    Question 5.56x45 RPK?

    Saw this on Impact Guns website. Is this an Arsenal USA creation, or are there actually RPK's out there in service in 5.56x45?

    I don't know if its something made entirely for the civilian market but I wouldn't be entirely surprised if a variant was actually in use by at least the Bulgarians themselves since from what I have read about their small arms program they seem to prefer the Kalashnikov designs (though I believe they also use a G36 variant).

    Of course being a NATO member standardization on the 5.56 caliber would be of obvious benefit if not a requirement for acceptance.

    All conjecture on my part but it would make sense to me that they would be phasing out the 7.62/5.45 designs and moving toward 5.56 armament in light of above mentioned NATO status which I believe they were given in 2004 ?

    Thanks for the reply O.D. ! Yeah that's kind of what I figured as well. It would make sense since that's a standard NATO round. It would be interesting if there were 45 round RPK mags in 5.56x45.

    K-var's RPK-028B barrel assembly (5.56) was on sale a couple months ago, around $400. including a bipod. Regularly $499.
    Russian or Bulgarian RPK parts seem to be scare in the marketplace. I searched for three years for a Merlot RPK-74 front trunnion. Finally, I found on on another site.
