Well,

I'll be watching. Haven't shot mine yet. Interesting to see how she turns out.

The rifle will be fed through 3 different mags- A Bulgarian polymer slabside 40 rd, a Romanian 40 rd steel, and a 30 rd Hungarian steel. All of the mags are likewise, brand new. I will sequence them in that order, 10 rds at a time.

Other than the obvious goal of sighting in the RPK to what I consider acceptable, I'll be judging the trigger to determine if an upgrade is in order, mechanical function notwithstanding.

Let me know if there is something particular you'd like to know and I'll try to address the concern. Looking forward to tomorrow.~ss

Pork by-products: heart, liver, snout, ears, and the delectable things they are turned into.

Brian, the bi-pod will most likely be extended, then if time permits, I'll fold them and shoot some more. The bi-pod will never be physically removed. I've read about possible deleterious effects to accuracy by even just having the bi-pod installed, so I too am curious. I'm glad you mentioned that. Thanks.~ss

I picked up one of those AES-10B's several years ago. Never fired it. I'm interested to see how it goes.

OK, I got 10 rds downrange out of Bulgy 40 rd mag. These hits are marked by the circle with the line.
Made windage adjustment.
Then, 10 rds from Romanian 40 rd mag. These hits are marked by vertical line.

My aim was at the middle neck. Big board was used in anticipation of any possible major windage adjustments. You can see, it was a good thing I did.

Got to charge tablet, then will get picture.

But this is all for now. I know...I suck
Mrs.ss is to blame. She wants to go to the casino.

I was actually very pleased with my 2nd group, though it's obvious I need to make more windage adjustments. Please troll and discuss.

BTW, The neck and head are the only thing visible above the board from where I shoot, so hits are in what would be the mid torso.~ss

Unless there's a huge change in the weather, I probably won't shoot today. Blustery, with gusts to 40 mph.
A few thoughts: 1) Bulgy polymer mags are very nice. Load easy. Insert smoothly. 2) Trigger surprised the shat outta me. Much lighter( though I'm heavy handed) than I had expected. First few shots had me cussing because of the crispy break. They took me off guard. 3) Bi-pod provides a stable barrel rest, with the weight of the rifle making it fairly easy to maintain sight alignment/picture

As I get more familiar with the rifle, my groups should tighten up.~ss

LOL...urban dictionary had an interesting definition of "squatchy". I see now that I didn't put 2 and 2 together. And thank you, the rifle is really a pleasure to shoot. Buttstock is a little short, but manageable. I may have my nephew make a replacement that is a little longer.~ss

How far back from the target? That rifle should group a bit tighter,if that's a 100 meters.Like,a small paper plate size.

I believe the 1st posting says it is 150 yds. It is pretty decent at this distance with the factory bipod at the muzzle end. I have couple AES-10Bs, I can't get the one with factory bipod group well, it wants to bounce! I attach a barrel mount rail near gas block on the one without factory bipod and use a Harris style bipod. Below is a group at 50 yds. Not too bad while I still need to learn the trick of shooting with bipod.

Not a bad looking rifle and it looks like you are having fun with it. I look forward to future reports...

Reminds me that I have to complete a couple of Romanian RPKs that I've been procrastinating on for a couple of years (like new kits from APEX, US barrel and NDS receivers). I riveted the trigger guards and the trunions on/in, but haven't gotten around to finishing the barrel installation. Your comments here give me some additional incentive to finish them...

OK, after some more tweaking on the big board and some windage adjustment clarification(thanks GP), I went semi-rapid fire with the Romanian 40 rd mag. With Mrs.ss sworn to yell at me if I exceeded 3 seconds between rounds, I sent 20 rds downrange. As you can see in the pic, there were 13 hits in the black. Red arrows show the misses, with the one over the head hitting a rock at the tip of the arrow. Aimpoint was upper torso. Again, this was 150 yds/iron sights. Am I pleased with the results? Pretty much. There's no question that a bad guy would have to keep his head down...or risk losing it.

Going to keep getting range time when I can, so hopefully groups will continue to get better.
Trolling encouraged.
Thanks for reading.~ss

Forgot to mention that I never had a problem with any of the mags feeding. Steel mags are of course heavier, but are "beasty" feeling in the heavy RPK. There's no question that the Bulgarian mags slide in place quicker and are noticeably lighter, adding value to professional shooters.

I want to thank Bruce Allen for his thoughts on corrective lenses, KL for the new RPK, Jim Rawles, SG ammo, and GP.~ss

Well,

Need to get yourself a Romy Drum or two. The extra weight supposedly helps settle it down.

Nice posting and reporting Mr. SS. I've had a hankering for an RPK for some time,, this thread is making it worse. BTW, good looking rifle and keep the range reports coming (Hate to do it, but have to ask what do these babies go for these days?).
