    yes sir, hardwood buttstock. pistol grip w/ ferrule. if you look at the fsb it looks like you can see daylight through the back which is solid on all other countries i think.
    i think i can even make out the rib on the t.g.

    I would guess Polish or Russian, although the FSB does look milled out on the back. does look to have a hardwood stock, though.

    I would say Russian, might be polish but the wood grip with ferrule throws me off...second pic is Hungarian...and third pic, looks like a Norinco u/f, AK74, and either Norinco or Romanian u/f.

    BR got it as far as I can tell. FSB, GB, top cover and selector. I don't usually go off furniture since it's so frequently swapped out, but this does look like NK furniture too.
