someone posted recently about the phases we go through. I guess I'm in an old military rifle phase. Browsing the pdx gun show today, lo and behold, my eye caught sight of a Hakim nestled in on a table of woody milsurp heaven lol. And right next to the Hakim was a Rasheed. Hakim shoots 8mm mauser and the Rasheed 7.62x39. I had a Hakim once long ago, paid $100 or so for it. Today - $600. They are not that common. The Rasheed is $650, even rarer as only like 7,000 were imported. Both are Egyptian rifles. The Hakim a Swede design. The Rasheed a shrunken knock off of the Hakim - I guess more like an Egyptian version of an SKS. Anyway - walk down memory lane. If I had enough money guess I'd be collecting these things.
