Well, I think I have settled on how I want this rifle. This was the first AK in my collection, I bought it already converted , I never liked the original handgaurd and Tapco stock that was on it. I have since put the rail on it, "clubfoot" stock and threaded the barrel to add the AMD muzzle device. I will probhably weld the extra holes in the reciever and coat the entire gun....someday. The pistol grip looks a little too Batman for me, but it's comfy, so it will stay. I need to come up with a sling for it , but other than that it's done.
