What kind of RPK did Arnie have in Commando? It looked like a Valmet RPK with a Dragonov stock.

It is a M78/83S. It is a very rare type of Valmet. There is one on Gun Broker for sale.

The mag on his looked like a 7.62x39..... Were any of them imported? Also whats the deal with the Dragonov stock? Was that for real or just for looks? I remember when I was a kid I thought it looked cool till that 89 ban came along

It's listed as a Valmet M78. But definately shows screen shots of a 7.62x39mm version
