Were these ever real on Soviet/Russian AKS-74Us or is it a figment of an overmarketed imagination?
If these are/were real what years would correct for them?

Im sure Tantal will jump in to clarify, but I believe they were prototype and did not go into actual production. They are super, super, super rare.

The pictures commonly seen are of an '86.







Doug (Tantal) made an excellent post years ago about how TsNIITochMash designed plum furniture and sent it to Tula/Izhmash for testing. I'd recommend searching for it if you are interested. Tula never put it into production. KVAR made clones of them for awhile but I don't think they still do.

I ordered some from kvar a couple of months ago, don't know if they still have them in stock though...

I just found a plum AKSU set that I had purchased from Kvar for my Tula build a couple of years ago. I decided to use the original wood handguards for the Tula. I decided to use the Plum set with pistol grip for an AKSU in 5.56 instead. It isn't finished yet, but I will post some pics when complete.
