View Full Version : Ca legal AK rifle length question- folding stock

02-14-2012, 9:05 AM
I'm having a CA LEGAL Khyber pass style ak47 built in TX. My problem is that with my triangle folding stock my total length is 25''. My options are to have a rpk barrel cut down to make up for 5''s I'm short or fix the stock so it doesnt fold. I dont really want to weld a stock shut that I just paid $250 for. This is where I need help with the legalities of it. Can I legally run a bolt from the inside of the receiver through the rear trunnion and into the stock to keep it from folding? As I see it, it would kinda be like a bullet button where it requires a tool to make it work. I see no difference in that than using a tool and taking off the fixed stock of a AK making it shorter than the legal 30''.

Thank you in advance for any input you may have to help me stay Ca compliant.

Your options could be just to pin the stock in the open position, no welding or permanence is required as long as your barrel is 16 inches long.

To utilize the folder, add an extended muzzle device, that will make the OAL 30 inches with the stock folded.

Look up AimSmall here on Calgun, he sells extended muzzle devices just for folding stock AKs. I use one on my Polish UF.

....... that's one hella of a rifle, great choice!
