These Rare Romanian MD 63 Underfolders AKM 47's are highly collectable and make excellent compact 7.62x39 rifles! 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.
Non-matching kits may come with palm swell handguard instead of dong. Cracked upper handguards is also common.
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 original finish, 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.
Kits range from 1967-1980's and only a small portion are from the 60's and have the palm swell handguard (anything 1970 and later will have the reverse dong). Any hand select requsts for 60's dated kits may take a long time to fulfill or be impossible depending on inventory, so we recommend you offer alternative date requests if you are looking for an early model Hand Select.
Kit was as advertised. Very pleased. The trunnion was oversized, so I knurled the barrel journal to get it to fit properly. All numbers matching except the carrier spring.
Communication and shipping were fast and kit was perfect. It was better than expected. It was demilled perfectly. Would order again
Some small issues, as expected. Didn't want a pristine build, more of a battle field pick up look. Exactly what was wanted
I had a hand selected kit and all the main pieces of my kit had matching numbers. The wood on my kit was in very good condition with no gouges. The metal parts were worn but in good working order.
I’ve bought a few kits, and most of them had the old cut receiver and cut barrel included, not a big problem, but it takes a bit of work to remove the barrel pieces and receiver. I was really impressed with that fact that it was already cleaned up and ready. If you get the non matching kit, the furniture may have names carved into it.
Actually, it's 4.5 star rating, would be a 5 star if not for the ding in lower foregrip. Great cond.cat II. '72 dated 9 points of matching. Couldn't be much more satisfied, except for the ding. And No pick of the litter upcharge.
What a beauty! My parts kit arrived numbers matching throughout. The numbers even were stamped on the reverse dong! Couldn't be happier. AOA has delivered once again. Thanks!
I bought a Cat 2 kit and got exactly what I was hoping for. The kit was in excellent condition, with only slight wear here and there. I did not pay for the hand select and was still very pleased with the kit that I got.
