Best AKS/AKMS underfolder for the money

I'm looking at getting another AK to go with my wasr here in a few months and want something a bit different, so i thought "why not an underfolder?" i know the stock isn't the most comfortable to shoot with but i just love the look of underfolders (and all other AK's ) i've looked around online a good bit and have seen many different varieties of underfolders, i just want to know what yall think is the best one for the money that isn't more than about $1000, milled or stamped

I think the Yugo U/F is the best. And I actually prefer an U/F stock to the standard wood variety.

Underfolder N-PAPs or actual M70s? the price of both looks to be around the same

One rifle in particular that has caught my eye are these Hungarian AK63Ds, which after looking on gunbroker and a few other places, it seems that while most of these have milled recievers, there are a few of these with stamped recievers

I heard the Polish ones are really good to have, they look great and work better that WASRs. If I was getting one thats what I would do.

Yeah I've heard great things about polish AKs including underfolders, they just seem harder to find and cost more than they did a few years ago

Mine is an M70, so that's what I meant. I don't have any experience with the PAPs.

I have a Polish underfolder that was built by Century on a new American-made receiver. It has been flawless and incredibly accurate with good ammo. I got it about three years ago for $500, but they seem to be $700 and up these days. I highly recommend them, even at the current price. The underfolder stock makes these rifles really unique. They fold up to about 26 inches in length and are perfect for when a compact rifle may be needed. To retain its compactness, I usually run Hungarian 20-round tanker mags in mine, which are about the length of an AR mag.

They seem like good quality rifles, i haven't heard anything bad about them especially for the fairly low price tag they have, i just find myself turned off slightly by the off-looking handguard yugos have and the odd-looking grenade sight on the gas block of the M70s... im not ruling them out though, cause i mean hey, it's still a good quality low-priced underfolder AK, i'd still like to have one of these at some point anyway as well as a full stocked M70

Hey, you may want to fire some grenades some day! My Yugo and one of my Israeli Mausers share the same grenades. Now if I could just get my range to allow me to toss some down-range.............

Not only can you fire grenades with the Yugo, you can fire them at night.
Not sure if all the M70's came this way, but mine has flip-up night sights front and rear. I just need to replace the little glowing rods and they'll be good to go.

The Yugo AK's, including the NPAP folder, are a best buy right now and are very high quality, as long as you don't mind a non-chrome lined bore. As with many imported AK's there can sometimes be QC issues. Atlantic Firearms actually performs a QC check on their N-PAP folders that should help weed out the worst ones.

I do like the look of NPAPs, the polished bolt carrier is a nice touch imo
