Got a flyer in the mail form centerfire systems adv. these and AMD 63 $129.97. Looks like the romaks come with everything including bayo., except receiver and mag.
Now, I thought I was cured of my addiction to aquire but I sure would love to have a semi in 7.62x54. Could somebody tell me what kind of receiver the romak would need?
I think my addiction will allow me to pass on the AMD 63 since I haven't started my 65 kit, and I was going to build it like the 63 because of the ban on folding stocks.

This has been batted around a little bit on the AK-47.net forum, this might help

Best bet would be to talk to one of the smiths that hang around here and see if it can be adapted to a milled receiver.

The reciever didn't need to be elongated in any way I'm aware of. The Romanians chose to take advantage of the fact that the AK already operates "excessively" for the x39 round, and needs little modification to use the longer round.

I think it has something to do with the extra-long stroke operation and the roomy receiver.

This here: Interordnance SSG-97 is a Romak-3, yeah?

If so, it can be had for $700, brand new, with a 10-round and a 5-round magazine.

I was suprised that someone was offering kits, didn't think there was too much market in them.

Now, an SVD kit?? Mmmmmm...

And a scope, which puts the rifle at about $550.
It will be interesting to see how much value there is after the creation of a RPK grade receiver.
--no gas system to clean, cheap milsurp corrosive ammo, good scount mounts for 4x scopes, sticking with mosins for now

Yep, I bought one of these (SSG-97) for one of my brothers.
