Hello all,

Im wondering if an underfolder ak-47 milled from Lancaster arms is worth getting for 1200 ( the price now due to high demand).

My main concern is the underfolder. Is it worth getting one? Will it eventually be loose where it'll be uncomfortable to shoot? Should i go with the wood stock instead for a 100 cheaper and later down the road i can always upgrade to underfolder?


I already have a Saiga 762x39 converted to an original looking Kalashnikov with full wood stock.

Is it a mistake to get the UF on milled reciever if i shoot a lot? I wouldnt want the stock to get loose after few times to the range.

Any suggestions?

If you're worried about an underfolder becoming uncomfortable to shoot, just get a straight stock. UFs aren't very face/cheek friendly until you wrap it with paracord, and even then it isn't the best feeling. IMHO, they look cool, but they were designed for a very specific purpose where some comfort had to be sacrificed.

Lancaster makes nice AK's but no way I'd pay 1200 for an AK!

For $1200?! Get an AR with the Adams Arms Gas Piston. This is from an AK fan. I myself have a Saiga (7.62x39), unconverted save the piston and the TAPCO 6-Pos stock I have for it, and a surefire 30 rounder. Total cost of all that: $430 dollars.

Unless that Lancaster is Milled, and has all the rails and the under-folder, its not worth it.
