IIRC; Here are some AKs/AKMs/derivitives of same, that can be found in the USA that came from "real mfgs" - as opposed to assemblers/modifiers of parts kits or other's work. And regardless of calibers....
Pre-ban, some pre-CHICOM bans:
Finn VALMET stamped and milled derivitives
Yugo Zastavan M70 PAPs
Hungarian FEG AKMs
IMI Galils (derived from VALMETs)
Egyptian MAADI AKMs and hybrid CHICOM/Egyptian MISRs
CHICOM Generic, Norinco, PolyTech AKMs and PolyTech "Legend" milled AKs, Norinco milled AKs, various MAK90 types
Post-ban years (legally imported as sporters):
Cugir Romanian WUMs/SARs/ROMAKs/CURs/WASRs/M10s/?? AKMs
Serbian Zastavan "Yugo PAPs"
NON-RIFLES and 922 exempt:
DRACO, DRACO-C, Mini pistols
Serbian Zastavan M92 pistols
Arsenal? "Krink" pistol?
Romy WASR22, AKT98, M10/22 .22LR rifles
If you want a true non-USA-made AK with factory barrel and factory recvr, get something from the above lists.
Else, the rest - are typically parts-bin guns - or "evil" modifications of importable sporters - obviously based on VEPRs, SAIGAs, PAPs, and Romys for the most part.
Polski U/Fs, various Tantals, Arsenals, "Bulgy parts guns", Century Yugos, Tantals, milled Polski, and Golanis - are typically Century USA mixmasters or other USA-assemblies from foreign recvrs with mixmaster parts and US or original barrells - like the Hunky AMDs we see with USA parts and FEG recvrs and barrels, and some of the Polish with Polish recvrs and barrels.
Not that these mix-master AKMs are bad - if anything we now have a variety we never had before!
