16" barrel?

If I get an RPD it'll be a shorty. Just don't see the reason to lug the extra weight in a semi auto with irons.

I think this is more like 14" barrel or so. With a 16" I believe you are still able to keep the original bipod, which is good idea as it gives a much better stability to the weapon.

The position of the bipod (grip/bipod) is a bit too far back.
The original bipod is a much better choice. On the other hand the smaller package is really appreciated if you are firing standing or kneeling, hence not using the bipod support.

See that the RPD is slighter shorter than the standard AKM - bottom picture.

Anyone have any drawings or dimension info for the location of the scope rail on the Polish RPD?
