WCChapin | Go or No Go – Unboxing of a Contribution from JCM45
“Unboxing” a contribution from JCM45 – And introducing “Nadia”, my Romanian MD.63/G AKM.
JCM45 unexpectedly provided me with a Midway USA gift certificate after I had sent him some reloading supplies. I decided to apply the credit to the purchase of a 7.62×39 No Go gauge.
I assembled Nadia from a parts kit purchased from a friend/vendor at several Michigan gun shows. The rifle was a 1984 Cugir manufacture Romanian Patriotic Guard rifle (Romy G) that was imported prior to the barrel ban. It is all matching numbers and unfired – the barrel had protective paper in the bore that had been charred when the cutting torch demilitarized the receiver.
My guess is that this is as close as I can get to a new Eastern Bloc AKM.
