AK & Variants Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

It's an LCT receiver; it had the flat rear that I needed for the stock adapter to attach correctly (see custom mods section).

 

Not to my knowledge; DBoys only seems to sell their AKS74 receiver separately. The only way to get a full stock one would be to buy an entire gun.

I originally posted this in the support weapons thread, but they also belong here too. One of these days I'll replace the grip on the DG RPKS74.

 

Cheers,

My refinished AKS-74U handguard finally decided to dry properly (or my patience started kicking in). Therefore, I decided to arrange a little photoshoot outside.

Backstory for the AKS-74U:

Started out as a Dboys steel 74UN. The finish was stripped, and it was cold blued. Turns out that heavy skirmishing in rain really makes it rust, so I decided to give it an oven-cured spray-on finish. I also bought LCT wooden handguards and gas-tube. I didn't like the finish of the wood, so I mixed up some proper shellac and stained the wood with some iodine tincture. I also used a dremel to shape the handguards a little better. A few days ago my Ukrainian tourniquet and Soviet field dressing kit arrived. There also is an LCT steel folding stock somewhere in the mail (it is more realistic than the dboys version).

Then there is the VFC AK-74:

When I first got it, the stock was broken and the front sight canted (I'm getting a new outer barrel of steel for free. Any suggestions as to what I should use it for?). No problem, as I already had a real-steel wooden stock set lying around. The rear sight also looked kind of silly, so I put a real one on it. I also spray painted and baked the whole front end of the gun. For some reason, VFC had decided only to have the receiver painted, while the rest was parkerized. Very silly indeed.
After fixing the finish, I got a real-steel gas tube for it, and put a VFC dummy bolt in there as well. Realizing that it still was missing something, I bought a Dboys GP-25 for it.

And then, I suddenly got a bayonet as well

After all this, my Samsung S2 was starting to get a little jealous, so I got a wooden case for it and refinished it to something more Soviety

There are way more pictures on my Flickr account. The pictures should be clickable.
All questions are welcome :)

PB-

What grip is that on your DG RPK?

 

I was wanting to put a US Palm AK Battlegrip or MOE AK grip on my DG AK74 but wasn't sure how well they'd mount on.

It's the US Palm AK Battlegrip on a Gen4 DG. You will need to slightly hollow out the grip to take the DG's grip tang. I am using a washer that has been filed down on two sides and nestled inside of the end of the grip along with a long bolt to hold it in place. I can provide more pictures in the future.

Ah ok, I thought that's what it was. So by the sounds of it, you had to bore a hole into the bottom storage cover for the mounting bolt to go through. I was hoping to not have to do that, but if I must, I must.

It's actually one of those Asian/Korean/Apple/Fake Mink blankets that I got in Chinatown years ago. I've never seen another one like it so it's like a watermark, but a bit more disturbing.

It's made me feel twitchy a few times!

 

On a related note, has anyone heard if there's an AEG clone of the US Palm battle grip? Sure would be nice if some company did...

Nothing special, just a regular DBoys. Someone offered it to me for $30 because the gearbox was messed up, the muzzle brake was gone, and the charging handle was broken off. I put an AKSU brake on because I don't have a '74 brake, came up with a new bolt, and went over the gearbox and hopup fixing or replacing whatever I didn't like, then rewired it. Not sure what I want to do with it, I have some spare CYMA gearboxes and I could build one up for it, do a little repainting, and get the correct brake, I guess I do need a proper modern Russian rifle.

Steve I like your style: :P

I'm really, really wanting to put wood furniture on this baby. (I know the grip is not typical AK stuffs, but it is soo comfy :) )
