    Default SAR-3 w/muzzle break (Thx JimmyC)

    Many months ago I was searching for an original Romanian muzzle device for my SAR-3 and JIMMYC very kindly offered to solve my problem. I bought the remaining implements from K-Var and went about doing the conversion myself. All came out fine and well, but I want to stress that a drill press is a must for anyone wanting to drill holes in these things. I don't have one and, well, it got challenging. Other than that, the instructions other board member gave me worked quite well (e.g. rifle in the freezer, FSB in the oven).

    A friend has video of the first day I fired the rifle but he's awol...

    Here are some pics in the meantime... and THANK YOU JIMMYC!

    Great looking Rifle. I'm glad the muzzle break found a good home! Those front sight bases can be tricky to drill.
    I never met a gun I didn't like!

    The face you show me scares me so
    Thought that I could call your bluff
    But now the lines are clear enough

    I think he put a Romanian FSB (22mm) on the SAR.

    Have a few extra brakes? Need a few right now.

    Correct, it's all OEM Romanian.

    No more brakes, sorry.

    eli, I like the East German furniture on your rifle. I'm also in the process of making a Romanian AIMS-74 clone out of my registered Ratmil C.U.R. 2.

    Here's is a Romanian military photo of a Romanian trooper in the Bosnian area with his 5.45 AIMS-74.



    I'm looking for the Romanian side folding stock. The East Germans side folders with the lever are common. The Romanian's with the push button are a little harder to find.

    Didn't the Romanians make the lever type too? Or did I buy an EG side folder from AIM?

    Yes, the Romanians also made the lever type. The Romanians are not finished quite as well and the stock is of a slightly different shape. The folding mechanism is also different.

    I would be happy to find a Romanian with the lever. Anyone want to part with one?

    I'll post a photo of the East German type later today.

    Here are two East German side folding stocks. One still in it's original sealed bag, and one out of the bag. The close up shows the folder mechanism in detail.

    I also included the E.G. label which comes in the bag with the stock.

    Yep, my folder is definitely Romanian. That's ok, it's 'correct' for my SAR-1. Now, I just need the screws so that I can attach it, sometime this year.

    Thanks guys!

    I got the sidefolder in 2001 at a Lakeland, FL show for $55 and, believe it or not, kept it far far away from my AKs until after the ban expired.

    Notice the mag?

    Is that one of the 60 rounders? It looks a little fatter than normal.

    Naw, I wish. It's a modified Galil 35 rounder (works great! better than my circle-10s)
