Hi guys, I am new to this forum and I need your assistance & guidance how to use or navigate my way through this forum to find what I've been looking for and that is a CAI AES-10B RPK. I tried almost every shop or website that carries it outside Cali and they've been nothing but A** holes, they treat us like we made these s***ty gun rules in our state. So much for a fellow NRA member and defender of the second amendment :mad:
Thanks allot guys for all your help

Thanks for welcoming me onegtalon, I actually tried them several times. their problem is that they dictate what is California Compliant!! they would not put a bullet button on any weapon that is not advertised on their " California Compliant" list even though it is legal in California as long as it got a bullet button and a 10Rd mag. Actually all they got to do is disassemble the 40Rd mag and send it with the gun and its legal but they don't want a sell I guess

Ask your FFL if they would install it for you upon receipt if possible.

My FFL dealer (Mount Pleasant Arms) have already contacted these sites that have the RPK in stock and offered to send them a bullet button or they can ship to him and he will install it, BUT sad to say, they refused both options!!!

Have you tried Valkyrie Arms in Santa Clara?

They don't carry Century Arms product do they? I thought they make their on stuff! Well, they are as expensive or maybe more than Arsenal Arms. I asked them to convert a Saiga 7.62x39 to an under-folder with Russian color style wood furniture once and they wanted $1200!!. I ended up getting a WASR 10/63 1973 (in an immaculate condition) and a Polish AKMS (both brand new) for $1198 out of the door from Peter at Mount Pleasant Arms.

I posted a WTB on CalGuns and AR15.com on June the 8th, not even one response, I bet cause I live in Cali. So much for supporting & assisting a fellow NRA member:patriot::banghead:

Times are bad for looking for somewhat rare black rifles - there's an election year buying craze going on. With that said, Apex still has Romanian RPK parts kits and barrels, I believe, so you can build one. All-in-all it cost me about $600-700 to build my RPK, counting the BP costs. It turned out to be quite accurate for an AK, and ridiculously easy to shoot (due to weight and the bipod) - I was hitting a 3" steel target with every shot at 100 yds from prone, and a friend of mine, who was shooting for the first time, hit that target a bit over a half of the time. The target got destroyed though :(

Nick my friend, I appreciate your reply and the suggestion in regards to building one off of a parts kit. My frustration is caused by these online shops like Classic Arms, Center-fire Systems and J&G sales that have these AK variants in stock but they would not go the extra mile (for a fellow NRA member!!) and install a bullet button (that takes couple of minutes to install and my FFL dealer is willing to supply them with the kit). I even asked Classic Arms not to send me a mag with the damn rifle, they didn't even bother to reply to my email.
