UK-59

Note that the ammo belt has no bullets, just brass cases with crimped tops for blank fire exercises. The UK-59 uses the same round as the Dragunov, Mosin Nagant, and PKM; 7.62x54R. There are a small number of semi-automatic examples that were built from parts kits and offered to the public by MarColMar.(GRH)
