side rail campared to the closest Russian AK 74 rail? Thanks!
Huey ... I think the Romy is a copy of the early Russian rail ... Stottman will know as I'm sure someone else will also ...huey_crew_chief said:Guys, I really need your help with this. I need to know if a SAR2s rail is a copy or resembles a Russian AK74 rail (one of their types)
Maybe..not sure. But, I think that is what I wanted to know. I am going for an early AKS 74 from the Anfgan era. Troy says the Trunnion issue would be taken care of....but should I just get the think taken off?Mike_F said:It depends on what year of AKS74 you are going for.
It you are going for an early 80's AKS74, the the Romy sideplate is as close as you're going to get, but the hole for the folding stock trunnion is in the wrong place.
If you are going for a late 80's AKS74 then you'll want one that looks more like those found on Saigas.
Didn't we already go through all this on arfcom? :smile:
Thanks for the imput, I am getting a side folder put on it now. Inrange is doing it. He told me the trunnion deal, but I said he could keep the existing rail on. I am thinking that it would be more authentic if I get it taken off.xcibes said:Hello Huey crew chief. No they are not the same although the Romanian is very similar. Theya re not the same because the Romanians use an AKM-style rear trunion and pin placement is different from real AK74 trunnions. So while it looks the same to most people, it is NOT identical.
