    AKM Kit Parts ID

    I know a bunch of these threads have appeared in the past, but most of the pictures are gone. I've spent hours trying to figure out what all the components are. So here is my best guess based of searching this site. This is from an RGuns '69 Izhevsk kit.

    Slant brake - Izzy, has two small diamond proofs on it. Wasn't able to get a good picture.

    FSB - I think its a cast Izzy?




    Gas Block - Milled Izzy - Has diamond proofs on bottom


    HGR - Cast Tula? Has a small circle on the front and nothing else



    RSB - Cast Tula? Has small detent and two mold lines?




    Sight Leaf - Izzy based on font and diamond proof


    Top Cover - I think its a replacement. Its flared and from a guide has a Tula trait? Its stamped with the full serial number above the latch hole. Update - Not flared and has Izzy traits from '68.


    The picture came out bad, but the line runs all the way out, and a guide said only Tula did that after '68

    RG - Cast unnumbered replacement


    Selector - Cast unnumbered replacement


    TG - Izzy


    PG - Izzy


    Rear Trunnion - Milled Izzy



    Am I anywhere close on this stuff? Also, some threads had conflicting information as time went on and more kits were examined. Theoretically, what are the parts that could be cast on a late '69 Izzy?

    Thanks,

    Danny

    That’s the thread I got most of my SWAGs for parts ID from, but I’m still not sure on some of them.
