If you have your WASR laying around without a stock, it is a Felony as the total length is too short. You would have to register it as a short barreled rifle. This will cost you $200 for the tax stamp.I recently removed the fixed wooden stock from my WASR 10 (AK-47 variant) and registered it as a pistol. I'm looking to either attach a underfolding stock or a side folding stock.
First of all, what kind would be better? What are the pro's & con's of each (if any). What kind/brand would you suggest and why?
Second, are the easy to install on my own? It looks like I would have to remove a rivet to install the underfolding stock (I'm not sure about the side folder, I have never seen one on an AK in person).
Third, how do I install either on my type of rifle (now technically a pistol)? Any links?
Does the state of Michigan require you to "register" a folding stock rifle as a "pistol" for their purposes? There is nothing necessary to physically add a side folding stock to your WASR other than bolting it on.
