    Jim, I made it up as a joke to fool the non cartridge collector, Sovieticon 5,45x18mm sells for around $10 to $12 per cartridge now and no reason nor need to fire an expensive collector cartridge in your AK74 or clone

    I don't think I've even seen the little ones. I remember when the long ones were $100 CDN each...

    The Sovieticon PSM pistol chambers the 5,45x18mm and is quite rare to locate or purchase. Before the US ATF requirements went into effect (the PSM would not pass the requirement for import), there
    were a few PSM pistols in the USAicon, some were gifts and some smuggled. One was on a west coast auction in 1993 listed for $3000.00, I saw a PSM on a small auction in the late 90's for $3400.00.

    Note, you can make 5,45x18mm from 22 Hornet brass
