recently pruchased this one piece hg/grip, anybody know the origins of this? kinda thinkin might be made for commercial sales not sure though. made of polymer/plastic and color is redish/brown. looks kinda weird but when handling the rifle with the grip it feels very secure and has a solid feel, its kinda growin on me. anhybody else have one? might think about painting it black, watcha think?

I have never seen that particular one before. The other ones like this, like the bakelite one with he grip thats the same as a regular PG, goes for quite alot of money. I think its romanian not sure, but this one no clue. Are there any markings on it?

Yeah, those ones are Romanian and go for like $300 if they have the upper handguard with it.

Never seen this one before. Looks pretty cool. Wouldn't mind having one. I wouldn't paint it.. you can dye polymer pretty easily.

Brownells used to carry them in that color and black.

Was gonna order one about a month ago and apparently they're OOS/not even on their website.

Wish I knew who made it so I could search online/look to buy privately.

Secondly: I knew those M10's could be beautiful once the tacticool stuff was taken off

Here is a source for them I found in a thread GrantS made on The AK Forum.

Just thought I'd share it here. Might have to pick one up.

I had one just like that back in the mid 90s. it works with the underfolder style too. IIRC I got it from cobray.

blast from the past

I like the top picture (With that PG handguard).

I won't diss people who use them, but I am NOT a rail fan.
