For me, it is the fact that it is built on a (dimpled) receiver that was born accepting standard capacity mags. I have only had one WASR and its mag well was wonky. That and so many WASR's are neutered.

Doesn't matter, homie don't respond to emails (not mine anyway) so...

Either finishing my own Romy kit or going PSAK.

Not parts kits..80% receivers and even then good luck with that. Parts kits are just a kit of parts and useless (for building a rifle) unless you have a receiver. Do something about it like contacting reps, I have..including reps in states I dont even live in.

Best of luck, AKGuy. The more options, the better.

No, I didn't.
I'd like to see a review on one though.

I don't really question the parts.
My interest is more in the quality of the build and who is doing them.

Rommy parts kits have proof marks on most of the parts I believe.

I couldve sworn he was using the virgin Romanian kits that are availible now. In that case there will be no proofs, no serials, not even tolerance numbers except the barrel.

Virgin Romanian parts kits, but still an American receiver right?

At just shy of $1,000 after shipping and FFL (possibly tax), that seems a bit steep if not at least a Romanian receiver blank as well.

He is starting up in this market?

I just hope he won’t pull off a DDI and screw over buyers.

I don't know, man, kinda seems right by my math -

Romy Kit with orig bbl - 550
U.S. Receiver - 80
Cerakote - 160
Build service - ?????

And those figures are for a previously issued rifle, this is brand new. I used the price of a kiy w/orig bbl because Brandon says he's using chf/cl bbls

Only $80 for a 100% receiver?

What IF their using flats & bending their own receivers?

You make a good argument.

All in all, I'd take a WASR all day over this but I am beginning to see where there could be a legitimate market for this if the price dropped a smidgeon.

I reached out and asked the question.
Trying to maybe look into these.
I might sell something to acquire one if I get some correspondence.
Maybe, nothing for sure.
I've ALWAYS bought imports, or built only NOS imported parts on a milled CNCW.

Plz let us know if he answers you. I have yet to get a response from about 3 emails, the first being almost 2 weeks ago. Makes me feel a lil hesitant about sending a handful of money out ya kno.
