Well, I have to give Acr a big thanks for making me order this. I couldn't resist after he received his. $520 shipped to my dealer. $10 for the transfer. Mags fit with very little movement and the sight base has a very slight cant. Nothing to get excited about. This is a lot of rifle for the price. As mentioned, I sure couldn't have built one any cheaper. If you're wanting a Romanian RPK, I strongly recommend giving these a look.





ps. It was nice of you guys to all join the month I was born. :)

I agree, a new Romy RPK kit alone is going to go for more then I paid for the whole rifle. I varnished the wood last night in hopes of getting the laminate to stand out alittle better.

How did that turn out? I'm kicking myself because I bought a nice Romanian RPK stock set from IO a while back and fitted it to my Norinco 91. It would sure look good on this Romanian. Did you apply any stain?

It turned out pretty good, I used a walnut stain which is alittle dark, I might redo it in a "redder" shade...

That looks great buddy! You said you would beat me to a review and you did. Maybe I can get some pictures of mine up tomorrow.

I have been absent for a while on the board so please pardon me if I missed some info. Who did you order your RPK from?

Looks quite nice by the way.

I'm glad they went with the heavier barrel on the AES. The first run with the standard barrel left something to be desired.
