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
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.
must have cost you a fortune.
was planning to get an SRC rpk.
I'd get the LCT over the SRC since they use better quality materials and the woods nicer.
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.
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.
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.
do you know if there is an rpd or the hk21 avaible in europ
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.
What company did you get it from, and for how much roughly?
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).
Cheerage for the watch also
Truth be told I enjoy building them a little more than actually using them.
The sheer amount of parts available mean you've limitless options for a build, a bit like lego really
