Iraqi Tabuk AKM Type II

Postby Mr. B. » Tue Dec 22, 2015 9:10 pm

This is an AKM Type II (6X4) bayonet and scabbard manufactured in Iraq and known as a Tabuk. They were built on equipment supplied by the Zastava Arsenal in Yugoslavia and are very close copies to the ones made there. The main differences are the color and different mold marks. M.

Differences in colouring...pics from my files, and taken from the 'net so as always if anyone has any problem with them, just let me know.

Here is another one of my Tabuks. This one is like new, un-numbered and appears unissued. Note the differences from the first one. Visible rivets on the cross guard and the cutter plate weld ground smooth, etc.. Also the different snap hooks on the hangers. M.

I finally got my self one of these Tabuks. I think its one of the most cool and interesting variations of the 6x4 bakelite design, and this one came with a framed memorandum that explains the location of where it was found.
I think the tabuk is generally hard to obtain here in Europe.
