    Honestly no idea, thought maybe a PLO kit, but I don't think so as I've never heard of an Albanians in the PLO shipment. But this thing has cosmoline on it and the bore is pretty much brand new.

    I would say that you should build it on a Chinese machine gun receiver, but that would mess up the matching numbers. Childers makes Chinese fixed stock receivers.

    I've thought about that but the Albanian has a unique kind of receiver. The end of the receiver towards the trunnion isn't bent, so the trunnion sits flush with the receiver. Also it does not have magwell dimples. So unless they could custom make that, I'd have to use something else.

    A reweld is a possibility...

    Mid 70s Chinese did supply rifles and machinery to them at their request to help them establish a state weapons manufacturing of the AKM.

    Late 78 or so is when they made their first rifles.
