Arrow East German AKM kits...

For those APEX customers that like East German AKM's, here is some good news.
APEX is expecting a small shipment of matching East German AKM kits.
Once they are delivered I will know more about just how many parts match, condition, etc.
The importer has given me a good rundown, but we have our own process that we do to each kit prior to sale.
Keep an eye on the APEX web site for this new kit listing.

Richard

Do you know what grade these kits are in? Excellent or good?

According to the importer these kits are "nice" with at least three major parts matching (bolt, bolt carrier & front trunnion)
Nothing is ground off and re-numbered.
These kits are fully disassembled, so no receiver or barrel bits are attached to the trunnion, gas block, trigger guard etc.
Lower handguards are most likely the wood ones like the kits APEX sold years ago.
Until they are in my warehouse I won't have any real details.
We did NOT buy a lot so didn't travel to inspect the material before purchase.

That is a look into the past!
I first listed MPi-KM East German AKM Sanitized Parts Set $250 at APEX Gun Parts..WAY BACK in October 2010!
They sold out in March 2012
The East German AK47 MPi-KM Parts Kit, Matching $275 at APEX were listed in January 2011.
The matching kits were sold out long before all the sanitized kits were gone.

You know, back then we never had very many of either type.
I am only buying a small batch again.
Some of which will be used to restock the parts bins.

My warehouse people are primed and ready to receive these kits and get them ready for sale. Besides the matched parts we will take a look at the years of the kits that we receive.

APEX will only have about 40 actual kits to sell in this shipment, so not many to look thru if you are seeking something in particular.

I have been kicking around picking one of these up. Glad I will be able to give you guys my business.

Still using the note book I got in the swag bag you gave me at Knob creek. Thanks for giving me a deal on the yugo and drum mags.

Are you going to be sending out an e-mail when they get in?

If the East German DDR kits are up before Wednesday next week, then they will be mentioned in the Next APEX E-NEWS.
I expect that someone will share the news on the forums before I get a chance to post about it, no matter how FAST I am someone always beats me to the posting!

Sorry Apex ; Centerfire took info for back order on their EG kits even though the website says something different . I still picked up one from Apex , if Centerfire calls back I'll have to get two.

The importer claims to be getting low on the supply, so someone must have bought a bunch.
Friday I will see if we are going to buy any more of these kits.

No matter what, next week APEX should have 4-6 of the DDR MPi-KM kits in very good condition.
I didn't have time Wednesday to create another listing so..it will happen next week.

Sorry that we did not get the 4 VG-matching kits listed today.
I do have some excellent kits that are not as fully matched as the kits we sold out of, call if they are of interest.
The good news is that we did order another batch from the importer.
AND, we went easy again and only ordered 50.
We are buying a lot of stuff right now from a variety of sources!

I do expect about the same condition and mix of years as the last batch.
As always these will be handled/sorted/graded before they go up for sale.


>>>>>>>>>Any chance of 5.45 kits? <<<<<<<<<<<<<

The importer spent 3 years making this deal happen.
I have been hearing about them for a while now.
There is no talk of 5.45 ANYTHING being available.

APEX has a bunch of 5.45 barrels so really wish someone had kits that needed them.

just placed the order for one of the last kits of this batch. $415 shipped.
I guess it will have a few non matched numbers, probably should have waited until the next batch but my impulses got the better of me.

I want to thank Apex for working with me on this. They gave me a call as soon as they came up for sale.

Thanks APEX, Always give you my business if possible.

The VG condition matching kits were listed today and all were purchased.
We still have some excellent kits in the warehouse, they just do not have as many parts matched.
The main/key parts will have matched numbers (bolt/front trunnion/bolt carrier)
Call my Customer Service if one of these kits is of interest.

They are only available thru calling Customer Service.

Another batch of 50 has been shipped today, so I would expect to list them next week.
