They are not sealed, at lest they are not top secret.
I’m not sure if I still have it, but I red an article about Schmeisser’s work in USSR, basically he was bored to death, as they only gave him some minor, pretty primitive jobs. I guess the main point, if there was any point at all, wasn’t to get Hugo exploited as much as possible, but to not let him fall in the hand of Western allies.
. Besides, why would Russians admit German involvement in work over early Soviet ballistic missiles, but not small arms?
Thanks. I should have noted one thing which I'll mention to you now since you're building your own. If you weren't already aware, the MPi-KM doesn't accept standard surplus AK slings. The slings are skinnier and as a result the sling swivel on the buttstock is too. You'll have to order one specifically made for the MPi-KM. Something to keep in mind if you'll be throwing a sling on your rifle. Found this out the hard way just recently when I tried to attach an old sling I had lying around and couldn't figure out how I had done it before on my Maadi.
