Our Assessment:   A little worn, but it takes more than that to put a stop to a workhorse like a Maadi ARM. This is a great example of a commercially imported AKM variant. This simple and sturdy military rifle makes for addition to any collection and is possibly the closest most of us will get to the original Russian AKs thanks to their involvement with production in Egypt.  The ARM was the first AK type rifle to really be imported into the US and set the stage to become one of the most beloved weapons on every corner of the planet.  Although this is a post ban import, with its filed down bayonet lug and fixed muzzle device – the DNA of this rifle is as Russian as you can get to an AKM rifle.  Any Egyptian AK rifle deserves a place in a prized collection and a chance to be put through its paces at a shooting range.  Bid on it, win it, love it!  Good Luck!
