My receiver is from Iron Hammer Armory, and is very well made to my eye....I don't like to beat a dead horse, and all the input I have received in this thread is very good stuff, and am grateful for the responses. I need to think about this decision hard.
I'm torn for 2 reasons.....
1) I really like the original look of things whether its cars or guns(even if its ugly to some)
2)And from my experience things generally hold more value if it is all matching and original (my AMD kit is all matching numbers)
But, ..... for the time being, this will be my only AK @ $600+, so it will see some substantial range time. So that makes me wanna lean towards fixed.
Basically, if i put a folder on it, its gonna be the AMD stock (w/amd65tech.com cheek weld bar), nothing else. But if i go with fixed, it will probably be collapsible to accommodate my wife and friends.
mtdew.....does you amd65 stock lock up nice and tight...or does it have some play? Im really picky about having only excellent working parts.....so that might help me make a better, easier decision.
Thanks again, and sorry for going on and on about such a trivial topic.
