Bingo.


Plus that AK didn't exist in 1980s.

90 degree port.


I hate when I find a mistake like that in a book. It destroys the credibility of the whole book.

The AK-74 has always had a 90 degree gas block, since it's been in production, AFAIK. His AK has wooden furniture. Probably an AKS-74.

The image is used to illustrate the concept, but the photo is not from the era or location described.

Poor contextual editing.

This is the AK-74 variant most often popularly identified by it's distinctive 45-degree gas block design, and the first examples of the new AK-74 rifle captured in Afghanistan and documented in Western publications were dated 1976 and 1977.

"This is the 90-degree gas block which was introduced into Russian AK-74 production in about 1977."

Afghanistan isn't part of the middle east.

But apparently part of the "greater middle east".
