Sorry if someone has already posted a link to this sale, Im not sure how long its been posted.

Sorry in advance if this is in fact an RPK. I dont know much about RPK's, but in all the pictures Ive looked at the receiver doesnt look like a normal stamped receiver. All the ones Ive seen have an indent on each side of the receiver next to the barrel. (http://i2.tinypic.com/r29p4z.jpg) (http://www.sovietarmy.com/small_arms/rpk-74_icon.jpg) (http://military.sakura.ne.jp/army/rifle/ur/rpk.jpg) One of those pictures is of a VEPR, but since it uses a modified RPK type, its close enough.

I could be wrong, but to me that looks like a converted WASR high-cap (doesnt have dimples for the mag), with an RPK style buttstock, bipod, and a carry handle welded/attached to it. That doesnt appear to be a RPK type receiver.

All for the price of $650.00? With the scope like $790.00?


If it really is a RPK I can understand the price, but if that is a tricked out WASR, that is one expensive 2MOA "Counter-Sniper" system.

it appears to be one of the latest Romanian imports, which is an RPK STYLE rifle, hence the lack of dimples. not sure if they are using a beefed-up receiver on these.

It says an RPK type AK, not an ak type RPK. Its not false advertising, he's just telling what its dressed up like.
