Default Small or larger order pricing change

$21.66 USD/belt by the full case only ($1212.96 per case), Ex Depot, United States for fast, convenient CONUS / domestic delivery, subject to prior sale.

After 1 July, 2013 this above price will apply to orders of 10 cases + because this price is a volume 20ft sea container price in which our company sees link production and sales as a strategic complement to our 7.62 x 54 ammunition production to support the dominant 7.62x54R machine gun; the excellent Soviet pattern PKM series (for which most of our ammunition in this caliber is made). The above price will still apply to 10 + cases, but orders under 10 cases will be sold for $24.00 USD per 100rd belt with starter tab or $1344.00 USD per full case of 56 belts to offset the cost of running and shipping small orders domestically. The price of $24.00 USD per belt for a small order is still more than fair when one considers that this is the same next best price for a 20ft sea container of PKM links (approximately 1 million pieces) from other manufactures. After that the next best price that we have seen on the market for the same new production, correctly combat qualified Eastern Standard PKM links from other link manufactures is $29.00 USD for the same belt, followed by $38.00 USD/belt followed by 40.00 Euros per belt for export viable quantities. This makes either of our prices not only more than fair, and the 10 + case truly excellent for new PKM links which is sometimes not understood for the value it is.

The volume case price for less then 10 + cases as noted above will be honoured in the United States only up until and including 1st July 2013. After that the small order price of $24.00 per belt by the case applies.

We are out of stock in our U.S. Depot of the 100rd Aluminum new production PKM cans. Delivery may be by the end of the year and production prices have also not been confirmed as of this writing

Default Not all 7.62 x 54R PKM Ammunition is created equal

A useful question asked by and answered for a customer

The FMJ ball you want is generally heavier ( say between 170gr and 182 ) although there are some 149gr " light ball" that will work with enough recoil impulse for the PKM . Not all 7.62 x 54R is created equal. Additionally, if some is made to European Civilian CIP standards this is not "Eastern Standard Mil Spec" (not to be confused with U.S. Mil Spec) and will most likely fail in a PKM with not enough recoil impulse to run the gas/operate the bolt and belt. The USG already tried this once and was about to do it again until we corrected them (different USG customer as they don't always talk to one another) What you can "get away with" in a AK/7.62x39 is much different in what you can get away with in a PKM. The AK/7.62x39 is more tolerant to bad ammunition mismatches.

Default 100rd PKM Cans

We are still waiting to justify our next import. We need enough goods to fill a 20ft sea container otherwise the import cost becomes prohibitive. The 100 rd new production aluminum PKM cans were just under $35.00 USD each in 5 or more, and we would like to keep them in that range again

How much do you need to order to fill a 20ft?

A 20 ft sea container will take about 197 cases or 1,000,000 PKM links

As for the 100 rd cases 4-500 cans would be an viable import into the US and this is usually a USG order
