I've owned a couple AKs in the past and kinda had the itch to get another. So I stopped at one of our local shops today and saw this gently used beauty. It's a Century Arms (I know, I know) AES-10B RPK. It is a genuine RPK made at the Cugir factory in Romania. Not one of these pieced together atrocities that came out on the market years prior to this one. (Heavy Bbl, thicker receiver, proper bi-pod etc.) The fit and finish is what you'd expect from an AK variant. It's a whole lot tighter than the WASR-10's anyway. I haven't shot it yet, but after the Garand Match this weekend I'm hoping to run a couple hundred rounds through it. Then my project next week is to refinish the wood. Any RPK owners in the house? I'd be curious to know how the club butt stock comes off. On all AKs I've owned in the past there was a hole under the cover that you could pry the wood out once the screws have been removed. No such luck with a rubber mallet either.
