If I were there, and I had a fed-ex office nearby, lets just say I would be paying a lot of $'s in shipping costs!

Wow, you can see greasegun receivers and everything in those piles.

It even looks like there are slabside AK mags thrown in.

I wonder how that M79 stock survived and got all white colored like that?

During an adventure while in my misspent 'Ute.....I picked up an AK that the owner no longer needed....it was so rusted and moldy that it had a "Fuzz" all over. I tied it in a tree fork with 550 cord, tied a slip knot on the trigger and on the end of a long hunk......pulled on said cord from a safe distance.....whacka-whacka-whacka.....truely impressive.

Well that's just depressing.

Ok, I just got all choked up looking at the fields of magazines and the pile of Thompsons.

Someone should be beat with one of those rusty rpg tubes for letting all that happen. Talk about a mass grave. Im going to go hug my rifles now. bye.

This is where a pile of our mommy and daddys' tax dollars ended up after 1975.It seems to me a "field of dreams"that has turned to shit.At least those relics killed some socialist,peace loving,Democrats in SOUTH Vietnam.Lots of history here.

I'm getting cold chills going down my back...how sad [>(]

Having said that i do have a question:
Why the hell do they call them "Mini-guns"?!?!?
I've seen one, and there is NOTHING mini about them!
Same thing with semi-trucks, but thats just getting too off-topic

What would German Kar89's be doing in Vietnam?



Hmmmmmm?

Anyon­e have any ideas?

The Vietnamese sell ex US guns on the global market- Allot of them make it to the commercial market as well.

I know here in Germany they have sold M14s that came via Vietnam, and I have seen some dewatted M-16s that came via there also.

You can also find some gun brokers in England that sell guns from Vietnam. Miniguns, M60s, M79s, you name it.

A lot of WW2 era weapons found there way into Vietnam through various sales by various countries immediately after the war.

If you read a lot of Vietnam stories, you will find that US troops captured some amazing things from the VC and NVA.

MG34s and 42s, Mausers, even MP40s turned up.

If you watch "We Were Soldiers" you will notice that they went the extra step towards realism and have a few such weapons in the movie. Near the end when they are going to break through to the NVA HQ, you can see the NVA troops getting ready behind an MG34 and a few other WW2 MGs.

I remember seeing a article w/ pictures of French Foreign Legion soldiers in Vietnam in the early days of the conflict ( 1950's ) They had a suprising number of German WW2 weapons, including mp38/40's, 98k's, etc.

Actually, there were quite a few German soldiers in Vietnam right after WWII, working for the French. The Russians contributed quite a few German weapons captured in WWII as well.

It's a scaled down version of the General Electric M61A1 Vulcan 20mm cannon used on aircraft.
