    I just picked up a nice Ak74 on a trade and want to upgrade the stock to a railed T6 collapsible style and put a red dot on it. Also unsure where to get the goofy side scope mount.

    Its a 4 year old Romanian WASR II CAI with all factory wood furniture and looks unused.

    Only problem is I don't know what parts are interchangeable between the 47 and 74 and most of the websites i have looked at say they aren't answering their phones because of the madness.

    Can someone tell me how I can find out what parts cross and a company to purchase from that would have knowledgeable staff besides Midway or Brownells.

    Thanx

    Collapsible AR stocks on AKs make Baby Jesus cry.
    ARs wouldn't even use them if it wasn't for the buffer tube.

    ak47 and ak74 are pretty much interchangeable, aside from goofy polish variants.

    I have a couple of Saigas and due to wanting them both usable by either me or my wife, I put a Phoenix Kicklite collapsable on both of them. I chose that one over the Tapco T6 because of the angle of the stock when mounted to the receiver. The Phoenix is at a slight upward angle(really more level with the action) which promotes a better cheek weld/sight alignment as opposed to the downward angle of the Tapco. And it would be even more pronounced with a scope. The recoil absorbing capability is not really needed with a 7.62 but the angle issure made the choice easy.

    I have looked at the Ultimak setup for mounting a red dot, I am sure they are of high quality, but I decided to do something different because I don't like having the the gas tube strapped to the barrel - limiting take down ability. So I machined a rail that I will be welding to the factory gas tube in place of the angled heatshield spotwelded to it. I planned on posting some pics when done.

    I've got two Tapco T6 collapsible stocks. One in O.D. Green and a Black one.

    PM me if interested. I'll let them go for $10 bucks a piece.

    They both came off AK 74s and will fit yours.

    Be well,
    Will

    AKs are meant to be simple. Keep the bul1shyt to a minimum.

    Hey Glock23gp,

    Do what you want to your AK.

    Yes, I also agree that a WASR2 looks good as is with the original wood furniture, but having said that, I have numerous AKs, some with wood buttstocks, folding, and collapsible.

    Enjoy converting yours...and get ready to start on your second!:thumbup:

    Be well,
    Will

    While this may be true, I wouldn't consider anything that improves target aquisition as BS.
