It is possible that this is a Valmet M78, which has very often been used to impersonate the RPK in American movies, but it doesn't seem to have the distinctive three-prong flash hider of the M78. It's also likely that this might be one of the semi-auto Norinco copies that were sold in the U.S.
- The barrel seems too short to be the RPK. It looks like a 21" Chinese RPK clone with the Chinese club-foot stock and a standard Chinese AK front wooden fore end. Or it could be a 'franken-gun'. Lord knows there are tons of those in the film biz. :) MPM
- Yeah, I think you're right. I think I'm gonna have to add some pics of Chinese RPK-type weapons to the RPK page, just because I imagine there are plenty of American armorers who use them in movies. Good call. -MT2008
