Our Assessment:   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 Maadi ARM and RPMs were 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 no bayonet lug and bipod, it still harnesses the rock solid DNA that makes these rifles so great.  Considering all things, the DNA of this rifle is as Russian as you can get with a true 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.  Please see specs below and good luck on your bid!
