We finally received a small batch of the highly desirable Romanian Md 1964 RPK's!
These rifles were purchased overseas complete and demilled by an actual Military arsenal. The years on these kits range from mid 60's and up, and can offer hand select option for specific years, as inventory permits. This is a light machine gun kit only missing the receiver. You will still need rivets and other small 922r parts to legally build it back up.
We populate the barrel and headspace these kits using Green Mountain Chrome Lined 23" RPK barrels. The outside of the barrel is unfinished and in the white.
*NOTE: Non-Matching kits do NOT include a cleaning rod. All other kits will come with an RPK length cleaning rod!
Non-Matching: These may have minor issues such as finish wear, missing the bipod clamp, front sight post tweaked in, and typical battlefield issues like cracked upper handguards. We do not check for matching numbers.
Mostly Matching: We guarantee matching serial numbers on the bolt, bolt carrier, and trunnion. These rifles were hand 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 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.
100% Matching: We guarantee matching bolt, bolt carrier, dust cover, gas tube and trunnion.
CAT II: We guarantee matching bolt, bolt carrier, dust cover, gas tube and trunnion. CAT II kits were issued but are still in excellent condition, standing apart from other matching kits with their excellent finish
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.
I absolutely love it. Arrived in perfect condition and functions amazingly.
The parts kit was perfect, and the shipping times were exactly as described. I couldn't be happier.
It's in the Queue to be built soon but everything is in excellent shape. What surprised me was the quality of the furniture. AOA is top notch. This kit WAS worth the wait!!!
I didn't really know what to expect when I ordered my kit. But I do know but I'm very happy with it. I got the head space matching numbers kit. It was extremely well demilled all the parts were there all the numbers matchedI have not started to build yet. I have several AK kit that I'm going to build first. You might say a warm-up to the rpk. I would highly recommend not if you're looking for a good professionally demilled kit this would be the place to buy one I have a few AK kits from them. My brother has as well and we're both very pleased with the quality of stuff.
Worth the wait! Very happy with this parts kit. I have finished my build and am very excited to shoot it. I reblued every thing and blued the new barrel. Minor wear on the stock and fore grip , but they polished out nicely , and have “character” , took a bit of hand fitting ont he stock and lower grip, but within normal expectations
The best in the business
