Just found this site--good job on the photos. I served a tour in Bosnia as a weapons storage site inspector, and it's really great to see these old weapons still generate interest. Since I redeployed, I collect them, currently have a M59/66, M48A, M24/47, AK built on M70AB2 parts kit, and M57, M88, M70 pistols. Also have an M59 SUB-gun parts kit, that I would love to figure out how to build a non-gun replica of. Thanks for the informative site.
