Well, in Vice City there's a kruger rifle. Before playing VC, I don't even know that kruger exists tounge.gif I never heard about this weapon...... Maybe it was a famous weapon in 80s?

I don't really know why they left out the AK and put this one instead. While in VCS (set two years before) They used the AK and it had the same gun sound.

Yeah that's really weird. AK was already famous in US since the Vietnam War if I'm not mistaken.

It's actually Ruger. Some weapons do not have their real-life names due to trademark issues.

I did a quick search in Wikipedia and I found that Ruger was a name of firearm manufacturing company. What type of Ruger that exist in VC?

EDIT: Mmmm... nevermind. mercie_blink.gif

I'm pretty sure there wasn't an AK in the beta. I think it was a wood-en Ruger. You know. Like in the photo.
Also, the Kruger was only called so in the PC version.

There was an AK in the beta. It's been left there from GTA III though.

Lol, R* changed the weapon names in VC a bit. I dunno why, but SPAS-12 is SPAZ-12, and Ruger is Kruger. It's kinda stupid IMO.

The "kruger" it's a copy of the Ruger Mini 14/F30GB semi-automatic rifle. Here's all you need about it: http://en.wikipedia..../Mini-14#AC-556
CUROSITY: it was the machinegun of the A-Team (remember, if not I PITY THE FOOL). XD

You need to get a warning like I did for accidentally bumping an old thread.

Leave that business to us, chief.

Closed for a 4 year bump even though ANDERA's post was on point. Nice, bro.
