Got to get myself some contraband Cuban 7.62X39.

Russia to open ammunition plant in Cuba:

Russia plans to build a factory in Cuba to make ammunition for AK-47 assault rifles, Federal Agency for Military and Technical Cooperation director Konstantin Biriulin said Thursday.

"The components were taken to Cuba a few years ago. Now, it is just a matter of taking them out of the crates and getting production underway," Biriulin said.

The Russian official, however, did not say when the plant would be finished or what its production would be.

Probably. It might even be cheaper for them to have it manufactured in Cuba and shipped to Russia. They're hardly worried about quality.
