Default Picked up a romanian ..

I picked up a romanian this weekend , fires good and seems to be in good shape . But the side folding stock is missing as are the pins and harware for it . Also what is the hunk of steel riveted on the left side of the receiver ? Would you guys go back with folding or buy a wood fixed ? Is it even legal with out the stock on it right now ? Granted it looks cool as is but very hard to shoot .

Oh, I was going to say where did you meet her and what's her name.

Congratulations on the new gun.

It's an optic mount.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Default I'd recommend the Wood

I'd recommend the wood stock if it will fit....I've got a WASR-3 with a wood stock and have been pleased with it. Depending on your state laws, your rifle should be legal without a stock as long as the barrel is still 16" long....otherwise it couldn't be sold legally with a folding stock under federal laws.

Chances are, it is legal in your state if it was originally purchased within your state from a licensed dealer as they have to abide by all local, state and federal laws or risk losing their FFL.

I will never understand why some people remove stocks from a rifle. It basically turns the rifle into a long, heavy pistol making it ineffective past point and shoot distances.....far closer than what it was intended.

the barrel is 14in . and i knew it was a optic mount .... i just wanted to see if you guys knew what is was . And yes I need to find a stock , im not a fan of putting a bare assed ak close to my face to aim . I was thinking of buying one of those ''parts guns '' that have been cut in half to try and rob the furniture off of it . Prob a overcompensating atf agent sell it on gb lmao . I dont want to ruin it by putting all of the stupid black plastic stocks that look like hell , im more of a fan of the purrty wood

Some guy with nothing better to do, posted up a bunch of AK-related sources where you can find good stuff for cheap.

If I were you I'd just match up a whole new furniture set and finish it up sweet. . .

Wait, it isn't one of those "Draco" AK pistols, is it?

I'm fairly sure that you are NOT supposed to put a stock on them, ATF happiness-wise.

There are PISTOLS with a permanently welded stock- cannot be unfolded. If you have a handgun with a 14 inch barrel, and you add a shoulder stock to it, you have just "manufactured" a Class III firearm- a Short Barreled Rifle. Unless you have the paperwork showing where you paid the BATFE a $200 tax BEFORE making it, you have just committed a Federal felony, punishable by 10 yrs in a Federal prison, and a fine of not more than $250,000. With a VERY few exceptions (orginal Artillery Lugers, original Browning Hi-Powers, orginal Mauser broomhandles) if it has a shoulder stock, OR a forward vertical grip, it had better have a 16 inch barrel, 26 inch overall length- or 18"/ 26" for smoothbores.

Careful, grasshopper- you may be on the verge of a VERY expensive legal education.
