I just picked up my Romanian AKT-98 22lr trainer. I have yet to shoot it, but I will be heading to the range tomorrow to shoot it before school starts up again. I polished the the bolt because it was ugly, and the black paint on it was coming off. I think it looks much better this way, though it took me a few hours of sanding and buffing.

yea, I've read a bit on these .22 trainers. I read that some were very unreliable, let us know how it does.

Also does this model take AK parts? or are they one offs?

I got it on gunbroker for $300 shipped. It was another $80 for transfer fees, so a total of $380. I love it, it looks and feels like a real AK. Only now i don't have to worry about finding 7.62x39 ammo anymore. I am sure they are sold other places as well, but i am unsure where. Someone let us know of a stable supplier for these rifles.


Here is one more picture with no bolt.

I know it takes the standard AK furniture, and the all the fire controls are the same as the full size AK. It just has a plastic piece added to shorten the bolt travel. The dust cover is also a little different inside, but i am sure a standard one would fit on it.

Well I fired about 400 rounds of Remington Gold and Federal Champions through it, and it worked almost perfectly. I got 4 or 5 rounds that failed to feed (The round missed the chamber.) And two that failed to fire (but i blame the cheap ammo for that). Accuracy at 50 yards was almost exactly what my real AK shoots (with Wolf) at that distance. While polishing the bolt the night before i also polished up the fire controls and the trigger felt great. I did have a problem with one of my mags. The first round would fire but the next round would not move up into position to get stripped. When i remove the mag the round pops up. It looks like it is too tight in the mag. Other than those few things the gun is amazing. Really fun to shoot, and firing it 400 times cost me under 10 bucks, so you can't beat that. I would recommend one to anyone with little money for ammo, or to someone that hates trying to find cheap 7.62x39 as much as i do. :D

That's great. I use CCI Blazer and Federal 36 gn high velocity ammo exclusively in mine. I also had failures to feed when I first broke mine in. After that it's just as reliable as my Walther G22, which only jams a couple of times each outing. As a matter of fact, I only clean it after shooting about 500 rounds. It's a hell of a lot of fun. I would also recommend it, and congrats on the great deal.

Just to be clear - this rifle, since it's .22lr only, has detachable mags?
