RPK by Drake-UK RPK by Drake-UK
Part of a new batch that arrived recently, pictured below is an inokatsu RPK.

Really love the old worn wood pieces they really make whole thing look that bit more authentic.

Weights pretty monstrous as is the overall length so its pretty intimidating on the field, which is good :D

__________________________________________________

The RPK (Ruchnoy Pulemyot Kalashnikova, Russian: Ручной пулемёт Калашникова or "hand-held machine gun of Kalashnikov") is a 7.62x39mm light machine gun of Soviet design, developed by Mikhail Kalashnikov in the late 1950s, parallel with the AKM assault rifle. It was created as part of a program designed to standardize the small arms inventory of the Red Army, where it replaced the 7.62x39mm RPD light machine gun. The RPK continues to be used by the armed forces of countries of the former Soviet Union and certain African and Asian nations. The RPK was also manufactured in Bulgaria and Romania.

Finally, a weapon on the-Soviet-Army I could relate to and quickly identify.

A beautiful weapon.

 

SVD (translating as "semiautomatic rifle by Dragunov), chambered in 7.62x54mm, and given a PSO-1 telescopic sight.

 

The performance of a semiautomatic and bolt-action sniper rifle vary quite drastically- While a bolt-action has more power and range, a semi-automatic has more rapid fire, but less range. Thus, a Russian sniper with an SVD will get within 500 meters of you before he fires.

Sure. It's more like a DMR rather than a sniper rifle.

I didn't have too since we don't need the orange tip here so sadly I wouldn't know how easy it is to remove.

if you ever get one with it. i found a video later that night about it. you basically boil some water and dip the tip in the water for turn minutes and twist it with pliers then wipe the tip after removed to get the remainder of the glue off.

Second hand so saved a few quid :D

I'd get the LCT over the SRC since they use better quality materials and the woods nicer.

I'd avoid the CA version like the plaque it looks awful and in all honesty I'd personally avoid most of CA's stuff nowadays.

For AK's LCT make some of the nicest I've held/used and they're reasonably priced for the most part and to add they make kits for inokatsu and previously for guarder.

They at least use decent wood, metal/steel unlike CA.

maybe you got lemons with your CA or maybe u bought a sportline..
i had CA ak74s and it has served me for almost 2 years and still running like champ. i also installed guarder sp140 in it.

i heard LCT make good aks. but, here in my country, ive never seen anyone using it. thats why... i dunno.

Oh good heavens I don't currently own one, I had a good fondle of one at a skirmish a few months back and it was just horrid almost like an cheap china clone with its dull matt grey pot-metalish body and those glaring white trades all over it and poorly finished wood and to top it off some glaring external inaccuracies.

Its a shame as I had a CA SRL-105 a good while back and it was decent quality and the arsenal trades where at least engraved.

I'd suggest popping into a local retailer (if you have any) and see if they have any CA & LCT stuff for you to compare.

Sadly from what I've seen no manufacturer make either of those particular models atm and although I've seen a few custom jobs by some Belgium airsofters theres isn't anything available to buy.

I wouldn't lose hope though as theres always a chance one of the now countless manufacturers may pick either up in the near future.

Yeah the HPC (or something) version but iirc it was never actually released for sale or at least not to my knowledge.

Bit like the VSS that was on the cards for a while...

Redwolf iirc but as far as I'm aware the inokatsu rpk (kit) is discontinued now but it ran for about $585.00.

LCT basically made inokatsu kits to begin with and their kits are a more modest $289.00 and available from most HK retailers (WGC have some in stock).
