The M10-762 is an industry leader when it comes to a high quality AKM. This stamped receiver AK is built by the legendary Cugir Arsenal a part of Romarm in Romania. Romania is one of the most famous factories for AK firearms in the world and for very good reason. In 1963 Romania began producing their very own AKM variant the PM MD63 and shortly after the PM MD65. Romania had been given much of the Soviet tooling and technology needed to create their AK systems when they were a part of the Warsaw Pact. Romania was one of the biggest manufacturers and would make complete rifles for Warsaw Pact allies but also components and parts that would either be finished by another nation or finished per spec in Romania. Poland and East Germany would actually use many Romanian components to meet demand.
After the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Warsaw Pact Romania continued to produce outstanding quality AKM firearms for their customers and allies. The end of the Union did not mean the end of Romania, and the Cugir Arsenal expanded by making commercial rifles as well as military contract rifles. Romania introduced their export series the AIMS rifles which included AIMS-65, AIMS-75, and AIMS-90 AK variants. They also produced civilian commercial models with the WUM and ROMAK series of AK's. In 2010 Romania continued their civilian commercial line with the M10-762 and partnered with M+M Industries Inc. Romania utilized brand new components and forged components. M+M would fit the rifle variants with the proper 922(R) parts and nice modern furniture and accessories.
