I got me a pre-ban just to put this sucker on...after some work I did it!
Also got the ultimak scout rail on it and the tdi grip and foreend.
The foreend also required fitting to work with the scout rail.... pics explain...

Does it fold or colapse?
That looks really good. Did you have to cut off the rear tang? The last three pics don't show so it's hard to tell. Thanks,
the stock is a regular ace socom collapsable stock. It is AMAZING (I'm thinking of getting one for AR now!). It collapses in 6 dif positions, i beleive.
The rear tang is INSIDE the "Buffer tube" / lower receiver extension.
It works quite well and I think the main advantage here is not the collapsing part, but the stock is MUCH more, if not completely, in-line with the bore.
And of course, since its an ace, that cheekpad makes for a great weld, plus I now have ar-like sling options.
The ultimak was 80 i think, the tdi foreend was 50, and I got the tdi grips (fwd and rear) for 30 each. All from blackjackbuffers ........ The biggest improvements here are A. the scout rail. I have an aimpoint for that with an ultra low mount for cowitness. and B. The rear grip. Not only is it G27-ish, but the angle is actually different. It's much more FAL than AR or AK. I also picked up one of his safety levers that has a notch for the bolt and a finger tab for one-handed operation.
The adaptor for the AR stocks is like 20 bucks I think and the stock is new at 180
Altogether, the rifle was 800 (pre-ban and unfired as far as I can tell since '89) it's a 56S. And the add-ons wereabout 400 bucks. BUT the work was a little tiring. Lots of grinding with my drill and some interesting sanding bits. Plus, blackjackbuffers are not the friendliest mercahnts out there, in my personal experience. I won't be dealing with them again. They were not late on shipments or anything, just really really 'curt' for lack of a better word. Like if I asked them to confirm that a certain part fit, they replied "it should" and when further prodded, they got downright snippy. many times.
BUT lowammo is top notch and brightflashlights is now a tdi dealer, so all is well.
I also have a streamlight TL3 in a TDI mount for the AK.... Requires a shim and takes three 123's, but it puts out a few more lumens than a G2 or 6P.
some direct quotes:
It all started after a couple of emails I send out MO and I get this:
(was that so out of line?)
I get this reply:
Okay, so maybe he's joking with me. a little laugh at his own expense.
So I clarify:
then i get this:
WHAT PLANET IS THIS GUY ON!!!!!!!!
He needs to go to the brightflashlights/jtac/gandr school of customer service.
The whole time he's treating me like he's doing me a favor.
[buzzer] ehhhhhhh! [buzzer]
I'm definitely thinking of putting this on the EE. Just thinking for now.
It's an unfired chinese 56S under all that tactical crap, so she ain't cheap.
Plus, non-banned folks can build this out of a WASR.
For those two reasons, I don't think it'll sell at an acceptable price.
But I won't be shooting it for a while, just got me an AK103 to do my shooting with!
No flame intended but Why do you guys do those things to a perfectly good AK?
& Too a Pre-Ban No less!!
They look like Uday & Kusai got their hands on them!
TELL me you didn't want that gold plated Mp5!
