    This came up not too long ago and no I don't believe you can...I mean you can't just take it off and snap something back on without some smithing.









    (I could totally be wrong though)

    Yep, i think Bazooka Joe's right, no changing out UF stocks without major surgery. You're best bet, do like i am.......sell the SOB !!!! I haven't even shot mine yet !!! I'm waiting on a buddy to get his gubment income tax check.

    You can buy a whole 'nuther AK for about what it would cost to convert that one.

    Same money, double the guns.

    Its the new math.

    Wrap the inside arm of the stock (whichever side your cheek is going to be placed on) with 550 cord. Some people apparently also use plumbing insulation to do the same thing. Either will give you a bit of cushion and better cheek weld when shooting.
