I am a total newb to aks, so please forgive the stupid question.

Can you mount an AK-74 folding stock on a Global Trades 1.0mm receiver in 7.62x39mm.

Since the stock is made for an AK-74, which is 5.45, is there any technical problems with mounting it on a receiver in 7.62???

I'm interested in this stock from K-VAR



I would like to put it on my 7.62 kit, but I'm not sure if that would cause a problem or not.

no one???

Yes you can...

It will however require to be fitted. It is not a direct replacement. I will be using the AK-100 series on my Saiga conversion in the near future. Same lock up different stock.

I’m wanting to put one of those stocks on one of the incoming Romanian 7.62 kits I’m getting, as I understand it, it’s not a problem.

What kills me is that you'll pay more for that stock than you did for the whole kit............

Doesn't mean I don't want one too though!!!
I'm just afraid that it would be too short for me, and I dont want to spend $130 to find out.....

you can install that on any AK stamped receiver.......but the rear of the receiver has to to modified, with I believe a 6 or 9 degree angle cut, and the hole for the stock release button has to be cut out in the receiver.........then you will have to cut a slot for the latch in the front of the receiver, then drill up from the bottom of the receiver into the front trunion for the latch spring and pin. not excatly a simple thing to do, a lot of measuring and making sure everything is the right place, but it can be done, if you know what you are doing......otherwise you will just fuck up the receiver.

Does anyone have a pic of a AK-74 side folding stock on a AKMS kit???
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 7:48:33 AM EDT
The stock is about 9 and 1/2 inches long its a nice size for me but im only about 5'7''-5'8'' 145lbs so for anyone thats much bigger than me it would be a little uncomfortable I think. I have one but I'm selling it to a friend because I'm putting the Russian folding solid on my Bulgarian AKS-74 Parts kit I got from K-Var. Its the closest thing to a Russian AK-100 series gun and that's what I wanted I'll post picture of it when I get it done. It probably won't be done until the beginning of the year though.

Ask, and you shall receive............




The top gun in the picture is an AKM (Actually an SAR-1) with an AK74 side folding stock.


The gun on the bottom in the remainder of that AK74 kit. I used a yugo inderfolder on that......

Both have Bulgy hand guards.

I bought that stock from Kvar and I'm gonna put it on my AMD 65 that I'm building
sence I hate the origional stock. It seems to be the same length as an origional wood stock.
It was a lot of $ but I got a good price on the AMD kit as it was missing some of the pins and springs on the origional stock so I justified it.

Thanks

Sorry... I meant to say how much did you pay for the stock? May fault.

K-VAR lists that stock at $129. I'm guessing that's what you got it for.
