That is one pimped out AK.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

That is a sweet looking AK. If I owned it I would never fire it.
I wonder how much that despot paid to have it custom made.

Saddam always was a modest man known for simple tastes and understatement.
It looks like the gun from "lord of war", My buddy is building an AK to look like this, a little nickel plating goes a long way to a cool gun. He has already built one that is Nickeled in Chrome, with a gold trigger, he calls it "the Pimp Gun".
