All of these weapons are being built at the Izhmash plant...correct.

When did they go into production?

production, not R&D, was in 1992 for exportation.........

per my Izhmash Catalog history

+1

AK74M first issued in 1991. Widely adopted in Russian Army since mid-90s.
Other AK10x are produced in small quantities by same years.

About AK10x

AK-Joe...and ...ViperEH

Could I get some more pics of your AKs from different sides and angles.

I have a 104 in the works right now..(by me) parts should be here tommarrow...except the stock.

Here is a question... I have a Bulgy side folder....or should I hold out for the real deal.

Lets here your opinions on the synthetic folders...

Thanks

I've never used the Bulgy side folder so I can't compare.
If you are wanting a true 100 series look then I think you should hold out for the correct stock.
Shooting the 100 series stock feels just like the standard stocks.

You can see all my pics here.

Hold out for the correct stock... The poly side folders are AWESOME... You really can't tell them from a standard stock when extended. I honestly would have one on all my rifles if the work and parts weren't so damn expensive...

Spooky

A little 104 pRon:


Chris really likes that blue blanket and cardboard...
