EDIT

New update as of 03 JUL 08:

We received only 40 of our original order of 150 RPK rifles. Our lot DOES NOT have the carry handle (but does have the loop for it) nor did they include a chrome oil bottle. I personally went through each and every rifle to make sure the magazine, sling and cleaning kit was included. Additionally, I cleaned the black hand/thumb prints off the wood, checked for cracks/splits and applied a coat of Tung Oil. So, please be aware of what they are missing: chrome oil bottle and the carry handle. They are indeed the correct AES-10B rifles with the bulged front trunion and correctly positioned bipod. The finish on these rifle is a nice black oxide finish that is much better than the standar WASR rifles in my opinion.

Reasons beyond our control dictated how many we received and we are not even sure if we can be provided with more. So, we will be going through ALL email and forum responses (ar15.com, akforum.com and calguns.net) and contact people in the order of the response received.

I know some of you won't be happy about this but it's the best we can do. I purposely did NOT allow ANYBODY to collect a deposit or pay for a rifle in advance because there is always a chance things won't go as planned (which they did not). To be fair, JG Sales and Classic Arms has them available with the carry handle at $399.95. ALso, we can only sell ONE PER CUSTOMER. Some folks requested up to five (we have been checking email) but to keep this fair to everybody, I have to limit the purchase to one rifle at this time.

We would not have got this small batch if it had not been for Doug chasing everybody and anybody he could one afternoon about two weeks ago. He heard from another vendor that there was a small batch of RPK's that were being offered and he was on the phone for about two hours back and forth between Florida and Vermont. His complaining and persistence paid off because they agreed to send them.

We will be contacting you folks after the Fourth of July weekend in the proper order and verifying if you are still interested in the purchase. If you are not, please DON'T hesitate to let me know because it's not a problem.

SINCEREY,
Ron M. Cheney




UPDATE:AS OF 10:10pm Pacific Time on 07 MAR 08, these rifles are SOLD OUT.

Once we get a tally of sales (over 150+ rifles) and are able to assure more sales, we will re-open the pre-order




*************** JUST TO AVOID ANY CONFUSION ************************

We have set up a new email specifically for the RPK purchase. We are going through a TREMENDOUS hassle with the recent Yugo underfolder order and this will save us and YOU time in getting the rifle shipped to your dealer.

Please email us at RPK@hendersondefense.com and include your name, city and state, phone numbers and what FFL will handle your transfer. This email is for RPK purchases only and will speed up delivery time.

Also... just for the record and confirmation from our rep.. these are IN FACT the heavy barrel AES-10B models that we will be receiving.



This is Justin from Henderson Defense Industries in Henderson, NV. We manufacture AK47 rifles and AR15 lower receivers but are also now carrying weapons produced by Century Arms.

We are taking pre-orders for the RPK's and AR15's but NO PAYMENT is required or will be accepted at this time. The rifles will have the pistol grips removed AND sent seperately from the rifle at this time. The rifles will not the include magazines and we do not have any 10-rounders available at.

ETA: 03/15/2008

I hope it's not a real pain but it would REALLY help me if the guys that want an AR15 rifle email me at AR15@hendersondefense.com and let me know. I apologize for making this more of a hassle but again, it would make things much easier when trying to contact you guys when they are in.



EDIT: 03/05/08

Just want to let everybody know that these rifles are not listed on the CA DOJ list of banned assault weapons and the pistol grips have been removed and no magazines are included. These rifles are California-legal configured at this point. You guys have the options of bullet buttons, Monster Man grips, permanently fixed magazines or the variety of other ways to keep the weapon in compliance of California's gun laws once in your possession.

I will update the original post with this same information so that everybody viewing this post is well aware of the fact that these rifles have been altered for California sales.

PLEASE POST YOUR INTENTIONS here on this post with a "I will take a AR15" or an "I will take a RPK" so we can gauge how many we need to order.

The RPK is a the Romanian heavy barrel Model AES-10 and has a new chrome-lined 22" barrel, bipod, RPK stock and sling. The price is $375 plus shipping.

http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/1061/aeb10bm9.jpg

The AR15 has a 20" heavy barrel, A2 upper, A2 rear sights, A2 handguards and buttstock. Also, we have been told that some of the parts to manufacture this rifle were from surplus M-16A2's. The full-auto parts have been modified to semi-auto only configuration. These were not "beaters" but from what we were told, it was cheaper to replace the weapons than to modify them into M4 configuration . The rifle will include a USGI silent sling. $595 plus shipping.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express as well as checks and money orders.

Call 702-566-1000 from 11:00am until 4:30pm Monday through Friday.

Also, thanks for reminding me about the B in AES-10B. I am tired and promised my uncle (the owner) that I was going to post this info.

Justin,
Just for clarification for the AR-15, you are going to ship this into 2 parts. Isn't? The upper (including the grip) would ship directly to any address of our choice, and the lower with buttstock and LPK installed (no magazine included of course) will go directly to our local FFL. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

The AR15's are Century Arms manufactured. The receiver is made by a well-known lower receiver manufacture under contract from Century and the rest of the parts are from M16A2's that were overseas. From what we were told, the country of origin thought it was cheaper to replace their rifles than to upgrade to M4 configuration. The parts are US-military and/or NATO made parts that have been modified to semi-auto use ONLY. The bolt carriers are NOT M-16 compatible.

This is a GREAT price on these rifles and we don't know how many we will be able to get at this price.

The RPK is a heavy mofo, you should have a regular AK first. The RPK is a great bench shooter, the heavy barrel in mine makes for a great target shooter that can take a lot of heat before it loses accuracy.

And its a BIG AK that looks intimidating compared to puny ARs at the range :)

The reason I am jumping on 2 is that they are the original Romanian barrels, in 5 years you will wish you had more. US barrels are ok but nothing beats original chrome lined heavy duty support gun barrels.

Well this sounds like what I am looking for actually. I want something to take to the range and hit the gongs with. My partner in crime has an AK and I have shot it alot, but I want something with more acuracy.
I am looking at this rifle and the saiga 308. but this one is 100.00 cheaper than the 308.

Hi folks,

We have been told that our supply of RPK's has been alloted for the initial numbers and that I may receive more depending on stock. The rifles will be shipped to us the first week of April.. so two more weeks

I hope this is not too much of an inconveniance but they are priced right A day or two before the rifles arrive we will start contacting everybody to arrange payments but we DO NOT charge until shipped.

Please email us if you have any questions.

03-15-2008, 8:22 PM
I apologize for not updating you guys sooner. As stated above, we have been overwhelmed with sales during the last week. Also, the owner is really pushing us to get more weapons built so I have had less time to post and more time in the shop.

The price on the Henderson Defense rifles is going up a little but it's beause he wants all current rifles to be built with side rail scope mounts on EVERY AK-type rifle. He wants us to have a decent inventory to sell before I post them for sale here on Calguns because he said the last time he did he sold out literally in a day or two.

Hopefully the AR15's will be here by March 22nd and we will post if they arrive any sooner!

ETA:

I hope it's not a real pain but it would REALLY help me if the guys that want an AR15 rifle email me at AR15@hendersondefense.com (AR15@hendersondefense.com) and let me know. I apologize for making this more of a hassle but again, it would make things much easier when trying to contact you guys when they are in.

So is the RPK price going up ? Is everyone who signed up & emailed
you already going to get one or will there be another sign up when
you actually get the RPKs ?

This is ONLY for the AK47 and AK74 rifles that are manufactured by Henderson Defense Industries. Any previous orders do not apply and neither do the RPK's that are pre-ordered :)

Send me the email with the heading "approved add to RPK list" and of course we will offer the original price :)

Please understand that there is NO price increase for the RPK's or ANY OTHER weapon that we have PREVIOUSLY pre-sold. This is for NEW rifles only that we are manufacturing. I probably shouldn't have said anything and caused so much confusion :confused:

will you be installing mag-locks on the rifles, or otherwise making them California-compliant?(dissasembling and selling as a 'parts-kit', removing pistol-grip, etc.) I want to make sure my FFL will accept it when it arrives and there's no confusion.

There are a myriad of sources for mags and mag locks, should you choose that route over a MMG.

I'm guessing Henderson is going to focus on rifles rather than CA compliance.

Doug literally just got off the phone with our rep and said that everything still seems to be in order for the RPK's and AR15's to ship towards the end of the first week of April.

She also said that she has twenty (20) .223 AK47's on the way to us right now. We are going to modify these for California use and HAND-CHECK each rifle for straightness and no cant issues. The pistol grips will be removed and the 30-round magazine will be permanently modified to only hold 10 rounds. I will post this later when I get back.

Hi Folks,

Doug has been on the phone everyday with Century trying to get the EXACT day that the rifles will ship. We keep getting told that it's the first week of April and that's all they give us. They are sending us a new batch of 7.62x39 rifles this week but this shipment will NOT have the RPK's.

I really wish I had them for you guys but we are at the mercy of Century at this point. We have the rifles reserved for us and it's just a matter of shipping. As stated above, there is no deposit required for these RPK's because I have a policy of NOT holding on to customer's money. Doug is the new salesman in the office and is slowly phasing Justin out so he can be in the shop 100% of the time.

Doug is the new guy in the office and has caught on quick. He is handling all customer sales right now and will doing dealer sales as well. If you guys have a local gunshop that needs a distributor/dealer to purchase firearms from because we LIKE to deal with California, give them our contact information and Doug's email address: RDouglas@hendersondefense.com

Hi Folks,

I apologize for the lack of communication on our part. Everybody that emailed us PRIOR to the cut-off date is confirmed for the RPK purchase. When they arrive, we will be emailing everybody on the list and posting here that they have arrived.

This will probably be our last pre-sale from Henderson Defense because we received at least 500 emails for people who wanted to purchase them and another 500 from people asking if they got on the list and if the rifles have arrived. We will just post all future sales to the website once the rifles arrive and make announcments on the various forums.

thanks,
Ron

Actually,

I can't speak for everyone, but I appreciate the fact that Henderson Defense advertised the presale here. I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. Do you guys have some sort of mailing list that people here can get on? That way if you do have a sale again, we'll know, just in case you guys decide not to post specials in these forums in the future.

Rem1492

After some digging, courtesy of ak47.net,

To all on the RPK list. This is Headhunter22 from H.D.I.

We are very sorry that these rifles have not yet come in. The manufacturer has been promising these weapons to us and swears we will still get them, but it is my understanding that other dealers were upset about how much we offered them for and so the manufacturer has been stalling on filling our order as a courtesy to them.
We stopped accepting new orders after 150 were pre ordered and that was prior to my coming on board back in March, yet people continue to email us asking to be on the list. We are sorry but we will not accept any more orders for these RPK rifles.

When the RPK's do come in we will contact people in the order in which they signed up to verify that they still want them, and collect payment. In the event that these rifles come in and you have spent the money you had set aside, do not fret. H.D.I. is willing to work with you the best that we can, we won't simply tell you tough luck and go to the next guy. That said please understand that we cannot hold 150 RPK's for 6 months either, but we will make every attempt to work with you.
We greatly regret that these rifles still have not arrived, and are only glad we didn't accept payment from anyone. We will not make any offers for products we have not yet received from this manufacturer in the future as we hate to let down any of you, and it is apparent that this manufacturer is unable to deliver on the orders it has taken. If it is any comfort, H.D.I. has almost 500 rifles of various types on order with the unmentioned party, we have received 30.
We are a small growing manufacturer who cares greatly about our quality and our product, and can't apologize enough for this situation. We hope to deliver products and services that will make each and every one of our customers happy, and are striving to do so. Please accept our apologies.

When the RPK's do come in we will contact people in the order in which they signed up to verify that they still want them, and collect payment. In the event that these rifles come in and you have spent the money you had set aside, do not fret. H.D.I. is willing to work with you the best that we can, we won't simply tell you tough luck and go to the next guy. That said please understand that we cannot hold 150 RPK's for 6 months either, but we will make every attempt to work with you.
We greatly regret that these rifles still have not arrived, and are only glad we didn't accept payment from anyone. We will not make any offers for products we have not yet received from this manufacturer in the future as we hate to let down any of you, and it is apparent that this manufacturer is unable to deliver on the orders it has taken. If it is any comfort, H.D.I. has almost 500 rifles of various types on order with the unmentioned party, we have received 30.
We are a small growing manufacturer who cares greatly about our quality and our product, and can't apologize enough for this situation. We hope to deliver products and services that will make each and every one of our customers happy, and are striving to do so. Please accept our apologies.

I'm honestly in no rush anyways. After buying the 1919A4 and PPSH41 I'm kinda broke. So this just gives me time to gather the extra funds. At least I know I'm on the list (well as far as I know).

I'm not suprised by this. I recently purchased a rifle from Henderson, and when I emailed over a copy of the FFL - I asked a question that was never replied to. I know the email was received because the rifle was shipped to my FFL. A few days later I sent another email asking a different question which was acknowledged by Ron, but not answered. He more or less said he'd get back to me. Another week passed and I never heard back, so I replied to Ron's email asking if he had an answer for me and I still haven't received a reply. Now I've got my rifle ( "certified" Wasr 3), and it came with a threaded barrel, no muzzle brake even though the box said it had a slant brake, and the wood isn't darkened like they advertised. I ended up re-staining myself. The website also advertised that the rifle was on sale for that weekend only, and I'm willing to bet I paid full price as the site has said that for several weeks now.

Henderson Defense isn't the supplier. All of this falls on Century. They at least told HD that they will ship. Remember there's 150 orders. A big thanks goes to Henderson Defense for selling to us here in Cali.

Very true. I was pissed by the poor communication, but that's still not going to stop me from buying another rifle from them. There's too many out of state dealers that blacklist us in CA.

I understand that they are at the mercy of somebody else, I am actually cool with that and am willing to wait. What sucks is that we have no Idea who is even on the so called list, and why have they posted on other sites with updateds and not this one. It's just really frustrating being left in the dark and passing up other possible great deals.

Many people here understand the situation with Henderson Defense's hands being tied. I think it would put everyone's mind at ease if that list was sent out.

At least that way, the people who are on the list can have the peace of mind that they will eventually get their RPK and the people who aren't on the list can just move on.

Can we just get a list already?:confused:

The reasons that we can't get the RPK's yet is beyond our control at this time. The owner of HDI placed this order with Century MONTHS ago but others have derailed this so far. This has become one big cluster f**k and I am getting calls everyday about RPK's.

I have taken over many of the function for Ron because he has been commited to some other business (and will be for another month or so). Justin and Jim are still building AK47's and Andrew is packing away but the RPK's haven't arrived. I am trying to move some new products until Century comes through for us (if they do) and I will post an update hopefully this week.

If any of you need to speak to the owner, he will be in the shop on Thursday and will answer any questions for you.

I got one from Classic Arms. And am getting a Henderson, curious about the finish. Mine has the carry handle but the wood was unfinished. I used Tung to coat my wood, if Henderson is doing that FOR YOU then be very happy as the wood is a PIA to get off on these.
The carry handle is useless anyways.

The big issue is the bipod, its a PKM bipod, not an RPK bipod. no big deal as it works the same, but if you are an AK purist you can find and put an original romanian RPK bipod on it (requires pushing off the front sight with pins).

The rifle is a beast but its very accurate and smooth. You have to consider, the RPK rear adjustable leaf sight is worth $70 alone. Then a 40rd mag, etc etc.... this is basically $299 for an RPK.

Here are shots of mine

Unfinished wood and typical romanian fuzzy finish like WASRs,
http://photos.imageevent.com/remy1492/salbostg58/stg58/websize/_MG_0286.JPG

Here is the nut and bipod as it comes,
http://photos.imageevent.com/remy1492/salbostg58/stg58/websize/_MG_0282.JPG

And here is the nut and bipod as it should look after replacing it (note: this is actually my BG RPK-74) but it goes to show how the RPK bipod does not have those little pins and hinge to remove it quickly. I dont know why century imported the wrong bipods, oh well.
