Correspondents of German channels in the markets in Iraqi Kurdistan (in the cities of Sulaymaniyah and Erbil) found in the free market a small weapon production of Germany, transmits RIA News Post Handelsblatt.


Media: in the Iraqi bazaars selling German weapons


“In the markets you can buy assault rifles of the G3 type and a Walther P1 pistol,” writes the newspaper with reference to the NDR television channel. “The cost of the 1986 rifle year of manufacture ranges from 1450 to 1800 dollars, and the gun is offered for 1200 dollars.”

Journalists have suggested that selling weapons of Kurdish soldiers forced a long delay in the money allowance.

“The weapons are most likely sold by soldiers of the Kurdish Peshmerga formation who have not been paid for several months,” the channel said.

The Bundeswehr confirmed that 20 thousand rifles and 8 thousand pistols were delivered to Kurdistan in 2014. The next delivery, according to the military, is scheduled for the 1 quarter of the current year.

"With such a large number of weapons in this difficultly controlled area, no one can guarantee full control," said the German department.

At the same time, the representative of the German Foreign Ministry, Schaefer, assured the journalists that "all cases of the transfer of weapons to third parties will be promptly and thoroughly checked."

    And then all these rifles will pop up sharply in Germany. And God forbid, if only in the market.

        A year has passed .... we read the following message "In German markets, weapons are sold from Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan," and oddly enough, we are not nearly surprised ...

      For Oriental Bazaar, this is not surprising.

      Well, that is a given . However, in my opinion, two points are noteworthy: First, look how quietly, but actively and fruitfully, the Germans are working with borzanists! Second -
      Journalists have suggested that selling weapons of Kurdish soldiers forced a long delay in the money allowance.

      “The weapons are most likely sold by soldiers of the Kurdish Peshmerga formation who have not been paid for several months,” the channel said.
      Borzani family campaign really played up. This sale is certainly not a critical indicator, but Barzani does not go to the next election and in fact behaves like Erdogan in Turkey - the family seized ALL key power structures and the oil business. If it weren’t for the war, it wasn’t a fact that Barzani would sit with his 26 billion on Forbes list in power in Iraqi Kurdistan. Yes, and with the help of the PKK and the successful development of the civil war in southeastern Turkey, he will definitely perform Kerensky in the Kurdish version.

      They will accuse the Russians - well, from Kalash Doychevsky (and there are some) they banged someone - that means Putin is to blame. Yes, there is a crowd of flags ready to confirm this. And for the bishops of the bishops - well, so manna went from heaven.

          In this case, it is Bulgarian and Romanian poppies, our handguards made of walnut (if from warehouses) either have a new plastic black, and here there is too light a tree like birch or what grows there in Romania, and the landing version that we have released in a limited series. I agree that simplicity and reliability is the trump card, although reliability due to steel and technological inconsistencies is much lower than the original. Plus, of course, the box store we have is not metal. The caliber is certainly notable, but it wasn’t fools in the eighties that weighed the pros and cons when they transferred by 5,45 for accuracy (namely, the accuracy of firing in bursts (why is he actually an assault rifle in fact) higher than that of the main opponent M-4), weight, both products and ammunition are absolutely important, and the AK-74 asks for it, unlike its ancestor, another thing now in the street battles of Syria is checking the AK-104 with a 7,62 more powerful cartridge, but with a shorter barrel it will recommend better, let's see. But now the most reliable, convenient and superior in accuracy to automatic shooting, the world's leading competitor, plus, taking into account the price-quality formula - this is the AK-74, there is no other way.

    in the free sale of small arms produced in Germany

    You might think that there is only German small arms and only in Iraqi Kurdistan. Maybe it's easier to think from where it appeared there? Germany also makes a feasible contribution to helping bandits of various groups throughout BV.

      An old grandmother with a gun gets in a taxi. The taxi driver asks in surprise: - Are you old and with a gun? - Yes, such a time, rape! - Who is old, will it rape !? Grandma charges the machine and winks to the taxi driver, “Yes, you will!”

          There is a grandmother in the forest, picking mushrooms / berries. Suddenly a man with a basket jumps out of the bushes. grandmother from surprise drops a basket and fearfully asks:
          - My dear, will you quietly rape?
          Then the man himself was numb and fearfully replied:
          - No.

    Are these the same G 3s that overheat and wedge during intense shooting? The pistols are good, but in the east they have always preferred the reliable Kalash! So it’s not surprising. Cheap, trouble-free Kalashnikovs - there are sufficient quantities, and beautiful German - to the market. East, Christmas tree sticks.

    This is definitely "we also have revolvers."
    In general, the wave is not understandable. There is a war in the country. Are there only German rifles in the market? No, I wasn't, but I'm sure. And Kalash in bulk. "Echo of War". I brought the price of the gun, thanks. Give the price for Kalash, we will think what to carry.

    You understand the East.
    They can be executed there for the loss of weapons and at the same time you can buy at least a tank in the bazaar. And the Germans are naive as children, supply weapons to motley gangs and hope that they will behave responsibly. The Americans over in Afghanistan have already bought the FIM-92 Stinger, realizing that they themselves may suffer from their weapons

      While they will check all this, the Germans themselves will be fully purchased with weapons in order to shoot migrants. I’m ready to go straight to Syria to get rid of this shit as soon as possible, to personally wet the terrorists in the outhouses, and they are selling weapons here. Get fucked up. For many, as I understand it, Syria is a big business. The Defense Ministry needs to put an end to this commercial activity.

    Pistols R-1 is R-38 Walter only with an aluminum frame explained that for the relief the Germans actually saved as a result, when shooting, the aluminum frame burst and the training firing from the pistols was reduced, and where they stopped altogether. Conclusions do it yourself weapons are dangerous to use assault rifles themselves recently read an article. The cartridge in the rifles for that area non-standard cartridges ran out here and they sell, and the Kalashnikov buy.
