There once was an arms dealer known as "Grade A Arms and Services Black Market". It existed somewhere in the "The Aryan Confederate States" and had a simple website that listed very little information on what they sold. The exact type, pricing, and quality of their "AK-47s" was unknown to most people. The organization was blacklisted and then that blacklisting was redacted.

The only other information that was available, was that they had apparently signed up to be part of the "NationStates Central Bank", which was a medium status organization, which has now appeared to go out of business.

Not only that, but "Grade A Arms and Services Black Market" has appeared to go out of business and their nation of "Aryan Confederate States" is no longer on any recently updated maps.

Finally, information on their so-called "AK-47" was provided, as the weapons ended up on the actual "Black Market", or more accurately "The Ghost Market". Buyers looked over the weapons and found that they had rather pale furniture, a lightly colored and shiny bolt, a dust-cover/upper receiver that lacked reinforcing but made up for this by being around 50% thicker, and the barrel appears to lack chrome lining (Which is normally standard).

"Amin Guns and Artillery was a short-lived which had access to a wide range of bargain priced weapons. One of which they called The Automatic Kalashnikov 47. The weapon was very similar to an AK-49 actually, with AK-47 parts. A lot of the wood furniture was blocky and very simple as well, while the metal coloration was a bit odd to some who inspected the weapons. Sadly, the company went under without selling any of these strange Kalashes, and the nation then started to have serious problems too. They appeared to sell less then a thousand of these weapons, before the company went over, and the weapons then disappeared. Below was their marketing blurb, the weapons are commonly seen for around 600 Universal Dollars"

"The Kalashnikov, known as the AK47, is a classic military weapon of the 20th century. Known for its reliability under harsh conditions and easy production costs, and its long barrel, this unmistakable weapon can be yours for only $575. That's right. We are selling the AK47 for a price cheaper than even in Afghanistan! If you buy now, we will send you a free XCP sporting pistol as well, free of charge!"

In The Wolfussian Colony of Oceania, it was rumored there was large factories that turned out weapons without fail. For two whole years a fairly broken webpage was said to be up, where they offered pictures of what they had for sale and names for it, but minimal pricing and descriptions. It was believed you had to personally call the factory for more details.

To little surprise, the factories, company, and nation are said to no longer exist.

The weapon appears to be a AKM with very simple polymer furniture, like that in the AK-74M, only much more simpler in make and design. There isn't a muzzlebreak of any kind, and the weapon appears to have an AK-49/Type-56 bolt color for the bolt. By all appearances the weapon is better then most AKMs, if a bit odd in make and appearance. On the Black Market, the weapon is found for around 500 dollars each, with hundreds of thousands rumored to be flowing around.

Below is a company blurb recovered.

"United VĂ¥pen Factories Inc.

We are a company that was made to help people and nations get versatile, reliable and trustworthy weapons. We sell many small arms made on Oceanic land that can be used in any environment or scenario.

Humble beginnings

Our company started providing weapons for the old Wolfussian empire, but when the depression came, and the empire collapsed, we found a home in the nation of Oceania. We have been producing weapons for over 52 years, and we have the experience and equipment to meet the needs of your order."


We currently have 70,000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a crate, with a crate being 2500 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

The MindWalker AKMSN was manufactured by the "Kaiser" faction of MindWalker and the "National MindWalker Armament Factories" over the past few years. What makes the weapon special compared to most AKs, is the addition of an AK-74 muzzlebreak, a folding metal stock, and glass-filled polyamide furniture like in the AK-47M. Most experienced soldiers from the Cold War era used similar rifles, but put a tourniquet in the stock to use as a cheek rest. We don't sell tourniquets for this purpose, but we tested a few out in these rifles and found out they perform wonderfully. The Kaiser conscripts who were stuffed into mechanized vehicles, swear by this compact rifle and it's reduced recoil from the muzzlebreak.

We currently have One Million of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a crate, with a crate being 3000 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

The fastest way to make absolutely sure that a point is bad, is to pretend to argue for it to people that are against it.

Private Military Contractors


We have a considerable demand for experienced and disciplined men, who have military experience and training. While many second world militarizes pay their soldiers around 500 Universal Dollars a month, we are prepared to pay 1120 Universal Dollars a month for combat roles and 560 Universal Dollars a month for support staff. Please see our various open positions and offerings, before making an application.

Each Warlord loyal to the Kafka Family needs a hardened and trained revenue to secure their foothold of power, along with providing protection and policing duties to the various craftsmen and bureaucrats of the city. Payment per person provided is 1120 Universal Dollars a month, typically for contracts of six months. Your rifle will be a lightly used AK-74 and your body armor will be a set of IIIA protection vest and helmet. The helmet will likely be ACH or PASGT in type, with the body armor matching that of PASGT or a western police ballistic vest.


Each Warlord loyal to the Kafka Family has to raise around 4% of the population into a military role during the "Fighting Season" after the harvest, this happens around November. While we are waiting for the next fighting season, we need to fix, maintain, and organized a large supply of logistics for when the fighting happens again. Some Warlords have limited operations with non-state hostile actors and as such, need to mobilize their professional forces to fight.

Payment per person provided is 500 Universal Dollars a month, typically for contracts of six months. Your personal weapon will be a modified version of the famous STEN gun or theKP/44. You are expected to never see combat, and even if you did, your weapon would be suitable for firing bursts at the enemy. Most criminals and terrorists won't be as well armed as you.


Each Warlord loyal to the Kafka Family has to raise around 4% of the population into a military role during the "Fighting Season" after the harvest, this happens around November. Some Warlords have limited operations with non-state hostile actors and as such, need to mobilize their professional forces to fight. Since their professional forces are mostly confined to safeguarding their local towns and villages, we have a strong need for highly professional supplements.

Payment per person provided is 1120 Universal Dollars a month, typically for contracts of six months. If in an infantry role, your rifle will be a lightly used AK-74. If the driver or crew-member of an active combat vehicle, you will be provided with a KP/40. Your body armor will be a set of IIIA protection vest and helmet. The helmet will likely be ACH or PASGT in type, with the body armor matching that of PASGT or a western police ballistic vest.
