I might just leave it alone and buy an after market stock, not sure what a folding stock will do for me anyway.. I've seen some folding stocks online for $35. not a big deal at this time. I have to replace the front post sight, I noticed it was loose, turns out it was broken. Didn't care much for the black pin anyway. I ordered a few different colors and an adjustment tool as well. Thanks for the replies.

I think you have an AK that is a bit different then those you can purchase today. No muzzle brake. It may be pre ban. I would suggest grinding that weld off to keep it original.

Any info (importer or maker stamping or numbers) on the side of the receiver or the front trunnion? It might be easier to drill out the rivets on the rear trunnion and install a new one for either a fixed or folding stock. Keep the old one for parts.

That just doesn't look comfortable; i vote put a collapsible stock on it. I have a collapsable stock on my SKS, and it is sooo comfortable.

DO NOT grind anything off. It is a muzzle nut not a brake. Don't do anything until you know what you have.

@markb I am suggesting he grind the weld in the folding stock to restore the folding function. Look at the pictures he posted.

I am NOT suggesting he grind off a nonexistent weld from off of a nonexistent brake.
