    So need a decent SVD.

    It was my understanding that FEG was no longer producing firearms and that the Hungarian military was upgrading their existing AKM's. Their reasoning was sound, they have plenty of 7.62x39 ammo and can upgrade their rifles in inventory rather than going to a 5.56NATO caliber. I believe Bulgaria overall is doing the same thing, though they did produce some rifles in 5.56 but only in limited numbers as well as dropping the Russian 5.45 round altogether.

    Here's the FEG AK-63FM

    Your understanding is false.

    FEG still produces but it is in a new location and using newer assembly lines.

    The CZ for the Hungarian army will take time to do and replace, meanwhile FEG still refurbishes and maintains what is given and we still have parts and are making new parts.

    We just aren't a full time production factory like we were before.

    Just a smaller assembly shop.

    Well if you are going to produce AKM's for importation, be sure they have side optics rails. I know Arsenal brought in a bunch without optic rails and they sat for a long time it seems. The used ones with optic rails are being bid up higher than the new ones without rails.

    We only have what we have until we set up the new tooling.

    I saw the pictures of the new SA85M's and they don't have bayonet lugs/cleaning rod retainers.

    In all honesty, you should consider trying to bring them in and unban them properly stateside.
