    ZPAP92 Alpha SBR build

    So I finally got myself an AK. I got a M92 because of the compactness and because of my interactions with them in Iraq and East Africa.

    Got a Zastava M92 "Alpha"

    My quest is to eventually SBR it.
    I originally just wanted a Yugo underfolder (found one for $199 with trunnion)

    But i've seen that people have high regard for CNC Warrior (154.99) and it's an easier install

    Or should i just do a russian east german side folder? (89$-ish)

    What are some pros and cons? I know cnc will probably be the most ergonomic

    The right side folder will require an AKM rear trunnion, trimming the receiver a bit and welding up some rivet holes.
    The CNC is the easiest install with only drilling a hole in the existing rear block in the M92.

    If you go the Yugo underfolder style (after you receive form 1 stamp) the M92 already has a virgin trunnion installed.

    But i will still have to drill through the trunnion, correct? So i might as well get a trunnion with the Yugo underfolder stock, right?

    You can go the route of swapping out the virgin rear trunnion for the one that's shown in the picture above with the underfolder. However, that will require you to drill out the rivets for the virgin trunnion that's currently installed, swap in the other trunnion and rerivet the new one. Plus, you'd still have to make the cuts in the receiver for the underfolder.

    From a correctness standpoint, the underfolder is probably better. From a functionality, comfort and ease of assembly standpoint, the CNC Warrior is the way to go. Here's mine. I love the way it turned out.

    Thanks, Do people have a guy they send their rifles too, for SBR work? I rather have an AK guy do it than a local gunsmith that has only done ARs. Or am i wrong with this thought process? I just don't have the tools and space at the moment (all in storage).

    Matt Yeamans/Turbothis/My Guns Northwest or Two Rivers for the UF conversion. Probably about $150 to machine out the receiver/trunion.

    You are absolutely spot on to send it to someone that specializes in AK's. There's a lot to know. You don't want someone to learn on the job using your AK. I 2nd Two Rivers Arms. They specialize in Yugo AK's. Adding an underfolder to an AK with a virgin underfolding rear trunnion is more of an advanced conversion, so you should get help if you don't have experience. Adding the side folder adapter that I used to make the one pictured above wasn't too difficult. If you can drill and thread a hole, you can do it.

    So I going with a Yugo stock on this build. I just like how tight the yugo stock folds up and I love the underfolder look and function. CNC warrior was quite tempting, though.

    I always felt cheated and cheapened out not doing it correctly.

    I was going to have the triangle side folder installed on mine but glad I went with the factory underfolder. I think you will appreciate it more.

    Check your head spacing on yours to make sure its good. Got mine today and it wont go into battery. This is as far as the extractor rotates.
