The Khyber Pass Gun Markets


I was employed as the Pakistan AF F16 jet fighter program manager from 1982 to 1993 and I had the pleasure to visit the Khyber Pass on invitation of the Khyber Rifles on many occasions. The video is very good but does not show the wild west side of the gun markets. There were no laws, no police or miltary in the area  other than the Khyber Rifles whos function was to guard the pass.  At the time an AK47 style weapon sold on the market for about $30 in US dollars. Needless to say the craftmanship of the weapons left a lot to be desired and most weapons were not very relieable.
