Picked up a UTG Yugo M70 Quad Rail for my PAP. Fit was perfect, I've attached some photos of the install.

Why didn't you just twist the upper handguard off the tube like everyone else?

Rob,
Have you found anymore info on converting it to double stack mags?

I just got my PAP back from Turbothis. http://www.mygunsnorthwest.com/index.html
He milled the receiver and trunion to fit a double stack mag, and threaded the barrel 14x1 LH threads.(ak slant comp works good. I did have to buy a pin and spring to retain the comp)
Matt did a good job on the conversion.
Tried 4 diff type of AK mags, all lock in perfect no wobble.

Problem 1: won't feed rounds
I dremeled a feed ramp into the bullet guide and got it to half ass feed rounds .

Problem 2: The PAP bolt is narrower at the front where it strips rounds from the mag.
It's made to strip from a single stack mag. With a double stack mag, it jumps over the rounds sometimes.
I'm thinking an M70 bolt may be the key.
Tried one at a local gunshop. Might fit if I dremel down the bullet guide a bit.

Ordered an M70 bolt .Back to testing once it arrives.

I also got an M70 wood stock from IWD.( from the wood pile) Fits fine, even with the angled receiver.
M70 pistol grip fits good also.

I'll post more info and pics once I get the M70 bolt , and get it to feeding properly.

Why would he send you the gun back if it didn't feed rounds? In any case, it sounds like you've gotten yourself into a bit of a mess. They don't seem to make PAP's relatively easy to convert like WASR's or Saigas. They should import a more convertable version.

Dunno why.

Anyway, I have a m70 bolt ordered from Apex.
Hopefully I can get it to work.
