where did you find that pic? and you got anymore or details?

Photo I found floating around on the ‘net.I don’t know the exact date but Mikhail Kalashnikov visited Britain in the 90’s,he was taken on a visit to the Royal Ordnance factory in Nottingham, and shown the SA80.Apparently after shooting it he looked at it for a while, and finally said: "You must have some very clever soldiers."

He also met Eugene Stoner on his first trip to the USA in 1990......
