Hay, new to this board.
I just got a NHM91. Its an RPK with the butthole stock.
I am looking to replace the stock.
I see the VEPR has a RPK receiver, would the stock from a VEPR fit the NHM91?

VEPR stocks are made to fit the slanted receiver they have.

Why not go for a Russian RPK stock for it?

I can help you out with one of those.

I need US made stock to be legal. I assume that the VEPR stocks are US made.
What US made stock will fit the NHM91 without alot of work?

Not necessarily.

If you are going to convert it, all you need are 5 US parts.

If you add a US trigger group, p-grip and a gas piston, you are there and can use an imported stock set.

As for what US stocks will fit, if you want wood, Ironwood Designs has solid and lamianted stocks, K-var has polymere stocks.

Even with these stocks you will still need mroe US parts to be legal as the stock only counts as 3 parts, butt, HG"s and p-grip.

Really need to know the receiver type, If stamped, straight or angle cut. I put a Ironwood laminate on my milled NHM91. It needed a little fitting work, but not bad. I 'kinda hate to post the pic of it here with Z_Recto looking on, but it was my first attempt at finishing AK wood. Mine had the dark stained/painted thumb-hole.

I went with Ironwood on mine and retrofitted the FSB to original specs.

Where did you get the fixed legged bipod and muzzle brake/hidder??
I got the CDNN NHM91 adjustable leg bipod but its tooo small to fit on the barrel.

How do I tell what receiver I have?
The Norinco I have is a stamped. It has a 90deg right angle where the receiver and stock come together.
SO I guess its a straight cut stamped.
Is the RPK stamped receiver the same size as a stamped MAK90

So what US or Imported stocks, wood or plastic, will fit with little to no fitting?

It's a chinese bipod...........got it from the parts bin at Ohio Rapid Fire. Kalashnikox may be able to identify the exact source.

The flash hider is off the Romanian PSL/FPK and uses 14mm threads.

The wood is from Ironwood Designs.

The receiver is the same thickness/dimension as the MAK-90.

Did you have to fit the bipod or did it just mount on?
How does it mount on the barrel, clip or nut/bolt/screw?

Z_recto,
Got a pic of the Russian stock?

Where do I get a US parts kit for the NHM91?
Are all the internals of AK's universal?
I got a US kit when I bought my Yugo RPK kit.
The kit is marked #KI504B. Will it work on my NHM91?

Sorry for so many ???'s.
I never owned or knew much about AK's other than a FEG SA85M that I had for 3 days then returned it for a SAR8 :grin:
Now in the last month I was traded a NHM91 and bought an Yugo RPK parts kit.

Clamps on with a roll pin holding it closed.

The Russian set I have has lots of storage wear and will need to be refinished, but that is not a big deal.
I do not have a pic of it in particular, but it looks/will look like this one.


In addition to the refinish, it will need to have the front of the lower HG modified to fit the Chinese HG retainer and the rear of the lwoer thinned to fit into teh Chinese recevier.
The tang slot on the buttstock will ned to be lengthened as well.
I can do all the mods if you wanted the set.

It is a lot of work, but the results are impressive.

Russian wood is the best thing to make your rifle stand out from the crowd.

As for your US parts.

Pretty much all AK internals are interchangable.

I do not know what type of US parts you have now.

Where did you get your US parts kit?

The US parts kit is from CIA.
Is Centurys US parts any good?
Sorry, I forgot about this thread.

CIA trigger parts are useable, though not the best.
A lot of guys use them without any complaints.
You may have an issue with trigger slap or a not so smooth trigger, but these came be remedied with a little easy work.

Century's gas pistons are fine and I have used them on several builds.
I have never heard of any problems with these.

These should work out fine in your Chinese rifle, but if you want to have a better trigger group, a Gordon Tech/Tapco G2 set is hard to beat.

I cant help you with the bipod other than to say post some want to buy ads and hope that something turns up.

I need the bipod, too, if you have any luck finding any. Does it look like the CDNN could be milled out to fit on the larger diameter barrel. I put a FSE stock set on my NHM-91.
