Still need to do a few things to it.

1. Reshape and either restain, or texture paint with matte black topcoat, or go back to the MI rail I had on originally.

2. Paint topcover to match, or swap to TWS set up for optics mounting

3. polish trigger group. Right now the bolt sticks a little more then it should. I'm thinking the tapco FCG may be a touch on the high side of tolerances.

I'll be a lot more happy when I get the SBR stamp on it. Money is to tight right now.

I love the setup. Very cool looking. Different from the regular AK look.

I'm going to guess (in all my fairly unknowing AK wisdom), either an ACE unit or a Krink/Krink-style folder. :confused:

That's part of it....combined with a scrapped triangle folder that sjgunguy24 rigged up to work with it.

I saw the adapter plate welded to the trunnion and figured aftermarket but I don't know AK stocks very well. I really hope that gets SBR'd; by the looks of the barrel extension, I hope that's your plan as well. :43:

Played a little tacticool dress up with it.

Don't like it. If anyone wants to trade a ultimak for a MI rail, let me know : )

Not my favorite. Honestly, I think a fixed wood stock and the donkey-dong handguard with the draco fore-end would be what i go with. That would be my first free-state rifle, with a can.

I really like the triangle folder. The fore end is coming off asap though. The balance is horrible with it on.

I like the folder as well; it'd be a tough decision, but luckily I'm too broke for a new rifle so Im not burdened by that decision. :p Also, I'm not cool enough like the Die Hard villains or Muj fighters to use the triangle stock folded. :rolleyes: As such, I need the fixed stock. Lol.

I wish. Tight on funds, and the local pd wont sign off, so I'd have to set up a trust also.

Hah, I don't plan on shooting with it folded, I just wanted something as compact as possible. I want to put the MI flash hider back on once I get the stamp, its only about 2" extra past the threads.
