    My first AK is a Maadi

    I am new here and to the AK world. Looking to replace the bung hole stock and top hand guard to add a rail. Any thing I should know or watch for on the Maadi, would also be appreciated.

    Welcome.

    '93 AAC Intrac is a good one. Egyptian import stock with rubber butt pad is a little tough to find. Egyptian military trap door butt stock is very difficult to find. I'd look in the MP here and on AK Files or post a WTB for a Russian butt stock.

    And you don't need a rail...

    Can't see picture for some reason but you can cut and reshape the Maadi thumbhole stock into a standard buttstock. I did one a few years ago until I found an actual Egyptian stock. It looked pretty good but and it was about 3/8" longer which actually worked better

    Welcome to the group!

    That Maadi is one of the great oldies! While any European stock set would work, scottyb's idea of a crutch folder and pistol grip is one way to go. Egyptian wood is still able to be found, but if not as I said any Euro wood works and can be refinished to match the handguards with that Egyptian look.

    Interesting muzzle device which appears to be either a true Norinco 84S flash hider or a look-a-like. If you are new to AKs and don't know, the muzzle of AK/AKMs were left hand threads so to remove the device you would turn it "the wrong way".

    Just get a common Romanian Polish or even Russian laminate stock until one turns up ... they look damn near the same.

    There is no muzzle device. The welded nut was removed, but the muzzle brake and cleaning rod were missing when I got it.

    Would you mind posting a photo of the muzzle and front sight base please? Curious. Thanks!

    Guessing the device in the photo is a mirage or that is a photo of someone else's rifle? Sorry, but I know just enough about the AKM to know that there is something interesting on the muzzle of the rifle in the first picture.

    I think it was just a shadow

    Sincerely thank you for clearing that up. Enjoy that Maadi, one of the better of the AKMs imported before imports were banned.
