Default Romarm Paratrooper @ Atlantic

Basically an M10-762 without the crappy furniture from what I can tell...

All these new Romanian rifles are nice and all, but I want to see new AES-10bs and PSLs.

....pipe dream, Iím sure

Ya, I don't get it myself. It would only improve their profits. I don't see the reason for such a limited market. Romarm/Cugir could really fill a void.

It does look like the M10. They never seemed like big sellers.

If chopped, pretty much a fixed stock Draco? Except, alas, no dimples...

But it does have the side rail, unlike the Draco.

I would normally say what is Atlantic doing with some.of these "odd" builds...this, the wbp Beryl, etc..but I know they must sell like hotcakes or else they wouldn't make them.

I actually really like this setup. For the extra $ over the WASR, I'd take it. Perfect SBR candidate.

The Beryl thing, that's a totally different ballpark.

I would like this in underfolder stock.
Ah good call on the rear leaf. I forgot about the RPK leaf that was on them. As for the rail, I didn't know it was different. I always just thought they were dressed up WASRs. Didn't know about that requirement. Good to know.

I was expecting NP underfolders when I saw paratrooper.

How much shorter is a Draco’s gas system then an AKM?

Hmm, I'm starting to like this inexpensive plinker
I mean, you're looking at a $50 premium over a WASR. I think it's worth it.

Personally I like these alot. Love my RH10 alot.

A Cugir RH10 (limited production) minus the Magpul furniture. (But I prefer the Magpul)
Wasnt a fan of the birdcage on AKs til I shot it at night, makes a HUUUUGE difference.

As was stated, more ideal setup for SBR
2 reasons imho why the M10 didnt sell well

#1. M+M industries wasnt known and got a Cugir contract without Centurys knowledge
#2. The M10 had those gaudy pads over the quad rail setup many disliked

Century had an exclusive contract and sued M+M frivilously even tho Cugir broke their end
Cugir wanted another vendor, Century wanted to control the supply debuting their C39s and RAS47s
Look at how long it took Century to deliver what M+M did years ago.....tells you something.

What do you guys think? SBR it & add a metal side folder stock? That is the route I am going.

Folks we looked at the PSL rifles 8 months ago and the final price landed in the US was to high to make it work . Major deposit upfront , 8 -10 month production time , High price and to much risk made the deal a no go.

Wow. Total bummer. What price was considered too high? I would pay $1,000.
