Thanks.
Well, the kits have to all be handled and checked.
I would like to think they will be listed by days end on Wednesday.
However, I know how it goes!
Please watch the APEX web site or you can subscribe for an e-mail notification when the kits go back into stock.

I got my kit today.

Damn was I impressed. I got one of the last of the first shipment and it was 400 the all matching was 425. The only mismatched part was the recoil assembly and the fcg looks like it may have had a mag through it.

I suck at pics or I would post them

The numbers stamped into the wood are sweet too.

Awesome kit

Ohhhh yeah I also found a golden ticket for 25 bucks the camo sticker and and an apex gun cloth.
Always love the apex swag

The other forum has a temp sticky unification thread to try and match up the recoil rods which are the only thing that does not match on a lot of these kits.
I read of one person who was able to match up one.

I think that ticket is going to force me to get another kit of some kind.

You guys should get your importers to check with places like Colombia and El Salvador for parts kits. From my years of reading Soldier of Fortune, it looks like they should have hundreds of East German Russian, and Cuban AK's in storage.

The importers are very familiar with South America.
Two limiting factors.
You cannot import from a country on the US DoS list of proscribed countries, and not every Gov't is wanting to part with there firearms.

This shipment didn't have as many fully matched kits as the last shipment.
So, we still have kits with the main parts matched, such as the bolt, front trunnion & bolt carrier, but one or two other parts either don't match or in the case of the wood handguards the inside serial number has been removed.
We may list some of those, but the plan has been to use these kits to restock the parts bins.
Contact CS is one of these kits is of interest.

Wait wha?!!??! How could they have been sold out before they hit the website??!!? I never even saw them hit the website. I was told to watch the website and now they're gone in 30 mins!!?!?

How is that.....wait.....no..... wait wha!?!?

If this is true, I feel my human rights to own an all matching EGAK47 kit has been civilly, morally, criminally and sexually violated!! Next thing your going tell me is that the camo stickers are all gone, too?!

I checked the website at 4:10 and got one even though I had problems with my credit card going through probably because it was in my cart. Back in stock email was sent at 4:12 Malev's post he got one was at 4:21. So they were not sold out before they hit the website. Mine shipped today cant wait for it to arrive. Thanks APEX. Just dont tell my wife HAHA.

Josh really, REALLY liked handling these EG Kits.
He sorted a number of them himself, in the back on the workbench.

I think the APEX FaceBook page holds the answer to the sticker question.
You probably have to scroll down a bit.

Got my kit last night.


[IMG]http://s1.************/l1ynylgbj/IMAG2062.jpg[/IMG]






But for fuck's sake, could you guys wrap plastic parts in a piece of paper? You got plastic parts loose with steel parts which doesn't lead to "very nice kits" staying that way, plus a cleaning rod was sticking half way out of my package ... I'm sure it was happy to see me, but I don't like bent or scratch parts if that could be avoided.

not mine, I got a couple of kits, both had plastic bobbing with all the metal parts. Only wooden handguards are in their own plastic bag. I get it, it's holidays and people rush with packing. Don't rush.

No more East German kits are available from the importer.
Another company bought what remained.

I should have some parts to sell.

Any chance there will be any more of these East German kits for sale in the near future? Looks like I missed out on them end of last year. Seems every few years there are some that pop up for sale, so they can not be super rare.
