Anyone familiar with the above weapon? The wire stock looks to be East German.

I already found the date of import stamp. It is '85. It isn't an underfolding stock, it is a wire side-folder. This weapon has a bayonet lug and the AKM screw on slanted muzzle attachment. The barrel is threaded of course for the attachment and has the spring-loaded retaining pin for the muzzle attachment.

I know what the importing company claims. I just don't believe them.

Only about a dozen or so Maadi's were imported w/ folding stocks, they were fitted w/ Egyptian made copies of the East German first pattern side folders like the one in the pic above. They were imported by (?), I've never confirmed who but I know they weren't Steyr imports.

BTW, pvtstout, could you provide me with pics of the markings on the rifle? I am very interested in taking a look as the date stamp, you stated above that it's stamped "85", this is about when the folding stock versions were imported. Thanks...

Jeepcreep...No, that is not the stock. I've seen those photos before.

Kollector...Email and photo sent.

That could very well be. It still doesn't explain the the bayonet lug and screw-on divertor. They are not after-market.
