evil.
Anyone know Hawkins or his family?
Regardless, that is a pretty cool piece of history.
