    Firearms: What country are they from?

    I'm curious as to what obscure countries of origin there might be out there. Don't need to list names or quantities but try and use the period correct name of the country (e.g. Soviet Union, as opposed to Russia).

    I'll start:

    Russia
    Belgium
    Switzerland
    Austria
    Germany
    United Kingdom
    U.S.A.
    Sweden

    For copies of all most anything. Quality from very good to very very poor.

    Guns don't kill, bad choices do.

    Zastava are from Serbia by my reckoning, though they made stuff under licence to Brno from Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic)

    None of the above would I class as obscure.
    Belgium may be classed as slightly odd though
