Lee Armory Romanian RPK
w/ Nitride Barrels, Nodak Spud Receiver. Wood refinished. The RPK (Ruchnoy Pulemyot Kalashnikova, Russian: Ручной пулемёт Калашникова or “Kalashnikov hand-held machine gun”) is a 7.62×39mm light machine gun of Soviet design, developed by Mikhail Kalashnikov in the late 1950s. Features
The RPK features
a heavier and longer barrel than the AKM, this allows for the weapon to be fired for extended periods without major loss in accuracy due to the barrel heating up. The chrome-lined barrel is permanently fixed to the receiver and cannot be replaced in the field. It is fitted with a new front sight base, the gas block lacks a bayonet lug and an under-barrel cleaning rod guide.
The barrel also features
a folding bipod mounted near the muzzle, and a front sight base with a lug that limits the bipod’s rotation around the axis of the barrel. The barrel has a threaded muzzle, enabling the use of muzzle devices such as flash hiders, compensators, and blank-firing adapters.
When a muzzle device
is not being used, the threads on the muzzle can be covered by a thread protector. The barrel is pinned to the receiver in a modified trunnion, reinforced by ribbing, and is slightly wider than the trunnion used on the standard AKM type rifles. Symmetrical bulges on both sides of the front trunnion ensures a proper fit inside the receiver.
