Ok here's the deal, I want to buy an AMD-65 and put this kit

on it, is that possible? Can AMD-65's take foregrips like that or do they have to be modified to do so? I want to make it like The Punisher's custom AK, which seems to just be an AMD-65 with that set of "furniture" (sorry for the blurry picture, couldnt find one much clearer)

The lower handguard and pistol grip are the only parts that will go on an unmodified AMD65. The gas tube is shorter and lacks the upper handguard mount. You can shorten a stock AKM tube though. The stock is about the only thing you cannot swap short of removing the rear trunion and installing a fixed stock trunion (and filing the holes in the receiver).
