Hakim Rifle in Somalia (xakiin Qori)

Recommended Posts


Hello, I am currently researching the Egyptian Hakim rifle and am trying to uncover its history in Somalia. Does anyone who has lived in Somalia here recognize the rifle? If you have any family members who were in the military, do they recognize it? I know there are pictures of it from during the war and after, but I need more information. 

I am trying to figure out when they came into Somalia. Was it a long time before the war with Ethiopia, right before, or during the war? Perhaps all? Here is an old news story about Egypt sending Somalia weapons during the war, so I know they are all possibilities.


Thank you!
