Ruger 10/22 Folding Stock AK47 style from MBW Stocks

With over 6 million Ruger 10/22 made it’s no surprise that there are several stock kits available.

MBWSTOCKS from Pszczyna, Poland, has just added another option if you want to upgrade yours.

What is extra cool with this one is that the under folding stock in metal is from an original AK47. It’s made out of steel, black oxide and described as very solid.

This might not be the most ergonomic thing to shoulder, but the space saving it offers is genial.

If the stock can take the recoil of a 7,62×39 a .22LR should be no problem.

  • Klaus

    Very reminiscent of the stocks made by Federal Ordinance for the Ruger mini’s

    • Twilight sparkle

      That’s what I thought, I remember reading from someone that claimed they used to work at federal ordinance that they got some of their manufacturing from over seas, if that was true I wonder if it could have been this company.

      • Brett baker

        Probably not, iirc the cold war sanctions were still in place when Federal sold those stocks.

    • Samuel Millwright

      Aka the A team stock?

      • PK

        Those just destroy the accuracy.

      • Twilight sparkle

        The a team stock was a better produced factory stock from ruger

        • Samuel Millwright

          I like that stock … Matter of fact, I love that stock enough to buy a …

          Haha nope

          • Twilight sparkle

            At least you can still get a gb for cheap, you just gotta settle for a non folding stock

      • Klaus

        Like twilight said Ruger made factory side folders. A higher quality stock for sure.

  • CSBD

    They also make one for the Nagant… probably not the most comfortable to shoot, but easy to store.

    • Michael Boudreaux

      Yeah, the first one i saw was for the nagant and yes, it looks cool, but i can only imagine the recoil imprint on your shoulder.

      • Alahahahah

        And your face

  • Joe

    Wish someone (Norinco) had come up with this for the SKS 25 years ago, beats the ugly Zytel folders hands down.

  • Twilight sparkle

    I saw these a few days ago, I wish they’d do one for a mini 14 though I guess it could be hard to get your hands on a mini over in Poland.

    • randomswede

      I’m not sure they have a 10/22 so I’m thinking they are working off of measurements of some sort.

  • SGT Fish

    not a single picture of one actually installed on a rifle?

    • Zebra Dun

      Like Playboy without Nudes!

  • Bob

    Would like for someone to remake the Federal Ordinance Underfolder Stock for the Mini-14. Fed Ord made them for the 10/22 also.

    But I have an older Mini-14 that is begging for some 1980s retro stock action.

  • Kelly Jackson

    They’re cool, but I’d love to see one for the Mini 14 too

  • drambus

    Just need these for SKS and Mini-30s

  • PK

    I wonder how hard it would be to convince them to do one of each the 10/22 and Mosin stocks with a shorter fore-end… these would be perfect for my SBRs.

    • Alahahahah

      Buy a saw and rasp for $20

      • PK

        While I appreciate the practical advice for those who don’t do woodworking or metalworking, I’d rather not make a hack job of it. If you look at the inside muzzle end of the offered stocks, they’re hollowed out and have a step at the end. If I were to shorten them myself, I would end up with an open channel or a mismatched splice.

        If I’m spending $150+ on a range toy sort of stock, I might as well ask and see if they can accommodate me. They’re a small company, who knows!

    • Lee Enfield

      If we ever get rid of the $200 SBR tax this thing would have a future.

  • Anon

    Those are less ak style and more toz-106 clone esque

  • Shankbone

    The second video is oddly satisfying to watch.

  • Raoul O’Shaughnessy

    $180, inc shipping, is only twenty bucks less than dealer cost on a brand new 10/22. For half that money I can get a Butler Creek side folder that won’t wobble, is probably more durable, and can be picked up in any Cabelas or large gun shop.

  • Blake

    Wow, what a coincidence: when I woke up this morning the first thing that popped into my mind was “You know, my 10/22 isn’t ugly enough & I have $150 burning a hole in my pocket”…

    (apologies in advance for the cynicism)

  • Bert

    Does this come in m1 carbine? I need one of those… for reasons.

    • Cymond
      • Bert

        Thank you, but no. I meant I want a wood folding stock for an m1 carbine.

        • Cymond

          Ooohhhh, sorry, thought you wanted a 10/22 stock in M1 Carbine style. Now I see you want a Carbine stock in this 10/22 style. Oops!

  • ozzallos .

    $155… For a high school shop project? Yeah, no.

    • PK

      Time has value, as well. I think they’re nice.

  • FWIW

    Anyone who has ever fired an underfolding AK knows that those stocks are absolutely awful for anything beyond looking cool and easy storage. While the minimal recoil of the 10/22 would mitigate how irritating it is to actually fire a gun with an underfolding stock, I can’t help but think almost any other solution is preferable to attempting to achieve, at best, a chin weld on a tiny sliver of stamped steel.

    • TennTexan

      “those stocks are absolutely awful for anything beyond looking cool and easy storage”

      Well that’s just, like, your opinion, man… I absolutely love my Polish underfolder AK. A Wolff XP recoil spring helps smooth it out and make the folding stock more comfortable, but it’s not bad even without the XP spring.

  • Alahahahah

    In my day these were called Schmiser stocks and the wood was walnut, not near as ugly either

    • PK

      Ash and birch are more common for stocks in some areas. Walnut would be much more expensive for them to source.

    • Lee Enfield

      I can definately appeciate ugly guns but I don’t know if this 2×4 ugliness steps over the line into gawd-awful zone of ugly AND cheap-looking.

  • Arie Heath

    Kind of wish Ruger would come out with the AC556 folding stocks for for the 10-22 or Mini 14. Just so I can relive the A Team.

    • DJ9r

      I agree. Those were rock-solid on the shoulder, too; no wiggle at all.
      Probably a bit heavy for a .22, but hey, choices, right?

  • Gun-Toting Racist

    These might actually fly in CA?

    (a) Notwithstanding Section 30510, “assault weapon” also means any of the following:

    (1) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that does not have a fixed magazine but has any one of the following:

    (A) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.
    (B) A thumbhole stock.
    (C) A folding or telescoping stock.
    (D) A grenade launcher or flare launcher.
    (E) A flash suppressor.
    (F) A forward pistol grip.

    (2) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

    (3) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.

    • PK

      Rimfire rifles haven’t been impacted by CA law anywhere near as much as centerfires, correct.

  • FulMetlJakit

    Probably being overly pedantic here but
    Aren’t these folders from AKMSs, not 47s?

    But, you know, marketing.

    • borekfk

      They did make a small number of underfolding AK-47s as the AKS.

  • dc

    Damn that looks cool.
