(New York Daily News) The Russian-style rifle found near Osama Bin Laden’s body after he was killed in a raid by Navy SEALs now hangs in a super-secret museum in the belly of the CIA’s headquarters, NBC News reports.

The AK-47, taken from the third floor of Bin Laden’s Abbottabad hideout, lay just out of reach for the 9/11 mastermind when SEAL Team 6 members stormed his bedroom just after midnight on May 2, 2011, and felled him with a blast to the forehead.

The gun is one of the most recent additions to the CIA Museum in Langley, a thrilling archive of spycraft memorabilia dating back to the agency’s birth during World War II.
