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.
1965-1968 Palm Swell BFPU Kits: These are the first edition switch to laminate furniture that started in 1965. These were the closest copy to the Russian AKM during that period. The Romanians used a laminate Russian red color handguard that is highly sought after during this run. This was used on all 1965-1968 kits and a small number of 1969, which was the year that started to transition to the dong. This type is highly sought after by collectors considering most Romanian palm swells have been replaced by dongs over the years. These kits are guaranteed to at least have matching # bolt, bolt carriers, and trunnions *many have lots more matching serial #'s*. These are rated as battlefield condition. That could include carvings in the stock sets/trench art, rust, finish wear, dents/dings in the dust cover, tweaked front sight posts/ears pushed inwards, and cracks in the upper hg. The rifles we received are still in fully functional condition and our selection was focused on selecting rifles perfect for builds that still have a long life ahead.
BFPU Non-Matching: These may have minor issues such as finish wear, front sight post tweaked in, and typical battlefield issues like cracked upper handguards. These rifles were selected by our agent out of a lot of Cat 3/Battlefield Rifles so expect parts and furniture to show wear similar to our Military Battlefield Md 63's. That could include carvings in the stock sets/trench art, rust, finish wear, dents/dings in the dust cover, tweaked front sight posts/ears pushed inwards, and cracks in the upper hg. The rifles we received are still in fully functional condition and our selection was focused on selecting rifles perfect for builds that still have a long life ahead. We recommend choosing this grade for those who are experienced with repairing parts. Non-matching kits may come with palm swell handguard instead of dong. Cracked upper handguards is also common.
Matching Numbers: We guarantee matching bolt, bolt carrier, and trunnion. Other parts may match but cannot be guaranteed. Finish may range from BFPU grade or better, but less than CAT II grade.
CAT II All Matching: CAT II kits were issued but are still in excellent condition, standing apart from other matching kits with their excellent finish. We guarantee matching bolt, bolt carrier, dust cover, gas tube and trunnion. Some parts may be non-serialized and would be considered matching.
Very Good Non-Matching: CAT II condition kits but some of the parts do not have matching serial numbers.
Early 60's kits (63 and 64): nearly all kits have cracked hardwood furniture. These kits are guaranteed to have major matching parts (Bolt, Carrier, Trunnion). Other minor parts are not guaranteed to match. 1963 was the first year of production for these kits so these are the oldest possible Romanian Md63 kits and very rare to come by!
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.
*Auto rate reducer, reducer spring, curved sear, trip spring, and 3rd pin removed for kits going to the following states:
*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.
When I can I try to get a kit to work on.My 1st was a Romanian mod 65 UF, 2nd was a Romanian mod 63.BFPU
1st yr production kit. All parts/pieces present. Hardwood furniture good, not cracked or overly marred. No scuffs or de-mil scratches on front trunnion like some kits. Overall, happy with purchase.
Kit was received exactly as described. Worn with a slight crack in the LHG. Upper HG, stock, and PG were fine. Mine had 5 matching parts. Will build up into a great rifle.
What a great kit. Everything was matching serial numbers. Handguard was cracked but that wad expected. Thank you very much
Perfect, as always from AoA.
Received 1977 kit in really nice condition and packaged well. All matching parts including furniture. I would say all around excellent condition. I would buy again for sure. Sending kit to AK John for build. AOA did it right with this kit.
Probably the best kit iv gotten from any company. I'm going to have to buy some more from these guys
Kit was in great shape, ALL numbers matched. Thanks AOA
I was happy with it but I think for the wear and damage it has on it it should be a little less expensive. I know 1963’s are rarer but $740 for a kit with cracked wood and the lower handguards are really beat to hell is a tad high.
