    Detailed pics of my WUM 1

    Here are some HD pics of my Wum 1 Romanian AKM rifle.
    This is after about 500 rounds of ammo shot through it by me after getting it.

    If anyone see's anything that I might not have seen, please chime in. I just wanted to share this information on this rare AKM rifle. Thanks

    What is the serial number format?

    I ask because there were multiple imports of the WUM1s. And one of them were actually made by the Sadu factory, when every other Romy AK ever imported into the US has been done by Cugir (not counting a few oddball WASR10 types).

    As far as I know, the WUM1s were the only semi autos ever imported from Sadu. Everything else since have been Cugir, and a few oddballs that are/were made by a non Military factory.

    So is that the reason behind that strange safety, being boxed & pinned not the standard keyhole style safety you see on other AKM rifles. I have been told that most of mine is original, even the trigger that was in it was Romanian.

    I didn't know that, I thought that 922r shit came with Clinton when he started the assault rifle ban crap. Even thought we don't have any assault rifles.

    Hi AKrunner,

    A little while back you had asked me if I had any further information on the WUM I since I also had one, all be it in kit form unfortunately. Well I do have some history to add to what you have already learned from member Stottman. With the permission of member Phillippes I will share some of this info in the form of direct passages from "The Kalashnikov Encyclopedia" by Dr. Cor Roodhurst. After sharing this with you I would highly recommend purchasing both a set of these encyclopedias as well as i full set of Rob Stottmann's reference books in either hard copy or epubs format as these are about the best reference material you will find in this hemisphere on the AK platform. So here we go with direct quotes from the afore mentioned "Kalashnikov Encyclopedia" volume II, pages 1881 and 1885.




    I hope you find this helpful, and as I said please consider supporting our members who work so hard to provide us this valuable information. Supporting them is supporting our entire membership and all the AK enthusiasts and collectors around the world.
    Once again thank you Phil, and Rob for your tireless efforts on our behalf1

    Take care,
    will6970

    The Kalashnikov encyclopedia's info is basically the tip of the ice berg and only covers the first imports by InterOrdnance which are from Cugir. They have the PSL style rear end and modern style scope rail. IO's are related to the Euro market WUM1s. Remember that IO is actually a European company with an office in Ferlach, Austria.
