Do you mean the "AES-10B AK RPK TYPE SNIPER RIFLE" about 1/3 of the way down the page at Classic Arms?

I've never heard of anyone calling any kind of RPK a "sniper rifle" - there it is, though, on Classic Arms' website. That's the only place I've even seen one. It appears to have no dimples and looks like a WASR with a longer barrel.

The Yugo ones look nicer to me, and I've held one of those in a local gun shop - really nice fit and finish, believe it or not (it is also made by Century like the Yugo M70s, and Century isn't known for nice fit or finish).

+1 on the Yugo RPK, much heavier and very well built....

i just picked up one all I can say is great rifle i dont think you will be disapointed
I picked my Thursday from Classic i got rid of a chicome Mak-90 to get it
not a bad deal the only gripe is the little bit of mag wobble ant the bipode leg's
are not as long as the one that was in my kit i got 3 years ago

it still cost more to build a rommie kits than to buy the rifle

It's built on an RPK receiver, which doesn't have "dimples".

You see WASR? Where see WASR? No see WASR!

Russian RPK 7.62x39 with no dimples (Photo credit to Stottman). I believe older RPKs had dimples and later ones didn't.... don't quote me on that.

If I ever see one of those at a gunshow, I won't be able to resist it...
