Previously, this corporation was owned by The Kafka Family, a series of nobles in MindWalker. Our operation had included the surplus of weaponry that it needs to get rid of, due to replacement, along with various supply issues. We had some small orders overseas, but due to growing demand for weapons in our country, we had to shut down production for exports. Now that we have new investment, more shareholders, and a number of new supply-lines; we are coming back to the market with more products to offer.

We are also very interested in importation as well, due to the demand and supply of various goods.

Pistols

Image


This specific model of revolver was issued in MindWalker to it's Airforce, but since then has been resold and passed down in it's civilian world, Most families have at least one of these for protection, along with around 20 rounds of .38 special to go with it. They are a rather light gun made mostly of alumium, with key parts in steel, allowing the gun to be a great choice as a backup or throwaway gun. More of them are still constantly being made in shops all around the country, but not as much as other firearms are.

We currently have 1000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 500 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Revolver
Caliber: .38 Special and .38 Long Colt (Each Revolver Accepts both)
Weight: 1.3~1.5 lbs (0.59~7.0 kg)
Weight: 0.94 lbs (0.43 kg)
Barrel length: 2 in (51 mm)
Capacity: 6 round cylinder
Fire Modes: SA/DA

The Kalfak Bouncer .38 is a reproduction of a Colt Detective Special modified for a 4 inch barrel, produced from 1927–1986, and still used by many bodyguards and private security teams in MindWalker.

We currently have 500 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 750 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Revolver
Caliber: .38 Special and .38 Long Colt (Each Revolver Accepts both)
Weight: 1.3~1.5 lbs (0.59~7.0 kg)
Length: 7.75 in
Barrel length(s): 4 in (10.1 cm)
Capacity: 6 round cylinder
Fire Modes: SA/DA

The raging civil-war of MindWalker drives up demand for M1911s, but the supply of them from outside the country was until now, terrible. A large number of cottages find it's easier to make weapons out of aluminum then steel,as they can mill the parts and then reuse the shavings by melting them down. Since the Star Model B is a locked-breech design, it's strong and it's tilting steel barrel allows medium power rounds in such a handgun.

The weapon is good for at least 500 firings, after which the feed-ramp needs fixing. You can get 700 firings out of the gun if you don't mag-dump and cheap it daily. The gun doesn't have to worry about corrosion as much, as it's not steel, but stuff can still get left in the gun and jam it if you don't take care of it. Just wipe it down some daily.

We currently have 2000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 900 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Handgun
Caliber: 9x19mm (No +p, no hallow-points)
Weight:1.56 (0.71 kg)
Barrel length: 6.3 in (15.9 cm)
Capacity: 8 round box magazine
Fire Modes: SA/DA

Image


A lot of local parties have questioned the use of handguns after one already has a semi-auto rifle or automatic weapon of medium or lower weight. Those of these parties that still carry a sidearm, carry one that is suppressed or at least fairly compact. A few small factories turned out batches of compact PM Makarovs for years, because at that time the ammo was fairly available and the pistols are very good value. Since it's blowback, it's cheap, strong, precise, and easy to take apart or fix.

The weapon is bit less powerful than other handguns, but it's comfortable to shoot for smaller males, women, or people not used to firing handguns fairly often. If someone dies with a Makarov on them and some ammo, it's gone in a matter of minutes, as many families wish they had one. Normally they will save up for something else or just try to get a more powerful weapon, but demand for Makarovs is fairly strong among villages and cities.

Clean the gun every day you fire it, it's strong but most ammo on the market is cheap.

We currently have 3000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 1000 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Handgun
Caliber: 9x18mm (No +p, no hallow-points)
Weight: 26 oz (730 g)
Barrel length: 3.68 in (9.35 cm)
Capacity: 8 round box magazine
Fire Modes: SA/DA

While the Colt Cobra, which truly was more of a Colt Agent, was used a lot by civilians in MindWalker over the decades, it's a rather unpopular firearm. Due to the inferior build materials and technology used in its construction, the weapon had to be loaded colder or with wadcutters in order to not seriously damage the frame over time. The issue remained, was that there were people who were trained in making the various parts of these revolvers and there was still a market for them, switching over to producing a new firearm would be fairly hard and expensive.

This changed with the introduction onto the market of some Chinese Police revolvers in 38 New Police and the supply of Unspoken steel-cased ammo. Now there is a slowly rising supply of casings to reload at least twice more after being fired, along with the same fairly common supply of powder and even cheap imported brass. Another solid feature of this round, is that it works fairly well with black powder and lead cast bullets, making it very easy to handload.

We currently have 1000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 500 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Revolver
Caliber: .38 New Police

Capacity: 6 round cylinder
Fire Modes: SA/DA

Arab Ordnance Factories has agreed to sell us a strong supply of their Beretta M9s, and to allow us to sell their high quality Berettas made with Beretta tooling. They come in a very respectable case and are well sought after by operators, mercs, and gospodins here. More desired then even M1911s, they are well respected and highly durable pistols, with very solid accuracy.

We currently have 500 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 1500 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Handgun
Caliber: 9x19mm (No +p, no hallow-points)
Weight: 34.2 oz (970 g)
Barrel length: 4.9 in (125 mm)
Capacity: 15 round box magazine
Fire Modes: SA/DA
Effective firing range: 50-100 meters or yards
Maximum firing range: up to 100 meters or yards

With the extreme shortage in cheap pistols, and demand from the surrounding nations for a self defense pistol, there is a rising trade of crafted revolvers in Mind Walker. However, with demand being what it is and the difficulty of producing revolvers in large numbers, local MadeMan Inc contractors have taken to producing Makarovs or Ruby Pistols. The Ruby Pistols are chambered in .380 ACP, but can be produced in 9x18mm Makarov. Each factory making Ruby Pistols can only use it's own parts and own magazines, which means it's best to be careful, so that you only buy from one factory or keep your seperate factory pistols seperate.

Despite this; the pistols work just fine, are quite compact, are easy to shoot, and are quite reliable with standard ball ammo.

We currently have 2000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 900 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Handgun
Caliber: .380 ACP, 9x18mm Makarov
Weight: 1.87 (850 g)
Barrel length:3.15-4.73 inches (80–120 mm)
Capacity: 9 round box magazine
Fire Modes: SA

Sub Machine Guns

Image


The STEN sub-machinegun is one of, if not the most, cheapest automatic weapons used by countries in the name of warfare and defense. These weapons were partially constructed by school boys, which only makes it clear how simple the STEN is.

Those in MindWalker on both sides, prefer other designs for higher quality, but that comes at the price of higher cost. The STEN model that is popular here, involved a vertical magazine, a sliding stock, and a simple pistol grip. This makes the weapon a lot easier to use, while also being very compact. A lot of vehicle drivers, even civilians, have this weapon stuffed under their seat, on the passenger seat, in the glove box, or tied loosely to the dashboard.

We currently have 5000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a box, with a box being 300 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: SMG
Caliber: 9mm Parabellum
Weight: 7~ lbs (3.2~ kg)
Barrel length: 3~ in (76.2)
Capacity: 30 round box magazine
Fire Modes: Full Auto Only


Battle Rifles

Image


The SKS is found to be easier to aim with compared to the AK for many users and those hoping to hunt or engage problems at a distance prefer this weapon. While many of them are in the country and have been for decades, those models are beat up and have lost their shine. We however, keep making this weapon to sell, despite the increased cost compared to other weapons, because not everyone is allowed to own an AK. There is considerable demand for replacements for the older SKSes and it's not usual for a tribe to buy a new one, take it apart, and use it to fix all of their passed down SKSes.

To be even more helpful, we have no serial number on these rifles and can help you smuggle them anywhere you need, as there is lots of places people won't think twice about them being there.


We currently have 1,000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a crate, with a crate being 1700 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Battle Rifle
Caliber: 7.62x39mm
Weight: 8.5 lb (3.85 kg)
Barrel length: 20 in (520 mm)
Capacity: 10 round fixed magazine, fed with stripper clips
Fire Modes: Single, Safe


Assault Rifles

Image


The Kalashnikov is a sturdy and capable rifle, but it's very plentiful. Our families have operated off the most cost-effective AKM that we could make and only turned to imported parts or rifles when we could get more funds. For a lot of militias, paramilitaries, and some middle-class families; this is their best available weapon. This is the weapon serious people who are preparing for war or group conflicts reach for. Since these are going out of circulation for us, slowly, perhaps they can be a starting point for your forces or militias.

The rifle you are looking at, uses a milled receiver based off the AK Type 2, with AKM style furniture, flash-hider, gas-system and sights.Much of our industry is of as small scale as possible, which eats up time and means our production isn't as fast as desired. Despite this, these weapons were made fairly cheaply and in sizable numbers, while not skimping out on weak receivers or barrels not chrome-lined.

The Type V model is .13kg (0.28Ib) lighter, has a folding stock, comes with polymer water-proof furniture, and a strong but light polymer magazine.

We currently have 0 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a crate, with a crate being 1500 Universal Dollars roughly in value. The Type Vs are 800 in number and cost 1825 Universal Dollars a crate.

Type: Assault Rifle
Caliber: 7.62x39mm
Weight: 3.1 kg (6.83 lb)
Barrel length: 415 mm (16.3 in)
Capacity: 30 round box magazine
Fire Modes: Single, Automatic, Safe


Image

The region now known as Poteryal, was controlled by oval-eyed nationals who looked to a proud military tradition of large masses of infantry firing long-barreled weapons and charging with bayonets. When the time came to switch over to Assault Rifles, they had their own SKS factories millions of strange modifications of the SKS, which had larger 20 round fixed magazines, folding bayonetes, and Type-56 internals. Most of the versions we found however, have detachable Type-56 magazines in them, having been modified over the years.

While a rather crude weapon, the thousands we found in vaults are very affordable and feature 20-inch barrels mated to long sights.

We currently have 7,000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a crate, with a crate being 1200 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Type: Assault Rifle
Caliber: 7.62x39mm
Weight: 3.8 kg (8.38 lb)
Barrel length: 531 mm (20.9 in)
Capacity: 30 round box magazine
Fire Modes: Single, Automatic, Safe

Image

After the 1970s came to pass, many nations found that the 7.62x39mm round wasn't fitting their military needs. While the 5.45x45mm round is tricky to come by in MindWalker, it's found to be fairly common in other parts of the world. The AK-74 is a cheap and reliable rifle, much like the AKM, with only some simple changes that ultimately don't drive up cost or difficulty of manufacture up that much, if at all. Here the weapon is mostly used by Honor Guards for various war-lords or high-tier PMC forces.

These specific rifles had cherry wood furniture and were used by The 22nd Parallel, but ended up with their stocks or various parts damaged. Said parts were then replaced with what we had in stock and thus are good as new, just with some mismatched colors.

We currently have 2,000 of these to sell to you, in batches of five to a crate, with a crate being 1600 Universal Dollars roughly in value.

Grenades

Image


Known to the Yankees as the "Scalable Offensive Hand Grenade", the grenades are cylinders that can be screwed together via the top or base. Unlike the inferior Yankee model, we have made each of these grenades the same, so they can all be attached to a fuze or connected to one with a fuze. On top of that, we issue sticks that can be screwed into the bottom of any of these grenades, recreating the old German model of "stick grenade". Each grenade has a quarter pound of explosive in them, and when three are linked together, they can perform quite amazing feats of demolition.

Price is currently 100 Universal Dollars a grenade.

Private Military Contractors:


Security Work:

100,000 available, charge is 550 NSD a month for standard work.

Security work includes the standing around expensive or important things, carrying a rifle, shotgun, or pistol. If the area is safe enough, a baton or taser is also acceptable. Those hired for this position are ex-military and have served for at least three months. They have discipline and combat experience, so they can be expected to follow orders and hit a robber with the first few shots.




R Square

руководитель Результаты (Rukovoditel' Rezul'taty), also known as "R Square", is a Private Security Corporation. It currently maintains security for MindWalker MadeMan Incorporated, but is arranging packages to be hired by other firms or nations.

Recently, MindWalker MadeMan Inc, has taken an interest in competeing with all of the other tired, played out "mercenary" firms, considering they have the money and resources to expand into new markets. Though they don't have the massive finances of some other corperations, MindWalker MadeMan Inc isn't any kind of slouch and they do have considerably resources. Some "Soldiers of Fortune" consider it a horrible choice, to choose between the firms that view them as expendable, the firms that have impossible requirements, or working for "R Sqaure"; but this hasn't stopped many experienced or fresh mercenaries from signing up with R Square.

It is going to take a lot of time to really understand how successful R Square is going to be in the mercenary business, but currently they are doing reasonably well guarding and maintaining the facilities of MadeMan Inc, for now.

Contracted Local Serf Labor


MindWalker is a nation which knows war and knows chaos. In this kind of climate, people offer up their allegiance to the local War-Lord and by extension, the Counts, and thus, the Patriarch. In exchange for protection and sometimes land or resources, they are to provide yearly taxes and provide their labor a certain number of days out of the year. If their number comes up in the lot, they will be drafted to ensure that the War-Lord can keep the local area safe and secure.

Labor is contracted out for three months at a time, buyers are expected to treat contracted labor fairly, and are provided with access to said labor for eight to ten dollars a day, five to six days a week. If labor has to be exported outside the country, your payment covers air-travel there and back, but you are expected to house the labor and feed them. You can also choose a "subsistence addon", and we will contract out a place to sleep and meals separately.

The following is descriptions and titles to specific types of labor that can be contracted, along with various fees and addons.
Types of Labor


Service or Retail Labor: 250,000 available, charge is 1,100 NSD for standard work.

Service or retail work includes standing behind counters and next to cash registers, stocking shelves, loading and unloading trucks, and greeting people entering stores or helping them find things. Those hired for this position can do all these duties and have a fifth-grade education.

Farm or field labor: 500,000 available, charge is 1,300 for standard work.

Farm or field labor includes howing, plowing, driving tractors, planting seeds, watering crops, weeding, and harvesting of plants. Those hired for this position can do all of these duties and have a second-grade education.
Fees and Addons


Standard Labor: three months of 40 hours worked a week, no adjustments to cost, this is standard.

Labor for MindWalker: the cost of leaving MindWalker is removed from your total price, any contracted labor, 250 dollars cheaper. On top of that, the cost of finding and providing labor drops another 250 dollars.

Extended Labor: three months of 50 hours worked a week. Cost Increases by 38 percent extra.

Subsistence Addon: the cost of rent and food, operating on the lower median line for the country the labor will be working in, will be charged to you as the contract is completed. We will contract outside firms to provide a place to sleep, food, and other vitals to the labor, while they are staying aboard. If the labor is staying in MindWalker, this option is available at no extra cost.

Breaking News!


The "Fighting Season" in MindWalker has started early and this means we have an extreme need for weaponry, armor, munitions, and supplies. We have cleared out all supplies of AKM and AK-47 like rifles, have cleared out all our cheap imports, and are scrambling to get as many as possible to arm a predicted levy of 510,000 people! We have a strong need for fuel that is diesel compatible, grenades, rifle-grenades, anti-tank weapon, Machine-Guns, helmets, flak-vests, pickup trucks, and experienced mercenaries.

We are waving our standard fees or markups for paper currency. We are also offering to pay in Universal Dollars, but will pay a higher value of morphine, opiun, Yaba, heroin, iron ore, or rare earth elements.

We are also considering selling captured "Reich" or "Drug Elimination Alliance" soldiers, for around 10,000 each. Let us know if you are interested.

Finally, we are seeking to buy stock in other black market companies, buy part of their inventory, and form partnerships, if desired.

We now have so many AKs from the end of the MindWalker civil-war, that we have no idea what to even do with them!

Check it out!
