Which adapter piece do you guys prefer for mounting an AR stock? I just put a midwest industries rail on my 74, now I'd really like to swap my stock for a magpul CTR or something similar.

The Vltor is the best IMO. The others are mostly plastic and will crack or fall apart if (unlike the rest of the weapon) it were "used vigorously."

There's only two plastic ones and even they are made very tough. More durable then Kvar or Tapco plastic ones.
All others are metal/aluminum-billet.
For the most part they are all pretty good but I like This one the best (on the previous bottom page). The drawback for some is that rear tang needs to be cut off and it's not something that a lot of people would be willing to do.

Be aware that This one for example will interfere with most side scope mounts. The sling ear will prevent in lining up with the rails. Other then that it's a great adapter, I cut off left ear on mine and just using stock's QD sling mount.

Krebs stock is a VERY good one as well. It be my choice if I had to do another one.

Agreed. It is stout and well made. I use an MOE on it but am swapping it out for an ACS.

un-traditional may be lighter and add some extra features but classic AK's will always be my favorite.

Nice.
Just need to get some sort of optic for it. Maybe a red dot.

I installed Leupold x2 pistol scope on my Ultimak, might post some pic later on.
I like it a lot, it's a semi-auto version of a scout rifle in a way....sort of.

Not quite traditional, not totally tactical.. Yep, that means I'm posting in both threads! (Kidding)

Yeah probably going with a Primary Arms Micro red dot, Im debating I really like the MI side rail scope mount they say It will be available again In a month It rides really low barely above the top cover and then run a scope but as It sits with a 10/30 mag in It's weight Is 9 lbs. So Im leaning towards the red dot.

Thanks! Definitely agree!
It was supposed to be available today by 11:52am. Apparently my rifle wasn't even shipped there yet. total bummer. They claim it will be there tomorrow.
Anyways, yeah super stoked with my new AK. I know stock will be replaced. Will hang on to its og quadrail for now. Its almost identical to the utg quadrail, minus an extra inch or two of top rail. Looking to replace it with a midwest industries rail for 1/3 co witness for a red dot. This thread is definitely inspirational.

And to @Fiveseven. Awesome AKs! The one with the ubr is sick! Which stock adapter did you use for that set up?

I had just posted an entry on the M10 762 thread in the forums..
Long story short, I won't get mine tomorrow. Turners is locating another one for me.

And @Fiveseven. Nvm.. I'm guessing u used that stock adapter from carolina shooters. New question is... did u switch out the adjustable tube to fit the round tube for the ubr?

I have two SOCOM stocks in two different set ups if that's what your referring to (non ubr)

On milled AK, I cut off both rear tangs and used ACE adapter + round adapter to tube stock, after proper alignment and castle nut adjustment I drilled-tapped side of the stock with 6-32 bolt and lock-tite on all the part.
Same goes for Saiga SOCOM stock, rear tang cut off, adapter secured with top trunnion bolt/nut and side receiver holes... and like the other one, I also drilled-tapped stock from both sides this time with 6-32 1/2" bolts. It's not in the photos, I'll post pics of it in more detail.
On milled AK, the stock is adjustable for length.
On Saiga it's a long stock already so I use it fully collapsed, it can still extend but it would be useless for me with extra length.
Both stocks are newer designed and do not have problems like their earlier models where locking channel was no shallow.

Thanks for the info! Greatly appreciated.
And yes, my mistake I meant the socom. Had the UBR in my head because they look similar and it is a stock I am considering... which I know needs a round receiver

Scout type setup.









Drilled/taped left-right side of adapter to stock.
With two bolts in it, it's very secure.

All mine are lighter or about the same without optics.
The biggest difference being is the milled one, WAY lighter/handier in it's modernized form compared to previous wooden one.

But there's a point in where it becomes unpractical or even unnecessarily burdensome without much gain.
Full steel rails, bipods, dual optics, flashlight size lasers, etc etc....
I say there's a fine line (maybe a gray area as well) when it comes to it.


But hey, it's just my opinion and at the end its all about whatever floats your boat even if it's old two by four with nails in it.

I've weighed mine with all the aluminum rails fitted and it's about 9 oz. heavier than the original furniture even with nothing mounted (good rings are heavy). The plastic and wood are often lighter, but it's the configuration that determines how heavy it's going to be. The moment you put a rail on something, there is an assumption that you are going to fit an optic of illumination of some kind. Heavy duty rings add weight, the optic itself will generally add over a lb. unless it's the smallest and lightest of the red-dot sights, some of which aren't really up for hard use and will break the first time you take them out to a 3 day tactical carbine course, or maybe just drop your rifle.

With a skeleton stock and iron sights, most of your weight will be in the front end. You can save many ounces with a combination front sight/gas block. The Venom Tactical is my favorite, others prefer the shorty AK105 and Krinkov types. My thought is if you are going to do it, why go half way? https://www.venomtactical.com/shop/g...53blvkc1qhmsb4

Current set up:
Troy rail covers
Afg2
Vltor stock adapter
Magpul STR
U.S. Palm 10/30 mag
Everything else is stock. Handgaurd will eventually be swapped. After a few hundred more rounds I'll toss some type of optic on it.
Sorry for the crappy cellphone pics

Looking for a little advice guys. I have tired of the AR platform and am thinking about jumping into the AK, but do not know very much about them. Can you give me your advice on what a solid AK brand would be? With the AR's, I am used to building my own, but with the AK, since it is a new thing for me, I am looking for a strong base that I can make minor mods to in the beginning. I hear names like Galil, Draco, Siaga, Cugir, HK. Now the HK is the only product I know since I own a couple HK handguns. Here are my thoughts.
1) For price, I would like to keep it around $800.00 (before I make mods).
2) Will be used for fun at the range and close quarters if SHTF
3) My current AR's are all 223/5.56 chambered (not sure if that would lean me towards an AK in 556)
4) I am really not sure if I like the classic AK wood or the sleak all black.
5) Something that at some point will allow the addition of a CTR type stock with Buffer.
6) I am not planning on crawling through mud with it, although I would like it capable of that type of use. Just in case.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Saiga with front end (handguard/muzzle end) already done sells for under $500. The rest of the mods are very easy and not expensive. Just like AR's the possibilities are endless on how you want it.
5.56 are more difficult to find mags for, or should I say quality mags.
5.45 is equal to 5.56 but cheaper and mags are easy to get.

With the AR's, I am used to building my own, but with the AK, since it is a new thing for me, I am looking for a strong base that I can make minor mods to in the beginning. I hear names like Galil, Draco, Siaga, Cugir, HK. Now the HK is the only product I know since I own a couple HK handguns. Here are my thoughts.
1) For price, I would like to keep it around $800.00 (before I make mods).
2) Will be used for fun at the range and close quarters if SHTF
3) My current AR's are all 223/5.56 chambered (not sure if that would lean me towards an AK in 556)
4) I am really not sure if I like the classic AK wood or the sleak all black.
5) Something that at some point will allow the addition of a CTR type stock with Buffer.
6) I am not planning on crawling through mud with it, although I would like it capable of that type of use. Just in case.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
If you want a .223 platform go with a converted Saiga or a Galil.

Nice tight fit. The thing is, my AK came with these metal plates inside the magwell (the area where most AKs have the dimples) which are meant to decrease mag wobble. So I have no wobble with the 3 types of mags I have (u.s. palm, pro mag and tapco), but I had to file/shave part of the tapco mags to make it fit. Although they're polymer, they seem real tough, tougher than the tapcos. I think the circle 10s are great also.
And this is my first AK so I'm not to familiar with the fit on other aks.

@Fiveseven. Thanks! You're still the inspirational one around here!
@mindbeyoundaverage. That's a nice lookin paracord sling, might have to grab me one of those.

yea ive got the m10 like you which has the internal dimples and work like a champ. I have some Bulgy steel mags that are a tight fit but heavy. Ill try on of the Us Palms too see the difference a good polymer mag makes if any
