I found this ad on IO's site:
They are announcing a new x54r rifle (probably Romanian). Given that it has "US-made furniture," what's the chance that a standard AK buttstock will fit it? If so, might a Monsterman grip fit it?
Just curious...
Also, is IO's rifle actually just this SSG-97 in polymer clothing?

WOW! I love that SSG2000 :)

I'm pretty sure that's a PSL-style receiver, which means that the furniture is different. The MMG probably won't fit.

Ouch. I'm interested in buying one, but I don't trust anyone who uses Miva Merchant as their shopping cart software...

Thats what it looks like to me as well. The PSL receivers I have do not accept a pistol grip. They are lacking a hole in the receiver for riveting on the pistol grip bracket piece(no idea what the correct technical term is).
Some people who built their own PSL receivers have cut these holes into their receiver so they could probably use pistol grips.

g76 - not the ssg97 - the ssg2000... it has a p-grip, so this can be mm'd?

This is an SSG-2000 from IO.

The SSG-97 has the thumbhole stock and does not have the pistol grip cut in the receiver. The SSG-2000 differs from the SSG-97 by having the cut for the pistol grip, and having enough U.S. made parts to satisfy Federal 922r "sporting firearms" laws. The buttstock on the SSG-2000 is made specifically for these receivers, and the receivers still will not take regular AK buttstocks. You can put a MM grip on the SSG-2000, or fill in the thumbhole on the SSG-97:

Thanks, 69 -- that finally answered it.

My PSL parts kit came with a screw and nut for the thumbhole stock. After cutting the hole in the receiver, the attached stock was very secure.
So far, I've not found any magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds for the PSL. A fixed 10 round magazine, similar to how Sal fixed his, would be a nice way to keep the thumbhole and/or pistol grip. A tool to remove the fixed magazine and then it reattaches without messing with the top cover.

fixed mag on a PSL is damn near impossible to load from the ejection port because of the rimmed cases, and the extractor rail being in the way, even with the bolt and top cover off it is hard to top load.

a monster man would work on the SSG-2000 if it uses a normal AK screw and nut. the muzzle device is somewhat an issue as there isnt any clear definition of a flash hider, and the muzzle device on the PSL has been advertized as a FH and a muzzle brake, so the detachable mags may be an issue with that.

here is my bullet button mag release for the AK/PSL.


and a video.

mine was built from a kit and the imported receiver, they use might be able to use normal AK stocks, but not sure, they use an AK rear trunion but the curved spots are plates welded to a flat backed receiver, with the front rivet going through the receiver and plates, with the rear one only through the plate, and that might make the trunion tang too long.

Any CA legal SSG-97s?

Yes, they are CA legal so long as you go featureless or locked mag. And daaammmnn, necropost!
