General Information[edit | edit source]
The PMD-63 is a Romanian gas-operated clone variant of the Russian AKM assault rifle. It is designed by the Romtechnica company in pre-1963 and adopted by the Romanian Army as the standard service rifle in 1963. Though the rifle ended its military service for the Romanian Army in 1986, it is still used today as reserves and as the standard service rifle of the Romanian Navy. The PMD-63 is used by numerous countries around the world as well as non-state organizations such as the Provisional Irish Republican Army and the Islamic terrorist group, the Islamic State (IS).
The PMD-63 retains all of the features that are included in the AKM assault rifle. However, though, the PMD-63 comes with an integral wooden vertical grip on the lower handguard which is not included in the AKM. Due to the fact the PMD-63 is an indirect clone to the AKM, it is simple to handle and use and easy to manufacture. The PMD-63 uses 7.62x39mm cartridges.
