I'd like to see a photo thread that illustrates those features that are unique to East German AK's. Perhaps we can eventually compile one big thread.

I took some pictures to show the two most common DDR folders.

What's the story guys?

Is this more authentic, or.......?
Well which MPi model do you want to potray??? This all depends on which folder you want, the krutch or the one the Romanians copied.

If your going to use all plastic handguards and a slant brake then the Romie style.

If your going to have a plastic upper and wood lower and a muzzle nut then the krutch

I just saw that ad over on AR15.com this morning. Already sold!

I only have the two, more common, models that I photographed.

I believe that the DDR only put the "crutch-style" folders on their export model MPiKMS-72's, which were sold to Egypt, at least, and perhaps other countries (?). I have read that Egypt later produced that style of folder themselves, but I can't recall where I saw it. Can anyone confirm that?

Yes, I have a 1991 deact MAADI that has this stock.. Seems unrealistic to think they would have purchased a 20 year supply from the E.Germans.
