If anybody is considering stepping up to the challenge of joining the newly formed East German Grenztruppen (Border Guards) at East Wind 6, I have written a step by step guide, with plenty of photos, on converting an AKM into an MPi-KM-72, the standard issue Rifle of the Deutschland Democratic Republic, and the Gold Standard rifle for East Germans at Operation: East Wind.

The East Germans are one of the few nationalities (Along with the Canadians and their C7) that do not have an off-the-shelf commercially available Airsoft Rifle for East Wind.

The guide is also helpful if you want to install MPi-KM foregrips on a Romanian model side-folder, to make a proper MPi-KMS-72, which is also acceptable.

The Standard AKM is also permitted, but as the East Germans grow and everyone works toward the Gold Standard, they will be phased out.

Enjoy the guide!
