Thousands of StG-44 assault rifles found in Syria (video)



The receivers couldn't be imported to the US, but the rest of the parts would still be worth a small fortune.

1. I'm sure the Skinheads are Wanking over this.

Ammunition is hard to find, though.

3. This quote from Wikipedia might explain why Syria has them:

"After World War II, the Soviet Union and other Eastern Bloc states supplied client regimes and guerrilla movements with captured German arms such as the StG 44 along with newly manufactured or repackaged 7.92x33mm ammunition. French forces discovered many in Algeria and determined the origin to be from Czechoslovakia. Examples also found their way into the hands of the Vietcong during the Vietnam War, and the PLO.[27] It is still used in very limited numbers by militia forces in the Middle East[28] as well as some countries in the Horn of Africa. StG 44s have been confiscated from militia groups by U.S. forces in Iraq."

Anyone know if the ammo is still being manufactured?
