    Clearview AKM 63

    I know Clearview called these an AMD 63 but it is what it is.
    I know these are a mish mosh of AMD 65 parts essentially.
    I always thought these kits came in as 2000M single stack receivers but mine not having the M I wondered if mine came in as a double stack version.
    Mine does have a chrome lined barrel but the chamber is not chrome lined.
    Black painted wood pistol grips.
    Any info on these is always welcome.
    Its unfired and super clean.

    Had a range day last Monday and shot 100 rounds or so thru it and its a sweet shooter.
    Functioned perfectly and the irons were dead on.
    Stock is a bit short so it bit my nose a few times until I got used to it.

    Do you have a close up of the receiver left side, where the axis pins go into the x and y stamps?

    Thanks,
    That looks pretty good, mine has axis pin holes that look like they're off, just like in this pic that PRDUBI posted in the new FEG import thread

    When I see them, they look off a bit.

    that SN range says its a AMD65 setup that came as a SA2000.

    Heres an old pic of mine, kinda hard to tell but the pin holes are off just like in the pic of the bare receiver, and mine started out same way, single stack bare receiver.



    eta, if i recall correctly the receiver needed a ton of work, the trigger hole was round instead of square, the keyhole for the selector was just a hole, magwell of course, and rails needed trimmed, maybe the ejector too?

    I'm wondering if they did it because of the single stack setup with the sa2000 magazines.

    For all I know the holes are in the right place and the stamp is off, which is completely possible since it was single stack, they would have had a separate die, right?

    it was the same machine but from what I saw was the cutting jig for the magazine section was different and also the stamping for the single stack, it was smaller for the cut out.

    I can see the notes and reading it as the laws got funkier and funkier, I can see the FEG sales and marketing wringing their brains out on the compliance setup.

    I can also see in the FTZ notes that some KBI's went elsewhere when they couldn't be entered into the US market.

    I hate ATF, Customs, Clinton, Gonzalez, everyone that just monkeyed with imports.

    The whole thing is a joke...a big fat joke.

    From what I have read the SA 2000M were originally single stack but no mention of the SA 2000 being any different so I assume it came in the country as a single stack.
    The M could have meant something else entirely who knows.
    It functioned flawlessly so I am happy with it.
    I did find an inch longer buttstock so maybe I won't get my nose bit next time I shoot it.

    100_3398.JPG100_3400.JPG100_3394.JPGHere are photos of my SA 2000M. Its wooden stock is a bit longer than others, & fits me best of AKs I own or have tried. Since all parts are serial #d to match, indicates it was assembled by FEG in Hungary. Since I own a "tactical" Romarm SAR-1, I'm ok with keeping it single stack for target use + have 8 Magazines. It is accurate, very pleasant to shoot, I was having FTE problems - hope they were cured by the new ALG special recoil spring, new extractor & spring.

    Let me know as I'm showing this to the FEG engineers and they are curious.

    All remedies are what they would do.
