Keep an eye out, M72 Yugo would be easy way to start. Russian is kind of rare.. I think AoA still has Romy M64 kits. I see Bulgy RPK s on gun jokers from time to time.

Ordered an RPK from LegionUSA.
Got $200.00 off, with sale starting today.

That pushed me over.
Getting a 1961, first year of RPK production.

They now have 3 left:
1966
1967
1969

Can't wait.

Those Md64's over at Atlantic are very nice. Also, as an alternative you can get a M72 kit from Numrich for only $250 and have a reputable builder build it for you. I'm leaning towards getting an Md64 kit from AOA and having Two Rivers Arms build mine.

That's a good looking rifle. I like the crate as well, nice touch.

Shot the RPK today.
Initial zeroing, fun day, but really tight groups.
Pinging the steel plates at 200 yards, every shot.
Of course, I had to run a 75 round drum!
Love it!
