Also check Gunbroker.com, there are still kits listed at $100-$120. Cope's is good but every Romy kit I've ever seen has been pretty much mint from a shooter's stance.

For now, there are more Romy kits out there than the market will bear. Avoid FTF Industries like the plague.

I wish I was an importer two years ago, these kits must have come here at $30 ea.

Cope's is a good bet, maybe a bit high but quality service.

Check out the ak files. The front pistol grip is just a different lower handguard, very easy to replace. If you don't want the main pistol grip you can find a dragunov style stock or sporter stock, but why? It functions and looks better with the pistol grip. The drag style likes to snag on stuff and it looks sooo post ban.:)

Yes, you can replace the Romanian forward p'grip with pretty much any AKM forend. The Romanians also used standard forends (w/o the p'grip). They can be had quite reasonably from K-var in both wood, and laminated wood. Any Polish, Bulgarian, Russian, or US made aftermarket AKM forend made for the 7.62x39 variety will fit too.
As for kits, if your looking for a Romanian AKM kit there are a number of sources. Regardles of the vendor, they all came from the same place.
