    Looking for Bulgarian AKM pictures.

    I have been looking for some pictures of Bulgarian AKM's.

    I dont see alot of them, did they make many of them?

    I see alot of AK47's but not that many AKM's.

    Thanks

    There was a pic of a Bulgarian warehouse with Russian akm with fixed wood stocks in crates.


    From an earlier post.
    Looks like Russian based akm and Hungarian based underfolders.

    The Bulgarians never bothered to make a true military AKM. They have made some export models for the civilian market in Europe using stamped receivers along with parts from their milled rifle production line. The AKMS in the pic above is Hungarian and the AKM is a Soviet Tula. They scrubbed the original markings and remarked them, like they did with their RPK-74's

    They never made one.The one in the book is like alot of other pictures there, if they didn't have the correct gun they would replace the furniture & pass it off as the correct model.There are quite a few gun's like that in the book.

    Okay,

    Thanks for the information. I wanted to see what a Bulgarian AKM looked like, as I dont have one in my collection of photos.

    Thanks and if anyone runs across photos of any please post them here for me. Or direct to me to where I might find some.

    Thanks
