i read that Romy G kits are the least worn and were mostly carried. Does that make them more desireable (relatively)?

Are they still available anywhere?

How long until the cheap kits are a thing of the past? Anyone know how the supplies are going?

Romy G kits were used by the equivalent of our national guard. The bores that I have seen are excellent. Many people report that theirs was not even fired. The majority of what I've seen have decent finish, some scratches should be expected. The wood is usually a little rough, but looks excellent if refinished.

I sand blasted, parked, and gun koted 2 kits and then refinished the furniture. They look great, better than any AK you can buy around here.

Below is one of the DPH $89 Romy kits.

As you can see I just finished prepping it and hopefully will finish it this week.



The thing doesnt look like its ever been fired, and for $89 you cant beat the price.

This will be my 2nd Romy build and so far Im impresed by these kits.

Here is a pic of my $200 Romy AK built from parts I got a DPH arms.

It was my first build, the next one will look better

I believe it is the best value for the dollar. When the supply dries up , and it will , I think the cost will double quickly. The rifle pictured above says alot .

Yep, the older kits from the 1970's had the serial numbers stamped in the stocks too.

Here's a little info on the "G" rifles that I've posted in the past...


The orange "G" stands for "Garda" which is Romanian for guard. This past October, I went to the Romanian National Military Museum in Bucharest. The rifles were for the Patriotic Guard and not the regular army. The display for the black banded Patriotic Guard rifles said that they were semi-auto only. All the full auto parts were in the rifle except that the full auto disconnector had the tail ground off which made it fire semi auto only. The Patriotic Guard was mandatory service for all highschool aged kids... girls and boys. Think of it as a combination of the Young Pioneers and the National Guard. Here is a picture of the black banded Patriotic Guard rifle I took at the museum...

I received my DPH Romy kit yesterday... I must say it was flawless! Despite the price jump, I purchased 3 more yesterday from DPH.

Boy I started this new hobby at the wrong time huh?

Nope, you didn't start at the wrong time: Anytime is the right time!

It's going to get much in the future when the kits have to be built with US made barrels.
