I'm interested in getting one but I'm not liking the wire stock it comes with. Is there anyway possible to replace it with a fixed butt stock? Is it a simple swap? Does it require changing the rear trunnion?

I'm looking to make it featureless with a standard butt stock and an MMG.

they have wire stocks now? weird.

you should be able to just unscrew it, pop it out and place a standard RPK stock in it(with some possible minor fitting)

like this one

I have the standard one with fixed stock. It's for midgets or wearing 6 inches of clothes. I would think the rear trunnion would have to be changed out. You could always pin the stock into a fixed position.

You can also go this route if you want to keep the wire folder with some mods. Very comfortable:

Out of stock right now, but you might want to check by here from time to time:

You do not have to replace the trunnion. Here's my AES10B with a 74's plum stock:

^^^What he said. The stocks were made for wearing a lot of clothes in those cold bloc countries. Ive been debating the same thing on which RPK to get, same boat as you-

The only reason I was going to go with the Romainian was because of the rarity that Atlantic claims it is. Both look like nice guns, but if it really came down to switching out stocks because the wire one bugged me, I would go with the Yugo. If the Romy really is rare as Atlantic claims, I would hate myself for butchering a rare piece (yeah, Im a purist)

There's nothing rare about the AES10B, and no butchering is required. You don't have to replace the rear trunnion or cut any tangs off. There's one screw to twist out and the whole assembly comes off. It doesn't even take a minute.

Got a pic or a link to show that?

I also looked at the Yugo from Atlantic but the Romanian has the chrome barrel where the Yugo does not.

The rifle in the picture above is an AES10B that I removed the wire stock from and installed the plum furniture. I did not write the first two posts from information gleaned on the Net. I have done it and can tell you that there is only one screw holding the whole thing together and the clubfoot stock will fit right in.

I'm not going to pull my rifle out of the back of my safe and pull the stock (and dig out the wire stock in some box somewhere) and take a picture just to prove that some RPK has a screw holding its stock in place. There's a post on ar15.com somewhere just about this that you can find. If you don't take my word for it...:shrug:. Don't see why I would lie to you.
