Now when it came to choosing A Kalashnikov weapons platform.I really had to think.If I were living in Equestria.I wouldn't want a garden variety AK.Also since I would be married to Rainbow Dash.I would want her to think that the rifle I buy would be as she puts it"20% Cooler"So.After debating various rifles made in countries outside The Soviet Block,such as The Galil.As well as The earlier Valmet Rifles.This one made in Finland has alot of fantastic features,such as more user friendly sights.A side folding stock.An enlarged trigger guard fir use with gloved hands in snowy conditions.Which for me would come in handy if I had to go with Twilight and the others to The Crystal Empire.Everypony remembers what nearly happened when King Sombra tried to make his BIG COMBACK right??So ayway.This would be the Kalashnikov type rifle I would want.
