    By the way, I don't know where but waaaay back when I found some RPD links online - only a few - and one of them had some pics of the internals:

    Looks REAL simple on the inside. The bolt locking lugs appear to be a lever-action version of the German roller-lock design.

    there are 2 "paddles" (for lack of a better term) that sit on either side of the bolt that rides in grooves on the bolt carrier, as the bolt goes into battery, the bolt goes back a bit on the bolt carrier in turn pushing the "paddles" to go into the receses that are on either side of the receiver and lock the bolt in...... it's kinda simlar to how the Hk weapons work, except the paddles lock in the recess when the bolt goes back

    BTW are these kits the RPD A or B models? the A models the charging handle goes back and forth as the action is cycling, like on a 1919, the B ones the charging handle lock forward and doesn't move, like on the M60.......has anyone asked that question to the vendors?

    I talked with Jayne last week and asked her the question. She went to find out and after some delay she came back and told me they were the non-reciprocating charging handle type (the B ones the charging handle lock forward and doesn't move, like on the M60)


    Did I do that?
