Okay, I was in Barns and Noble today and while sipping on my esspresso I was thumbing through the military history section. I spot this hardbound long book entitled "Submachine Guns" that has a FN P90 on the cover.
As I flip through it I come to the section on the calico M-960. It saws, and I'm paraphrasing, "The Calico was promoted as a police and miltary arm but never became popular, except in Russia where it was soon copied."

So apperantly Russia is producig calico firearms? I was wondering if anyone had any info on this. I was wondering, depending on when this began, if there would be pre-ban magazines that could be imported. I knew that Russia was notorious for ripping off American products, but this took me by suprise.

Just wondering if anyone heard anything about this. Thanx

They copied the calico magazine for use on their Bizon SMGs (An AK varient in 9mm makarov... I think??)
