"Dime a dozen"?! :shock:

At which museum is it kept, and why is the gas tube retaining lever not in the closed position? :confused:

How come we don't have a thread for North Korean variants? I would love to see some of the builds people have done with them. :razz:

Because in reality there is probably less than 20 kits in the US.

This one is built from a type 68 stamped kit.
Wow! That's nice :shock: Where did you get the kit?

The kit I bought off of gunbroker back in '04 for around $600. I etched in the NorK selector markings into a AK-Builder flat and had it built early this year. :grin:

Maybe because North Korean kits are pretty rare here in the states. Also, I believe that posts referring to NK guns are usually posted in the Chinese Forum.

Could someone tell me more about the Type 68? Namely what features does it share with the Chinese stamped Type 56 AKM?

Other than using the 7.62x39mm round, Kalashnikov magazines, and a muzzle nut/flash hider, there's not much that the North Korean Type 68 shares with a stamped Chinese Type 56. The North Korean Type 68 is probably more closely similar to a European AKM than a Chinese rifle.
