Even then, it wasn't the same stuff as the 90s. Nope. Different. And now its even way more different, and not even nearly as good as the 2000s version.
Man sorry to hear you had to go through that shit...
But just as you said, already in early 2000 the AK47 wasn't the same anymore. I remember it was about that time, say 2003 or so when rumors started to surface that the Nirvana F2 of AK47 is better than the original because they got raided and lost the parent over at serious and the replacement wasn't as good. So the F2 of the original parent stock were actually better by all accounts at that point in time.
But if memory serves, Serious had already gotten Nirvana to "cease and desist" with their AK47 F2s and they were no longer sold and Nirvana changed it to AK48, a different strain.
So basically the Nirvana F2 packs that were sold and being grown up to that point, were suddenly the "heirloom AK47" seeds.
Going forward the "original" AK47 only got worse and the Nirvana F2 version also disappeared from forums etc. and the strain was basically lost (while Serious kept insisting it was same as it ever was even to this day).
I believe it was also mentioned on the Adam Dunn Show and other podcasts that basically the only way the "true" AK47 will resurface is if some underground breeders who made F2 seeds do an open pollination seedrun and release those seeds.
That's why I had hoped that could be you.
Katsu also listed that he has pre 2k AK47 seeds if I remember correctly and I am sure there are others but nobody has come out and made some AK47 F2s or F3s or what and put them on the bay or whatever.
I really hope that happens eventually...
It's so dumb by serious too, they should know their own strain, so if I was them, I would put my feelers out for seeds such an underground grower kept all those years, grow them all out and see if it fits what you know about AK47 and if it is indeed a true representation of the line, just take it from there.
Much better than crossing The Chronic to it and calling it same as it ever was for decades ...
