There are a lot of cool aftermarket stocks out there for AK pattern rifles, one of the more popular and recent ones to hit the market is the Magpul MOE stock. Not a fan of plastic? Manticore Arms has their folding stock adapters for wood stocks that looks pretty interesting. One of the nicest features the AK has over the AR-15 is it’s ability to use a folded stock and still be able to fire. There are folding stocks for the AR-15 available but they’re mostly to reduce their size for storage and transportation.
Back to AKs, my favorite stocks for AK pattern rifles (and Krinkovs) are triangle stocks. I just think they look cool. Well CRH Customs recently released their own triangle stock and hinge that fit on AKs that already have a side folding stock rear trunnion with a 4.5mm pin. Their new stock is 9″ in length and it weights in at just 14.9 ounces. The hinge mechanism is made out of 4140 steel and has a powerful rare earth magnet to help hold it in place while folded instead of a latch. The stock is made out of 6061 aluminum and has a MILSPEC Type II hardcoat anodized finish with an non-slip grip on the buttplate. The stock also features two QD points for sling attachments.
CRH Custom’s new stock is made in the USA and is a 922(r) compliant part. They currently are going for an introductory price of $99 and are available exclusively via circle10ak.com.
