Not DDR but as close as I'll probably ever get, a Romey "G" kit dressed up. I'm thinking of getting a Hungarian kit and doing it up like this one, maybe a sidefolder too.
I don't know what it is, but I really like the MPiKM.

If you check out...
As my Genossen and myself in the UK depict Various Armies of the Warsaw Treaty Organisation at Military Shows since the mid 1990's ,if you have an question on how the NVA did things ,maybe we can help, we have sources and various " Historical Documents" to assist this Historic mission..
I was asked to post this on the East German sector of the Forum, you fellows have some nice gear , I hope I can assist in some way to the sum Forum knowledge.
Well I just picked up a Vector side folder today, Armory USA receiver and built on an excellent all matching Polish kit.
It has an early DDR crutch side folder. I installed DDR handguards and a pistol grip.
Pictures will follow........it's a very impressive build for the money.
Alright Tim!I'm anxious to see the pics
I picked up a SAR 2 Saturday,yesterday I changed out the FSB and installed AIM furnature but the brake I have is styled after the Russian/East German type but with 22mm threads.I changed it over to EG stock set,it looks alot better!

Ok, this is I guess more Maadi'ish than DDR, these pics were done last night before I changed out the stock set for DDR.
I like it!
I bought this at a show a few back, it was a Vector build, but it was built on a 71' K3 East German Kit.
Here is my 1979 E. German kit from JoeKen that I built on a Tapco Flat. The stocks are new, unnissued ones to replace the crap that came with the kit. This was a $99 kit and was the last one so I had no choices.

I am a newbie. But glad to share.
Look what I found at the Salvadorean Army Museum (Central America)
An East German MPi-KM with a folding stock exactly like the one I had during the war years. The one I had was a trophy taken from a comunist mercenary when they were trying to blow up a bridge. It was given to me by an Army officer who was a friend of mine (who dispatched the guy). After the peace treaty I gave him the rifle back to him as it was dangerous to have a full auto at home. stupid me! Please don't blame me!
I fired a lot with this MPi-KM and... being a tall big size guy, I found that the stock was too short for me. Quality construction is supperb. This Germans really know how to build rifles. The color finish was not black on the rifle. It was a little brown exactly as shown in the picture of this one. 40 round magazines were common with EG AKs. All other variants in El Salvador (Hungarian, Russian, North Korean) were issued with 30 round mags.
The picture is not correctly footnoted.... It says origin: Russia. Manufactured 1947. Is not right it!!! is East German and manufactured during the 70's probably.
NICE RIFLE I NOTICED THE CASE UNDER IT ONLY OTHER PLACE IVE SEEN ONE WAS IN THE U.S ARMY. M60 BARREL CASE .VERY SMARTOriginally Posted by JOHNO
here's my 1980 dated MPiKSM-72
