Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention?

Necessity is supposed to be the mother of invention. I'm sure that was the case when it comes to the AK-47 shown below. Not only does it use a guitar strap for a sling but it has a rather unique buttstock to say the least.

This picture is from a post on The AK Forum which was seeking unique examples of AKs for a calendar. I believe the poster called this the Poppy Farmer Special. There are a lot of other nice examples but none so unique as the one above.


  1. Probably so he can cut a trench for poppy seed planting and protect the field at the same time. Bayonets are more than likely easier to find than shovels.

    Maybe a new take on beating "swords into plowshares"?

  3. Does he have a shovel blade for the bayonet lug?

  4. Does anyone make a "sharpshooter" spade that fits a bayonet lug?
