THE IMAGE ABOVE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT
I haven't seen this posted online anywhere yet but while making my way through the NRA show this weekend in Houston, I stumbled across the Century Intl. booth. On the table I spotted a "pistol stabilizing brace" specifically for pistol AK models. Ignoring the advertised purpose for these I think it will be a good solution for AK owners behind enemy lines who are not allowed SBR's or for those of us that want to save the $200 for a NFA stamp. It is just like the AR version about to be released by Sig seen here:

According to the Century rep they already have ATF approval and will be released in the next couple months.

This looks like one of those things ATF will approve, and then go back on their word when they suddenly realize people use them illegally as stocks instead of arm wraps....

There is a thread in GD discussing this. Someone already got one. They're good to go apparently but yes BATF could change there mind at anytime. Personally I don't there any worse than the slidefire and that's still hangin around.

Not interested. You still can't get it on your shoulder. Not much a difference in my opinion.

Sig has one out for AR buffer tubes but the one Century had was specifically for AK's. It is a knock off of the Sig design but at least you don't have to buy a AK to M4 stock adapter and pistol buffer tube to use the one from Century.

Hmmm, this sparks some thought....

if Ar15 pistols are still pistols with buffer tubes,

are ak's pistols still considered pistols if one were to put a buffer tube on the back?

I understand Ar's buffer tube is part of the action and function of the bolt.

Im asking simply from brainstorming.... i Know a lot of people put tennis balls on the back of Ar pistol buffer tubes and use them comfortably as stocks, could you do the same with an AK pistol without having to get the tax stamp?

A. So century put out a knock off product at the same show the real manufacturer out out the product for the first time?

B. So you are saying that the century AK product comes with a stock addapter that at the same time would not SBR your draco?

A. Yes
B. Essentially yes, I wouldn't really call it an adapter though. It is a unique part, the only thing that is an exact copy of the sig product is the rubber part that goes around the rear of the "stock tube" and your wrist.

This. It looks awful and I am sure Century put their finest chimp engineers on the project of making it as cheaply as possible.

meh

Personally (if I simply wanted to avoid the NFA-SBR process) I would rather have an AK with a folding stock and a 16" barrel with no muzzle device.

But that's just me
