Holy shit is that expensive! I love RPK's and that one is definitely rare but I can think of a lot better things to do with that kind of money. If I was filthy rich it would be one thing but I'm not so I'm gonna pass on that one...

Looking at it closer it might be possible to clone it if that FSB could be found. It looks like it has a non bulged front trunnion so a standard AK receiver should work but I'm not sure about the rivet pattern on the front trunnion, it looks familiar but I can't put my finger on it. If it's a special pattern then it's no biggie, just get a receiver that doesn't have the rivet holes drilled and then drill the receiver and front trunnion to match the pattern in the pic.

Yeah stupid money but not why I posted.

It’s just kinda neat to see something so different
Their akms are straight copy’s of China’s but this thing isn’t.

I saw them in Yugoslavia in the 1990's.

They are Chinese based and similar to the NHM-91 and there are several variations.

Some have Chinese style / milled receiver shaped stocks and some have AKM shaped stocks.

Different front ends on the barrels.

Is the gas block moved forward with a long gas piston and tube?

Interesting sanitized FSB, long gas tube and longer piston...

So, are these(any Albanian AK) made in Albania or imported from China?*

*answered in the description: Polican Aresenal, definitely Albania.

Albania had some unusual chicom Kalashnikov knock-offs.
