Being that Romy kits are plentiful, Yugo fixed stocks are not, and taht Polish underfolders are a bit pricey I had this crazy idea to buy some Yugo underfolders and Romy kits and swap the stocks so I geta cheapo 'Romy underfolder' and a Yugo fixed stock.

besides the contour of the wood stock being a bit different and having to remove the Yugo top cover locking pin, should this be a pterry straighforward swap. i.e. shouldn't be a problem fitting a Romy rear trunion in a Yugo reciever and vice versa?

(always scheming!)

Thanks Duke, guess I'll keep looking for Yugo fixed stock kits that are in stock...

It will work, your not the first one to think of this. Centerfiresystems even offered the underfolder from a POS yugo kit, and the rest romanian so you could do exactly what you want; build a cheap underfolder for a shooter, not a country specific model.

The trunnions are just a little too thin, ive read in the BYI forum you just need to shim it on each side. I dont remember the specifics off the top of my head, but check over there and they will help you do it. Just a thin piece of sheetmetal in between the trunnion and receiver on each side and your golden.

A Romanian rear block is too thick to fit into a Yugo M70 receiver, as is.

Here is a source for stamped receiver Yugo M70 fixed stock kits: www.ammunitionstore.com/.

Works fine. I didn't even shim it. After I riveted the rear block in, the bolt carrier wouldn't retract all the way. I just needle filed the rails a little bit. Romanian front, yugo under-folder. It's my best-shooting AK build. Do it. Works great.

I am betting that a piece of sheetmetal 0.6mm thick on either side of a Yugo trunion will make up the receiver thickness so it will work, being that the Yugo reicever is 1.6mm and the Romy is 1.0mm.


Harlan, thanks for the link. I will give them a call today to find out about their handpick option and see if I can get better bore condition, or at least some cool-ass carvings on the wood.
