    I think that matching numbers make it clear that the metal parts began life as a set. That's what's cool about the kits. From my perspective, "cobbled" referred to a furniture set that is not common to the md86 rifle, but has appeared on other Romanian export firearms.

    I'd be on these kits like a rash (and grateful for the opportunity) if I hadn't invested in the earlier batch. That said, I wouldn't use the black furniture set unless rifles were actually built and sold by contract in that configuration, but that's just my collecting perspective.

    One of these would be great for building a fixed stock Romy 545 with blonde Romy laminate (or solid) palmswell and buttstock, a known export configuration for this rifle. Need to go through my Romy wood box to see if there's something suitable.

    The bolt carriers on these kits have the upswept charging handles, same as I have on my 5.45 INTRAC imported Romanian AK.
    The bolts have the proper extractors for a 5.45 AK.

    I can believe that they were configured like that from the factory. The question is was it for a commercial contract that fell through? Or was it a military or law enforcement contract?

    It these were intended for civilian sales and then a distributor canceled because he felt the stock set was too far from "mil-spec" to be commercially viable then...

    If we had more background on the history it makes these way more interesting. Even if they were originally intended for civilian sales.

    These kits contain 3 round burst fire control parts, we had no indication from the factory POC to our importers Agent (in Romania) that these were for any "civilian sales" or commercial organization.
    The part sets were bagged and packed 2 sets per box,
    The trunnions all look to be marked with a "JJ" prefix serial number and dated 2008.
    I don't know if any rifles were ever delivered and the contract was cancelled, or if these kits were just an overrun.
    The Romanians didn't want to talk about the history of these, and the importers agent said he was encouraged not to ask.

    This lot has been in storage long enough for the facility manager to want them sold off.
    We paid the price they stated and bought them all, waited for them to be flown in and clear US Customs.
    We are planning to take 5-15 of them down to stock for parts.

    pretty neat.
    the way the components and trunnion are drilled for pins makes me think they were assembled at one point.
    not that it makes a difference i guess. any actual virgin parts i wouldnt have thought would have been drilled.
    ussially just a shallow sort of pilot hole is in the pin location to get you started.

    Certainly from demilled rifles. The barrel pins have been drilled, for Pete's sake!

    Call them "newish" or "excellent"--whatever--but they are not "NOS."

    I am not saying I know all the detailed info, but I do know what a new part in my hand looks like VS a demilled kit part.

    ....the pictures do show all the holes drilled...
    no virgin part ive ever seen offered has holes drilled.
    either the picture is a mistake or the description maybe?

    On another note, I like collecting early and late production examples. If anyone would like one of the earlier md86 parts sets (perfect 1990) I'll trade the metal parts for one of these '08s in the same condition (no furniture or TG in the trade), let's discuss.

    Can anyone confirm of these AIM-74 bolts are interchangeable with a WASR2 bolt? I'm sure it'll have to be re-headspaced and I think the bottom lug is slightly different size, but I thought it was worth seeing if this could be a replacement for my Wasr-2.
