Yeah.... I drive a jeep.
Well...if you want to compare rifles to cars, let talk about the BMW

Series 1 in not Series 3
Series 5 in not Series 7

If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a look to the BMW official page, then you'll might understand why I'm so ''pedantic''....

I figured that I would share a picture of my Romainian AK.

Can you get a "real" Russian AK-47 thats converted to semi-auto?
In a word, no.

Very few real, milled-recvr, Russian-made select-fire AK-47's made it in-country before the GCA68 ended foreign-made full-auto for private civilian consumption. Same for any possible real, Russian-made select-fire "AKMs".
That's why enlisteds were busted en masse when they returned from Grenada and the ATF and Customs swarmed them. But I digress...

The few pre-GCA68 AK-47s or AKMs that are transferable on F4s between civvies are stoopidly expensive even if found for sale.

Sadly the GCA68 also ended the long tradiition of war trophies for our servicemen/women. Now they can only bring back politically correct knick-knacks instead of capture guns. But I digressed again...

Anyway; full auto "AKs" that CAN be had for less than the price of your kidney would be one of the semi's that were converted into select-fire before May 1986, when the "86 MG ban" on ALL new mfg full-autos was snuck into law by our corrupt govt.

These converted guns are almost always based on the then-plentiful CHICOM "AK-pattern" Norcs and PolyTechs or the occasional Italian "AK-22" that were once abundant. I wouldnt be surprised if converted Yugo M70s, Steyr MAADIs, or FEG Hunkies were also done pre-May 86.

Regardless - NFA is a whole nother stratosphere thanks to our corrupt govt and their illegal laws.

What many have tried to do was to obtain "PLO capture" AK parts kits, and then have them built up to resemble Russki guns under the thought that most PLO weapons would be Soviet pattern. You end up with a 922-compliant semi-auto "Russian clone".

That said, Romania was the main Russian puppet and most prolific exporter of Soviet-pattern AKMs - so make any assumptions you wish with a Romy SAR-1.

I'm just going to start calling them glocks, then fund out if the local gun store thinks I'm stupid and tries to take advantage of me.

I am thinking that in time you will want to get a silencer for that AK.
