...I bubba'd (EDIT- defiled) my Vector! :eek:

Ok, before anyone gets excited, this rifle is Kali legal. It's 30.25+" in the folded position, has a JJPerl bullet button and a 10/30 mag. The parts are all U.S. made so there are no 922r compliance issues.

This is the ATI AK Strikeforce kit from these guys:

http://www.atigunstocks.com/products.aspx?category=51&id=2

I have been waiting for this for about 60 days and it was just released this week.

Admittedly, this is NOT the best looking folder BUT it is Kali legal length folded with the AK-74 brake. I did not use the upper handguard/rail included in the kit since I plan on buying an Ultimak mount for it. The folding foregrip is a CAA unit.

Quality of the parts seems good, better than Tapco. Luckily I had a good drill press and a variety of tools to fit the stock correctly. I like the adjustable cheek piece and love the fact that the stock folds AND telescopes. Although it appears that the large hinge would prevent a good cheek weld, this is not the case for me.

For $99 this was worth a look and I was ready to send it back if it was marginal quality. I think I'll keep it!

Before you beat me up too badly, you have to understand that I owned a TR7 AND a Pacer in the 70's and liked them!:nuts:

Yep, it's ugly!

Love it OR hate it, here are some pics:

Or barf bag :puke:





Seriously though, if it makes you happy, go for it.

What is the definition of "bubba'd". Before yours(:43:), all the guns I'd seen labeled "bubba'd" were one I liked the look of.

Edit: That sounded more offensive than intended, I share the same sentiment as JeffM, as long as you like it that is all that matters.

If it:

1) Goes 'bang' when you pull the trigger;

2) Makes you happy, and;

3) Pisses off the likes of Boxer, Feinstein and Clinton:

Then more power to you!

Enjoy it!

(Looks fine by the way...)

Ewww. I wouldn't buy anything from ATI. You should have gotten a Romanian style folding stock or an ACE external receiver block. The CAA pistol grip is nice though.

Looks like an airsoft gun now. Nothing beats wood on an AK.

Wire folder would put it short on OAL, he would have to add a couple inches somehow.

I use a Tantal style muzzle brake on mine.

Hey, at least you don't have 20 pounds of rail on the thing.

I'm a fellow AKholic but wow, that's a "busy" rifle. If you like it though, go for it.

The ultimak is a great mount! I use one!

Loose the PG and use a normal grip in black!

:shifty:hmm, I think you're trying to disguise the country of origin.:D I'm guessing it's a feg receiver hungarian. I like the tdi handguards better. you can buy a k-var 74 folding stock that bolts to the standard stock trunnion. A guy makes a akmn flash hider in the US. that would be a better set up in my opinion.
