Maadi AKM

One of the more interesting AK47 styles available to collectors is the Maadi from Egypt . These (mostly) high quality AK47s are made on Factories that come from Russia, the mother of the AK47. Many of their parts and materials also originate with Russia and Germany which is another manufacturer of high quality AK47. The Maadi rife is very close to a ‘real’ AK47, of course they are semi-automatic and many were imported during the Assault Weapons Ban, so they have no bayonet lug, welded on muzzle nuts or no threads at all, and a really uncomfortable thumbhole stock. As long as you pay attention to 922r it’s possible to convert these back into more appealing AK47s with traditional pistol grip, muzzle devices, etc. Enjoy these pictures and short review of this unique and increasingly rare style of AK47 (AKM) At the time we write this these Maadis are available at Tucson Guns, in Tucson, Arizona

Egyptian Maadi RPK

An Egyptian RPK style AKM converted to look authentic

A Maadi RPK style AK47 was imported with a thumbhole stock. This example has two unique markings on the receiver and rear sight block.

The internals were updated to US made parts and the thumbhole stock was replaced with this Romanian RPK stock set. Some trimming was required as the Romanian RPK is a true RPK with heavy (thicker) barrel
