View Full Version : NEW Romainia Kit

I got home today and had the parts kit I got at gunbroker waiting for me.
It is new looks like it's never been assembled. All the parts plus rivits for the trigger guard and the side mount scope rail.
My new DPH flatbending jig and flats w/rails were here also.
Now I just need to stay home long enough to do my first build.
With Rita headed for Texas I may have to make FEMA deliveries again.

Hey, buddy, pal, friend of mine.
You live in Austin? Have a jig? Want to rent it to me for a weekend?
I've got cookies...

is that a Romanian PSL kit. It looks great. If it is I have an extra ( correct) side rail, I might be willing to send you.

Nope thats an AKM kit. Just has the drag styke stock as a parts of his kit for whatever reason.

Now I may be stating the obvious, but the flat won't fit that rifle if the two are what I think they are.

So you're the one who beat me out of that kit! Good, glad to see someone from this board got it. Looked like a real sweet kit. Question though, is the barrel pinned into the trunion? I was worried about having to headspace and then drilling throughthe barrel. Hope it turns out well.

That's actually a WUM-1 kit. Those came with everything except the receiver. They even came with rivets, a center support, and scope rail. The magazine is a 5 rounder, but it's always good to have.
The bundle covering the end of the barrel should be the package with all the barrel pins. The barrels on the WUM-1 kits are drilled, but not pinned. The muzzle nut is held on with a spot of weld underneath, but you should be able to cut through it with a dremel disc. There isn't a huge blob of weld, so don't cut too deep. There should have been enough rivets to install the trunnion, scope rail, and stock tang. Those may have been misplaced if the kit was opened by the previous owner.
I bought 2 of these kits from Inrange a few months ago. Now I wish I would have bought all he had. The barrels are already headspaced to the bolt, but you will have to press the barrel out to rivet the trunnion. Even though it's drilled for the barrel pin, you should check the headspace before firing it.
The only bad part with these kits is that all the barrel blocks are canted. It's not much, but it's enough to notice. You can leave it as is, or straighten & redrill and use a different pin.
The Tapco flats should work just fine on them. They're standard 7.62x39 rifles, so there's nothing out of the ordinary with them.

Thanks for straightening that out Ryan.
I'd thought they were x54's.

How much do these WUM-1 kits go for?

Don't feel bad, I thought the same thing, when I first looked at the pic.
I think it was the mag and stock that threw me off.

Yes Rhino_66 got it all right, none of the pins were in. The barrel was a little tough comming out. I was bending the flat when I got a call I had to leave to get a load for FEMA. Now I'm sitting in Dallas waiting for Rita to come ashore and congress to give FEMA the money. Then I'll find out which Walmart gets free ice paid for by the Taxpayer.
Wish the truck was bigger so I could carry all I need to build with. Maybe I get it finished next time I get in. I'll just shut the phone off for a few days. OH Well.
