Our Assessment: What’s more exotic than an Egyptian Rifle?  One of only 8,000 ever made.  The Egyptian Rasheed Carbine was modeled after the Swedish AG-42 Rifle which would become the Egyptian Hakim rifle after WW2 when Egypt acquired the rights to the design and the equipment to produce them.  The Hakim was then modified to use 7.62×39 cartridges and was profiled down with the addition of detachable magazines.  The result was a rifle that looks pretty similar to the Russian SVT-40 or SKS.  Due to the conflicts in the Middle East that escalated quickly after the Rasheed Carbine’s production and the new AK47 design that would soon take the world over and prove more combat effective – the Rasheed was discontinued after only 8,000 units.  Don’t miss out on being one of the only owners of a true Egyptian rifle.  Good Luck!
