I don’t know what the hell is going on there, but I like it.  I’m waiting for the Apple/Glock ammo collab though.

Thoughts?  I know herbs are waiting for the Blackberry / Hi-Point collab.  Fall back.

There’s actually a good explanation for this.

Nokia is one of Finlands oldest industrial companies, starting up with wood pulp in 1865. They diversified into rubber in 1898, and electrical cables in 1912. Lots of fingers in lots of pies.

In 1987 Finnish state-owned arms manufacturer Valmet merged with SAKO, forming the new company SAKO-VALMET, with ownership split in half between the Finnish government and Nokia. Loads of reorganizations led to the company retaining the SAKO name and being sold off to Beretta Holdings. That means they joined the family of Beretta, Benelli, Franchi etc. SAKO currently sells under the premium SAKO brand and the more reasonably priced Tikka.

So, Nokia did make guns and ammo throughout the 90’s.

Oh, and for you AK lovers, the Valmet M76 is supposedly one of the finest AK variants out there.

Valmet made everything in Finland in the 80’s.
