Looks like all the new ones do not have a folding stock.



How hard it is to make it a folder?

And it will take up less space in the trash can!

12guage AKs were great at $200 but $1000? Fuck that.

Atlantic still has some folders advertised.

The fixed stock looks proprietary, so I doubt there is a folder available.    If it had a standard AK stock tang all you'd have to do is unscrew the factory stock.  Then you could add any aftermarket folder you want.

hmmm...














This newest batch, just received on Feb 24th 2015 features a slightly different stock than previous incarnations.



Previously VEPR's were imported with an original side folding stock that had been pinned into the open position and then welded in place so the folding mechanism could no longer function. This was always a bone of contention when it came to importing with the welds having to pass U.S. Customs  import requirements prohibiting folding stocks.... etc.



As such, the Molot factory finally bit the bullet and simply manufactured a straight tubular stock for use on these weapons and this group of guns features that stock.  It is a solid one piece unit that goes directly into the rear trunion with no welded open folding mechanism to be concerned with.



It also allows them to be offered at a better price point than in the past, making this a win / win for the importer, distributor, and consumer.



Truth is the old stock wouldn't fold anyway, and these are light and strong. I may even like this incarnation better.
