Semi Auto 7.62X39 RPD Carbine

he R.P.D. was the first machine gun designed to fire the 7.62x39mm cartridge. The R.P.D. platform has been issued by many countries including the Soviet Union, China, Egypt and former Eastern Bloc countries. The R.P.D. was also used by the U.S. SOF in Vietnam. DSA has modernized this battlefield benchmark with features such as a newly designed 7075T6 alloy lower and proprietary rail handguard. With these new features you can outfit your R.P.D.system with any M16 style adjustable stock, giving the end user greater versatility. The rail handguard allows the mounting of a variety of accessories, including optics, lasers, flashlights and foregrips. Compared to the old wooden handguards, a foregrip added to the new DSA rail handguard is extremely helpful in heat dispersion and improving overall effective operation. In addition, the DSA barrel is fluted and shortened. This reduces weight and helps keep the barrel cool. A very effective, proven design flashhider has also been added. These features have reduced the R.P.D. weight by almost 2 pounds.
