Hard Times Armory converted AKS 74 machine gun with folding stock. Often and rightfully identified as the most produced and widespread machine gun design the AK-47 and its descendant models function well in even the most adverse conditions, and shoot even after left submerged in mud. Prior to May 1986, one could purchase a semi-auto version and send it to a capable machine gun manufacturer to be converted to, and registered as a fully transferable to individuals machine gun. This cataloger recalls very clearly bringing a very nice semi-auto to the local gun store where the owner promptly purchased it and sent of off for conversion, return, and subsequent sale to another customer as a machine gun.
