    Question WTK: Correct rear trunnion for Russian AKMS

    Does anyone know what the correct rear trunnion is for a Russian AKMS?
    Would it be the single piece milled or the stamped and welded type?

    Thanks,
    Bret

    The one I had was milled and looked exactly like a milled Polish trunnion.

    Aren't the Bulgy AKs copies or close copies of the Russian models?

    Yeah, but it would be hard to find a Bulgy stamped underfolder trunnion. Not even sure if they ever made one.

    I've never even seen a stamped and welded rear trunnion.

    Many of the Polish underfolder rear trunnions were made of multiple pieces that were welded together.

    +1., the Russian used the milled type AKMS rear trunnion/block. The Early Polish were virtually identical.
    Later two other Polish stamped and spot welded types were used.

    The Russian AKMS is still a current product.

    I believe the late production rear trunnions might be investment castings. The early ones were milled.

    As far as I can tell there never was a Bulgarian factory produced stamped receiver version of the Russian AKMS.
    The Polish AK47 underfolder is a very close copy of the Russian AKMS.
