Basically, no.. THere are some small subtle differences in differnet eras, but early 74 and late AKM production overlaps anyway.
Ok so the AK74s used the same Bakelite (and wood) PGs until plum came along?....and how do I know what the later bakelite looks like?

That would be the shiny plumb grips,Stottman do you have any avaliable?
The shiny plum grips (used on AKS74s and Krinks) are different from the "normal" AKM/early AK74 grips, which are often called maroon grips. Besides the color, they are slightly different sizes.

The maroon grips come in a range of colors, some approaching the shiny plum grip color, but the maroon grips are slightly bigger.

They seem to be the hardest part to find,I have one I bought from Finnbear and finally picked up another one from Stottman a few months ago.

Here's a photo showing the differences between the maroon & shiny plum grips.



Besides the color difference, notice how the shiny plum grip fits the reinforcng plate under the receiver and the maroon grip overhangs it both front and back (arrows).
