I see lots of underfolder Polish AKMS kits still around.
But no fixed stock Polish AKM kits.

Anyone know of some in stock?

Polish trash cans are my favorite.

Pretty.

You can always get a Polish AKMS kit, sell the UF trunnion and stock assembly, and replace it with a fixed stock trunnion and stock of your choice.

I thought of that.
But I'd like a matching kit.

Also, what's the word on the new Polish barrels coming out of the Radom factory?

They're chrome lined, hammer forged barrels.
But the kits I've seen that included them don't seem to sell very quickly.

How are they getting Polish barrels in country?

ETA: Or is the barrel ban just for demilled kits?

They are "sporter" barrels.

The Polish made the prettiest AK's.
Then the Russians.

There's just something about their wood furniture.

Atlantic Firearms makes a nice Polish AK. Unfortunately, most of the parts kits ran out last year and they had to start using more new parts. Still gets great reviews...

Its chromed, but haven't shot it yet.

Haven't shot either of my AK's for that matter.

All I've read about them is that they were preferred over a WBP.

Only parts. The kits are wooden boxes like this:



Sportsman's Guide sold them for 99$ and APEX also sold them but for $125.

IIRC, there were at least 2 variations of contents. The boxes have a lead seal so I don't know what's in mine (3 or 4 kits). Some people parted out the kits but most are keeping them as collectors pieces.





If you google, there are a lot of pictures out there.

ETA: I placed an order for more kits but the order was cancelled.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 10:00:19 PM EST
I also have a VZ-61 armorer's kit, including the 5 barrels that were missing from the imported kits due to the barrel ban. I waited 1 1/2 years checking every day when Czechpoint USA would get them back in stock so I could buy the 5 barrels.







I also have 2 CZ-52 kits.

I don't like building because it's cheaper.

I really enjoy building firearms.

You can get a barreled kit from Royal Tiger Imports for $300.

Thank you.

Vector used to build Polish underfolders but many also had some Bulgarian parts mixed in. The ones I bought were parkerized with polymer furniture. They would look better with original furniture and the proper finish, but you would need the proper parts count to do that.

Too bad about the barrel ban. That made things more difficult.

I'm assuming that you swapped out the gas piston to keep the original wood.
Was this difficult?
