    Wow these look cool! Does anyone know if the original Romanian receivers had the pistol grip reinforcing plates like the Polish? Want to order a Childers to go with the kit

    No - The design of the Romanian UF rear trunnion provides support for the receiver from the inside. Neat design/solution - probably to avoid some license cost to the Russians at the time. The only detriment is more metal means more weight.

    FWIW - You can easily use the UF trunnion in a standard AKM receiver. Once riveted in place you can use the UF trunnion holes to locate the receiver holes for the stock axle. I did this with my Draco-C SBR UF.

    The advantage with that method is you can specifically fit the trunnion to the receiver - looks a little cleaner. Sometimes parts have variences in hole locations.






    Took a long time to find that lightly used KVAR import late UF blonde laminate handguard - but I was persistent.

    Dat wood!

    That looks fantastic! What is the plate under the pistol grip in your build?

    Thanks!

    The plate is just there to attach a sling - just sandwiched into place by the grip.

    Despite my affinity for underfolders I am left handed and have not found a perfect option to sling them the way I prefer.

    You mentioned the UF Dong as being "late", what period would you call this. As I understand it there are at least 2 major production level variations of UF reverse-dongs, am I correct? Please answer Senpai.

    The short answer is the late 1990's for the specific type in my 2nd picture.

    I recall KVAR advertising these blonde laminate pieces in the late 1990's. The finish seems nicer than any that were military issue - perhaps KVAR of the time ordered them that way. I know I still have SGN issues that have the ad, but they are not handy.

    Some of the first blonde - though really more of a Norinco light orange - laminate palmswell handguards I've seen were on 1991 and later underfolders.

    The early reverse dongs don't have the tension spring on the front that press against the LHG retainer. I believe the md 65 were all early style, and they started the late stlyle with the md 90's

    *Edit* I confused myself. At some point they transitioned from the early to late, but it was still the model md65.

    I surmise the front tension spring was in use by 1977 or so - presuming that mod was adopted for the MD65 at the same time it was applied to the Md63 models.

    Maybe if/when people start posting pics of their kits we can make a better determination.


    I asked a while back if a late Romanian Underfolder was considered an MD90 - the general consensus was that it was still considered an MD65 - just with late features.
    Post 1990 Romanian Underfolder - is it an Md90 or an Md65?


    I'm betting this batch spans from the 1960's to the 1980's.

    Comparatively speaking vs other kits on the US market in years past, I would certainly say uncommon.

    I did not hesitate to buy one. Last time I saw one for sale, it was 2 1/2 to 3 years ago when I sold mine, and regretted it ever since.
