4V50,
You're right about that. My last duty station before I got out of the Marine Corps was at the American Embassy Conakry, Guinea (west Africa). Anyway at the local marche' a couple friends of mine (not Marines) got (2) Ak47's w/ (6) magazines for 50 Guinea frances. That's equivalent to about $45 US. I'm not sure what the actual nomenclature for them was but they were Chinese copies of the AK47 and were at about 50% condition but still fuctional. They didn't get them to bring back to the US but rather for insurance (since there's no police force in Guinea you're on your own)
