Hoping someone could point me towards where I can get a NON folding triangle AK stock. I remember seeing one somewhere, but now can't find it.

While I'm at it, looking for a source for wood AK74 style stocks (with the groove on the sides).

Did you take a look at K-Var? They have tons of AK stuff. Only problem is catching them when they are in stock.

Ironwood Designs (http://www.ironwooddesigns.com/2aprod/1zAKproduct.html) is a good spot for AK wood. Especially if you need the American made parts count.

I only see stock sets, do you know if they sell just the stock with no forearm or grip?

KVar was the first place I looked, all they carry is the Bulgy sidefolder. The one I saw was American (I think) and did not fold.

Don't know, but they seem to be a smallish, mom and pop shop, so I'm guessing if you called or emailed them, they would be able to help you out. It's worth a shot...

There are two versions out there. The one I posted above is plastic. I'm looking for the metal one. It's no longer made. If any of you guys come accoss it, give me a heads up.

Man, that is what I'm looking for (the metal would be nice). I tried ordering, but they are in the process of moving and are not currently accepting orders.:(

So close...

http://www.globaltrades.com/ak_stocks.html (top of the page)

or

http://www.sksman.com/acces/AK47%20stocks%203.php (4th one down)

The first source is cheaper, but the 2nd one includes the rear trunnion, which you can sell for at least $20, probably more.

I bought mine from SKSman, nice wood:

Great, Now I want this one.

From a quick search these seem even harder to find. I'll settle for my plastic one for now.

Any idea where these can be found?

Just for clarification, the ones RPB sells is made of polymer. The aluminum ones are harder to find. I got lucky. I posted a WTB on theakforum.net and someone got back to me an hour later with a brand new one for sale. The stock is milled out of a single piece of aluminum and looks very close to a real side folder. Fit and finish is very nice.

Almost forgot to say, the manufacturer of both versions of the stock is FSE and it's U.S. made. One more part for 922r.

Sorry, yes, the one I got from RPB is polymer. It's fine, but like I said, seeing that aluminum stock is killing me!

I emailed them in vain to see if they still have an aluminum non folder sitting in a dusty box somewhere.

uhhh.... no.

When I emailed RPB to confirm that it is US made, the response was the (polymer) was marked. I have yet to find it, but I know FSE is a US company.

Mine is marked at the top on the fake hinge.
"FSE USA"

The stock is also hollowed out to make it look more like the real thing. Please post a pic of your polymer stock just for comparison when you have a chance.

Thanks, I've got a WTB going over at Gunco right now. They seem to have a lot more AK stuff floating around.

Also, how does that stock attach? From th epic the piece that inserts into the receiver looks empty... like there's nothing to screw into. Do you need to remove rivets?

It attaches with no problems on my stamped AK. It has the holes in the same location as the AK's rear tang. Just like your polymer version. I'll get better pics up later.

Would the non-folding triangle poly stock be enough for a Saiga .308? The aluminum would be more ideal, but it seems they are nowhere to be found.

And the poly ones don't have a sling swivel?

Man, I just bought a Saiga and wanted that stock for the conversion. I didnt know that those stocks are that hard to find! Damm now i gotta do a WTB ad.

It should be fine, for a converted .308 Saiga. They seem to be made of thick polymer. Shooting a .308 AK isn't that punishing either. Both version of the stocks do not have sling swivels, but have the hole cut out for them.

Guess I found this thread late, but my two cents: I was also lucky enough to score one of the alloy FSE non-folders for a little Krink-look project I've been working on. They really are very well made. Apparently they were quite popular around the country during the Clinton AW ban, when that went away for the free American's outside of Kalifornistan a lot of people shelved their FSE non-folders for the real deal.

Managed to pick mine up for somewhere around $50 + shipping, just posted some WTB posts in a few forums. Seem to recall I ended up getting mine from a member of AKFiles, but someone on Calguns responded as well. Spread out your request across any relevant forums, with a bit of patience and luck you should be able to score a good'un.

Well, they are out there. They were popular between 94-2004. I got mine for about that price. Notice the fine milling job to simulate spot welds.

I would pay it. Call me crazy, but the metal fixed triangle stocks are perfect:

- Standard AK poly stocks are not to my liking.

- I already have a wood set on my other AK.

- Installing a ACE Skeleton stock w/ internal receiver block is too much work.

- Installing a ACE Skeleton stock w/ external receiver bloc is ugly.

- Poly fixed triangle stock on a Saiga .308 doesn't make me so sure about the stability.

[EDIT: I just ordered the RPB poly fixed triangle stock anyways. It will have to do for now.]
