    I don't know the official reason, but most comprehensive explanation I ever got was that they were considered too expensive for the little benefit that they offered.

    The Vector type are called R4, R5, etc and I need one. A valmet M76 folder would do nicely, though.

    On my AKs, when the selector is in "safe", the lever covers the slot behind the ejection port. The selector lever doubles as a dust cover and bolt travel limiter.

    Nope. That's an M62.
    Check this site for newer models.

    BTW, never saw those metallic magazines during my service, only plastic ones were used.

    Ah, yes, that is an M62, my bad... but M76 uses the same stock (unless you count the non-folding wooden junk).

    Actually in this case, the trit sights were removed because tritium is banned here. Is in Germany too I believe.

    Tritium is banned in several countries because it's radioactive. Although it's an incredibly mild radiation, it's still radiation, and many laws don't make exceptions for the reasons of the tritium existing, they just ban it. This is the case in Germany and a fairly large portion of Europe, I believe.

    This never ceases to amuse me. Did these countries have watches in the 50s, 60s and 70s? Because they all had tritium in them... If I sell my dad's watch now, will I get arrested for trafficing with radioactive materials? :rolleyes:

    Does anyone have any hard data on other countries that don't have tritium night sights on their military hardware because they are radioactive?

    Yes, sir. That's the beauty. I had a chance to buy a M76 folder for $1200, and like an idiot, I passed. It was immediately after I bought a pre-ban CAR-15 for about $1000.

    I'd like a Galil, too, but a parts kit costs almost $1,000 and complete guns have been banned in CA since 1989. Oh well, time to move.

    Uhhh... that folder is just, well, fugly - I have no other word for it. Get a Galil type folder, far more pleasing to the eye :)

    That folder has a simplicity to it that appeals to me.

    It sort of reminds me of the T-stocks for STEn guns.
