    Post Hello

    Hi, I'm Aries. I joined this forum to ask questions about and talk about AK's.

    Guns I've looked at are the AES-10B and the AKM. Though, most AK's are AK-47's. It seems kind of hard to find good looking RPK-style AK's like the AES-10B though. I don't mean just looks, but I mean how the build quality itself looks. Most of the reasons why I'd get a AES-10B is because it has a longer barrel, a bipod, and can take drum mags / ak mags. But I guess that's for later.

    It sucks that the AKS-74U (or AK-74U) is too short for rifles, would pick up one of those quick. I love those things.

    Welcome!

    if you're looking for an RPK style rifle, then look for a VEPR. They bascially start with an RPK and then make it more like an AKM style.

    If your looking for an RPK, ie longer barrel and bipod, then the AES10B is probably your best option if you can find one.

    Yeah, I would prefer an AES-10B. I just don't know a whole lot about the brands with those. Romanians seem the most common. I know the list is roughly Bulgarian > Romanian > Russian...

    you've got, IMO, the Romanian in the wrong spot.

    All 3 are equally reliable, but as far as fit and finish Russian = Bulgarian > Romanian. Romanian are pretty rough looking compared to most, but like I said, they're all equally reliable.

    If your talking availability, then Romy > Bulgy > Rus, they are definitely easier to find.

    thank you

    Do you know if the Lee Classic turret press can do 7.62x39? Would be nice to have one press for all the different kind of boolet. I read something about max cartridge size being 3.3", but I don't know.

    Any other suggestions on multi-caliber presses would be nice (pistol & rifle press)

    The most practical (to find and own) true RPK-type rifle in 7.62x39, and the only one you will find for under $1500, is the AES10B. This rifle is specifically Romanian, similar rifles were made in other Soviet Bloc countries, but this is the only one ever imported commercially to the US (with the exception of some oddball long-barreled Chinese variants).

    All that said, hang around here a bit and learn before you make your first AK buy, there are more interesting and affordable starter AK rifles.

    You cannot reload 7.62x39 ammo as cheap as you can buy it commercially-made so I wouldn't worry too much about that at this stage.

    I can organize and sell your Commbloc weapon/parts/accessory collection
    if you lack the time or desire; send a PM if interested.

    Really? I figured reusing shells would make it at least somewhat cheaper.
