Hopefully happen soon....
1.5 mm rpk thickness stamped receiver
Rpk bulged forged front trunnion
Forged bolt and carrier properly heat treated
Properly heat tteated and hardened trigger group
RPK mil spec thick barrel diameter
Chrome lined barrel.
999 versus 899 for a wasr 10
No brainer .
Buy the ZPAP.
Change out the shepards hook and put in a hammer and trigger pin retainer plate.
Contour/ round over the hammer bump a little
Install a good ergo grip.
Put a fighter brake on it.
Should run ......
Sounds amazing. I'm looking at the VSKA as well.
I would buy the slightly higher priced Wasr10 built with the right components, CL barrel and properly heat treated running train, properly heat treated receiver, trigger assembly, trunnions, rivet job.
Look at 2 or 3 and pick the straightest one if you have the chance to examine several.
If ya have someone who knows how to break one completely down and inspect one muzzle to butt plate.
Buy him lunch.
Look at your local armlist or gun ads websites for legit ads.
Dont discount low round count used AK,s.
Lots of people are selling excellent rifles with extremely low rd counts in exc condition.
Always bargin face to face after you breakdown and inspect the gun.
You might know way more about the platform than the seller.
Grants and Franklins shown are too much for some of private sellers to resist.
Especially now with desperate for money types.
You might get a smoking deal from a private state resident to state resident sale.
No four four seven three big brother stuff.....
Stay away from any IO
Early run Rileys.
