Just in, very limited, fully rebuilt on new chrome lined barrels By Praetorian Group, Veteran owned and Operated.
The RPK is essentially a beefed up AK-47 with a longer barrel for increased accuracy and heat dissipation. All rifles have been built from kits of rifles made in Fabrica de Arme Cugir as the Puşcă Mitralieră Model 1964 the model designation;MD64 for the Romanian RPK.
This MD 64 RPK variant is made with our hand-picked matching numbers (bolt, bolt carrier, front trunnion and dust cover) parts kits. Each kit is severely scrutinized before being chosen to build a rifle. The parts are hand selected from an inventory of hundreds of kits.
A US made muzzle device and fire control group (trigger, hammer and disconnector) are utilized so the rifle is 922(r) compliant even when using foreign magazines. All rifles are built on original Soviet era hammer forged trunnions. Trigger and hammer mating surfaces are polished for a smooth trigger pull, the hammer is also re-profiled the for improved action. After being assembled these rifles are test shot and sighted in before being fully parkerized. All RPK’s ship with an original Romanian milsurp 75RD drum mag!

A US made muzzle device and fire control group (trigger, hammer and disconnector) are utilized so the rifle is 922(r) compliant even when using foreign magazines.
