I'm looking at his soviet AKM stock sets he has for sale here , just wanted to know what I should expect to pay for these? How do they look once you get them? Or should I just go with a polish stock set?

I just got a SA M7 carbine, I want to make this thing look just like a real soviet AKM as close as possible to details. I think it would be a great collectors item to have something that looks like this.

Any Kalashnikov historians or experts are much appreciated for the help in this project.

PS I have a ton of US compliant parts that were given to me for a sale at the last gunshow and stuff I have picked up. So I should be ok for switching out these items.

Thanks Jake.

You will still need to find the buttstock, which is the hardest part to find..... Not impossible, but close.

ETA-

The ones Tantal has are for the AKM with stamped receiver.

If you want that look, I would contact Z-recto-

gray_son@hotmail.com

He can do up a nice US made clone for you.. Either a whole set, or just the buttstock.

Rusmilitary.com-

www.rusmilitary.com

Has the unique 47 pistol grip and lower handguard. Perhaps for cheaper then Tantal. The standard AKM upper handguard can be used.

Thanks stottman, I'll check Z recto out and the link.

I've heard nothing but good things from Z. Can he match the Soviet wood pretty well I wonder?

He can match anything you have.

Yes.. An 47 pieces are a common request, so sure he had it down by now.

Wow looks good to me. What was the price tag on that if you don't mind me asking?
Did you supply him the wood?

I supplied the wood. Not sure what the cost for the refinish was.

Wanna sell your set .


I have another question, which you would know probably. On the milled stocks, is there the small hole in the buttstock for storing your cleaning tools like on all stamped buttstocks?

BTW thanks for all the help and suggestions I really appreciate it Stottman.

No, not for sale... I think I have about $250 in each set.

Yes, there is a spot for cleaning tools.

greentimber has a milled buttstock for sale on the EE. I bought one from him and it was very nice.
Link Posted: 8/14/2005 4:48:08 PM EDT
I just sold that one I think. Ruseller has a new milled buttstock listed on gunbroker.

The ones Andrei has are modern Reproductions.. Might not be the same finish quality, as the Russians seem to have forgotten how to do this.
