Glad to see the noboma sale is over! That price is back down to pre-November 2008 craziness.

That Romey is the model I have and I love it!



My ugly duckling as it came out of the box. Mine came with the stock but a replacement for the wood is a DIY project requiring only $.

There is any amount of bling you can find to fix her up!



Here she is as an inside-the-wire zombie slayer.



Or as a scout.

Your choice is a good start, it has the optics rail mount.

Lose the poly-mags, they are worthless and find some eastern block steel mags and you will be good to go.

If you get this Romey, PM me before you jump on the accessory wagon. I can save you a ton of $ with all the shopping I've done and provide you feedback on the parts I've purchased and am happy.

Also there are some non-aesthetic improvements you should make to the Romey before the bling.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Cane, post that up please (especially the non-aestheticaly stuff); my buddy will also be interested & is forum-impaired. He had the opposite experience with metal mags; the plastic ones work better for his. I wonder if they milled out too much when they converted his from singlestack to doublestack???

Most Romanians you come across will be of CAI build, despite not being the top of the line as far as quality control, fitting, etc. . . It's hard to totally screw up an AK, especially if that's your gig. CAI's are sometimes a little rough, scratches, loose mag fit, tough to sight, etc., but nothing that can't be fixed pretty easily. These are good guns.

I've personally been scoping out the Lancaster's for my next AK, especially because they now offer "stainless steel match grade barrels" on any rifle, for only $22 extra. Now I can't tell you how much of a difference this would make regarding accuracy. . . I just don't know I've read mostly good, few (but existent, mostly cosmetic) bad reviews and think they would definitely be a big step up from a CAI or other like build. I've only shot one Lancaster, its been a while, but I do remember the feel (good) and they will deliver 10"-12" groups off a knee, prone, sandbag, etc. But, this was a 7.62, I believe, so the '74 may deliver more?

Ahhhhhhhh. . . . . C'mon man! ! ! Don't spend time to scrounge it up! ! ! Just borrow $$$ or rack up a credit card. There are plenty of Romy's and other origins available right now, just get a decent one and you can always build on it. AK's have a charm about them. . . they just feel good.

That is a great deal on a great AK, I work in a gun store and even with my employee discount, I still had to give $485 for my romy.
