Croatian Improvised Weapons: From Obrez to Single-Shot Yugo M70 Hybrid

All the best firearms history channels streaming to all major devices:

During the Croatian Homeland War – as in all wars of independence – a wide variety of cobbled-together firearms were used by people who could not access proper factory arms for one reason or another. Today I’m as the Sisal Municipal Museum looking at four different examples from specifically the Sisal area in Croatia. Two are 16ga shotguns (16ga was more common there than the 12ga we are used to in the US), one is a classic Enfield “Obrez”, and one is a neat hybrid of a Yugoslav M70 AK onto a single shot break action frame.

Thanks to the Sisak Municipal Museum for giving me access to film these!
