The PM md. 63 (short for Pistol Mitralieră model 1963) is a Romanian copy of the Soviet AKM assault rifle. It was adopted in 1963 by the Romanian army. The main difference of the PM md. 63 is that it has a wooden foregrip attached under the wooden handguard.

The PM md. 63 is gas operated, when it fires the charging handle opens to release the empty bullet out of the rifle and reloads a new bullet from the 30 round magazine.
