War museum in Siem Reap, Cambodia

In 2014 I took a job as lead teacher at an international school in Siem Reap, Cambodia. I had plenty of free time to explore the surrounding area, one day, I happened to notice a sign for the "War museum" just outside of town. It was pretty cool, you could actually pick up and examine the weapons on display. As a small arms mechanic and armorer , I have an interest in guns of all types. I liked the old Soviet weapons and there were several ww2 era American weapons on display also. I was able to cycle the bolt on a ww2 era BAR (Browning automatic rifle), and perform a function check a Vietnam era M-16A1. I have no doubt that given the tools and time, I could restore these weapons for use. Pretty cool.

See you on the trail!
