    I have a draco that I'm thinking about SBR'ing. Before i send out for my stamp. i just wanna ask a few questions. My draco isnt pretapped for an underfolder like i hear some are. so which would be cheaper. to just go for the underfolder. or put a sidefolder on it? i'd prefer the sidefolder but i just wanna check price/labor first?

    There are several threads about it here:


    I just did mine and went with drilling and tapping the underfolder trunnion and installing a VZ58 side folder.

    Lots of folks say the trunnion is not strong enough but mine was ~3/8" thick where I drilled and tapped. Cutting the threads was a bear, if its a "cheap casting" then Irwin taps are junk.

    Here is a quick pair of photos. Its instantly become my favorite AK.



    Got about 500 rounds through it so far and zero issues. That US made "fake" Krinkov break really works!

    Very nice stubbie AK. One of these days I will get around to a SBR AK.

    I like sidefolders better, but side folders and underfolders suck to shoot, you just cant get a good cheek weld and they will wear out the side of your face.

    Most side folders are too short for me so I went with the side folding collapsible Magpul that works perfectly and it dosent look too bad.
