Love to hear that!SAR-1’s are just about the closest you can get to a commie military manufactured AKM.
the trigger monstrosity is courtesy of the importer.
Mine has the loveliest bolt/action of my AKM’s.
They've gone from about $500 to almost $1,000 in the last 5 years.
Its basically a true copy of a Russian AKM. All parts will interchange. The barrel will need to be threaded and the gas block swapped out for a bayonet lug to create a true milspec Kalashnikov
Guys who Need to sell their ARs or AKs (or paid too much) will have high motivation to make other people feel that their rifles are inferior.
I'll agree that the post-89 ban MAADIs, that were imported by INTRAC, PARS, had some of the worst finish on them........looks as if they took a rattle can spray paint and they painted it in a sand storm that is how mine looked when i bought it, but the front sights, gas block and rear sight block was straight. the milling of the bolt and bolt carrier was also very good.Well the 1990s Egyptian AK factory builds have long been called crap and junk.
Guess what? They're going for over 1000 dollars now.
I own Early one...
Romanian..excellent quality finish
Early as in 1960's or 70's kit or ?
Most Romanian AKM's are dated on the front trunnion.I don’t really know...was assuming ..
it was a friends long in his safe I turned his collection..When he passed.
looked better finished wood ..
Really all over..
ones afterwards, I came across..Roughly in new conditions.
its still un fired and I set it up..scoped.
