    Can I convert my underfolder to a fixed stock?

    It's a non-trivial task.

    You'll need a Yugo fixed stock trunnion, then remove the U/F stock and trunnion, and if you want to do it right - weld all the holes and re-drill correct ones before riveting in the new one.

    So much involved you'll be ahead of the game buying a fixed-butt AK and then selling off your M70AB2. They're good AKs and sought after, I'll never sell mine.

    I was dumb enough(and broke) to sell mine, I loved that rifle it felt so much better then the new cheap AK's. Ever get another I'll never sell it.

    We've all been at that point before; having to sell and later regretting it.

    My "family economy" pretty much forces me to sell a gun to raise the cash to buy another gun.

    Downside is getting into a gun too deep and not being able to resell - or sell at a loss. Gun rich and money poor.

    I have all hope's of keeping all of the guns I've acquired so far. Mossberg 500, g30, g26, and of course the yugo. I understand that sometimes **** happens though. I'm still new in collecting so there are plenty of more on my wish list. For now I'm gonna just build on what I've got and try and become good at using them as I can.

    I've had my pre-ban Mitchell Arms Yugo M70 since 1988. To make it more comfortable to shoot I put on a cheek rest and rubber recoil pad. Now it's perfect and all the AK I'll ever need. It ain't going anywhere.

    I belive mine was a 88" that's kinda funny, it had the stock steel underfolder stock(ab2) and I could shoot it all day w no noticeable soreness from recoil.

    It was annoying stretching my neck to look through the scope due to that high Yugo scope mount, though I won't complain much cause that mount can't be found today. The recoil pad extended the stock to a length which I prefer, but wasn't comfortable with that metal butt anyway. It didn't make my shoulder sore, but was just uncomfortable. Now I really have a great time shooting it.

    Fantastic Yugo you have there G-smoke!!!

    That example is EXACTLY why - despite the revisionist historians view of PolyTechs and Norcs today - that the Mitchell Yugos were up there with VALMETs and Galils as the TOP 3 BEST AKs to be found back in the 80's.

    Thank you, I know it like the back of my hand and have no urge for any other. It's the sweetest AK I've ever shot and over the years I've shot plenty. It is on the heavy side compared to others, but it's built like a tank and shoots dead on so I can't complain. I normally use a Chinese type 63 20 rd mag when target shooting, cause it also has a bolt hold open and being shorter doesn't interfere with my aim. I always wanted to throw a good bipod on, but didn't want to add more weight. Some people add so much unnecessary stuff on their rifles that they look like Swiss army knives. You're right about the Galils and Valmets being great rifles.
