Can this be done, or does it require a lot of know-how and/or tooling?

Hmm... okay. So it might be easier to buy a receiver that's already made for an underfolder and then buy a Russian AKM parts kit for $200 or so, right? Any idea where I can find such a stripped receiver (not flats)?

Or you could get a $99 Romanian side folder from Sportsman's Guide that's supposed to fit all stamped AK variants. Of course, that might mess up your US parts count.

I could... but I really like the look of the underfolder...

The Sportsmans Guide has an underfolding stock for stamped AK's that says no gunsmithing required.

www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=143524


Anybody have any experience with them?

Thanks. It says "no gunsmithing" but then also says "This product is sold as a replacement for an existing folding stock" - could that be why it doesn't require "gunsmithing" to install?

They seem to have screwed up the text, seeing as they also say it's a steel side-folding buttstock in the description for the underfolder. Clearly in the picture it's a standard underfolder, which will require fairly extensive work for a standard AK.

Seeing that $29-$39 dollar stock (the sidefolder) "on sale" for $99 has completely turned me off to ever buying anything those fuckwads sell ever again. What a big fat crock of crap, THAT is price gouging after the ban at it's finest... Did they themselves not use to carry it for around $39? Oh and if I read "Fierce!" as the description of a stock again I'm going to vomit something Fierce!
