Our Assessment:  The AKM Triangle Side-Folding Stock with Trunnion is versatile and designed specifically AKM-style rifles. Crafted with Russian durability and functionality in mind, this stock features a triangular design that allows for a compact and streamlined profile when folded to the side. The connection to a trunnion ensures a secure and stable connection to the rifle, providing a robust foundation for enhanced shooting performance. As an AK owner I believe this AKM in particular would make an excellent addition to any collection. If you want a gun you can count on to always go “BANG” it’s the AK platform. As stated the side folder is just an added bonus.

Good Bidding my friends, Kris F.
