    That's very interesting. Never heard of those rifles before. Nice kit, perhaps a little pricy, but then its also a unique item.

    Very interesting indeed...

    That 4-pc black synthetic stock set is identical to the original stock set found on the Romanian AKT-98 .22 rifles.

    I had a feeling it was random parts put together. But I could be wrong

    Hmm.

    I wonder if separate sets of the side-folding AIMS-74 hand guards, grips, and stocks will show up for sale.

    Maybe they're trying to get rid of these:
    https://www.apexgunparts.com/romania...mer-black.html

    I can imagine we'll see those AIMS-74 stocks on the market in a little. At first, I suspected they had used the AIMS-74 stocks for their MD90 commando kits, but the commando kits have lever folders instead of the button ones that came with the AIMS-74 (or at least my AoA one is a button folder). Guess I'll have to revisit the drawing board for that one. Maybe they got the kits without furniture?

    They're definitely cobbled together - kind of funny, really - but most likely by the Romanians, not our friends at Apex.

    If they were for a special contract that fell through, it would be interesting to get more details on that. Also, if any samples or partial orders were filled in this configuration it would be nice to know where they went to.

    If these are cobbled together then they are not that interesting. If there is a good story that can be validated then these are very interesting.

    WOW, numbers matching part set from the factory, and the term "cobbled together" gets used?
    REALLY?

    NOS Romanian AK-74 factory parts, bagged up and boxed in pairs about 10 years ago.
    This isn't the start of a flood of these parts.
    I am being told that 5.45X39 barrels are not even in production any longer in Romania.
    That seems like a good indicator of that types of AK's they intend to produce in the future.

    Are the charging handles on the carrier swept upwards like the AIMS kits?

    Interesting. Definitely the same run, or damn close to it!
