We posted about the weapons of The Walking Dead a while back which showcased the prop guns and blades used on set.

Admit it, if you’re a Mosin Nagant owner your ceiling has a few holes in it. I feel you, I didn’t realize just how long the Mosin Nagant Rifle was with the bayonet attached when I first got mine and accidentally poked a hole (or two) that the wife has yet to notice. This guy does a little worse, like a $3400 TV kind of worse. Watch out kids, you might poke an eye out!
Thanks to Greg for emailing me the video.

Venezuela recently entered a deal giving them the license to produce the current AK-103 rifle. Venezuela currently is the largest user of the Russian AK-103 rifle with around 100,000 rifles being used by all branches of their military.
The AK-103 rifle is pretty much the improved AK-74 but chambered in 7.62x39mm used by the AK-47. To help cut cost Venezuela was able to obtain a license to produce AK-103s locally three years ago. The deal was recently finalized and Venezuela will start importing the machinery to allow them to manufacture officially licensed AK-103s with production expected to start in 2012. Around 50,000 AK-103 rifles are expected to be built a year, with Russia getting a small cut of each rifle made.
