Our Assessment:  The Maadi MISR is an Egyptian-manufactured variant of the AKM, the modernized version of the iconic AK-47 designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Produced by the Maadi Company for Engineering Industries, which is part of the Egyptian military industrial complex, the MISR (meaning “Egypt” in Arabic) was developed under license from the Soviet Union. This affiliation ensures that the Maadi MISR closely adheres to the specifications and design principles of the original AKM, making it a true-to-form representation of one of the most widely recognized and influential firearms in the world.

The Maadi MISR’s significance lies not only in its fidelity to the AKM design but also in its role within the broader context of Cold War-era arms proliferation and the establishment of domestic arms manufacturing capabilities in nations aligned with the Soviet bloc. For collectors and enthusiasts, the MISR represents a piece of military history, embodying the spread of Kalashnikov’s design philosophy across national boundaries. Its production quality and historical authenticity make it a valued item among those interested in the lineage of the AK family of rifles. The Maadi MISR, like other AK variants, is appreciated for its durability, reliability in adverse conditions, and its historical significance as a symbol of Soviet influence in the Middle East during the latter half of the 20th century.  Please see our photos and good luck on your bid! -L.S.
