AK47 Varieties made
Yugoslavian AKM and RPK. Some versions
fire the 7.62x51 NATO (.308 NATO) round. Longer barrel
than MAK-90. The wood and workmanship of these rifles
are almost the same as the Romanian but the most important
variance is the metal thickness of the stamping. Other
countries use the 1mm thickness the Yugoslavs used
a 1.5mm thickness. This added thickness allows for
more rigidity in the receiver while still allowing
some flexing. Chamberings available for this rifle
are in 7.62x51mm, 8mm mauser, 7.62x54mmR, 7.62x39mm,
5.56x45mm and 5.45x39mm.

RPK Parks Kit Review
of our sponsors, Arms of America recently
gave us the opportunity to review some
of their parts kits. Here we review two RPK parts kits.
One is a Romanian RPK the
other is a Yugoslavian
RPK. Both started life as military
rifles, each were at some point removed
from service and eventually chopped into
parts, then shipped to the US and now are
being sold by the guys at Arms of America for
only $499.99 each for either flavor.
are cool and big, Heavy duty and strengthened
all around. I've shot these before so I can
already see how nice these rifles will be
to shoot. Enjoy the pictures as we help illustrate
these kits and the differences between them.
