Very nice rifle!

I have the Mitchell yugo AK 47, no M behind the K. Wondering, what is the difference between the two?

Eric,

I believe that Mickey is referring to AKM ("M" for "Modernized")!!! :D
All American Arms/Mitchell Arms AK's are marked similiarly, respectively. :wink:

I think mine might show "RPK" somewhere on the receiver. It's been so long since I've played with it, I can't remember for sure. I'll try to remember to look at it when I get a chance.

Tony,

Mine doe's not have the letter M, just AK 47. I've had this for a long time. I think there was something going on with the importation at the time they were coming into the country, and very few came in marked as AK only and not AKM. Which perhaps would make it more valuable without the M. Anyone Know?

well, i thought that the akm had the stamped receiver and slant break on the muzzle. i dont have the original box and i think advertising as rpk-47 would mislead most to think it is actually an 'RPK' rather than a plain ole AK. anyone know the specifics of what determines the status of AKM?
i just need to move this weapon to subsidize my fleming sear!!! 8)

For what it's worth... I looked at my example this evening. It is a Mitchell Arms (Santa Ana, CA) imported rifle, serial # 0026##, and shows "Model RPK-47" immediately under the safety / selector lever. I don't know what year my rifle came into the USA, but it is NOT one of the "notorious" M90" pre-ban wannabe's.

I have in my notes (likely something I saw on the internet) that some individuals think some Yugo AKMs came into the USA with "standard" AKM sheet metal receivers and other were build by Zastava using "heavier gauge RPK" sheet metal receivers. This may be simply marketing hype.

Regardless... nice rifle. The Yugo is probably my favorite non Valmet AK style rifle. Some of the ones made the past decade or so using parts sets are apparently fine rifles too.

Some of the parts kits that were the newest underfolder configuration had standard, not RPK trunions and 1mm receivers but I have never seen any early pre-ban or M90's like that.

Maybe this will provide clarification on the "pre- 89" M70: :D

1. American Arms (first importer)

a) SN's through about 1,260/marked "MODEL AK/CAL. 7,62x39"

2. Mitchell Arms (last importer)

a) SN's through about 3,000/marked "MODEL RPK-47/CAL 7,62x39"

Value-wise, the AA imports are probably better in that they were the earlier imports and fewer imported. :wink:

Mitchell imports were marked AK-47 as well as RPK-47. Same exact gun just different markings.
