I need to re-stock my Maadi AKM and am torn as to which stock set to put on it. I can't decide between the US-made fixed faux Krinkov stock by RPB or the plum colored AK74 furniture by K-Var. I like them both and US parts count is not a consideration, so I would like to hear from those who have the RPB stock on their rifle and opinions of same. Also a request, if you have either the RPB stock or the plum furniture on your weapon post some pics so I can get a visual cuey.
Thanks in advance.

Here is a poor quality pic of my SAR 2 with the RPB stock(rifle on the right). I have been very happy with the stock. I have had Bulgarian synthetic furniture(similar to the KVAR plum), and was very happy with it as well. I have been using the RPB as I really like the look of it, and it is comfortable to shoot with.
Both AKs will be getting Romanian folders on Sept 14. Not so much because I like them(I prefer the fixed stocks), but BECAUSE I CAN!

I plan to add a folder on my SAR-1. Aside from that, I use plain wood furniture. I have a set of Dragunov furniture around that I don't use.
