A Tourbon riser will work, it fits a little loosely around the ak stock and 7.62x39 is a little too small to stuff in the bullet holders.

What kind of (decent) furniture options exist for an M92? Is it just the handguards that are unique, or must the pistol grip be non-standard as well?

Did you buy one already on backorder? Which one did you need I have a few extras I'm probably not going to use as I have more mounts than AKs.

Yup that's the upper I need, already bought the lower since I needed the RH10 specific and it was in stock at the time. If you have any interest in parting out the upper shoot me an email at my username at gmail. No big deal otherwise since I should be able to just order one from PA or Atlantic pretty soon.

Yep dyed. The mag was sand not FDE so the dye for that was slightly different to match. Magpul never made the AK mags in FDE.

AFAIK the M92 uses AK grips. For the handguards, there's not as many options as a normal AK, but most US brands that make AK handguards make Zastava handguards as well. SLR rifleworks makes some good handguards for just about every AK config including Zastava's Yugo/Serbian patterns. Besides SLR, TDI Arms' handguards are well-liked and also come in M92 style, and I haven't heard anything bad about Midwest Industries or Manticore Arms' M92 handguards.

I'm wanting to get into the research phase of getting a new AK. I'm looking at something in the $800ish range and I think the WASR 10 fits the bill. I want a modern AK with nice new furniture and reasonably accurate. I suppose I could just upgrade my SAR-1 but I kind of want to keep it original like the old commie style. And then get a new upgraded one for my modern rifle.

Anyone have any advice on what to get? I know nothing of AKs now so anything would be appreciated. I also see that WASRs are sold out everywhere so that kinda sucks.

Anyone?

Just don't buy anything American made. Get something made in a factory where the workers are partially paid in vodka. WASR-10s are solid and that would be my choice in that price range.

Get a wasr 10 and put the Zhukov handguard and stock on it, and either a rail that replaces the rear sight or an ultimak gas tube rail

If you wanna go all the way with modernizing you can modify the dust cover and bcg to give you a left-side charging handle, and an upgraded safety

This is the way. A left side charging handle and Krebs safety makes a huge improvement in the functional controls.

Likewise the Zhukov handguard lets you really reach out and control the recoil and muzzle movement compared to the standard short AK handguard.

Yeah I considered that, but, and I'm guessing I'll get poo poo in here for it, I want a right side folder. Was thinking about a Zhukov-S, but I can't find one near me to play around with so I don't really wanna go through with the trunnion swap only to find out I don't actually like it

Why right side instead of left? You're gong to block your safety

The usual reasons that come up during left/right folding debates, plus I don't care about historicity on this. The safety thing is the only downside for me, but the times I'd want to shoot with the stock folded and didn't have an extra few seconds to fiddle with the safety are basically nil so I'm fine with it.

I have one of those style (a CNC Warrior making them for DPH Arms, IIRC) on my Draco. Takes a little grease and wearing in to smooth out being able to pull it from folded to extended, but otherwise has been good. There's also some push-button designs if you want to simplify the motion to fold, although they aren't ramped to let you just pull to unfold.

If I recall, the reason Magpul said they went with a right-side fold was to not interfere with side-mount rails

Yeah that's the one downside to having a left side folder, most won't clear a side mounted optic. It's why I went with a TWS bitty mount for my AK

Is the Magpul side folder not great? I'd like to SBR my Draco at some point, and swap the trunnion (it came with a thread-in buffer tube adapter, but I really hate the look of those), and the Magpul one seemed like it should be good (adjustable LOP, adjustable cheek rest, reputable company) but I've heard they're not great.

I really like mine, I only ever fold it to put in my backpack when I go back country camping but when deployed it feels like a fixed stock.

As an owner of multiple Zhukovs I don’t know about that. It’s not the strongest in the lockup and the LOP adjustment is really difficult to actuate and lock back in compared to other more mature adjustable stocks. And on a few of mine the whole rear section can accidentally slide off if you’re not babying when adjusting. I don’t hate it but it’s not perfect. Maybe they’ve address some of these issues in the last 2 years?
