This is an example of a very early pre-ban Clayco Sports AKS (AK47 type) fully automatic class III originally manufactured by the Ling Hua factory in China that has been professionally converted to a fully automatic machine gun. It has the late style stamped steel receiver, fixed hardwood stock, and hardwood handguards and pistol grip. It has the standard 16 inch barrel with a hooded front sight and an adjustable military tangent rear sight, graduated D-8 (100-800 meters). The left side is roll marked with "CLAYCO SPORTS/CLAY CENTER.KS" and "AKS SEMI-AUTO 7.62x39MM/LING HUA FACTORY MADE IN CHINA". Includes an unmarked drum magazine and three extra stick magazines.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 98% plus of the matte black finish with some scattered light handling marks and a few spots of light wear. The wood is very fine with some scattered minor dings and scratches. The disconnector does not consistently engage, producing full-auto function with both firing settings, otherwise mechanically excellent. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
