Seems they cut down the barrel, added a poor 74 brake copy and slapped $140 unto the price.

IMO, until you refinish a Romy, it's never going to be that impressive no matter what you do to the barrel.

If rapid fire did it then it is surely a bargain! Remember you are getting a Park Job!

Considering the SAR AKs are beginning to dry up....I would take one.....

Remember, you can never have enough AKs.

Sorry Mike, But it is a lousy picture...and I didnt know you did that kind of work for the bigger distrubuters...Since it is a ORF conversion I wouldnt think twice bout buying one..

Since we are on the subject, Did you guys do the Bulgy 74s for Atlantic as well?

My wife's opinion differs a bit on that one.

One important thing to remember here also my friends.

With a Rapid Fire built rifle, YOU WILL GET CUSTOMER SERVICE in the unlikely event that your rifle has a problem. No answering service, no run around, and you will get to talk to the person who ACTUALLY BUILDS THE RIFLES.

Come up with a way to easily and economically cut down the cleaning rods to fit the rifle and let Rapid Fire know about it, and you will see them with the rifles.

No, that pic of the 74 belongs to the one and only Hesse Arms. Ask me how I know!

probably forgot to put it in when they took the picture....although, I can't tell if it's just the way they cropped the picture, or if they actually cut the lug complete off where the rod slide through.

in any case, if you ever tried to put acleaning rod in with that 74 break on, you'll know it isn't quite as easy as putting one with a slant break.

The cleaning rod lugs were removed because the rod has to have a couple inches cut off, rendering it useless. I don't recall building any 74's for them.

Looks decent 2 me, but why does everyone insist on using that poorly copied AK brake? For like $20 more you could probably get a batch of 2-piece Bulgi copies without the threads from Chris @ AK-USA (I'm assuming those are welded on).

take care,
