AK 74 Skeleton stock

Howdy, I'm on the hunt for a good fixed skeleton stock for my Waffen werks AK74 anybody have any good suggestions and where to find it. I was looking at krubs but they are kinda pricey. Thanks

If your Waffen Werks is like mine, then it probably has a fixed stock. The folding skeleton stocks are not cheap, and they require you to change the rear trunion to mount them to the rifle. That means drilling rivets to get the old trunion out, and then riveting the new trunion in place, which isn't the easiest task to accomplish if your an amateur.

If you want the stock just for looks, I believe someone out there is selling a polymer non-folding version that is pretty cheap and should install with a couple a screws. If you want a folding stock, then there are simpler options available that wont require modifying the rifle.

I was looking at the ACE. I want the fixed stock non-folder. It was kinda confusing at first. In the description they called for removing the top tang and installing their block in the trunion. I think that only applied to the folding stock. I ordered the ACE fixed stock. I'm not cutting off anything on my receiver
