    The military has mechinisms in place to allow this.
    It probably belonged to the snipers spotter.
    Had he done that, he'd have had the paperwork, and it wouldn't have been an issue.

    Also, a lot of the Iraqi "snipers" were just regular troops firing AKs from hide positions. What we consider a sniper, an elite rifleman with specific training and specialized weapons, were few and far between in the Iraqi Army under Saddam. I've seen a few SVDs in theater, but they weren't that common.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    most third world countries use SKS's, they are cheaper than AK's

    Uses the same 7.62x39 round that the AK uses, 10 round internal magazine loaded by stripper clips. Fairly accurate, cheap, ammo is easy to find.

    ETA: To more accurately answer your question. Insurgents use whatever they can get their hands on. That includes SKS's
