Member BR7.62 here.
who do ya'll suggest these days to build an all matching Maadi AKM parts kit? looking for reasonable price AND reasonable turnaround due to the pending doom here in VA.
it's really important to me to preserve/refinish and retain the arabic writing on the FSB
EDIT: i plan to use a virgin romanian barrel for this build
also wondering if i should go with a childers or recreators receiver (74ullc is not an option at this time)?

ReCreator 100% and send to Two Rivers is the top option right now.
I just got mine with markings
But I’m not that concerned with perfect ... Egyptian AKs are about as far from perfect as it gets.
Iv not built mine yet if you need a look at the marking.
The hardest part on mine is going to be duplicating the bubbles in the paint lol

Have had Mario at Piece of History Firearms do one and Global Military Gunsmithing do another.
Instead of telling each other how bad the situation is why not take 2 minutes of your life and tell our elected officials instead? www.congress.org
I built this numbers matching Maadi kit last year with a ReCreator marked by them. Romanian barrel. Used Techno's Russian paint on the receiver and barrel, everything else is original paint. Dinged and scuffed it up a bit to match.
Mario at Piece of History Firearms built all my matching number kits and did the selector engravings. Some he did as arsenal new, others he did just as I'd find them in a cache in Iraq or better yet, in an Iraqi family's house. They were allowed one AK and a case of ammunition per house. Most AKM I ran into were Romanian, but every now and then an Egyptian treasure would pop up!
I Sent Mario @ POHF My Maadi Back In April To Repair The Shaved Bayonet Lug to Make Whole. I Included A Normal Stock To Replace The Planet Of The Apes Stock And To Make It Overall Better Looking..He Does Not Answer Emails Or Return Phone Calls..I Did Not Receive A Note Or Anything..All I Had To Go On Was The UPS Tracking # That Said It Was Signed For...The Rest Is Up To My Imagination. How Would That Make You Feel? I Have Never Did Business With Like This Before..I Should Have Sent It To 2 Rivers Now, At Least There Is A Working Phone Number That Has A Live Person Answering Your Call And Replies To Emails..Not Sent To a Black Hole..
