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 good finish condition, and are mostly later year kits 70's-80's
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.
*Some of these are also oversized barrel trunnions, so it's possible you will need to get an oversized barrel. We can check the trunnion upon request if you place it in the notes PRIOR TO CHECKOUT, requests made AFTER order is placed may not be honored due to order volume.
My CAT II kit was absolutely beautiful and came exactly as described, Everything was matching numbers (including the furniture), The Finish on the metal was beautifully intact, and the wood was in fantastic condition, QC was really top notch when it came to selecting the CAT II kit I got. If it weren't for a bit of carbon on the gas piston and the 1973 stamp on the trunnion I almost wouldn't have been able to tell the kit was surplus. A+++ would absolutely recommend.
Excatly as described
In general I am happy with the kit. They heard my request and got me a front trunnion that was not oversized and would fit the barrel I already had. Everything looked in pretty good condition. Some wear but nothing I wasn't expecting. For something that is going to be my beater rifle it was more than satisfactory.
My one compliant is that out of everything in the kit that arrived, the one item missing was the detent spring for the muzzle device pin. Yes it isn't a big deal I thought at first but a new spring from you guys is ~$4 which isn't the problem, the problem is the $10 shipping estimated for an item that is smaller than a quarter. The shipping is more than the item. Put the spring in a damn letter envelope! I wouldn't have minded paying for the spring if it was packaged and shipped (cost bundled with the other items) I wouldn't have minded. I ended up getting the spring with a cleaning kit and 2 mags so I didn't feel so bad about paying for shipping for a single small spring. Not my fondest impression of AoA.
I once again spun the big magic wheel of AoA surplus with their non-matched kits, and topped it off by requesting trench art on my furniture. They sure as heck didn't disappoint! Although I mostly lost the serial number lottery with only the bolt carrier and bolt matching, I won big time in the BFPU category. On first glance I counted two individual names on the stock, one on the dong with "kill notches", and a well-known field repair on the gas tube wood that is indicative on hard-ridden Romanian rifles. It's a bit of a basket case with somewhat egged trunnion rivet holes, but it should work.
On my 3rd build. If you press your own receiver and have a functional brain this is the way to get a great build. Arms of America sends complete kits exactly as described. Sometimes I had cleaning kits or other goodies tossed in . Stocks have authentic battle graffiti that is another bonus. Order early because it will take awhile to get to you. Worth the wait.
