Hello folks,

Ok, I been googling and searching to find info on these for hours and nothing solid. What is the difference between Mitchell Arms import Model AK 47 and Model RPK 47? Please help. Thanks.

Im talking about preban only. So just the side rail? Nothing else?

On pre-89, the receiver will be marked either "MODEL AK-47" (M70/M77 non-LMG) or "MODEL RPK-47" (M70/M72/M77 LMG)--- I believe that the latter had the rails!!!

Zero difference between the two, just nomenclature. While Mitchell imported both M70 and M72 rifles that should have been marked appropriately, the folks at Zastava just grabbed a receiver out of the bin and assembled the rifle. You can find either rifle with either marking and with or without a side rail.

Exactly what Kittrell said. I have a fixed m70 style marked rpk47 and a m72 marked ak47....and seen them the opposite ways plenty. I just happened to get them in the opposite order of what they should be but it's kind of cool to me.
