    Kurdish ambush video - odd side-folding stock

    This Go-Pro video is making the rounds. Extremely graphic, no matter whose side you're taking. You've been warned.

    What caught my attention was this funky modified stock on one Kurd's AKM. Not sure if they were fixing it or making it more rigid?

    I fixed the link. Board threw some extra code into it for some reason when I entered it.

    There are a lot of sidefolders in Kurdish hands.



    I see a lot of Hungarian fixed stock rifles with sidefolders added.







    Even the occasional Tantal.


    Lots of homemade wood stocks as well.

    I see mostly East German, possibly Polish, some Romanian and even some early EG or Egyptian pattern.

    If it is an unregulated part they seem to have it.

    Looks like that side folding stock has been Khyber'd up real good. Using two wire struts is a cool idea. I like it.

    What good imaginations they have. Now we wait for someone here to replicate that design for a Khyber clone. Do it!

    Looks like the same idea as has been done on the Hungarian AMD
