    Set of Russian AK, SKS and RPD tools and guages Made in 1952 Still new.

    I ordered a genuine Russian AK-47 tool and gauge kit from a fellow in Russia about a month ago. It finally arrived today!!


    Unissued and made in 1952 in it's original wooden case. The big tool is a precision sight tool. The kit also includes head space gauges.


    It can also be used on the SKS carbine as well as the RPD...

    I'm guessing this was made before the RPK came out, so it's not listed too.




    Some pics!!













    Translated info.

    Looks like some badass tools. Curious how much better that sight adjustment tool gets you dialed in compared to the normal sight tools. Also curious as to how they use some of those other calipers/tools. Not sure what the significance is of what some of them tell you, but it all looks nice.

    Sweet looking high quality looking tool set.
    More sophisticated looking than the AK47 itself.

    I have a East German set minus the large front sight tool. I had the above set once but traded it for something I needed. I also have a set of headspace gages that are East German

    The set was pretty inexpensive. $185 including shipping...

    What was amazing was the set was made in 1952 and was still new unissued... Makes me wonder just how many tens of thousands of these sets were made???

    Firing pin protrusion and extractor gap tools. Also for what I think is throat erosion.

    I bought AK74 gauges from the what is likely the same source. I trust Russian gauges more than a reverse engineered US copy.




    I always wanted the East German version of this set. I could never seem to have the coin when the set came up for sale. Best time was on a hunting trip in Robert Lee, TX. A German range owner had a set. I was so strapped from NFA purchases I could not afford the $150 asking price. I was so, so close. Then when I had the coin I tried to contact him - he fell off the map.

    Feast or famine.

    Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...

    BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

    Cool kits. A thread to an early AK47 armorers kit here too>>>

    Only armorers kit I ever purchased was a Mosin Nagant kit from Robert RTG. Never took a picture of it., but here is the link>>

    I got them from a guy who sells on Gunboards.com

    His user name there is assistant802

    As I said above the cost including shipping was $185. It appears he has more available.
