    stock yes, rail probably not. as far as i know beryl has different rear sight block and rear trunnion that has provisions for that special rail.
    look at the pics below

    I built a Tantal in 5.56 (AKBuilder barrel). Added the Beryl furniture.
    I jave a Beryl muzzle device from IO but it is a press on vs threaded and too large ID to thread 14mm.
    Mightuse a shim etc.
    Did not have the rear block and RSB for the rail though.

    You can get pretty close on building a clone from a Tantal.
    But some parts sourcing and cost gets pricey.

    I wanted another 5.56 AK and already have a 5.45 Tantal so I took the easy road.
    Built the kit in 5.56.

    If the Beryl sight block had been available for a reasonable price I would have installed the rail.

    I have the rear block and got one of the later 7.62 rear sight bases with the rail slots.

    Plan to do a 7.62 build with the Beryl rail.

    The stock works well. Good cheekweld and the adjustable length is very practical.
    I have a couple of the 1st gen Beryl sidefolding stocks. Those are nice as well.

    The top one is not quick detach. Those were like $39 and required work to fit.

    Not sure/familiar with the bottom pictured rail.

    That is pretty slick and not badly priced.
    I might see if there are reviews and if positive., I may purchase one for $80.

    The reviews are mixed. A number are very good and some complaints of parts or screws that were not durable.

    The rear sights had complaints on not stable or too far to the rear.

    I think a compact scope or holographic will work OK. Nothing large or heavy.
