There is a guy on the filesforum who claims it was the germans who set up maadi factory 54. He says that maadi's are in fact german knock offs not russian. Can anyone give me an explanation with some substance besides "I heard" to clear this up a bit? Thats the first I have heard of it but I have never really seen a definitive source that says it was the ruskies.
...This is possibly due to the Fact that Egypt copied the Early Pattern Side Folding Stock from E. Germany. I would love to think that Maadi have a russian connection, but if it is east german....well, that would be cool also
