Romanian RPK Rifle Battlefield Pick Up Style, 7.62 X 39 Semi Automatic Rifle by Atlantic Arms MFG. The original MD 64 RPK’S were built by Fabrica de Arme Cugir as the Puşcă Mitralieră Model 1964 and intended to be a light squad machine gun. The MD 64 RPK operating system is the big brother to the AK-47. They both use the same 7.62 x 39mm ammunition. The design is the same as the Kalashnikov series but the RPK has been beefed up to increase effective range and accuracy. The addition of a heavier and longer barrel helps maintain accuracy when increased barrel temperature from extended periods of rapid fire would normally be an issue. The RPK utilizes a laminated wood fore grip, and a fixed laminated wood “club-foot” butt stock, which is designed to allow the user to fire from the prone position, with increased accuracy and comfort. The rifle uses a standard AK 47 pistol grips, normal AK 47 magazines, and drums. Atlantic Arms was fortunate enough to be able to procure a shipment of these kits from the Romanian Military Arsenal. They were used by the Romanian armed forces and then demilitarized into exportable parts kits. Atlantic Arms MFG combines the Original Military kits with enough US parts to make these roar back to life in a Civilian Legal semi auto configuration. They are built with a High Quality Green Mountain Chrome lined barrel for accuracy and long service life threaded in 14 x 1 left. They also have a Optic Rail on the left side should you want to install a Optic and scope mount. These were built in the nostalgic battlefield pick up style to look like you just brought her back from the field. The kits are surplus, showing all the character that you would expect from military squad rifle, but revitalized with the new receiver and barrel, then checked over and test fired by the Atlantic Arms build team. Each rifle is unique and will show different patina and use on the firearms surfaces. You may even find trench art or other interesting memorabilia. If you are looking for a great shooter and a real conversation piece this Battlefield Veteran may be ideal for you! Comes with 1-30 round mag and 1 year Atlantic Arms MFG warranty.
Please Note: These are built with Military Surplus kits and will show character and flavor. Character and color of stock sets may vary. Bi pod style may vary and may have wiggle or play . Sorry there are no special requests . Does not come with optic in pictures or drum and pouch.
