S O L D: AK-47 M72 RPK
The semi-auto version of the heavy-duty full-auto RPK machinegun.
21" barrel. (Barrel diamerter is .765" !)
The highest quality HEAVY-barreled AK variant.
(YUGO - not the cheap thin-barreled Romanian RPK)
1.5-6X40 variable scope, has Ballistic Plex style reticle, finger-adjust knobs;
Picatinny-Weaver style scope mount;
nice trigger pull;
bipod, slant-style muzzle brake;
two 30-rd. steel mags;
and one 20-rd. steel mag (where legal).

This "sporter system" is pretty awesome. You can use the iron sights, or the scope.
The iron sights are adjustable for both windage and elevation.
I like using Stoney Point shooter's sticks while sitting on the ground, instead of prone with bipod.
If you like using the 7.62x39 round, and you like shooting at longer ranges than the average AK-47...
Here's an example of what they are going for (just the gun $700+):

The aftermath of the Presidential election may cause the value of these "assault rifles" to go way up.
I've had this "sporter" M72 RPK AK-47 for about a year now, and there have been about 200 rounds thru it.
I'll let it go (for another project) for $799 + free S/H to your local FFL holder.
