The Ultimate AK 47 for Meth-head/Zombie eradication.

Awesome-Zombie-TargetA plague of meth heads has consumed the Nation’s Midwestern region.  I propose a plan that will surely eradicate these sunken cheek, scabbed face, rotted teeth zombies.  I have chosen the AK 47 platform to build upon for it’s reliability, good looks, and super hard hitting 7.62×39 chunk of lead.  In order to save our great union, I believe we should follow the Swiss and enlist able bodied men into this Zombie/Meth-head patrol at legal age and provide them with one of these weapons.  I believe it would cut down on burglaries, car-jackings, and brain eating.

For starters, we are going to need a reliable AK 47. Easy decision: Romy WASR 10, Yugo, etc… Just grab one, they are almost all reliable machines. *interesting fact: Zombies and Meth-heads are both frightened by the sound of a an AK 47 being racked* Okay, now we have our rifle. Lets get going with some of the best AK 47 accessories known to man.

mako-ak-47-tactical-folding-stockWe need a new stock, the plastic Tapco that comes attached to most Romy’s sold in the states is just a cheap compliance part. We will replace it with MAKO’s new Tactical Folding Buttstock. For those of you who aren’t familiar with MAKO, they are up and comers for solid and inexpensive AK 47 stocks. This stock is made from a heavy duty Mil-Spec polymer that won’t break, it folds tight, features a rubber butt pad, and it has an adjustable cheek piece.

Midwest-Industries-AK-47-forearm-Trijicon-RMRTime to add a new fore-grip to our gun. I chose the Midwest Industries forearm with top cover mount for Trijicon RMR fast acquisition sight. This mounting platform is sight specific. You can order them set up at the correct height for Trijicon, Aimpoint, EOTech, Burris, etc… I went with the Trijicon RMR platform. Trijicon is used by thousands of law enforcement and military officers. Midwest Industries is extremely reliable in the field and built with the best materials and the highest quality of detail. In other words, it won’t break and it wont come loose. The zero retention is impeccable and you are still able to co-witness your iron sights. Check it out here: NEW MIDWEST AK RAIL W/TRIJ RMR MNT BLK

Trijicon-RMR-sight-for-AK-47Here’s some information on the Trijicon RMR fast acquisition sight. Trijicon is built with the very highest attention to detail and is super user friendly. It maintains accuracy like no other. You can quickly and easily adjust the brightness level of the reticle with nice size buttons on either side of the unit. It uses standard CR2032 batteries and holds a great battery life. The unit is also extremely easy to mount and zero in with elevation and windage screws and will stay put. The best way to observe Meth-heads is from behind this sight. *Note: Do not attempt to feed Meth-heads or Zombies as they will become severely aggresive* Get yours here: Trijicon RMR Sight Adjustable (LED, 6.5 MOA Red Dot)

best-AK-47-Recoil-BufferNow lets address how to keep all your Meth-head/Zombie behavior modification pills going down range. There a few must have parts for your AK 47. One of those parts is the Recoil Buffer by Buffer Technologies. This rubber polymer piece sits just behind your recoil guide rod and keeps your guns metal parts from wearing too fast. It also effects felt recoil a tiny bit and in turn will help you flinch less and stay more accurate. Get it here: AK-47 Recoil Buffer

Tapco-G2-best-AK-47-triggerBest-AK-47-Retaining-Plate-by-TAPCOThe next two parts are the Tapco G2 Double Hook trigger group and the Tapco AK 47 Retaining plate. These are must haves. First off anytime you upgrade a trigger you are almost always doing yourself a favor. This will improve accuracy with smoother trigger pull and feels a lot tighter. Pick it up here for 30 bucks: Tapco AK0650-D AK G2 Trigger Group, Double
Now in order to keep all this in place, throw out that piece of crap factory “Shephards Hook” spring. After several hundred rounds it becomes loose and your trigger retention pin will start to creep. Once it crooks downward, Look Out, time for unintentional 2 and 3 round bursts and stuff getting stuck and so on. The TAPCO Retaining plate is a sure way to keep your entire trigger group in place and tight. Get it here for around 10 bucks: Tapco AK0690 AK Retaining Plate

Now you can protect you and your family from our current Meth-head/Zombie outbreak. Happy Hunting!


Just a few How To videos on the AK 47

Here is an extremely informative video for the AK 47. This video is not mine, I found it on Youtube and figured it would be helpful to visitors with common questions about the AK 47 assault rifle.

How to Field Strip and Fully Disassemble the AK 47 Assault Rifle

This is the best video I have ever seen on a full disassemble of the Ak 47. It includes how to field strip your AK 47, How to Remove Upper and Lower Hand guards from AK 47, and How to Fully disassemble the AK 47 Fire Control Group. Thank you to Iraqveteran8888 on Youtube. I hope this video answered all if not most of you questions on AK 47 Dis-Assembly.


What is the best AK 47 stock configuration?

What is the best AK 47 stock configuration?

This question is best answered by determining your application. There is no real wrong answer, just a load of options when it comes to upgrading your AK 47 with a new stock. I have tried a half dozen or so AK 47 stocks and here are several ideas for you to consider. I didn’t write the book, but I have had a tiny bit of experience. If your application is military or “contractor” then you are obviously looking for light-weight, rugged, and reliable. If all you are doing is building a fun shooter for the range and the back 40, then you are looking for inexpensive and reliable. Here are a few of my favorites based on application.

ACE-AK-47-Receiver-Block-Stock-AdapterFirst on the list are upgrades for the Operators. Typical aftermarket AK 47 stocks are a little less on the rugged and reliable side. The best option for upgrading a stamped receiver AK to an “operator friendly” assault rifle is to upgrade the trunion. On a stamped receiver AK 47 (Romanian WASR 10, etc…) the trunion is the portion of the stock that fits inside of the receiver and screws into place. VLTOR and ACE make a handful of great stock adapters for the AK 47 and variants. By upgrading with an adapter, you allow yourself the use of every one of your favorite AR 15 adjustable stocks. Both companies provide battle proven equipment.

vltor-ak-47-stock-adapterVLTOR makes the “AK47/AKM/AKS Stock Adapter and Extension“. It is designed for a fixed 5-6 position AR 15 stock to mount on your AK 47. Extremely reliable manufacturer. It will run you about 90 bucks.




ACE-AK-47-to-AR-15-stock-adapterACE Ltd makes the “AK Univeral Receiver Block with CAR Stock Adapter“. This adapter allows for an ultra snug and reliable fit. It makes your AK 47 compatible with just about any AR 15 or M 16 after market stock. ACE is an extremely reliable manufacturer of aftermarket parts for Assault Rifles. This adapter will run you around 60 dollars.

By using either of the above listed AK 47 stock adapters, you are able to breath a new “modular” life into your AK 47. You will also be secure in knowing that you are outfitting your Assault Rifle with a reliable stock modification that will stay secure when shit hits the fan. There is a reason a lot of operators in the sandbox are using AK’s and variants in their missions. US trained riflemen are far above the grade, and when you put a snug fitting reliable AK in their hands, they have one hard-hitting machine.

Now for the “weekend warriors” and “paper assassins“. You have several options when choosing a fairly reliable and inexpensive stock upgrade for your AK 47. The list goes on: Tapco, UTG, MAKO, etc… For the weekend warrior just wanting to build a fun AK 47 to shoot, these manufacturers are just fine. I don’t recommend taking any of them to the battlefield, but I assume you will gather that once seeing the price tags.

cheap-tapco-ak-47-folding-stockFirst up is my personal favorite budget AK 47 stock. The standard side folding stock by Tapco. It is available in Black, Desert, and OD Green. This little gem is priced at around $35.00 dollars and is worth every penny. Mounts up in no time and stays secure for the life of the gun. It’s super light-weight, reliable, and has a foolproof folding mechanism. Make sure to check one out for yourself. TAPCO Folding AK 47 Stock







Next is the Timbersmith Unfinished Wood AK 47 stock set. I believe Timbersmith is a venture of TAPCO. If you like the feel of a wood stock or just want to customize a wood stock set, this is where Timbersmith has you covered. The kit comes complete with upper and lower forends, pistol grip, and stock. You are able to custom finish this birch wood set in any color or stain configuration imaginable. Also, they are made in the U.S.A., so they count as 3 compliance parts. The whole set will only set you back 110 dollars. Take a look here, Timbersmith AK 47 Stock Set



MAKO is a newer company that just started making a really cool stock for the AK 47. It’s the Tactical Folding Buttstock with Adjustable Cheek piece. This thing is neat and won’t burn a hole in your wallet for what it is. The stock weighs in at around 1 lb and is extremely versatile for a small price tag of 120 bucks. This is an ambidextrous folder for the AK, meaning it can fold to the left or the right. It also has an adjustable cheek riser if you are using aftermarket optics, or if you just like a high cheek weld. I believe this particular stock is MAKO’s way of showing they are ready to compete with the big boys. It is composed of a Mil-Spec Polymer and features a super snug rubber butt pad. It is intended for use with the Stamped Receiver. Make sure to give this one a look before purchasing a folder for your AK 47. MAKO Tactical Folding Buttstock

If you have a favorite AK 47 stock configuration please feel free to comment. All insight is greatly appreciated. – Jim, GunModReview.com


Larry Vicker’s does a great informative review for the AK-47 Assault Rifle

This man is awesome and very insightful. He only tells it like it is and nothing more. There is only one factor when taking a weapon into combat, Will it reliably and accurately take down every target I engage? All of you wimps that do your nails and gel your hair can have fun with your uber-dressed out M4, but if I’m kicking in a door I’ll gladly take my AK-47.


New Midwest Industries AK Handguard and a couple other New AK-47 Accessories

Midwest Industries and US Palms teamed up and made one hell of a new Hand guard/forend for the AK-47. It is one of the most quality built AK-47 for ends I have seen. It allows for co-witnessing with most holographic and red dot optics. I think what was neat is how they counter sunk the mounting platform lower into the Hand guard’s top cover. Not only did that allow for fantastic co-witness of BUIS, but it also creates a more snag free solution and I would imagine allows for a little more protection value. Both Midwest Industries and US Palms are well known in the operator world for make extremely reliable AK-47 and AR15 accessories. MI AK Optics Hand-guard

Another cool thing that US Palms has come out with is their AKBG AK-47 Battle Grip. This is a very well made AK-47 grip constructed from the same revolutionary polymers that Tango Down uses. This grip has a water tight storage compartment for storing your “oh shit” goodies and parts. It also features a nice “hard sand” textured grip. Grip at US PALMS

Both of these accessories also have fair price-points. Be sure to check out both pieces, you can thank me later.
