Has anybody ever tried making a tripod mounted twin AK? I have seen the kits gatlingguns.com sell and don't really like the look. Plus, they are expensive.

I have made twin Ruger 10/22's with MG42 stocks that mount on a tripod. They have cross linked BMR Activators (cranks).

I am thinking of doing something like this with a couple of Romy kits. These will not have stocks or pistol grips or any wood in the handguards or gas tube.

The mount will not be a problem, though I need to find or make a tripod.

Here is a pic of my current twins:

get one of the cheap tripods from interodnance, they are like 80 bucks and are after ww2 anti aircraft ones. we are using them for the 1919's- so 2 ak's should be no probelmo at all. mike

Cpt_kirk, how is the fit and finish of the 10/22 conversion? I can't stomach the krinker plinker conversion for the 10/22, but the mg42 doesn't really look bad at all.

There is an AK twin mount that positions the rifles on their sides (gas tube towards each other). I can't find the link for it right now, but I'll keep looking.

There is a little more linkage involved because of the triggers being positioned horizontally instead of vertically, but it doesn't look too hateful.

EDITED TO ADD:

Here are the pics of the conversion I mentioned. I believe these belong to FTF on Gunsnet.







This is a one-off project and you can see the amount of work that went into it. If this were available as a kit, I don't think this would be a cheap. Mucho work = Mucho $$$$$

It's a plastic stock and fits like a glove.

I just sold an MG42 AA tripod with 1919 adapter. I have an MG42 ground tripod now.

I may wind up buying another AA tripod.

Any chance of getting some close ups of the linkage?

Sorry, those are the only pics he posted. Look him up on Gunsnet and you may be able to get some closeups of the linkage.
