    What kind of Romanian AK is this?

    Hello


    I only know that this is a Romanian AK, I would really appreciate it if anyone could tell me more about this rifle, I tried to ask around and some told me its a Pm md.63....others told me its a sar1, some said AIM. I really dont know whether these are different names for the same thing or not. Plus I couldnt figure out anything from the markings. Thanks

    Is that a third hole? It's either Romanian or illegal in the U.S.

    Welcome to the group!

    Nice to have members from around the world showing us items that we in the land of "shall not be infringed" are not allowed to own.

    I believe it to be a Pm md.63. The SAR series as far as I know were all semi-auto only.

    I thought SAR was on all Romanian rifles manufacturered for export and SFAFF was for all Romys manufactures for Romanian military. Couldn’t SAR be a full auto rifle intended for export to LEO and military? Someone drop some knowledge on me.

    I believe their referring to models such ad SAR-1, SAR-2, SAR-3, WASR 10 and so on, not selector markings

    IndyKid is right on, but export rifles from Romania had the SAR selector markings, hence the possible confusion.

    I'm pretty sure the only difference is that the the domestic md63 rifle made for the Romanian military would have S, FA, FF selector markings and the AIM was an export model and would have the SAR markings like yours.

    Dang, similar responses while I was typing.

    Thanks for help clear up what I meant but didn't say clearly. By SAR series, yes I meant the SAR-1, SAR-2, SAR-3 and all the WASR variations which were pretty much export rifles sent to the USA thanks to AT and unconstitutional F banning the SARs. And yes, the original WASR was exported to the USA along with the SARs but had a single stack magwell.

    Selector markings can drive you crazy.

    Its a Romanian "export" marked md.63.

    Large numbers of these were sold to Iraq in the 80s, among others.

    S = Safe
    A = Auto
    R = Repeat (semi)

    Those selector markings appear on models intended for export.


    Bless you for posting pics!
    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!

    First of All Thank you guys for all the info, I really appreciate your help!

    So What I understand is that this is a Romanian AIM, which is the name of the Pm md.63 model intended for Export, thats why it has the (S A R) markings instead of the domestic (S FA FF). And that the SAR and WASR are export Semi-Auto models intended to be exported to the US.

    I’m trying to learn more, so if I said anything wrong please correct me guys, Thank you very much.
