My history is a little fuzzy, but was Hungary even in Vietnam. J/K:D Just like the Tribute years back to the USMC, they did it on Norinco replica's of the 1897 shotguns:D Oh well.

Let me see an SA85M for $3500!! What are these dopes smoking.

Ridiculously overpriced, but beautiful none the less

Ridiculous price for an irrelevant "special edition". Hungarian SA-85Ms had no relevance to the Vietnam War, as the NVA and Viet Cong used Chinese and maybe some Russian AKs, since the SA-85M were a post-ban sporterised FEG AK (with a standard 5 rd mag) made for the US market and imported by KBI Inc in the 90's.

Even the woodland camo lined case is incorrect, since woodland camo was not adpoted by US forces until six years after the end of the Vietnam War. They should of at least used some ERDL or Tiger Stripe pattern camo, but I guess they couldn't find that by the yard in the fabric dept. at Walmart.

Limited Editions are only really worth anything, if they are commissioned or authorised by a famous artist, manufacturer or organisation who have the authority to commission such a special edition.

This "Tribute" rifle is as relevant to history as a Franklin Mint Faberge egg or any of the Liberian junk coins peddled by National Collector's Mint.

What I think is funny, is the fact the AK says "Vietnam War" on it. Vietnam was not a war, it was a conflict. It was one of twelve instances, the United States has engaged in extended military engagements that were explicitly authorized by Congress, short of a formal declaration of war.

I am not trying to down play the actions of anyone who served there, I am sure that it was Hell. We as a counrty never formally declared war in Vietnam.

So then what would it be? The Vietnam conflict?

Technically yes, it was a conflict.
