Hi my name is Alex and I am from Holland
I need some help from the experts. I recently bought a ak47
but now i would like the change it to something like this
On paper it is an Norinco
but the simbol for the automatic mode is (Infinity) the turned 8
So my questions are :
1) Do you have enough information to determain what kind of an AK47 this is
2) Where can I buy this kind of modifcation for my Ak47 (it should be shipped to Holland)
Definitely try to find a picture of your rifle, so we can get a better idea exactly what you have. Being in Holland, you could have very different rifles than we do here in the US.
First questions would be: is it a stamped receiver or a milled receiver? (a smooth or dimple in the magwell area, or a milled out "depression.")
If you are wanting to mount a scope to it, I'd recommend either using the side scope rail, or if you don't have one, have a gunsmith put one on your rifle.
Let us know what you've got, and we'll try to help you out.
The infinity symbol is a Hungarian mark, Is the front trunnion rivets side by side or are they staggard? Show a pic of your rifle. McM
Are you required by your country's laws to have a thumbhole style stock on your AK?
I think you would be much happier with a standard looking stock set from www.k-var.com
The standard style stocks are far more comfortable to shoot with and IMHO look better.
You've got a fully automatic AK? How does one go about aquiring one in Holland?
Maybe I should move there......
The Choate stocks are better quality but for heat shields in the hanguards something Bulgarian would work well. The entire Choate set is $54.45 US plus shipping but you would have to get someone to ship one to you. Post pictures of your rifle.
I have to disagree. I once had that exact setup with the Fiberforce Stock on my MAK90. I have since changed the thumb-stock, but kept the plastic front handguards. I have not had any excessive heat problems with them (even after bump-firing a few mags in a row). I'm not crazy about the looks of the handguards, but they are very full in the hands. Which helps me since I'm a decent size guy with big hands.
It took some time but I've got some pictures
So the questions are:
What kind of AK47 is this Chinese or Hungarian or other
what kind of receiver is it
And how can i mod it to
I know that the pictures are extremly big but I can't help it for the moment
Both sides are needed to be able to ID the rifle. BUT, from what you've already shown, I can safely say it's a MILLED AK-47 (full-auto) receiver. Interesting though, is that I don't see a bayonet lug on the gas block.
So you'll have to find a stock set that is for a MILLED AK receiver. Most AK stock sets are for stamped receivers, and those won't work with your rifle.
Here's a stock set I'd look at if you really wanted plastic.
But personally, I'd rather have THIS stock set!
I'm not sure if any of those thumbhole/skeletonized stocks will fit on milled receivers.
