A Nov. 12 explosion in the testing tunnel at state-owned Cugir Arms Factory in Romania could negatively impact the availability of WASR rifles and Draco pistols available through Florida-based Century Arms—a stateside importer of classic firearms and manufacturer of AKs here in the United States. The Washington Post reported a 50-year-old woman was killed in the blast, and it took two hours for first responders to extinguish the resulting blaze.
“We support our Romanian partners in this tragic loss and time of need,” Century Arms said in a statement. “This factory produced a number of firearms imported by Century Arms including the popular WASR rifles and Micro Draco pistols….While the company has a small quantity in stock, future delivery status of these products is uncertain.”
Unknown how many alcoholic simians were dead or injured in the explosion.
