I like the polished bolt did you do that yourself?

Also did you do any work on the FCG?

That folder looks cheap.

Why the metal vented upper handguard?

well if it makes you happy.... not my cup of tea though....

D'oh........

The reflection from the flash threw me off I guess.......

I'm not real big on the whole tapco ak style though, I have a romanian but the only thing I have done to it, is polished the bolt and added a RSA FCG

to each his own though......

+1

I have no personal experience with it but the Tapco folders do not have a reputation for being robust.

Does that bipod attach to the gun in some way? I'm looking for a bipod for my PSL but don't want to modify it.

Hey, if it makes you happy, that is all that matters. I prefer a traditional look, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I will not call you either, but I do like the before pic better

i dont use my tapco, but i like to have it around!
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 9:44:30 PM EDT
It's always fun to do things to your gun that make it how you want it, that's whats important. If it's a non functional part and the guy likes it, I don't see any reason to bust his balls.

BTW, whats the big complaint with the tapco stocks? I like the look and was thinking about one on my first AK. Are they that bad and what has been failing on them?

I was good, up until the second pic.

If you want a folder, get a romy side folder.

they are very cheaply made, the pivot pin tends to break(it is also plastic and doesnt handle recoil well), they dont feel right and are too long.

Mine, when unfolded, is a pain. When I fire it, sometimes the block that the stock is attached to hits me in the face. It's kinda sharp.
