East German KK-MPI-69

I came across this write at The Firearms Blog. I have always found the East German KK-MPI-69 to be an interesting rifle. I thought I would go into a little more depth on the parts of this fascinating trainer.

First the interesting write up at the firearm blob.

Now for some additional pictures of the rifle and some of it’s components.

The rifle and 5 magazines. Note the differences in bottom plates on the magazines. I have found two different magazines over the years.

    I have a fully functional KK-MPi-69 semi autp I built I picked up when they first came in demilled from OOW I think

    it uses the same lower receiver blank, except there are no rail lower rails the internals are scaled down versions of full size ak parts . some parts interchange buttstock, triggeguard.
    the rear trunnion is different but similar. they are not interchangeable. fortunately there are plenty of spare parts

    I have a second kit w/ out barrel, I will be assembling. The barrel is/has been the greatest obstacle, I have a option, which is to us a 5.45mm barrel with a MACE 5,45mm to 22lr conversion adapter, the barrel twist is off, but it will be a plinker

    great little rifle and very accurate

    Hi, I bought parts to build the KK MPI69 and the center support ejector is missing.
    Any chance someone has a cut off one or the deminsions so I can make one.
    Or where to find a complete one….

    I have been hanging on to a pair of german magazines for these rifles waiting to find one.
    I couldn’t wait any longer and got something else.
    If anyone needs a pair of mags with the weight to simulate a loaded 7.62 mag for training purposes, mine has the resin color plate. contact me.

    Michael Vickers inquiry; Desertfoxsales has parts for these.
