Does the MAK-90 require a different type of pistol grip screw than standard AK-47s?

Can a standard jig be used to bend the Yugo underfolder receiver flats?

Will the TAPCO AK-47 furniture also fit the AK-74?

Does the TAPCO furniture work on the Yugoslavian M90?

Because of the M90's bolt design, as compared to the standard tang design, TAPCO buttstocks do not fit the rifle. The handguard also tends to vary from the original length, causing TAPCO handguards not to fit. However, TAPCO's pistol grips are compatible.

Does the AK screw build set also work with the AMD-65?

The AK screw build set is interchangeable with both the AMD-65 and AK-47.

What is the easiest way to be completely U.S. Sec 922R compliant?

TAPCO offers many US made parts to make the AK47 compliant. Replacing the existing trigger group with the TAPCO G2 single hook or double hook trigger group is a good place to start. The trigger groups are fairly inexpensive and they count as 3 compliance parts.

If a U.S. made magazine is removed from an AK-47, does the rifle become non-compliant?

No. According to Section 922r, what makes an AK-47 non-compliant is the number of foreign made parts from a specified list of parts. You may not have more than 10 of these restricted foreign parts (Sec 922r). So removing a US made magazine would have no effect on the number of restricted foreign parts. The reason why it could be beneficial to change your foreign magazine with a US made magazine is that using the foreign magazine counts as 3 restricted parts (floorplate, follower, magazine body). So it is the removal of the foreign magazine from your rifle that affects compliance with the law, not the insertion or removal of the US made magazine.

Does the AK high capacity magazine follower (MAG0654) hold the bolt open when the magazine is empty?


How should I clean my AK furniture with a printed pattern such as ACU?

Warm soap and water is recommended to clean the printed finish of all TAPCO products. Extra care should be taken to avoid the contact of harsh chemicals such as DEET (insect repellent), aliphatic hydrocarbons (mineral spirits/paint thinner), kerosene, acetone, turpentine, brake cleaner, bore cleaner, and lubricants like WD-40.
