**Please note: at this time we are not offering Romanian Surplus headspaced kits on our Chrome Lined barrels due to fitment issues, we are only offering Nitride barrels for these Romanian Surplus kits. Please do no call or email to request to change the barrel for headspacing as it will be denied.
These Romanian Military AKM47's are some of the last original Military rifles we could find overseas.
Carefully demilled and offered in a variety of grades. These kits were issued so expect wear but they are still fully operational. They will have finish wear and possibly carvings, cracked upper handguards, small dents, and dings in parts and or the wood furniture.
Higher grades and later years will see less instances of wear and tear.
CAT II kits are guaranteed to match all major serial numbers, have nicer finishes with less wear, and are mostly later year kits 70's-80's
Early 60's kits (63 and 64) may have cracked wood, especially palm swell handguards. These kits are guaranteed to have major matching parts (Bolt, Carrier, Trunnion). Other minor parts are not checked for numbers, and may or may not match.
You will still need to purchase a receiver, rivets, and possibly other small parts to complete this. These are original full auto Military rifles so you must comply with 922r and build this rifle in semi auto.
Your kit is 100% head-spaced correct out of the box. We perform a series of checks across several team members prior to every order going out.
If you have concerns, you must check headspace before changing anything about the headspaced assembly. If you have questions, please take pictures, and/or video, and reach out to us.
Once the barrel is removed, or any alteration has been made to the populated barrel, at that point the customer or builder becomes responsible for a proper build.
AOA cannot take responsibility for a headspaced assembly once alterations have been made to our gunsmith's work.
Removing the barrel and reinstalling it may result in head-space loosening or tightening of your pre-head spaced kit.
Recheck head-space after you are done riveting your trunnion into your receiver and reinstall the barrel, and ensure it is good before pressing the barrel pin.
Once all built, please clean your firearm before firing to make sure your new firearm is clear of assembly or shipping debris,
Thank you again.
They did a great job head spacing the kit and cutting a clean a barrel pin whole, with a 12 ton press everything slides and fits very nicely, as long as holes are drilled proper fit and finish is A1. Zero issues what so ever and very little surface rust on any of the old parts (mine being a 1964 build).
Kit has that been there done that look which looks great to me. Not the cleanest but if you looking for that bfpu look that has that character then this is what you want. Kits complete and the headspace job is good with good workmanship.
Always great quality and great service!
Nice kit, all matching numbers. I got a 1968 vintage kit. Went together easy. All the barrel components were lined up correctly and strait. Only thing I don’t like it the wait time, almost two months to get it delivered. But it’s worth it.
Arms of America has once again exceeded my expectations. I received a beautiful all matching kit from the year 1975. Thank you.
The barrel is very nice and the trench art on the wood is very cool. Long wait and the price was a little steep but the end product is very good. The bolt, trunnion, bolt carrier and a few other pieces had numbers that matched. The cover and a few other pieces did not but its not a big deal. Happy with the product and would buy again and is worth it.
When I ordered this, it took quite a while and I thought it'd never arrive. Upon arrival, everything was of top notch and quality (if a bit smoggish). Sight radius wasn't airsoftlike, unlike a VSKA, and the best part is that because it's headspaced by default I didn't have to worry about properly headspacing and drilling the hole for the barrel pin to enter.
Out of all military parts kits i've seen, this has to be by far the best quality one. I'd recommend it if they weren't out of stock, but if they do - don't hesitate to leap for CAT II all numbers. Those are the most pleasing.
Five stars for AoA, kit is awesome. Patina was very nice. Having it headspaced made assembly very easy.
