7,9x57 charger "ak 40"

I went to the big Allentown gun show. First, I had to wait outside with a bunch of mean looking people (probably gang members) for the doors to open. But I survived, and I found this “ak” stamped charger. I have not seen ak chargers before, ammo yes, chargers no. AK like from Poland? Is it common?

Spooky! The one to the left must be the head of that gang no? :sunglasses:

No, the head of the gang must be the one on the right with the checkered shirt. I was going to lunch with him (Danny Dietz) and Dick Manos (RIP) at least once back when the show that is now SLICS was the Chicagoland Show, held in Eastbrook, Ill. Maybe even before that, when the show was in Mundelein (maybe spelled “Mundalein,” or some other way), Illinois.

Good memories.

Quite correct, I was running out of the house on an errand and my brain left before me.

Hmmm… I would think the bearded guy was the head guy.
