I'm looking for an AK-74 with an underfolding stock and a barrel configuration like the one seen here www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=122&t=224324 Thanks.

I fixed the link, also, could I just have the barrel cut down and threaded even if it's chrome lined?

I know it's possible to do, I've just heard that cutting a chrome lined barrel can cause problems with the chrome lining coming off. I'm wondering if there's a way it can be done that won't cause this problem.

Thanks CB, now I just have to find an underfolding AK-74

I don't believe Russians manufactured underfolding stocks with their AK-74's. The Krinkovs have skeletonized side folders, and the latest 74's have solid side folding stok. I've tried underfolder and sidefolder, and prefer side folder by far.
Here's why:
1 - You're not restricted to a 30 round max in a magazine with a sidde folder
2 - When deployed, sidefolder feels exacly like fixed stock model, whereas you get a slight up/down wabble with underfolder. Not a problem to 200 meters, but go beyond that and your aim will suffer.
3 - Side folder allows unobstructed use of both the lower handguard and trigger, underfolder mars the lower handguard.

To conclude,
If you want an authentic AK-74 you don't want an underfolder.

A question about the side folders, when open, are they centered behind the rifle? I've seen some side folder that are off to the left which is fine for right handed shooters, but I'm left eye dominant and shoot lefty. Thanks.

Can you shoot a ak lefty and not get hit by shells?

An underfolding AK-74 doesn't exist in actual military service. The underfolding stock was pretty much deemed obsolete by the time the AK-74 came around and really the triangular and polymer side-folders are superior stocks.

The closest thing to an underfolding AK-74 would be the bulgarian .223 export underfolders.

Yeah, they don't even come close to my face.

Does anyone know if the side folding stocks are centered? Thanks.
