From "The Survivors", 1983. I'm curious now, and trying to figure out what the heck it is!

Ignore what he says, it's pure script.

But the AK seems to have an enclosed front sight, so I'd call it Chinese. Other than that, I've never seen that sort of folding stock before, and it's got a black plastic sporter type handguard.

Something real? Or a hacked-up prop job?

I'm 99% sure that is a Valmet.

Valmets are Finnish AKs and some people consider them one of the best (the real ones), though that stock is ugly.

Yup! That's it. Stock and handguard match exactly on a freezeframe.

Thanks! :)

LOL!!! I know that scene is supposed to make fun of gun owners (it is Robin Bird Brain Williams) presenting them as loony's....but that was just too funny with that guy getting all excited and talking real fast showing off all those articles in the box. The look on her face the whole time was even funnier

Nice rifle, too bad they are so expensive.

That has to be the ugliest and most un-ergonomic grip and stock I've ever seen on any AK, though.
