Has anybody that picked up a set notice any cracking down the center of buttstock seam. :confused: They appear to be two halves glued together.

My experience is with only one set that seems to be splitting lengthwise. I like the quality there appear to be multiple voids filled in the plywood before finishing. From the pictures I kind of expected a higher grade plywood to be used. This stock set has me wondering about its durability. If it splits completely it could be re-glued with a higher grade glue for more durability.

Has anybody else experienced this cracking?

Isn't the real McCoy laminated using a resin instead of glue?

This may be a real problem with them, as these were made for airsoft guns if i remember right.

I could have SWORN I read these were made for airsoft, but I can't find any reference to it. If I'm wrong, please let me know. I don't want to taint someone's opinion of these unjustly.

Are you confusing these with the AKMS-U handguards sold earlier this year? THOSE were made for airsoft. I am not sure about this set, but I don't think they are for airsoft.

If these are the same sets I had a chance to handle at Shot Show this year and they looked REALLY nice. Everybody from the company was Asian but they did have a gentleman who translated for them. He couldn't answer if the furniture was for airsoft but said that he was "sure they would fit regular guns".

They made other parts for the M-240 (I own one :grin: ) but I noticed that most of their offerings were airsoft metal/aluminum parts and gears. I asked him if the M-240 parts were made to airsoft or mil-specs and he said that the material was the same either way :neutral:

I don't know if this is the same stuff but it appears to be the same.

thanks,
Ron

Nope they are NOT.

I have spoken to Scott directly and he confirmed that those sets are made for actual AKs to begin with. one made for airsoft AEG will need huge rectanguler hollows in buttstock to house the battery cell, which would be very hard to cover up if those were intended for airsoft rifles originally.

I am a good friend with many that involved in making those wonderful sets avaliable to us AK lovers, and I will appreciate if we would help bring down unproofed rumors like this as nothing hurts a great product, and the businesses that worked hard to bring it to life more than this kind of rumors.

From what I know a AK74 stock set is under development and will hit the market pretty soon.

In the end sorry if I sound harsh in anyways. I just got the news that my grand mother is dying and we are arranging flights to see her at this moment. I am losing a dear relative..dont make my friends suffer too, ok?

If they were made for airsoft, they wouldn't fit any kind of AK, milled or stamped, and would have the previously mention batter compartment.

If they were airsoft, I'dve probably bought a set by now :peep:

Guys...

I suggest we remember that ZRecto here weighed in on these after examining them and gave them very high marks!
This could be just a defective set. It happens. I would send it back for an exchange.


Oh what the Hell! Panicking is much more fun! THE SKY IS FALLING!!! THE SKY IS FALLING!!!
Sometimes I get tired of always being the one who is mature and self controlled. :grin:

I have personally handled a set.
They looked and felt exactly like Russian wood.
As far as 'Airsoft', the krink pistol grip style lower handguard was made for the airsoft, however the wood, construction, and assembly was exactly the same as for the real AK's with the exception of some differences in mounting (for the krink)

That's what I remembered, the Krink handguards. My bad!

Oh crap...I was going to try a set...do think the hand gaurds would be o.k?
Hell, probably not as if they were for air soft, they wouldn't be up for the heat. I bet the glue is different! :sad:

I heard these stocks were made in Taiwan. Is this true? The batteries in some AK airsoft rifles is not in the buttstock. The battery pack is actually in the receiver area on some variants.

That's only on folders 99% of the time. People who use full stock for airsoft only do it to take advantage of a larger battery, so it wouldn't make sense to have a rifle with a full stock wired to the receiver instead.

Laminated wood is just a fancy word for plywood. It has been known to separate or delaminate. I have seen German 98K mausers do it and Romanian commercial grade AK stocks do it. They just basically split somewhere longitudinally. That is why later manufactured commie laminated wood all has metal PINS through the wood.

I stand corrected on this... I was referring to the Realsword Type 56 and didn't realize it too also has the ability to add a second battery in the butt stock until I researched it a little more. I opened my fat mouth too soon. I don't do Airsoft at all but was very impressed with the quality of the realsword rifle due to it's real look and feel.

My other excuse is that it was late and I was tired when I posted my first comment. :smile:

I too am interested in getting the AK-74 stock!!!
