    What a looker. That’s my idea of a Romanian mail-order bride! I like mine with larger mags though. 🙂

    Do I have to guess what caliber it is?

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      All parts 1969 date — gotta be 7.62 X 39, no?

      1. avatar jwm says:

        No doubt. But this is a gun blog. Some basic info posted, such as caliber, might be helpful to the less experienced amongst us.

        1. avatar Ralph says:

          Indeed. BTW, I recently read a review of the same type of RPK (I’m considering the purchase of one). The review had to be 5000 words, very detailed, but not one single word about caliber. And because of the date, it could have been 7.62 or 5.45.

    That is the cleanest RPK I’ve seen in a long time. I really dig those things, except when they’re sending rounds my way.

    God the RPK was a pain in my ass. It seemed like every Pashtun in Afghanistan had an uncle with one shooting at me.
    At least It’s not a PKM.

      I know where you’re coming from, but I can’t begin to describe how much I’d love to have a Toyota Hilux with a mounted PKM in the back.

      1. avatar jwm says:

        Hell, I’d just like the unAmericanized Toyota. The mg would just be gravy on the mashed taters.

        Crap, now I gotta go and unhurt the feelings of my 4runner.

    Now that is nice

    Kicking myself for not scooping one up when they were commonly available.
