Original U.S. Vietnam War Era Chinese M22 Type 56 AK-47 Hard "Rubber Duck" Training Rifle

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a 1960s Cold War / Vietnam War Era U.S. military issue AK-47 training replica rifle. The military calls these rifles Rubber Ducks. This is full size, true to weight, non-firing replica made of hard rubber, molded from an original. The receiver is marked with M22 which is the Chinese variant AK-47 Type 56.

These were used for training by the military so they would not ruin a real rifle and as a safety precaution to prevent accidental discharges. It measures 34 inches long, and is in good condition, though it does have some damage from use. Otherwise, the rubber is solid and is very detailed with minor cracks, splitting and material loss.

The Type 56 is a Chinese 7.62×39mm rifle. It is a variant of the Soviet-designed AK-47 (specifically Type 3) and AKM rifles. The Type 56 rifle was designated by the Chinese military as "Type 1956 Submachine Gun", because the Type 56 took the role of SMG rather than infantry service rifle in the PLA in the rifle's early service years. Production started in 1956 at State Factory 66 but was eventually handed over to Norinco and PolyTech, who continue to manufacture the rifle primarily for export.
