Underfolding stock

Where can I get an underfolding stock and how hard are they to install?

I have seen some on GB recently.
You'd need the rear trunnion as well as the stock, and hardware to convert a solid stock AK to an underfolder.

Here's a tutorial on installation.

Also you will need to have the same type of underfolder that comes on the gun and trunion you are using. For example there are a bunch of Polish and Romanian under folders here now. They are NOT interchangeable. Their side folders on the other hand DO interchange.

Side folder > Underfolder

Bolts on, bolts off; no permanent changes to receiver.

OAL on underfolders will be about 1" less when folded.

Right Folder > Left folder if optics on a rail are involved

Any Folder > Under folder.

Just checking - no offense intended: Have you shot an underfolder before? Why do you REALLY want/need this specific stock?

Mostly I just like the looks of them. What is your opinion of them?

I'd shoot one before you go hacking up your rifle.

Very good advice.

Folders of 'any' kind have a bad habit of getting loose and wobbly over time. They are great for what they were designed for which is for paratroops and motorized infantry that attack in forced small inclosed spaces.

Also know their cheek weld is also generally too low and the metal stocks will stick to your face in cold weather. The H&K 91's folder is good at this and turning your cheek into hamburger.

It's looking like it is to much work anyway. I guess I will leave it as is. Maybe buy another one that comes with the underfolder.

Good advice. I believe the UF to be more versatile. The rigid stock more functional. Trade offs.

I like my Yugo UF. It's heavy for an AK, but a well built, very solid AK. I'm commando-nothing. So, I wanted the versatility and knew my round count would be modest at best given ammo prices. I do however like the light, plastic furniture AKs I've held. Tempting.

I would not convert to an UF. IMO, buy an UF instead.

I have a romanian wire folder sitting in my closet since I put some Bulgy plumb fixed furniture on it. It locks up really tight. The cheek weld is less than ideal, but that didn't stop me from shooting some good groups at 500 yds.
