    Thatís just one of many. My response to those protecting the value of their garbage rods by saying they arenít making anymore is they donít need to make anymore.

    I wonder how true it is that they are melting them down. I wonder if they are just trolling American and European Collectors.

    Because of all kinds of laws they most likely can't sell them, for example there are trade embargoes against Russia so exporting them will be impossible.
    If you can't sell them and your not going to use them, they are basically scrap.
    What you see now in that clip is on a very big scale but in all contries that have strict gun control laws, historic weapons are thrown in to the furnace simply because that is what happens with weapons that can't be sold on the open market or privately owned in many cases?
    In Belgium we had a big confiscation several years ago after some lunatic murdered a toddler and an au pair; and as a result plenty of WW2 souvenirs were melted down. The K98k's you all like to collect were melted to make Belgium safer for the childern…..

    Yes EU countries are out of control. However for Russia to sell them to us it would only take the stroke of a pen by Trump for the bolt rifles and most pistols. Other pistols a win in Kisor v Wilkie SCOTUS case. Semi-Auto Rifles an act of Congress.

    Really it is a damn shame to see it but if Russia can't sell them what are they supposed to do with them. If these are warehouses full of weapons that means they have troops guarding these warehouses for almost 80 years. I did notice that some of the pistols don't look like they went through a Russian dip process. Hell the mg42 gpmg could be cut up for parts kits.

    Shame to scrap them, laws and situations changed as well as be massaged. Once destroyed they canít be brought back.
