    East German 1966 "Transitional" MPi-KM Pics

    Recent build by Original AK, Inc., from a 1966 parts kit. As I understand it, laminated butt stocks were seen only on early MPi-KMs, which were introduced in 1965. The stocks had no trap door for cleaning kit storage. The transition to plastic stock furniture occurred in 1966. During that year, rifles with both wood and plastic furniture were produced, like this one. The first plastic grips and handguards were dark brown and had mold numbers but no dates. These early rifles had rear sight blocks with a small hole for the sight hinge pin, and a long slide rest. Parts were milled instead of cast. The distinctive 800m rear sights were marked in red.
